On tap at the brewpub. Black colour with a tan head. Aroma is chili, malt, hop. Flavour is chili, roasted malt, hop, fruit. Long burning finish. The chili dominated the beer. Nice beer. Beer5000 (6736) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 5, 2013
On tap @ the brewpub. Almost clear amber body with an off-white head. Aroma is medium malty as the Black Bastard but with green pepper. Flavor is like The Black Bastard…… for three seconds, and then the habanero strikes through without any mercy. This beer takes no prisoners and everything is just hot and spicy. OK, you may still detect the black saison somewhere but frankly there is no balance here at all. But what did you expect, this is doomsday and we all better get used to the heat. Sometimes we need this beers just for the fun of it, and I just had to have another. Meilby (11739) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2013

On tap at the brewpub. It pours a dark brown body, looking unclear, and topped by a dense, beige head lasting for a good time. The aroma has a nice blend of chocolate and coffee, with a light piney hoppyness and after a while, some chili hints. In the flavor, the chili is far more pushing, coming very strong after a second or two, then slowly calming down, but never disappearing. The warmth stays in the mouth and throat, lasting much longer than the really pleasant and quite lasting coffee and chocolate. There’s some bitterness too, in appropriate levels, but the saison yeast is very well hidden. As well as being warming on the palate, it’s also quite soft and silky, and full-bodied. As mentioned, the finish lasts for a long time, especially the chili burn. Although based on a dark saison, it certainly feels like a chili stout or chili porter. A beer I really loved, and I must say it’s a pity it’s a one-off. 121219
