Pour a pitch black color, thick, with brown medium sized head.
The aroma is very interesting; there are waves of good coffee, burnt bread, liquorice, hints of tobacco and incense.
Strong body, not thick, with a smooth and round mouthfeel; it has more roasted malt flavor than chocolate, a bit ashy, but luckily it has a moderate residual sweetness to support, also a slight acidity; the peppers provide a nice counterpart and complexity, with mild hotness; unfortunately there is too much liquorice, although it’s less evident while taking more sips.
For this kind of beer, the final is weaker than expected, short, and vague.
A good beer, more chaotic than complex, not impressive.

Bottle, 12oz. Batch 4, 13%. A gusher, producing a black body under a small, dense, tan head. Lots of coffee and chocolate on the nose, with some cocoa powed, hints of vanilla and a roasted note. Some dark sugars. A faint note of green chilies too. In the flavor the coffee is a bit toned down, leaving more room for the chili. The chili leaves flavor, but not much burn. Actually, the chili burn and alcohol burn combined doesn’t make me think 13-14 % ABV at all. Caramel sauce and some vanilla too. Full-bodied, lightly warming and with a low, soft and pleasant carbonation level. Lasting finish with lots of coffee and some chocolate and chili. Damn, this is wonderful. Wonderful and even more wonderful. 140616
