375ml bottle. Pours jet black, no head. Aroma: dark chocolate, cherry, dried fruits, fruit cake. Taste: moderate to heavy sweet, big rich dark chocolate, vinous, ripe dark fruits, plums, nuts, light coffee, hint of chilli. Thick bodied, almost zero carb, sweet smooth finish. It's aged pretty well, chilli fading and slightly oxidised but it's still a very fine stout. MrTipple (13256) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2018

Malty aroma, roasted, chocolate, milk chocolate, vinous too, dark dried fruits, light spicy, soy sauce. Sweet and light bitter taste like aroma. Light to medium oily body with soft carbonation. kraddel (10779) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - APR 30, 2017
At the Thessaloníki tasting, day 3. Thnx to Eric. Pours black, no real head. Smell is bit boozy. Dark malts, rich roastyness. Very mild aspects of coffee and chocolate, no clear sign of peppers left. Taste is full, thick, rich roastyness, dark chocolate, notes of coffee. No chillies left. Very oily. As usual with the AB, it is rather harsh, and low in carbo. Still not convinced, even after this extremely hyped 04, about the series. allmyvinyl (15164) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 25, 2017
Bottle thanks to cgarvieuk. At last! Many thanks for the chance to try it. Pours black with no real head. Aromas of chocolate, toffee, nuts. Taste is more of the same. Dark chocolate and cocoa. No spice left.
