Draught at Mikkeller&Friends. Pitch black beer with a nice brownish head. Roasted chocolate aroma, chilli, spicy, caramel, licorice, tar, um notes, raisins, creamy notes. Chilli flavor, chocolate, cocoa powder, creamy, tar, spicy notes, peat, some licorice. Full bodied. Chilli finish with caramel, licorice, dark chocolate and cocoa. Good beer bit probably it had been even better without the chilli.

KyotoLefty (7112) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 29, 2013
Tap at Friends. Black, lace, nice brown legs. Very fruity nose, orange, grapes, even a bitnofnpineapple, plus chocolate. Doesn’t smell like an IS. Fruity, peppery flavor. Chili, grape, cherry, coffee, pepper, chocolate. Very complex and fruity, with great peppey stuff that doesn’t go overboard. A bit like mole. Light, slitly thin body. Drank with two better IS, but still damn good.

allmyvinyl (5372) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 30, 2013
375ml bottle shared at home. Pours jet black with thin tan head. Fruity nose, dark fruits, dark chocolate, coffee. I couldn’t pick up much smoke, but than I had just finished a cigar. Others round the table could get smoke. Heat comes through softly towards the end. Sweet and roasty goodness to finish. Good.

AshtonMcCobb (3497) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 30, 2013
A bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. I enjoyed this a lot, probably beer of the evening. Loads of fruit intermingled with chocolate and just a hint of smoke. Those 3 elements were in balance too.

Philym (1003) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2013
Appearance: Dark brown with a cm thick tan head. Aroma: Toast/bread, chilli, grassy, caramel/toffee and a note of chocolate. Taste: Medium sweetness, low/medium bitterness and sourness. Palate: Thin light texture and body, prickly carbonation, and lingering finish. There is an initial sweetness followed by bitterness and sourness, and then a slight chilli kick. The flavours are a blend of malty tobacco, chocolate, toast and vanilla. Comments: Tasty and left a glass lace.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Oily, black, milk chocolate head. Liquorice, tar, booze, the chilies add warmth in a discreet way. Nice.

tiong (4331) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2014
375ml bottle, vertical with Cognac and Sherry versions

Pours pitch black with a smooth brown head. Aroma of roasty malts, cocoa, dark chocolate, pepper, spices, hints of smoke and ash. Taste is roasty, sweetish and spicy with some dark chocolate, pepper, chili and ash. Finish is roasty, spicy and sweetish with notes of dark chocolate, pepper and slowly warming chili notes. Feels quite stingy and spicy compared to the barrel aged versions.
