Intense! This is something that I think a lot of people wouldn’t like, especially people that don’t like oddball single malt scotches. Not that this is especially scotch-like, just similar in intensity.The peppers are kind of subdued - I wouldn’t mind if they were more prominent, but they’re very nice where they are. Charcoal, but a really nice charcoal, as weird as that sounds, and all kinds of herbally stuff I can’t put my finger on.
I love smoked beers but never ever tasted beers with chili. Now I know it is a perfect comination. After I drank Rook & Vuur I have a new favourite substyle! Combine it with cpicy at your own risk :) Jingis (424) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 21, 2017

Aroma: intense peaty smoke, a bit "salty" and ham-like, backed by slightly sweet roasted malt with some dried fruit. Near-black mahogany pour with small beige head. In taste it is initially sweet and chocolatey, later followed by the smoke, initially mild, but strengthening over time, and remaining long in the aftertaste. I thought the smoke was almost pungently spicy and then read about the chili addition and realized it was what caused it - proves that the recipe is quite well thought out. Medium body, low carbonation, gets spicier and spicier as it goes down. Very nice, but definitely only for smoked beer fans. herinmary (110) - RUSSIA - NOV 6, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2017 Аромат выраженный копчёный. Во вкусе дым, немного ванили, горечи почти нет, карбонизация умеренная, послевкусие копчёное с острым перцем.

Bottle at Majstor za pivo, Belgrade. Shared with lovely Anja. Black with a brownish tint, small tan head. Extremely rich aroma of soy sauce, peat, smoked meat and salt. Salty and heavily smoked, caramel and spices. Hot! Creamy texture, moderate to full body, moderate carbonation, lasting roasty finish with a touch of spices. Very good, but a bit overenthusiastic. dzudohonor (339) - POLAND - OCT 13, 2017
Piękny aromat torfowy, czekolada, z czasem wychodzą delikatne papryczki. Smak: tu już dużo mniej torfu, więcej słodów, karmelu no i już dobrze wyczuwalnej i lekko drapiącej gardło papryczki chili. Dobrze wyważone, może zabrakło mi w smaku akcentów torfowych, ale overall dobre piwko. Rychuku (285) - POLAND - SEP 21, 2017
Dark, almost black beer with lasting, thing, tan head. The smoke in this beer is just wonderful, so turfy that young Scroodge McDuck would roam around Scotland looking for it. From behind it we've got some chocolate and roasted malts. In the taste we have a load of chocolate with some smoked whisky notes. The roasted malts are the thing that stays on the tongue the longest, and it's very pleasant The chilli is well mixed into the beer, i.e. does not burn in the throat, but only in the mouth. Wonderfully balanced beer. The alcohol (8,2%) absent in the taste, but it gives some fruity notes. Smooth, low carbonation. No acidity, that was a drawback in some of the previous ratings. My Lord, this beer is something. Rubin77 (2752) - Brussels / Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 9, 2017
