Bootle Pitch black colour with a small tan head. Aroma of belgian pralines, strong cofee with notes of chili. The beer is dry, with a solid bitterness that makes it feel bitter cocoa, chocolate. The presence of chili in the form of light sharpness and heating in the throat. But at all it’s perfectly balanced, really pleasant one. rotaman14 (707) - Wiesbaden, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2016
Black body, brown head. Aroma is instant coffee, dessert chocolate, maybe a faint hint of vanilla if you know it’s supposed to be there. Fairly average stout aroma. Taste is medium bitter, roasty, malty, while a chili spicness (or rather burn) lingers. Creamy texture, heavy body. Hansen (8615) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JAN 24, 2016
A bit too much laqurice. Almost black coloured with a light-brown head, diminishing. Heavy laqurice aroma, medicine, sweet. tricksta_p (5162) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is dark malt, lots of creamy chocolate, roast, surprisingly strong dark fruits, jam, pleasant chili peppers, vanilla, some coffee, hint of liquorice. Flavour is about medium sweet with a little bitterness in the finish. Leaves a little chili burn in the throat. Lovely and complex Imperial Chili Stout.

Bottle - 500ml. Pours a thick, opaque, black body with very low carbonation and a thick, fading brown foamy head. Strong, well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with cocoa, roasty, plummy, and peppery hints. Alcool is subtle. Its rich malty/hoppy taste carries strong licorice notes. Ends with a warming peppery finish. Interesting, but a bit weird.

[Bottle (500ml)] Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with an average size diminishing frothy tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark fruit, light spices and a bit of coffee. Interesting flavour, it’s sweet, roasty and spicy along with a good amount of leafy hops. Alcohol is well hidden. Medium bodied. Pretty good beer. Boutip (6533) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 1, 2016
Bottle: Poured a deep black color stout with a large brown foamy head with good retention. Aroma of chili is easily noticeable with some roasted malt and black chocolate notes also easily perceptible. Taste is a mix of roasted malt with some black chocolate notes with strong spicy finish. Body is full with nice creamy body and good carbonation with no apparent alcohol notes. Too spicy for my taste buds and 500ml could be easily share between many people.

500 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a very dark drown with large mocha-coloured head. Aroma is big on both roast and chili pepper with a little sweetness from the cocoa as well as some anise. Flavour has a rich stouty character with lots of cocoa, licorice and molasses, then some moderate chili heat in the finish. Slick mouthfeel. Not too into chili beers but this is one of the better ones. rob6239 (677) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2015
From bottle. Dark brownish-black in colour, little head. Oily in glass. Taste was strong with both chocolate and the chili pepper but I thought they competed with each other
