355ml bottle (Viisi Pennia, Helsinki)
Jet black, but a coca cola head. Fizz, gone. Beany beany aroma, both coffee and chilli beans. Quite a watery palate, crisp lovely balanced chilli pepper taste, fits in very well with th lovely roast. Nice coffee aspects too. Finiah is interesting, itstarts with a nice gentle chilli heat, then after 10 seconds a lovely stale coffee grounds roast takes over. As that fades, the chilli doesn’t leave you, It doesn’t pester you, but it comforts youand lets you know you’re not alone.

Can. Blackish with red edges. Peppers, chocolate, spice and toasted dark malts. A hint of spice as it warms. Not bad.

3fourths (7803) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 15, 2012
can. dark brown body, small dirty brown head. nose is almost entirely nutmeg and pumpkin spice with only a small bit of dark chcocolate dark malt. oily and syruoy with soy sauce / ink black malt, flabby, thin texture, low carbonation and starchy, husky pumpkin spice powder. very low chile presence. I made a foreign stout with chiles for my fifth batch of homebrew, it was better than this, and i am a terrible brewer.

Ughsmash (7007) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Canned. Poured deep brown with a tall, short-lived khaki head. The aroma picked up fresh, green, peppers and cocoa (some hotter spices too).. a hit of vanilla on the back.. interesting. The flavor found toasted black malt and cocoa at the core, with fresh peppers, nutmeg, and cinnamon throughout.. finished spicy with fairly generic roasted malts. Medium-bodied with a lot of spices on the palate.. ok feel and flow.

Ibrew2or3 (6530) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Can pours deep amber with a thin tan head of foam. The aroma offers up some dark roasted malts, molasses covered cinnamon graham cracker and then a nice level of chili pepper. The taste delivers dark roasted malts, some sweet molasses and a sense of cinnamon. It gets to a modest degree of chili pepper taste and heat heading into the finish. Pretty nice.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy/fizzy, brown, fully diminishing. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is lightly malty (chocolate), with notes of detergent and other assorted cleaning products (Lysol, etc.), chile peppers, nutmeg/allspice, plastic (vinyl), shoe polish, pine needles, peppermint, etc. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, syrupy/watery texture, lively carbonation, light chile burn. Blech. Aroma is a combo of really weird off-notes and of course the vegetal peppers and some holiday spices. Very random and artificial smelling, doesn’t even smell like something you would eat/drink, it’s like something that wafts out of Yankee Candle Company 20 feet from the entrance. Pretty horrific stuff, quite honestly.
