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!

Pours black with a weak beige head. Aroma is of roasted toast, bread, caramel, coffee, and some chili pepper. First of all I’d declare that I’m not one for chili stouts, I don’t think they improve the beer whatsoever, just takes over flavour, overall this felt like a really solid beer, but the chili weakens the rest of the taste for me. Taste was quite roasty, some chocolate, some bread, aftertaste of soy sauce and a kind of lingering burn that for me was just not comfortable, made it feel very dry.

sort of a take on the pepper oriented stout, this one is somewhat smoky with just the faintest heat. pretty neat.

On tap @ Les Fleurs du Malt (Lyon). Dark brown with a small beige head and little to no lacing. Aroma is of roasted malt, cocoa, chili peppers and vanilla. Chili peppers are a little more present in taste, but it’s not overwhelming at all. There’s also cocoa, roasted malt, vanilla, light acidic notes (not off) and a bit of chili heat in the finish. Full bodied. Moderate carbonation. Slightly hot finish. Good balance. Complex and tasty. I’m not fond of these chili beers, but when it’s well executed, it’s not bad at all.

Tap at Mikkeller BKK beginning of February. Big spicey chillied nose with hints of roast and coffee buried underneath. Flavor is dark roasty malts up front leading into smoke, toffee, and dark chocolate. Finish blends the spice notch up another kick and finishes well mixing all the flavors together for a long linger. Good stuff!
