c0fein (198) - Helsinki, - JAN 3, 2014
375ml bottle from Drink Shop, Tallinn. Strong fine aroma. Beautiful dark appearance with dark brown foam. Feels little bit burning at taste, good balanced IS. Dont know is it alcohol or chilis what feels at palate. Propably both.

SlackerMads (1606) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2014
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.

TheEpeeist (3346) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2014
12.7 oz bottle. Dark brown with a puffy tan head. Nose is dusty chocolate, cola, prune and molasses. The chili sneaks up to singe the nostrils. Spicy hot, medium to full body with a sharp tang. Taste is French roast, prune, dark chocolate and bitter grass. Earthy hints of chili pepper with restrained heat.

"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."

ComradeK (1022) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - SEP 1, 2014
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.

angel77 (947) - oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 23, 2014
Botella 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.

rodenbach99 (3158) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 21, 2014
37.5 cl. 12.2%. Meilleur avant le 10/02/24. Une belle robe brune avec une mousse épaisse brune. Un nez de chocolat et de chili. Une bouche soyeuse, chocolat, piquante, agréable, les chilis sont bien présents mais pas piquant. J’aime.

SlovakSniper (3161) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 17, 2014
37.5 cl. 12.2%. Meilleur avant le 10/02/24. Robe qui ne laisse rentrer aucune lumière. Col brun qui s’ impose. Dans sa fuite, il laisse une dentelle éparpillée. Arômes poivrés peu intenses. Malts noirs travaillants et alcool camouflé. Saveurs de chocolat au lait, de caramel, de vanille et de poivrons séchés. Il y a certes un équilibre entre la douceur et le pimenté. Un liquide qui laisse, en bouche, une sensation de lait frappé. Un arrière-goût de piments fumés et de sucre brun. Intéressante expérience. Plus ou moins facile à boire, ce stout impérial est fait pour le partage, pour les gens qui s’ intéressent à l’article de A. Moór, « The effect of light intensity on capsicum pollen quality — A megvilágítás erősségének hatása a paprikapollen minőségére » (Zöldségtermesztési Kutató Intézet Bulletinje, vol. 23,‎ 1990, p. 95-98) ou pour les gens nés dans les années 90 qui mangent bio mais qui fument des Gitanes.

375 ml bottle, labeled as Liquid Confidential. Served in a Great Lakes Brewing chalice, the beer pours dark brown black with a couple inch frothy tan head that sticked around a long time. There’s also a good amount of lacing. The brew smells like roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate, coffee and chili peppers. It tastes like roasted malt, smoke, bittersweet and milk chocolate, chili peppers, molasses and some coffee. The chili pepper in this beer isn’t strong at all. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it’s slick and creamy with moderate carbonation. Pretty easy to drink for a beer that’s 12.3% ABV. Overall, I liked this brew. It’s nice and tasty, although I wish there was more of a chili pepper kick to it. $12.99 a bottle.
