Botella. Pitch black colour, nice big brown head, creamy, good lacing. Pleasant vey much indeed roasted maltiness in the flavour with alcohol, chocolate, quite sweet actually, alco bit bite witb something spice like. Good filling mouthfeel. Sweet very roasted maltiness with chocolate,. alcohol, bit chili and some dark fruit in the flavour. Rather too sweet for me at the drinking moment so I had some raisins with it making the experience a lot better. Yum indeed for a brew!

neongolden (598) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2015
(On tap @ Mikkeller Bar Viktoriagade, Jan 8 2015) Pours black with a medium tan head that lingers and leaves lace. Aroma of dark raw chocolate and smoky chili pepper spice. Moderate roast with coffee notes. Quite dry nose. Palate quite dry as well with raw unsweetened cacao chocolate, lightly nutty, black coffee with a dash of sugar, toasted coconut, chili smokiness building from the middle on. Some pepper heat and alcohol heat on the finish, softly smoky, dry but fairly light roast. Medium full slick body with moderate carb. On the dry side for an impy stout which is amplified by the chili character. Very nice drinkable stout.

Aroma: vanilla, milk, chilli, chocolate; Appearance: dark brown, minimal brown foamy head, intense lacing; Taste: intense sweetness, medium sourness, medium bitterness; Palate: long finish, thick texture, medium body, soft carbonation After a few sips the chilli peppers kick in and grab a hold on the drinker. It could be more roasted and show a thicker body. Still, it’s another exceptional brew of To Ol.

Sampler at What’s Brewing 2014, Stavanger. Clear deep mahogany body with no head. Liquorice, raisin and booze on the nose. Sweet, fruity flavors, alco warm in the mouth and notes of liquorice present. Full bodied and flat.

Huhzubendah (2726) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle shared by ygtbsm94. Thanks Brad. Served alongside the cognac version. Black body with a thin, wispy, beige head. Chocolate and roast aroma with some char notes. Sweet and dry with tons of chocolate, finishing with warming alcohol. Distinctly European in style. Rich chocolate cake. I’m having difficulty picking out any chilis - perhaps they have faded. There is a subtle spice character throughout, however. Still, quite tasty. I give a slight nod to the cognac variant.

yngwie (14338) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle. It pours an almost black body, at least dark, dark brown in color, and with more or less no head. The aroma is on the roasted side, almost burnt, with cocoa, some dark chocolate and a boozy touch. The mouthfeel has booze at first, then the chilies go to work, playing with the tip of my tongue. Roasted malts and cocoa. Full body, oily and with a low level of carbonation. Lasting finish with some chili. Like it, but it’s too one-dimensional. In a way. 141228

jookos (2741) - FINLAND - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle. Light brown head, black otherwise. Soft roasted, slight smokey, milky nose with some green elements. Hit me first as eucalyptus, but now a bit more mellow. Full body, thick but not that oily, luckily. Intensive flavours. Some sweetness, roasted beef, leathery tones. And that green vibe again. Awesome beer. Can’t taste the abv, is dangerously easy to drink.
