mariuspoenari (2555) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 11, 2017
Bottle shared at the March THT at Kwartje. Dark brown pour with a tan head. Notes of burnt caramel, hot peppers, dried fruit and chocolate. Really nice first couple of sips, but after that the heat goes up quite a bit.

Bov (12637) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 28, 2016
from Bier-Bienne - black beer with a little beige foam left; aroma of pralines and chili, mineral and vegetables notes; full-bodied, some malt sweetness just before a strong sharpness; long burning chili notes with more chocolate - the components dont fit together

Garrold (5077) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2015
Bottle. Just about black. Halo of dense, beige head. Lovely chocolate cake aroma. Bit of fruit to it. Black Forest Gateau, maybe. Theres a little vegetal thing going on, presumably the chilli. After a swirl, theres treacle, and caramel. Smells good. Taste is caramel sweet, then any other flavours get blown away by the chilli heat. And thats it really. Plenty of light burn. Not a subtle beer, but I did like it. Smells lovely. Fairly intense sipping beer. Definitely tasty.

allmyvinyl (10396) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 13, 2014
330ml bottle from the brewery, shared with Ashton McCobb, who is a big girls blouse with chilli heat, by the way. Pours dark brown, red tinge, nice beige head and lacing. Aromas of chocolate, liquorice, smoke. Tate brings a light heat, lots of dark chocolate. Creamy texture. Burn doesnt linger. Good.

AshtonMcCobb (6476) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 12, 2014
Bottle from the brewery - interesting it was the 2012 version and there still was some. So, theyve aged it for us. Appearance - opaque black with another red chink situation. Good head. Nose - dark chocolate, liquorice, charcoal and smoke generally. Taste - dark chocolate, then hot chilli note. Its ok for allmyvinyl, but the chilli edge is slightly too much for me. Palate - medium bodied with a big creamy texture and a dry and fiery finish. Overall - this is an imperial porter style. Too viscous and lacking roast for a stout.
