Bottle. Pours black with a creamy beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, malt, fruitiness and whisky. Flavor is sweet and malty with some caramel, roasted malt, smoked wood and chocolate. Medium to full body, average carbonation. Leighton (22019) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2012
Keg at the Craft Beer Co., London. Pours deep brown with a small, beige foam head. Aroma holds some dark chocolate, hints of chili peppers, modest roast. Flavor is light to medium sweet with some dry wood, whiskey, and a good spicy chili kick. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. The spiciness picks up some speed in the finish but is pleasantly offset by some burnt, woody dryness and roasty cocoa. I wouldn’t mind if the beer had a bit more body and sweetness, but pretty darn good as is. thirdeye11 (6162) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 2, 2012

Black color with tan head. Dry wood, dry chocolate, smoke aromas. medium body with soft co2. Mild pepper flavors with dark roast, dry wood, dark chocolate--good brokensail (16633) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 7, 2012
The pour is black in color with a tan head. Aroma isn’t very good. Green apple, paint thinner, and alcohol. Some roasted malt and maybe a bit of dark chocolate. Really quite abrasive. The flavor is a touch better than the nose, luckily. Green apple, chocolate, roast, alcohol, and maybe just a hint of whiskey. There’s a weird chlorine flavor to it, too. I don’t really get any of the peppers. Too bad as the regular version was quite good. canuck_j (80) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 3, 2012
Aroma big fruit cake nose with a wide variety of smells including molasses and lemons and dates
APPEARANCE Midnight dark with a big chocolate head and great lacing
TASTE: Big roast and chocolate malts with dates and plums and molasses in the finish absolutely delicious, marvelous Scotch finish and a almost cloying sweetness to be balanced off by hops- would cure malaria I’m sure.
PALATE as big and thick as a beer can be with delectable hops right at the end pinching things up a bit
OVERALL absolutely superb beer with now known reason not to have another burg326 (5593) - Florida, USA - JUN 24, 2012
350ml bottle bought at Lukens, poured a dark brown with some red highlights, aromas of chocolate, light chipotle, dark fruit, touch of roast, and a smidge of booze. Flavors are the same, little vanilla thrown in there, not much heat from the peppers, and not much booze from the whiskey as I expected.
