Had this in a snifter glass at Maria’s in Chicago. Had a great viscosity and thickness as well as a lovely hint of chili spice on the finish and nose. Perfectly roasted malts add to the nicely balanced flavor. The heart is strong in this one, folks.

Bottle at Bishop’s Arms, Malmö, Gustav Adolf Torg
Dark brown color with no head. Appreciated aroma of spicy, chili coffee. Dry mouthfeel, well carbonated; basically roasted malt flavor, but the chili and spice combination makes it feel like a winter cake. Not my style but fairly brewed.

Bottled. Dark ruby color, no head. Rum&cola-aroma, cinnamon, some roasted malts and molasses. Dark chocolate notes with sweet caramel malts and fruity chili. Slight chili warmth in the finish. Unpleasantly soda-like carbonation. Medium body.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Black pour with no head. Cinnamon dominates the aroma. Flavor is full of cinnamon, chocolate and spice. Mouth is little light, but the taste is great. Not overly sweet. The pepper taste is kind of vegetal, but it doesn’t ruin it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a silky dark brown, almost black. The aroma is awesome of roasted malts, cinnamon and some chiles. Taste is bubbly up front with some sweet spices and a warming heat at the back of the throat. Not overly complicated and that is a good thing. Flavors are there and pretty balanced for the style.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
