50cl bottle, enjoyed with 3 more friends (it was a good idea). Pours black with brown head. The aroma is a good warning...there are also chocolate notes, what makes an interesting mix. Quite spicy, I remember me and my friends looking at each other like...wow! Still it is possible to taste the chocolate and even some coffee in there. The palate is obviously warm, but sweet at the same time. Mouthfeel is full, carbonation ok. My first chili beer, not bad at all. And was very funny to drink it xD mateuszk (2769) - Poznań, POLAND - JUN 2, 2015
Bottle. Black, oily, beige head. Aroma of dark chocolate, licorice, hint of chili and coffee. In taste chocolate, some coffee roasted with distinct chili spiciness, medium bitter finish. All well mixed, chili is there but is not overwhelming the beer. Full bodied, oily texture, low carbonated. Well done. ochniczek (326) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2015
50cl bottle. dark brown colour, almost clear. decent but shortlasting beige head, poor lacing. aroma of coffee, dark chocolate and hints of chilli. toasted malts and caramel in taste, slightly bitter. palate is dominated by intense chilli for quite long. oily texture. average carbonation. heman (1198) - Tychy, POLAND - APR 20, 2015
Aromat po otwarciu butelki zwala z nut: słodka mleczna czekolada, z nutami wanilii - czekoladowy deser. Po przelaniu do szkła, niestety zaczyna dominować lukrecja i anyż, zapach ten jest na tyle intensywny, że przypomina cukierki na ból gardła z dzieciństwa.
W smaku jest już przegięcie! O ile po pierwszych dwóch, trzech łykach mogłem stwierdzić, że dominują słody palone i wyraźna popiołowość, z nuta lekko kwaskowatej kawy i kakao, to po kolejnych palenie gardła przez chili pozbawiło mnie jakiegokolwiek czucia smaku. To piwo nie jest na krawędzi... krawędź zniknęła dawno za horyzontem! Ilość papryczek przytłacza i obezwładnia., po każdym łyku zostajemy z piekielnym paleniem w gardle i charakterystycznym rozgrzewaniem w przełyku.

Big taste of liquorice - not a flavour in strong measures that I like... Tastes like medicine

Thick and pitch black beer with a nice roasted head - looks beautifull. The nose is dominated by tons of sweet and salty licorice - very intense. Tastewise the licorice is dominatin as well, nearly a bit too domintaing, but there is also noticable traces of chili, vanilla, coffee, chocolate and roasted malt. The addition of chili is quite subtle subtle and well ballanced and thus gives the beer a nice edge. Good beer - not for the faint hearted. (4)
EDIT: Gets a bit dank in length - the licorice is simply to overpowering which makes the addition of both chili, vanilla,coffee and chocolate a bit redundant. (3,6) lello4ever (1191) - ITALY - APR 10, 2015
Del solidissimo birrificio danese Hornbeer, questa splendida imperial stout è difficile da dimenticare. Scura scurissima quasi nera con la sua bella schiuma marrone compatta, il caffè, il cioccolato, i sapori tostati la rendono super, anche se non proprio estiva, anche per la gradazione di 10%. E’ ovviamente dolce con una tendenza finale al secco dato dalle spezie, chili appunto. Ottima. sharkydodson (1801) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - MAR 27, 2015
the aroma of caramel, licorice, chocolate, toffee and vanilla... the taste is very rough, caramel and chocolate with notes of licorice, toast, chili and spicy grasses... dry, sweet and very spicy aftertaste... oliodnb (670) - ITALY - MAR 2, 2015
50cl bottle shared. Pours pitch black with a small beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, bitter chocolate, coffee, red fruits and berries with an acidic component that starts a bit too strong but fades away as the beer warms up. Taste is similar, strong roastiness, coffee and chocolate again, some vanilla, some sweetness, acidic note again, strong bitter finish. Can?t almost feel the chili. Thick creamy mouthfeel, full body, light carbonation. A bit unbalanced. mtnw (92) - POLAND - FEB 15, 2015
.5 bottle. Nearly black with brown head. After one minute from pouring no lacing at all.Chocolate, coffee, alcohol, licorice, vanilla, chilli. All of them pretty intense but surprisingly balanced. For many it may be too spicy, for me it’s greatest way(combined with chocolate) to mask alcohol. I will buy another bottle and keep for chocolate-need-day.
