Icedwarf (1759) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - OCT 8, 2017
Zwart bier zonder schuim. Smaak is bitter met veel rook en erg pittig. Ondanks ik pittig eten erg goed kan waarderen vind ik dit iets te heftig voor een bier. Anders was mijn waardering zeker hoger uit gekomen. Desondanks erg goed en heel apart. Chili blijft heel lang hangen.

rumore (703) - Rimini, ITALY - AUG 16, 2017
Bottle from Grand Cru Santarcangelo. Pours almost black, with moderate brown foam. Aroma is roasted, chocolate, very spicy. Body is average, average carbonation too, stringency from the chipotle peppers. Taste is moderate sweet, but evening else is taken over by the chili pepper. Finish is very long and spicy.

Gangstergafje (1228) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2017
18-06-2017; bottle; at home (bought at Plus Peter de Jong, Stadhoudersplein, Rotterdam). The looks of the beer are exactly that of a perfect porter. I love every cubic inch of it. The beer has an amazing colour. It is pitch black, with in strong light a nice dark brown glow. The glow is very slightly, because it is so dark. I have no clue about the clarity. On top of the beer there is a nice layer of soft brownish foam. The bulk of the foam collapses rather quickly, leaving a thin drape. Not bad, and very promising for the smell and flavour. The smell is divine. It is exactly the type of beer that I love most and that most who are not used to this kind of beers hate. It is strong, robust and powerful. Really a beer to enjoy. I smell some very, very dark aromas. There are strong malt aroma’s, touches of oakwood, coffee, strong chocolate, smoke. It is lovely. The chocolate and coffee give both sweets and bitters, whilst the smoke gives some savoury touches to the smell. Amazing, and just what I needed. To bad there isn’t a single Dutch brewery that can make dark smoked beers like this (I haven’t found one yet), so all the beers are expensive import beers. Worth every cent though. The taste of the beer is also beyond perfect. This is the kind of beer that is served in heaven. The mouth is filled with full and rich malt flavours. There is bittersweet chocolate, bitter and flavourful coffee, slightly sour oakwood, which is rich in flavour, lovely savoury smoke and a nice spicy touch of chili, at least, at fist it is just a touch. But after split seconds, when the flavours sink away a massive burning spicy kick comes in. I’m glad I’ve trained myself with eating sambal, otherwise this would have been to peppery. I love the spiciness though, but people with a weak heat resistance beware. It is more than good. All flavours are strong, clearly present, yet blend together in a lovely symphony that exits each and every tastebud. Especially the thermo-receptors fire their action-potentials like never before. I wish I could drink this every day. It’s good. The palate of the beer is also lovely. The beer is smooth, full bodied with low carbonation. The spicy sensation is amazing. I love it. The finish is nice. Filled with strong malts, giving coffee and chocolate, but almost overwhelmed with the spicy pepper. Really my cup of tea.

Alusmamuts (2097) - LATVIA - JUN 20, 2017
Dark brown with small beige head. Slight coffee and vanilla aroma. Medium bitterness with some sweet-sourness and also some umami. Dried fruit and coffee notes. Strong spiciness later, which lasts in the aftertaste.

Black with thin head. Aroma has a hint of smokiness. Smooth and quite rich texture. The chilli heat grows and grows and lingers in the finish.

Countbeer (6591) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2017
Bottle: Served in a taster: Brown beer. Light brown head. Nose and flavour are quite basic with roasted tones but well executed. The sombrero of peppers are a nice extra. I expected worse but it was still a soft gentle burn. Don’t think this was bad but expected a little more spicy pepper notes... Low carbo, creamy spicy mouthfeel and medium bodied.

MrHangover (4693) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2017
Bottle. Pours a pitch black beer without any head on top. Just a very little head during pouring, and nothing else. Aroma has a faint peppery nose, lots of charcoal and chocolate. Some aroma of rubber as well. Flavor is mildly bittersweet and roasty, gives a nice peppery burn which isn’t all that overpowering but just enough to deliver a nice oomph to the beer. Softly carbonated, long bittersweet roasty finish and the pepper burn stays on for a smooth aftertaste. Nice one.

wheresthepath (2374) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2017
Keg at Red Squirrel High Wycombe. Black with a thin beige head and a moderate fizz. Up front there’s chocolate and light chilli and figs and a meaty savoury smokiness and a light oaky note- at first it seems a delightfully complex and unusual beer. However the chilli grows on further tasting- not to an unbearable or unpleasant level, but definitely to a level where some of the other flavours are rather masked. As it is it’s a great beer that put a smile on my face, but I felt that it could be made even better by toning down the chilli just a tiny bit to allow the underlying complexity to show through right to the end.

Nice, full bodied, warming and spicy. Only complaint is the slightly artificial tang of the smoke - bit odd.

Christos (5883) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2017
(Fierce Beer Dirty Sanchez) Bottle 330ml at home, served into a snifter, ABV 6.5% Black coloured body, half a finger of thick, brown head on top, good retention. Aroma of light roasted malts, chocolate, spicy peppers. Taste begins with chocolate, cocoa, light roasted malts, then lots of spicy peppers, could be worse actually but still plenty of it. Medium body, nicely carbonated. Pretty good.
