3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Black with a large good lasting light brown head. This is really sweet. Sugar, molasses, syrup, all things sugar. Some chilli heat finally kicks in, but the first five seconds or so is just syrup. Warming alcohol, white chocolate, coconut. Medium body, sticky texture, medium carbonation, sticky sweet finish. I used to like this, but damn it is sweet and sticky even though the alcohol and chilli lifts it a bit.

"Well made imperial stout that I had a hard time believing was over 12%. Big rosted malt notes and bitter coffee and some chocolate, but the roast is king. Very smooth at any strength. Light bite from the chillies. If there is a fault, it’s that the peppers are not as pronounced as I hoped, but damn this was still a great beer."

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
375ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a large tan head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. Treacle, milk chocolate, roasty malt warmth and fruity chilli create the aroma. An initial hint of treacle sweetness is soon overcome by chilli heat, which fades to milk chocolate smoothness in the mid-palate. A slight fruity flavour mixes with resurgent chilli in the finish, and there is a lingering blend of alcohol warmth and chilli heat. The chilli has been added to just the right level to complement the beer and make its presence felt without being overpowering, and works very nicely with the sweetness of the base beer. Very enjoyable.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2014 -----Pintaza en el lúpulo el 06-12-2014. 3Er día de pinchado,, tremendamente alcohólica con toques tostados y ligeramente quemados, cacaos y ligeros chiles al final, notandose todo esto ultimo sobretodo al final, cuando coge casi temperatura ambiente. Cuerpo intenso licoroso y muy alcohólico. Bestial!!!!
--- de 37.5 cl en el lúpulo en el momento después del festival de la cerveza de verano de gijon. Después de todo lo mejor con diferencia. Intensos sabores de café y tostados con un cuerpo denso y espeso junto con una buena dosis de alcohol de 12.2 que hacen que se mantengan todos los sabores en durante un buen rato. Bastante buena, para repetir sin duda.
