Plechovka. Tmavá farba, hnedá pena. Vona sladka, kakaova. Chut na zaciatku kyselkava, sladka, zlahka karamelova. Neskor kakaove tony, mliecna cokolada, na konci pikantne. Velmi slaba nasytenost.

Can kindly donated by Karol. Very dark colour. No head to speak of. Aroma toffee, chocolate, sweetish. Taste is simple kind of milk stouty in the beginning. Then the chillies explode all over the place. Fortunately not overtly intense. However it is too singledimensional in my eyes. Boring. Only toffeeish malt in the beginning and chilli later with little to none balance. Flat, lacking carbonation. Good though.

Can bought at an LCBO in Toronto/Canada. Dark almost pitch black color with a solid and stable beige head. Aroma is fantastic! Coffee, roasted malt, espresso, spices in the back. And now the taste. The cayenne spice is awesome! Coffee, roasted malt, espresso, dark chocolate very well balanced with the cayenne spice. Just like a guiness with frank’s red hot haha. Anyway, a great spiced beer!
