(Bottle) Black colour with lasting, creamy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of dark chocolate, black coffee, oak wood, black rye bread and a touch of cognac. Malty, roasted taste with dark chocolate, cacao, coffee, vanilla, dark bread, tobacco, oak wood, a touch of cognac and a balanced cacao bitterness in the finish. The chilli stays in the background at the first sip, but grows over time, and gets quite hot after a while. Slightly more than medium body, mainly dry but with some sweetness coming through. Quite complex and interesting. Still very well balanced. Very nice beer. 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.
