Bottle at brewery. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, cacao, coffee, cinnamon, chili and Vanilla. Heavy sweet and moderate bitter with lingering roasted spicy notes. Full and creamy. A great one... czlowiekmotyka (659) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 11, 2018
It is superbly cherry driven in its fruitiness (uber fruity - 2017). Some cocoa, nice on the finish and balance. I am sad that cinnamon is hidden. Good one. In the past it must have been a real treat. zoucrew102 (2421) - - MAR 29, 2018
750ml bottle, 2018 vintage. Rich chocolate malt aroma with notes of roasted malt, molasses, cinnamon, vanilla and chili peppers. Pours inky black with a dark, large mocha head that has great retention and good lacing. Starts with rich molasses, chocolate malt and vanilla flavors as well as full body and slick, viscous mouthfeel. Finishes smooth with cinnamon and roasted malt flavors as well as a bit of chili pepper heat that counters the malt nicely. Worth the hype, really good stuff.

W aromacie praliny, czekolada mleczna, delikatny cynamon. W smaku półsłodkie. Na finiszu mocno czekoladowe z lekką palonością. Alkohol szlachetny, sporo ciała, intensywne, degustacyjne, super piwo. astronzz (153) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAR 24, 2018
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2018 Barwa nieprsejrzyscie czarna z brunatna pianka. W aromacie wedzone papryczki wegierskie, pralinki i takie przyjemne przyprawy w stylu kurkuma. W smaku bardzo papryczkowe, pralinkowe, calkiem palone. Mega klasa, duzo ciala i mega szlachetny alkohol. Klasa sama w sobie.

Pours dark brown/black with light brown lacing. Nose is chocolate. Taste is chocolate, bread with a dry finish. Classic stout is very nice. cobaink2 (923) - seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 17, 2018
750 ml bottle acquired in trade. Once opened some chilis and green pepper open up your nose. A Deep chocolate, cherry and a bit of burnt wood flavor even though this is not barrel aged. Pretty interesting beer. Love it. MaltoseChalice13 (40) - Somerset, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 7, 2018
Pours deep dark used motor oil with thin brown head. It has dark chocolate legs nearly staining the glass as I swirl the brew around. Aroma is of rich dark chocolate, vanilla, molasses, vegetable smelling hot spices and more chocolate. The taste is full of yummy rich dark chocolate. Love this beer. jinroh (2727) - ESTONIA - FEB 17, 2018
CBS vertical tasting @ Tim's. Thank you for sharing Jon! Dark brown pour some brown foam on top. Aroma has cocoa and chocolate, chocolate pudding, somewhat milky, cacao nibs. Tastes dry chocolaty, roast, hops and some chilli heat coming out in the finish. Very rich, kind of like a hoppy chocolate cake, I like that it's not overly sweet and that chilli heat is in the finish. Pretty darn good. snowcrash000 (214) - Cologne, GERMANY - JAN 22, 2018
Pours a thick, oily pitch black coloration with a small, creamy head. Smell is somewwhat subdued, pretty underwheming compared to the taste. Cinnamon is most noticeable, with a sort of odd earthy, musty aroma being pretty dominant as well. Perhaps a hint of coconut there. Taste is lots of chocolate and vanilla noticeable at first, with a decent bit of cinnamon and chili coming through as well. The chili really grows as you drink and the beer warms. Quite noticeable in the aftertaste in a really pleasant way. Hardly any boozyness there at all. Mouthfeel really is fantastic, very thick, sticky, almost oily and very smooth. This is really nice for a non-BA stout, but I have to say that I would still prefer SN Narwhal or Kernel's Imperial Brown Stout. I do like chili, but all in all this does not seem perfectly balanced and frankly overrated.
