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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft in Washington, DC - where else? Admits no light. Brown head. Aroma of licorice, burnt rubber, espresso pot that’s been left on the burner for three days. Taste is burnt bitter espresso, burnt smouldering brownies, anise. Definitely a big beer, my throat burns now, and the finish lasts half an hour. Reminds me of a lite version of Mikkeller Black.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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
