Bottle at trailer. Black body with tan head. Chili pepper, chocolate fudge, ashy, coffee, roasty aromas. Smooth medium body. Very nice chocolate syrup, medium roast coffee, smooth vanilla flavors with a mild chili pepper twang to finish----very good. koleminer20 (3942) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - SEP 20, 2015
Two 12 oz bottles shared by ebone1988. The pour is a nice light black with some ruby poking through and a thin collar of light tan head and no real lace. The aroma is overwhelmingly chocolate. There is a nice coffee and a good vanilla. The chilis are present, but relaxed, which is what I really like. The flavor is really good also. There is a dominating chocolate it's a powdered cocoa that controls it. The vanilla and the coffee are way overshadowed here. The chilis make an appearance on the far back end and sooth the booze that doesn't come through at all. The mouth feel is great. Thick and viscous with a soft velvety carbonation and a lingeringly chocolatey, roasty finish. Great stout.

On tap at Beavertown Rainbow Project 2015, Tottenham, London. A black coloured pour with a medium beige head on top. Rich, chocolate, coffee, vanilla aroma. Tastes similar, very rich, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, hint of chilli. Hard to believe this was 13% alcohol. An excellent Imperial stout, glad to have found it at last.

Aroma: massive filter coffee and chocolate, toasted malts. Appearance: black, hardly any head. Taste: medium sweet. Palate: sweets return to light, some dry bitters coming up, cacao, a touch watery, dark chocolate, coffee. Overall: nice Imperial Stout, could be smoother in the palate. Pint at Beavertown Brewery, Tottenham.

Fantastic! Dark chocolate forward, smooth medium toast coffee, rich vanilla, espresso and cream. Spicy pepper finish, but not overly hot. Perfect balance between sweet, spicy and bitter. Hints of brown sugar and cream brulee. harrisoni (19310) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2015

Bottle thanks to my buddy Paulo! Dark color. Thin and persistent brown head. Medium body. Finishes long and spicy. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, vanilla, chili. Quite good! JFParnell (71) - Washington, USA - SEP 18, 2015
I just don’t think chiles or pepper should ever be used in beer. Every one that I have had just doesn’t taste like it was meant to be a drink. I don’t like the afterbite, and this beer is no different. I think that overall it is just the in beer amongst the in crowd. Not to my liking at all. Too bitter, with a hot back bite. Alcohol taste is almost non existent for a 14% beer. The rest of the flavors just don’t mix either combining to make a very chemical taste. Turtles (2961) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 18, 2015
355ml bottle from Systembolaget, bought in March 2015, vintage 2015. Black with a small compact, creamy beige head. Wow !!! Intense aroma, dark chocolate, coffee beans, chili, vanilla, Ben and Jerry’s Baked Alaska. Mouthfeel and taste is complex, an overdose of impressions. Full-bodied, thick, creamy, chewy !! The taste begins pleasantly sweet with chocolate, toffee and vanilla, then comes the spicy taste of chili fruit, licorice, espresso beans and warming alcohol.
