eXORRO (279) - POLAND - JUL 21, 2017
Not intensive aroma of chocolate, some fruits like apple with mineral afternose. Taste of chocolate with extremely spicy finish. The most spicy beer ever drunk. Watery. Medium carbonation. Unbalanced.

mariuspoenari (2954) - 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.

Sampled from bottle at THT March at Kwartje. Black with thin cream head. Sweet deep roasted chocolate malts, apple syrup, red chillies. Medium sweet and quite sharp spicy. Medium body, soft carbonation. Quite a nice one.

2.7
Bov (13221) - 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 don’t fit together

Garrold (5515) - 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. There’s a little vegetal thing going on, presumably the chilli. After a swirl, there’s treacle, and caramel. Smells good. Taste is caramel sweet, then any other flavours get blown away by the chilli heat. And that’s it really. Plenty of light burn. Not a subtle beer, but I did like it. Smells lovely. Fairly intense sipping beer. Definitely tasty.

allmyvinyl (10932) - 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 doesn’t linger. Good.
