Bottle, 6.6%. Good roasted aroma, hint of mild smoke. Black colour, seems hazy. Big stable brown head. The flavour starts off roasted, and quickly turns to chili. Has a good chili burn, distinct, but not unpleasantly strong. I do not taste the barrel much. NoiZe (2394) - Zeist, NETHERLANDS - AUG 4, 2011
Had this one at the ACBF 2011. Brown, black colored brew. Malty aroma, roast, vanilla, coffee. Also in flavor. Sweetness too and boozy. harrisoni (19556) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2011
At ACBF 2011. Yes, lots of intense aroma. Intense choc. Yes too dry maybe. Vanilla is ok. More dry cocoa. Heat on finish. Benzai (16931) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2011
Had this at Alvinne CBF 2011. Pitch black color. Smell caramel, roasty, chocolate, coffee, nuts, vanilla. Taste also has a lot of the same characters as the aroma has, but especially chili peppers. I absolutely taste those, and I don’t like it. Very weird this beer. fugitive (2061) - Athens, GREECE - JUL 3, 2011

375 ml bottle. BBE 26.1.2017.tiong (7754) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 11, 2011
Pours a pitch black colour with a thick beige head. Aroma of birch leaves, dark chocolate and vanilla. Actually reminds me of sauna. Flavour of roasted malts, vanilla, birch leaves, dark chocolate, smooth hops and a slightly burning chili finish. Full bodied with a thick mouthfeel and a dry, warming, chili finish with some vanilla notes. Great, not too much chili here.
375ml bottle from BierkompassKoelschtrinker (22084) - KÃ¶ln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 3, 2011
Pours pitch black with a nice brown head. Aroma has hints of roasted malts, chocolate and vanilla. Taste is a bit roasty with notes of vanilla, oak, coffee and spices. Nice roasted and warming finish. Chili gives a nice touch to it. Complex, unusual, great. Well balanced.
Holziger Antrunk mit Chilinuancen, muffig. Der Mittelteil ist überraschen mild – fast wässrig – bevor Malz und Chili wieder zuschlagen. Scharf, gleichzeitig cremig. Nur die Vanille vermisse ich... 11/8/9/11/12/9

Black of colour with a brown head. An aroma of roasted malt, spice, coffee. A flavor of roasted malt, liqurice, spice and some weak burning notes of chili. dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2011
Aroma is deep chocolate, cacao, barrel, wood, spice, tobacco, etc.
Flavour is woody, muddy chocolate, barrel, spice, spicy peppers, lingering for quite a bit. Very weird, but in a good way.
