UPDATED: MAR 16, 2019 Bottle shared at Alex's birthday. Pours a pitch black with a brown head that lingers, then dissipates. Beautiful nose with cacao nib and at the forefront. Medium bodied with cacao nib and vanilla mild cinnamon and nice heat from the chili peppers. Lots going on here and everything works well together without any cloying sweetness. Coffee and lingering cinnamon and chili on the finish with more cacao nib throughout. Alpha10 (1115) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 4, 2019

Aroma is rich chocolate, treacle, vanilla, roasted malts, cinnamon, earthy and vegetal notes. Taste is cocoa, chilies, vanilla, cinnamon, roasted malt and earthy notes. Almost like a spiced hot chocolate with chilies. Mouthfeel is medium to full and oily with a sweet, toasty, warming finish. Exceptionally smooth.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2019 1st Feb 2019; 7th International Pre-Brugge Beer Festival Beer Swap, De Bierboom. Big sample from a large bottle. Tanned foam for a head, black bodied. Nice warm aroma with coffee and chilli to the fore. Taste is also leaning towards a chilli/coffee flavour with some chocolate and vanilla too. Liked the subtle chilli notes, blended nicely with the richness of the coffee and chocolate taste.
