2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle) Black colour with quickly disappearing, foamy head. Malty, spicy nose with notes of black coffee, cocoa, dark chocolate, chilli, ginger, dark fruit and dark chocolate. Malty, spicy taste with cocoa, black coffee, ashes, liquorice, ginger, chilli and a spicy finish with a balanced roasty bitterness. Medium body, with a slight sweetness. Quite sharp carbonation. Strange beer, behaves and tastes like a soft drink with chilli, ginger and cocoa. Lots of flavours, but quite unbalanced and a bit artificial. Weird, hardly and success, but still quite drinkable.

Poured from a 12oz can I got in a trade, thanks Justin. Aroma is ginger, coffee, and caramel. Flavors are chile peppers, ginger, coffee, and roasty chocolate. Strange beer, the peppers get a lot more prevalent as you drink more. Flavorful but couldn’t drink a ton of this.

Aroma is mole, spices and hints of coffee and chocolate. The flavor is mole, coffee, chocolate, malts and medium heat in the finish.

Color is slightly lighter than expected. More of a Coca Cola type color and mouthfeel. Spicing is apparent in the aroma. Didn’t get much chocolate in the taste but could taste what seems like powered peppers with little heat. Not was I was expecting but it did enjoy it.

Bottled 355ml@Beer Hunters
Dark brown, opaque color, no head. Perfumic spicey (anise, oregano) aroma. Medium-bodied. Chilli-pepper, herbal oregano, menthol, anise. Light coffee notes. Very weird but with all these spices (which I usually don’t like in beer) somewhat interesting.

Smells of chocolate mixed with V8. Luckily it does not have V8 flavor. Slick mouth feel. One pint is more than enough.
