flatearthman (9) - Woodbury, Minnesota, USA - DEC 3, 2015 does not count
subtle chocolate grassy nose; very little head (from chili’s); front pallet taste is a bit like bitter medicine; taste is balanced with cocoa nibs and a subtle chili flavor. I really don’t taste much coffee or vanilla bean flavor as advertised. Back pallet taste has a bitter / burnt molasses type flavor.

Svart med nästan inget skum. Väldigt söt smak med choklad och chili på slutet. Väldigt len och trevlig. Gillar! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A nice sweet cocoa aroma. The flavor has a nice blend. It taste of bitter dark chocolate, sweet cocoa, coffee and sweet marshmallows with a shallow bite of chile at the end. A good treat for dessert!

libertine (340) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - NOV 26, 2015
Pours black with very thin brown head. Aroma is Heavy on the coffee. When I opened the bottle it reminded me of a pot of coffee that was left on the burner too long. Notes of vanilla, chocolate, and chilis. Flavor is coffee with notes of vanilla and chocolate. Getting the heat from the chilis right away. The chilis really compliment this beer. Medium/full bodied with a spicy bitter finish. Really good.

jercraigs (9154) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 24, 2015
2015-11-12. Black body with a decent sized tan head. 3+ Aroma has a load of dry roasty coffee character with slightly odd but pleasant cocoa and dark fruit undertones. Vaguely smokey, or is that in my imagination? 7+ Flavour is intense on first sip. Big sweet dark malt base, notes of cocoa, moderate hot pepper character. Hints at cinnamon? Smooth average plus to medium bodied palate, soft carbonation. 3++ Well done but not really to my own tastes. I think I would prefer it without the peppers but at the same time, it might be less interesting without them. 7/3/7/4/14-15 Bottle from Sherbrooke Liquor, Edmonton.
