McTapps (6482) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - DEC 9, 2015
Bottle from Rudat in Dortmund. The beer has got a deep black colour with a steady head and medium body. Aroma of woods, smoke, chocolate and leaves. Taste of malt, chocolate, coffee, roast, woods and dark bread. Hints of rum and plums. Tasty and nice though I did not really fancy the smokey hints.

Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - DEC 2, 2015
Imperial stout cioccolatosa e liquorosa, golosa come una torta! Note di caffè, liquirizia, peperoncino e malto tostato arricchiscono il bouquet. Corposa e rinfrancante, una bomba!

Lovely stuff. The chilli is subtle, just enough for a but if a tingle on the tongue and it helps cut through the heavy, roasty character. Delicious.

Unde (890) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 27, 2015
Dark brown colour with beige head on top. Aroma has coffee, pepper and syrup sweetness. Taste is also quite sweet, syrup and some chili burn in the end. Espresso coffee and roasted malts are there too. Full body and low carbonation. I would’ve wanted a bit more of that chili punch that was advertised in the bottle. Nice anyway.

(To Øl Liquid Confidence) Bottle 375 ml at home, served into a snifter, ABV 12.2% Pitch black colour on the body, with a tall and very thick, dark brown head on top. Great retemtion. Aroma of chocolate. roasted malts, alcohol, light vanilla. Tastes great, lots of chocolate, fudge and vanilla, the peppers only subtly present and mostly as a faint burn on the back of the throat, alcohol, roasted malts, coal. Thick body, soft carbonation, sticky palate. Fantastic.

Bottle from my brother. Thanks a lot! Pours black with thick brown head. Aroma is hops, nuts, roasty, a hint of chocolate and smoke. Taste is very bitter and sweet with nuts, cocoa, hops, roasty, alcohol and slightly smokey. Long lingering hoppy and roasty aftertaste.

nuplastikk (5785) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 29, 2015
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.
