Tasted 7/8/11. 22oz bomber. #51/165. Thanks to phaleslu for sharing! Pours dark and pitch with a trace tan head. Aromas of earthy, vegetal notes with a smokey malt aspect. Burnt marshmallows and a good dose of peppers. Full bodied and hot with a big palate. Odd, yet surprisingly rounded. The peppers and the heat are apparent, but they blend decently with the barrel aging. Good heat, good body and nicely blended. It got the silver from the series.

Bottle share at DLD 2014. Pour is black with some slight red tinge along the edges. Aroma and flavor of spice, peppers, dark chocolate, dark fruit, raisins, and cocoa. Finish is slick and spicy with the sweetness balancing it out. Good.

5/26 - My goodness this was a fine fine beer. Fine enough for me to post a rating for the first time in years on RateBeer! Of course it’s black and oily with essentially no head. It’s hard to say if there was any carbonation - I think there was some, but the perhaps that was an alcoholic sparkle! There was no alcoholic burn or unpleasant presence, much to my later chagrin. The aroma was beeaaautiful! Chocolate and baked cherry, bourbon, and prune and coffee and peppers all in one! The taste was similar, layers of malt, chocolate, coffee, bourbon sweetness, fruits, and gorgeously balanced with the spiciness of the chili, which was warming and flavorful but not domineering at all. Very round thick mouthfeel. I was surprised that I decided to open it for as lowly an event as my birthday, but I did, and it was wonderful. And I got sick with glory.

Mikkeller Vik. Orange waxed bottle with a black and white ’Muerte’ sticker on the cap and clearly printed Moscatel on the side. Apparently a cock up and this Is Bourbon Muerte. Three Floyds tap takeover. Bottle share with loadsa Ratebeerians! Opaque black - brown beer, small pale tan head. Palate is surprisingly light. Mild fine carbonation. Sweet dark malts, a fruity vibe on top. The chilli starts to itch but it’s not overwhelming and provides a nice counterpoint to the sweet dark malts. Light finish. Sweet heat!

From notes from the beer dinner @ Mielcke & Hurtigkarl. Aroma is dominated by green chili, dark fruits, red berries, dark caramel, caramelized almonds, brownies. On the palate this motherfucka is all kinds of crazy - intense chili making it very hot, a lot of sweet, sugary notes, chocolate, caramel. You think the sweetness becomes WAY too much, but then the chili kicks in and supplies this beer with a ballsack the size of Quasimodo’s hunch. Truly intense, but, in the end, good. END NOTE: Thanks to Kermis, I got to try a bit yesterday evening, and I have to say that it mellowed out quite nicely - the chili had already faded quite much, making it even smoother, but still balanced by the chili. Didn’t score it this time, but it probably would’ve been higher.

jmgreenuk (4006) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle at the Three Floyd’s tap takeover @ Milkeller Viktoriagade. Poured an oily dark mahogany with a thin whispy tan head. The aroma is rich malt, molasses, vinous. The flavour is strong sweet with a smooth chilli pepper spice oily chocolate palate. Full bodied with flat carbonation. Just loved everything about this beer. Nice and spicy but not overpowering. Leaves a lovely warm feeling in your mouth long after you finished drinking it.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2014 Bottle shared at Mikkeller bar. Pours near black with a small brown head. Aroma is chillis up front, vegetal and fruity with vinous notes and some caramel. Flavour is heavy sweet and moderate bitter. Normal dark lord character coming out strong in the palate with the chillis constantly warming and growing with each sip. Full bodied with soft carbonation.
