A ’WOW’ beer ! Everything is incredible in this beer : the colour, the taste, the nose. The chili lets a very good taste long after finishing it. Bravo To Øl

C’est une imperial stout certes, mais elle est différente de tous les autres exemplaires de ce style, le piment lui conférant un caractère tout à fait particulier. C’est une bière extrème, mais qui pourra plaire aux gens peu habitués à ces bières extrêmes, en effet le coté stout intense n’est pas trop marqué, tandis que le piment agit comme un exhausteur mais ne pique pas exagérément. La couleur est noire, moins total que dans d’autres IS, la liqueur épaisse mais la encore pas si épaisse, pas huileuse, plutôt crémeuse. L’attaque est d’abord sur une IS douce, avec des arômes classiques de chocolat noir, caramel, peu de brulé, c’est d’une belle douceur, puis rapidement le piment émerge, pour venir chauffer le fond de la bouche. IL chauffe mais sans bruler, sans piquer, on sent également les arômes du piment, et pas seulement le piquant. Jamais ce piment ne masque la bière et d’autres arômes qui se développent comme de la mélasse, du café, de la sauce soja, des fruits... Très bel ensemble, une superbe bière, qui gagnerait probablement à être vieillie longtemps.

Some pedigree this. Smoky, robust, spicy and with a long classy spicy heat. Subtly potent with class and good concentration. Unique and delicious.

mariuspoenari (1214) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 24, 2016
37cl bottle. Pitch black with a medium height, fine-grained tan head with excellent retention. Smells like cocoa, milk coffee, chocolate, roasted malts and burnt caramel. Sweet up front, with notes of milk chocolate, cappuccino, cocoa, followed by cherries and a hot chili feeling. The aftertaste is lingering hot.

sunevdj (3891) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - APR 23, 2016
On tap at CBC 2013. Pours black with a light brown head. Very sweet with a mellow bitterness. Malty aromas of toasted malts with hints of chocolate and toffee. Pretty strong on the alcohol aromas. Medium to full bodied. Soft carbonation. Dry finish.

Michcio (424) - Gdansk, POLAND - APR 21, 2016
Barwa niemalże czarna, ze sporą, beżową pianą, która dobrze się trzyma i osadza w snifterze. W aromacie istna nawałnica ciemnych jak noc aromatów - przede wszystkim czekolada, kawa, sporo paloności, nieco ciemnych owoców, marzepanu, nutka też rumu. W smaku spora słodycz, wręcz uderzenie czekolady, zarówno tej słodkiej, jak i deserowej, nutki kawowe, spora dawka paloności i pralin oraz śliwki, wszystko zwieńczone średniowysoką goryczką, po trochę chmielową i paloną, czuć też trochę papryczek, ale bez przesady, nie pieką w gardle jakoś szczególnie. Treściwość kolosalna, bardzo pełne, wysycenie niskie, moc nieźle ukryta, a pije się bardzo dobrze, jak czekoladę w płynie. Potęga wśród piw.

SkillsFactory (503) - ITALY - APR 19, 2016
Marrone molto scura con riflessi caramello, schiuma beige di media persistenza. Aroma di orzo, liquirizia, vaniglia, caffè, note di frutti rossi e note legnose che ricordano la liquirizia grezza. Al palato sempre orzo, vaniglia e liquirizia, caffè montato con lo zucchero, note legnose, finale di vaniglia, caffellatte, orzo e vaniglia con una nota di peperoncino che rende piccante la bevuta ed una nota legnosa. Corpo pieno, mediamente carbonata.

Completely black beer with beige head. The aroma is dark dark dark with hints of fruits and ethanol. The taste is heavy with roasted malt and liquorice. Overall a good beer, but expensive! :-(

Zlotta (1490) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - APR 2, 2016
0.375 l bottle from ’drankgigant.nl’ at 12.2% abv. Pitch black with a medium large, creamy, slowly diminishing, light brown head. Sweetish, roasty, slightly fruity and rather boozy aroma of dark chocolate, molasses, some coffee, licorice, red berries and booze. Sweet, roasty-malty taste of dark chocolate, molasses, tar, licorice, some coffee and red berries, followed by a long, roasty-bitter, slightly peppery and a little boozy finish. Medium to full body, thick and oily mouthfeel, very soft carbonation. The peppers are fortunately not too strong, but sufficient to balance the otherwise overwhelming sweetness. Quite complex, but not sophisticated enough. Still good of course.

mgajdaczewa (1522) - Katowice, POLAND - APR 1, 2016
W aromacie czekolada deserowa, pralina, lżejsza kawa, zwiastuje kawał potężnego RISa. W smaku jest podobnie, odpowiednio gęste, czekoladowo - pralinowe piwo z... finiszem zdominowanym przez chilli, piecze mocno, czekolada nie daje odporu, mocno wysusza podniebienie. Byłoby dużo wyżej gdyby papryczkowe pieczenie bardziej ukryć, wkomponować w całość.
