DSG (7456) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 16, 2015
[2/15/15] Bottle at Mikkeller Bar in San Francisco. Black with a brown head. Big roasty aroma of coffee, chili, wood and cocoa. Roasty flavor with coffee, dark chocolate, a bit of vanilla and quite a bit of chili. Finishes a bit hot. Full-bodied. Very good stuff.

javiercrasher (205) - Granada, SPAIN - MAR 16, 2015
De color negro, impenetrable a la luz, coronada por una capa de espuma marrón de corta duración. Desprende una locura de aromas: cacao, vainilla, chile y algo de barrica. Cuerpo medio, bastante cremosa y con poco gas. En boca entra el cacao y el torrefacto mientras va tomando presencia el picante del chile y un final amargo. La aportación del barril de rom creo que queda bastante apagada ante tanto ingrediente. Sin presencia de los 14 %, aunque como es normal al tomar temperatura. Un poco descompensada para ser una gran cerveza.

Pours black, small brown head. Aroma of caramel, vanilla, chocolate candy bar. Incredibly complex and rich. In taste there’s a lot of coffee, chocolate and floral notes. Full body, medium bitterness. Coffee aftertaste. Amazing.

freretoc (980) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 7, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 35.5cl à la brasserie, couleur noire, très très liquoreuse, mousse et effervescence quasi inexistante, Une bière avec un énorme nez sur la vanille pimentée. Début de bouche sur la pointe vanillée mais sucrée du Rhum assez forte sur la vanille voire le sucre vanillée. Puis fin de bouche sur les pointes épicées du poivre verte et sur le piment doux d’espelette.
