daje (2609) - NORWAY - OCT 10, 2013
On tap at Mikkeller & Friends, july 16th 2013. Black. Head is brown and creamy. Aroma of roasty coffee, licorice, light chili, dark berries, vanilla. Thick beer, good viscocity, taste of chocolate, chili, roasted malt. The chili taste is light, though marking its presence all the way, very nice blended into the taste without stealing the show. Light smoked finish, with chili still there, with lots of hops too. Malty coffee aftertaste. A very nice imperial stout.

Plovmand (6560) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2014
Bottle. Pours jet black with a creamy beige head. The aroma is smoked and roasted malt with ashy and light cocoa notes. The flavor is sweet roasted with a great chili kick that is great balanced. Not too vague not too burning and overpowered. Chocolate and light cream. Thick texture. Awesome! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

slowrunner77 (6031) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 5, 2014
"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."
