It poured a pitch black color with a small off-white head. The aroma was malt, coffee and green peppers. The flavor followed the nose. This was a really good beer. VsXsV (4528) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 5, 2012
Bottle. Opaque, black liquid with mahogany/red hue and really tan/brown head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, chili (ancho), fresh coffee, licorice, wood and some ash and caramel. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with notes of chocolate/cocoa, fresh coffee, deep chili flavours and vanilla. Absolutely delicious. Full bodied with nice carbonation and really creamy, sticky mouthfeel. Super balanced and well made. Lots of chocolate/cocoa, vanilla and some deep chili. beergodd1 (400) - Conneaut, Ohio, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Pours pitch black with a Frothy dark Brown head. The nose is dark fruits, roasted malt, cocoa, molasses and coffee. The taste is molasses, burnt malt, dark chocolate, coffee and a nice bitter hoppy finish. This beer has several different layers of complexity as it warms. Including The pepper warmth. Medium creamy mouth feel. Very good – worthy of the hype. andrejes (32) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 29, 2012

Re-rate on November 16, 2012 bottle shared by Brandon. This had way more spice than I remember. Moved down taste, palate and overall by one each.

Bottle shared by CLevar - thanks Caleb! Super thick, tan head, deep dark black. Smell is a touch sweet, toffee, chocolate. Coats your mouth in rich, chocolate goodness! Fantastic.

Pours an opaque sable with a thick, fine-bubbled cinnamony tan head. Strong, smoky, chocolaty aroma has hints of cinnamon and vanilla. Mouth-filling roast coffee flavor has tones of caramel and chocolate plus hints of hot pepper and licorice. Firm, almost syrupy, smooth texture is quite fizzy. _angst_ (4810) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 24, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2012 750 ml bottle courtesy of and shared with Marsiblursi. Many thanks! 2010 vintage. Pours oily black with a small dark chocolate brown head that quickly dissipates while leaving some trace on the glass. Smell is sweet with roasted malts, wood, tobacco, vanilla, milk chocolate, prunes, cinnamon, brown sugar, alcohol, soy and hints of smoke, flower nectar and red chili. Taste is sweet, bitter and salty with heavily roasted malts, coffee, vanilla, very ripe grapes, cinnamon, chocolate, dark bread, golden syrup and hints of liquorice fudge, soy, smoke and chili powder. Mouthfeel is oily, very silky, tiny sticky sweet and full bodied. Finish is tiny sweet, bitter and tiny tart with heavily roasted malts, coffee, bitter chocolate, wood, cinnamon and smoke. Quite nice and with incredibly clear notes of the stuff they’ve put in it.llcooldave (1221) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Re-rate @ tkrjukoffs CCB Day July 7 2012. Intense dark chocolate and cinnamon smell. Intense dark chocolate taste. Amazing! Much better than the last vintage I tried.
Pour a dark, thick black like used motor oil. It has a slight orange tinge to the head (what little there is). Strong aroma of dark cocoa, ancho, and espresso. It kinda has a consistency of chocolate liqueur. Great flavors: more espresso and dark cocoa followed by more chocolate liquer and a faint spicy aftertaste on the palate. Overall, I’m quite impressed! Thanks to ericandersnavy for the hookup! tderoeck (10002) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAR 23, 2012
