LoFi (1710) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 14, 2013
Bottle. Black with a dark brown tinge, the head is sizzling and disappears quickly. Aroma: wood, cocoa, coffee beans, light acetone, chili peppers eventually. Taste: medium hot chilis with cayenne and ancho in the finish, cocoa, light licorice, some cream, vanilla. Woody, dry finish. Medium bodied. For me, this isn’t too bad, but not completely successful.

12oz cans, new to Hops & Vines! Pours darkish with a tan off white head. Aromas of cinnamon, clove, & slight Ancho pepper. Flavor is medium bodied (for a stout) the peppers are more in the taste but still subtle. The milk sugar (lactose) is noticeable in the flavor and finish giving it a weird blend of a milk stout and spiced ale combo. Overall a well balanced novelty beer. I got some Ancho pepper when I belched afterward. No to little heat in the beer itself.

Okay, so I bit on this one despite my general aversion to SKA products, mostly because I love stouts with cocoa/chocolate and/or peppers and there are so few of them out there - pour is clear dark brown - initially fizzy, but quickly turns headless and almost still, looking like flat cola - interesting nose, with a complex mix of cinnamon, anise, dates, light cocoa, a hint of smoke, perhaps from the peppers, but no pepper character to speak of - carbonation is low to non-existent and the beer is thin and flabby in the mouth, which is a damn shame because there are some good things happening here - some lactose sweetness up front - followed by drier notes of cocoa, moderate cinnamon, some tartness, date, raisin - slight heat on the tongue, but the spiciness really comes through as a strong warmth at the back of the throat - some interesting and enjoyable individual parts, but as a whole it is a little weak - seems like an attempt to replicate Copper Kettle Mexican Chocolate Stout (suspiciously so, like they were literally trying to copy it) - Copper Kettle’s is much better and quite a bit spicier.

Spicy..can definitely taste the chilis in it. I liked the taste but found it to smell of plastic and general metallic weirdness. Overall pretty good as the spice overcame the smell.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Serving: 12 oz. can. It pours a muddy brown color with a fading light brown head. The nose has some fruity smoked chili notes. The flavor highlights fruity chili notes, red pepper, smoked chili powder, cocoa powder, and slight roasted malt notes in the distance. This one is clearly about the peppers. Medium body with a long finish. It’s unusual which isn’t bad but it’s so different it’s not one I would want another of.

olio (9276) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 7, 2012
355 ml bottle @ Pub Kultainen Apina, Tampere.
Pours dark red color with no head. Aroma of spices, some herbs, malts and pepper. Flavour of malts, spices like pepper, cardamum, apple pie, biscuits and some chocolate, faint dry cocoa powder notes also. Dry spicy palate. Weird.

beer_est_deus (1147) - örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 21, 2012
Svart/Coca Cola färgad med minimal skum som snabbt som attans försvinner. Doft: Kanel, chili, kaffe, gräddkola, kardemumma. Smak: Kakao, kardemumma, kanel, chili, bränt socker, kaffe, laktos, övermogen banan. Passar nog bra till wok.

Vignale (3316) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 24, 2012
Flaska från SB. Ser ut som en coca cola när man häller upp men skummet är borta på ett par sekunder. Ganska komplex chilidoft med grön paprika, jalapeno, chipotle, men också kanel. Lätt och lite platt kropp med samma fina smakrika men inte särskilt starka grön chili och chipotle, kanel, coca cola och gräsiga örter. Kul och annorlunda, men kanske mer annorlunda än bra och därför svår att betygsätta.

beerandbeyond (708) - ISRAEL - FEB 8, 2013
12oz can poured into a wine glass. Opaque black with no head. Aromas of dark chocolate, espresso and wood grilled peppers, with hints of smoke and chicory. Chocolaty flavors, roasted malts, noticeable spiciness but not extreme, faint tartness and medium bitterness. Light-med bodied and quite dry, interesting but not satisfying enough to finish the hole glass.
