Big heat with the ABV and the chilies. Juicy pepper in the aroma. Pretty tasty. Rich cocoa tones, not unlike most Scandinavian stouts. The pepper adds some nice depth. Vegetal pepper tones last into the aftertaste. Quite a solid beer.

Bottle at home. Finally locked down the original base beer of this formidable range. I love chilli in imperial stout. Its a flavour sensaysh. This is a Black beer with a Beige head. Much like the others. Aroma is big and bold. Roasted malt and smoky ash. Full bodied caramel and ash flavour with that familiar chilli warmth. I love this beer and I love its brothers and sisters. This one is probably my favourite although the Sherry cask version is a close second.

wiedrzensky (728) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 17, 2015
On tap at Salon Piva, Bratislava. Pours is black, dark with thick persistent tan head, leaves fair lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate, roasted malts, nuts, hints of chilli. Taste is moderate sweet, with just hints of bitterness, nice, moderate chilli mouthfeel. Dry, full body, creamy texture, chilli and some bittery in finish. Awesome beer.

PabloZab (1067) - Wroclaw, POLAND - AUG 28, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2015 Tap (ZUP, Wroclaw). Piwo niemal czarne, nieprzejrzyste z brazowa piana, slaba i szybko redukujaca sie praktycznie do zera. Aromat slodki, czekoladowy z nuta likieru i wisni w czekoladzie oraz nuta palona w tle, coraz wyrazniejsza w miare uplywu czasu. Calosc dosc intensywna i bardzo przyjemna dla zmyslu powonienia. Czekoladowe w smaku, przesycone delikatna nuta szlachetnego alkoholu, likieru z wyrazna ale nieprzeszkadzajaca, palona goryczka. Alkohol przyjemnie rozgrzewa a chili delikatnie drapie w gardle ale bez zadnej agresji, jedynie zaznaczona obecnosc ostrych papryczkek. Oleista konsystencja sprawia ze piwo dokladnie oblepia podniebienie i pozostawia dluuugi slodki posmak z malutkim ostrym kwaskiem na finiszu. Tresciwe i pijalne jak na swoja moc, przyjemne w odbiorze.

Tap. Pours sirupy thick pitch black with tan small and creamy dense head. Aroma has fudge, fruity chili, malty, sugary, vanilla, dark malts, dark fruits, dates and figs, coffee and rich chocolate. Taste is really sweet, candied red apples, fruity chili, dark malts, prunes, figs, malty roast, fruity coffee. Puddersukker and caramel. Slight acidic fruity chili. Sticky sugary body, warming. And then comes the chili burn. Very well balanced. One of my faves!

Bottle - pours pitch with a tan head. This one reads bitter, but Im not getting much of the chilies. Old bottle? Im not feeling this one for some reason.

Bottle from best way. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Not a lot of chili on the nose or tongue but theres lots of chocolate malt and hop notes on the tongue. Solid but its not knocking my socks off.
