My favourite of the selection at C’est What tap takeover. The cayenne pepper and some roast draws one in. Starts with the cayenne, finishes with coffee. Dark brown. No head. Very good drinkability.Smooth mouthfeel.

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!

Hazy dark black-brown with a decent beige head. Aroma is spicy, chocolate & vanilla. Taste is similar but with some peppery notes. Medium body. Drinkable.

Disapointed with this one a bit. :( some bitterness, a lot of cayenne pepper smell and at times a little coffee and chocolate. Taste the beer drys out right away and is kinda bitter with lots of cayenne. The cayenne is a bit much and not done in a good way.

Pours black with a thin beige/brown head. Aroma is spicy, coffee, roasty malts and a bit sweet. Mild malty sweetness with a roasty bitter finish with some pepper spice. Medium body & carbonation.

Creedence (286) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 6, 2015
Tall boy from LCBO. Pours a deep black with a touch of chocolate brown around the edges, and a thin brown bubbly head on top. Aroma is enticing and complex, with a decent roast malt backbone followed by a bittersweet chocolate and coffee combination. Taste is initial full malt sweetness, followed by a shortlived burnt malt bitterness, roasted coffee and then finishing on a decent chilli heat. Body is lovely and full, with a prickly but even mouthfeel and a lingering spicy finish that turns to a nice light coffee flavour. Quite an exceptional beer, actually.

Pours black with a small frothy beige head. Aroma is spicy, roasted malts and coffee. Taste is much the same, rich coffee and roasted malts up front and then the hot spice sets in and warms the mouth. Just not really my thing.
