4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Massive aromas of chocolate, toffee, dark cacao, cocoa powder, sharp chile pepper skin, raisins, coffee, dark malts and burnt caramel. Pours pitch black with absolutely no foam whatsoever. Taste is massively complex with silky smooth chocolate, chocolate milk, dark malt syrup, toffee, caramel, tons of light vanilla creme, espresso, and a domination of of chile pepper. Finishes remarkably smooth with residual chocolate syrup, chile pepper, vanilla and hints of latte. Overall, very impressive. Tons of flavors going on but they somehow all come together so well. Chile pepper is definitely present but brings no heat, neither does the alcohol for that matter. Very impressive.

This is the one beer that blew me away the first time I had it. There are many great stouts out there, but in my humble opinion this is the one that sits on the thrown

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle from SB 150623.
Tar black with a dark brown surprisingly weak vanishing head. Very rich taste but with very much vanilla. A bit too sweet but with a nice bite from the chili. Also a beatufil coffee taste. An exceedingly rich and nice imp stout but just a wee bit too sweet.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A great interesting, yet heavy beer. Pours a deep, super thick black with a tan head. Smells of chocolate, coffee, vanilla and slight chilis. Taste is like a milk shake, with lots of coffee and vanilla, some chocolate and some warming chilis in the finish. Good stuff. Had in the bottle.
