On tap. Pours jet black with a light brown head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, peppers and booze. Taste starts earthy which is followed by a medley of chocolate, coffee, vanilla and hints of pepper in the back of the throat. Goddamn tasty and super smooth considering the ABV.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

This really is a excellent beer, aromas are there, taste and feel is there, yes, pretty much everything is! Poors nicely with a rich foam, lots of coffee and choclate notes, the pepper and vanilla comes in as a nice finnish.
