Ok So I love pepper beer! And except for the almost non existent head this was beer was really really great! Tastes of chocolate, wood, vanilla and a medium spiced pepper.

Desverger (7970) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2016 Bottle@Danish Ratebeer Summer Gathering 2016 - Black pour with tan head. Roasted malty with a harsh chilli burn, aspects of this I liked, but overall the chilli balance was way too overt even for my chili friendly palate.

omhper (23313) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2016
Bottled at TNOD(U)RBSG2016. Black, minimal head. Mild smokey chili and milk chocolate up front. Very sweet with full body and well rounded mouthfeel. Vanilla, chocolate and interesting ancho chili heat. Bell pepper, sugar, chili, vanilla and licorice. Severe chili burn in the finish. Chili and alcoholic beverages usually mix badly. Still this beer has lots of upsides. The chili combination is exquisite. Wish I had it in my snack, not in my beer.

Rasmus40 (17417) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2016
Bottle @ fonefan tasting. Black without head. Aroma is sweet, roasted malt, chocolate, wood and cognac. Flavor is extremely sweet and rather bitter. Extremely sweet finish with heavy alcohol and a devastating chili burn. No thanks. 200816

martin00sr (2692) - Haderslev, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2016
TNOD(U)RBSG16. Black, no head. Smoky chili aroma. Spicy, chili flavour, Rather hot - you still get the flavour underneath, but the (tasty - I’ll admit that) chili quickly masks everything else.

Koelschtrinker (16789) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 20, 2016
Der vollmundige runde Malzbeginn wird jäh durch scharfe Noten unterbrochen. Die Malzigkeit ist definitiv hintergründig, die Chilinoten sind zu stark, zwar nicht untrinkbar, aber doch so stark die Aromen dahinter zu zerstören. Das Ganze zerstört zu viel um gut zu sein. 12/8/7/8/11/8

Benzai (13591) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2016
Sampled from bottle @ Danish Ratebeer Gathering 2016, Ulfborg, Day 2. Opaque pitch black color, no head. Aroma is ok: malts, sweetness, cognac barrel. Taste is pretty bad, malts, way too alcoholic, way too much chili peppery burn for me, undrinkable imo. Not good.

saxo (16724) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2016
Bottle @ Danish Ratebeer Summer Gathering, fonefan. Small head with short duration. Color is black. Aroma and taste are rich roast malt, chocolate, coffee, rich chillies and hops. Light burning finish.

BuckeyeSammy (609) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - JUN 7, 2016
Spicy! Up front. Alcohol heat is there - really sweet dark chocolate malt screams through. Potash: umami all over. Soy sauce. Thick motor oil coats your throat. Didn’t disappoint. Opened on wedding night.
