mcberko (5941) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 30, 2014
375mL bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma is really rich, showing lots of liqueur scents, rich caramel and a little chocolate. Flavour is even better integrated than the wine barrel version, with oak, cognac liqueur and caramel. The chili or chocolate aren’t as pronounced in this version, but it is probably more cohesive. Very elegant stuff - a slow sipper.

Bottle. BB 10/10/23. Pours a very dark brown with a tan head. Sticky dark fruit aroma with soy. Full body, medium carbonation. lots of soy sauce/teriyaki, salt, meat, treacle, coffee... Its decent, solid.

När det gäller öl med chili så är jag lite tveksam, i några fall så har det varit ett positivt tillägg men i många fler en smärre katastrof. Smaken bar dock mest toner av choklad och kaffe men chilin fanns där men den var rätt juste balanserad gentemot resten av smaken.

Procent (45) - POLAND - JUN 21, 2014
W aromacie dominuje paloność, likier i kawa oraz nieco śliwek i wiśni. Piwo bardzo ciemno brązowe, nieprzejrzyste. Piana niewielka, brązowa, ale drobnopęcherzykowa i ładnie oblepia szkło. W smaku więcej kawy, mniej likieru, delikatna owocowa kwaskowość. Goryczka dobrze kontruje słodycz. Wyczuwalny także alkohol. Dobre, ale nie wybitne, spodziewałem się większej ilości nut od leżakowania. Warka do 10.10.2023

Jaksmart (394) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle. Pitch black with a small brown head. Aroma is way more boozy than the original: packed with oaky vanilla and cognac warmth, figs, lots of dark fruits, cocoa and some buttery spices in the back. Taste is very nice with lots of oaky sweetness, cognac, dark fruits, mild vanilla, less spices than the original. Hugely fat and sticky with a long duration.

Klimaet (72) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2014
Bottled shared with birthday-boy Lukasmh, Vestergaard and some other friends. Thanks Lukas! Pours black with a thin dark brown shortlasting foam. Aromas of liqorice, cognac, vanilla, sweet dark fruits, oak and slight coffee. First thing that hits you is the boozy taste compared to the standard version. Medium sweetness, oak, salmiak liqorice and cognac. Nice strong chili finish.

VsXsV (2144) - Linköping, SWEDEN - MAY 27, 2014
Bottle. Opaque black liquid with small tan head. Aroma of licorice, chocolate, chilli, wood, raw sugar, booze and ash. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with notes of booze, chocolate, wood and chili. Full bodied with low carbonation. Very nice but booze.

Gerbeer (1666) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 24, 2014
375 ml bottle. Pours black with medium tan head. Aromas of toast, nutella, vanilla, milk chocolate and roasted malts. Flavors of all the above. Barrel aging is subtle - adds a little sharpness and a bit more heat. Hard to top the original,but pretty close.

angel77 (772) - oviedo, SPAIN - MAY 22, 2014
Botella de 37.5 cl en el momento, del rincón de la cerveza. 18-05-2014. Color negro intenso con espuma bastante oscura. Aromas maltas tostadas y quemadas con toques de maderas y licores con ciertos terrosos del chile. Cuerpo medio a intenso con 12.2 vol que le dan una buena sensación alcohólica, paso por boca ligero, tipo licor. Sabores maltosos tostados y quemados con maderas empapadas en licor y un ligero final picante agradable y terroso del Chile. Notas dulces, café y cacao. Final con regusto ligero amargo perfectamente combinado con el chile. Muy buena, imperial stout con toques de maderas y cognac ligero con un toque picante y amargo muy agradable. Impresionante, para repetir sin duda.
