Mega Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Thanks to Jack and Bruce. Opaque dark brown beer, good tan head. Palatebis light and dry. Rich dark malt. Strong and slightly bitter dark toffee and chocolate. Mild chilli burn kicks in. Tasty and rich but I am tired of chilli in stouts.
Draft in Washington, DC - where else? Admits no light. Brown head. Aroma of licorice, burnt rubber, espresso pot that’s been left on the burner for three days. Taste is burnt bitter espresso, burnt smouldering brownies, anise. Definitely a big beer, my throat burns now, and the finish lasts half an hour. Reminds me of a lite version of Mikkeller Black. cgarvieuk (24230) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 2, 2014

Bottle shared in London during Josh’s last tasting at Bruce’s. big thanks to Jack and Bruce for these bottles. Pours deep, ruby-brown with a frothy khaki head. Rich and acidic coffee on the nose, some torched meat, well roasted malts. Medium sweet flavor, somewhat dry, lots of burnt toast, dry dark fruits, burnt marshmallows, baking cocoa, very mild red chili spice. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Dynamic finish with further baking cocoa, oily coffee, restrained chili heat, mild burnt wood and earth bitterness. Lots of complexity and quite nicely balanced, fiulijn (20411) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 16, 2014

Pour a pitch black color, thick, with brown medium sized head.
The aroma is very interesting; there are waves of good coffee, burnt bread, liquorice, hints of tobacco and incense.
Strong body, not thick, with a smooth and round mouthfeel; it has more roasted malt flavor than chocolate, a bit ashy, but luckily it has a moderate residual sweetness to support, also a slight acidity; the peppers provide a nice counterpart and complexity, with mild hotness; unfortunately there is too much liquorice, although it’s less evident while taking more sips.
For this kind of beer, the final is weaker than expected, short, and vague.
A good beer, more chaotic than complex, not impressive.
