2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap @ Beer temple. Small 10 cl sample. The aroma has roast, vanilla, chocolate. Black coloured beer with a beige head. The taste is initially sweet with chocolate and vanilla. With every sip this beer gets more undrinkable due to the aggressive pepper. We used to laugh at pepper beers like the Cave Creek Chili. Now craft brewers start to put them in their decent brews. Let’s put an end to this madness. Pepper is a dangerous ingredient, it might add a nice subtle touch, but when used in too large quantities it completely ruins the beer. This one for example.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Bishops Arms Folkunga, 19/11-13.
Black oily with a thick creamy brown head, nice lacings.
Roasted and slight peaty malty aroma with espresso, dark chocolate, licorice, molasses, burnt wood and chili. Really nice.
Taste is sweet and burnt malty with strong coffee, dark chocolate, wood, licorice and a growing heat of chili and some dark fruity notes.
Big oily sticky mouthfeel with soft carbonation and a burning/warming sensation from the chipotle in the mouth and throat. Not subtle but still very good. Reminds me of Dieu du Ciels imp. But with a chili burn.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
brassée avec des piments habanero et de la cannelle, couleur très noire, peu de mousse, nez sur le café, la cendre, la vanille, les épices (cannelle surtout), le piment ne se sent pas trop pour le moment. Bouche assez douce en attaque, sur le café, la vanille, le bois, puis petit à petit le piment arrive. Texture assez épaisse, carbonatation moyenne. Finale interminable sur le piment, brûlante. Très bien faite, mais pour les amateurs de piment.

Draft @ BeerTemple. Pours a pitch black beer with a small beige head on top. Aroma is slight peppered, chocolate, roast and chocolate. Flavour is mildly pepper, bit there is some burning sensation in there. Also a lot of chocolate and coffee in there. Very nice flavors, greatly balanced and the pepper is not overwhelming. Very nice.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2013 Black with a small tan head. Aroma of caramel, coffee, green pepper and tropical fruits. Sweetish fruity flavour with lots of chocolate, vanilla, coffee, cinnamon and pepper, and a very hot chili finish. There may be a touch of christmas cookies, but it works anyway

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
65 cl bottle @ home, bottled 03.07.2013. Thanks tiong!
Aroma is sweet with vanilla and cocoa. Also some distant peppery chili notes that I would not have observed without knowing. Flavour has licorice, cocoa, vanilla and hints of ash. Nice chili notes in the finish. Very smooth and somewhat sticky palate. Quite like eating a chocolate cake with chili added. Slow drinking, very rich and excellent stuff.
