Awesome green glass wide mouth 37.5cl bottle (my favorite bottle type I think) pours with a deep dark body that supports a full thick mocha head of foam. The aroma offers up big and roasty notes like dark roasted malts and over baked chocolate brownie as well as a dash of peaty smoke. The taste begins with dark roasted malts and chunks of chocolate and then more chocolate and malt richness toward midway. This all flows into some mild notes of booze and chili pepper heat. Behind these rich smooth notes are faint yeasty spices as well as a sense of minerals. Solid smooth sipper. Wow!

Fullstendig svart med lavt espressofarget skum. Brygget lukter hovedsakelig sjokolade og lakris, men også vanilje, mørk malt og noe kaffe. Utsøkt. Smaken er flust av sjokolade og lakris, med noe sødme. Også noe pepper/chilli i smaken. Alkoholen er såvidt merkbar, på en behagelig måte. Godt balansert, med tanke på over 12%. Til slutt en nydelig bitter følelse på tunga og i ettersmaken. Alkoholen varmer lunt nedover halsen. Tykk konsistens, et mektig og særdeles godt brygg.

Aroma of coffee & sweet chocolate. Black with brown head. Taste of sweet liquorice with an elegantly balanced taste of chilli in the finish. Full bodied, smooth texture & average carbonation.

Pours black with a weak beige head. Aroma is of roasted toast, bread, caramel, coffee, and some chili pepper. First of all I’d declare that I’m not one for chili stouts, I don’t think they improve the beer whatsoever, just takes over flavour, overall this felt like a really solid beer, but the chili weakens the rest of the taste for me. Taste was quite roasty, some chocolate, some bread, aftertaste of soy sauce and a kind of lingering burn that for me was just not comfortable, made it feel very dry.

Pours black with low tan head. Aroma of vanilla, cocoa, light chili. Taste is nicely balanced vanilla, chocolate, light coffee, muscovado, with balanced chili finish. Body is rich and creamy with soft carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sort of a take on the pepper oriented stout, this one is somewhat smoky with just the faintest heat. pretty neat.

On tap @ Les Fleurs du Malt (Lyon). Dark brown with a small beige head and little to no lacing. Aroma is of roasted malt, cocoa, chili peppers and vanilla. Chili peppers are a little more present in taste, but it’s not overwhelming at all. There’s also cocoa, roasted malt, vanilla, light acidic notes (not off) and a bit of chili heat in the finish. Full bodied. Moderate carbonation. Slightly hot finish. Good balance. Complex and tasty. I’m not fond of these chili beers, but when it’s well executed, it’s not bad at all.
