COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Black Phoenix melds rich bold coffee with the smokey flavors of chipotle peppers, giving it just a touch of heat. To insure the freshest coffee available, we had our local Orange County friends, Kean Coffee, custom roast a batch for us. Notes of chocolate complement this complex and bold stout. This special release will only be available in limited quantities so enjoy it while it lasts.

Pastor (799) - Skowhegan, Maine, USA - APR 23, 2011
I feel lucky I got this brew in a BIF then the guy decided to stop shipping brew out on his other commitments. So here is to all you guys who got the short in of the stick. I hope the senders brews the sender got all were infected and drain pours. I split this glass with friends and poured into snifters we were greeted with big old tan head that didnt quit, on top of a black bodied brew. The aroma of rich dark coffee dominates this brew with a slight chipotle coming up in the back end. In the taste department you get a lot of coffee at first. I think if this was marketed as a coffee brew alone it would be fantastic but the chili pepper is under done a bit. There was some but I really had to think about it to pick it out. I think it just needs a touch more chili the concept was great but it didnt quite come thru for me. Serving type: bottle

hopdog (12140) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2017
22oz bottle. Poured a dark brown color with an averaged sized off white head. Roast, Chili peppers, some coffee and a tart finish (but thats probably because I needlessly aged this because I have too much beer to drink in a life time).

blipp (8884) - La Mesa, California, USA - FEB 26, 2017
Draft. Pours near black with a beige head. Mild coffee sweetness, roasted malts, some molasses-like sweetness, and coffee sweetness lingering through the finish. Not bad.

JorisPPattyn (9882) - Ursel, BELGIUM - DEC 25, 2016
Huge, thick beige head over virtually black beer. Chocolate, bit of coffee. Voluminous head hampers the perception. Bit earthy, also paint, autumn leaf, toffee. Chocolate, mocha, coffee, spicy. Chilliheat arrives nearly as an afterthought, but keeps hanging after a while. Faintly smoked, capsicum. Seems well-bodied for a relatively light stout. Very well-carbonated. Not bad, drinkable despite the chilli.

rosenbergh (11400) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2016
22 oz bottle at the ISKTR 2016, Hervanta, Finland. Bottled on 03/23/2016. Courtesy of tiong.
Black color with a small tan head. Mild coffee and roasted malt in the aroma. Strong roasted malt and moderate chili in the flavor. Quite pleasant. Lacking the chili a bit.

Jultsu (908) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - AUG 20, 2016
@ISKTR 2016. Nopea kohtalainen vaahto, ruskeanmusta vri. Tyypillinen laimeahko stouttimainen tuoksu, liian kuohuva verihapokas suutuntuma, jlkifiilis lievn poltteinen, kaukana oluesta, lhinn kolamainen.
