Pour out of can, dark black pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of big chili, chocolate, nice cinnamon, earth, some coffee, toffee, sweet cocoa, nice balance overall. Taste is nice, a little watery, but nice chocolate, coffee, hints of chili and pepper notes, some cinnamon, toffee, finishing fairly sweet, bitter, and dry, with a slight hint of heat. This works fairly well.

can. dark brown body, small dirty brown head. nose is almost entirely nutmeg and pumpkin spice with only a small bit of dark chcocolate dark malt. oily and syruoy with soy sauce / ink black malt, flabby, thin texture, low carbonation and starchy, husky pumpkin spice powder. very low chile presence. I made a foreign stout with chiles for my fifth batch of homebrew, it was better than this, and i am a terrible brewer.

Clearish black with no head after about 5 seconds. Quite a nice aroma of smokey chocolate, a slight peppery chili vegetal heat, and slightly burnt toast. Flavor is nice and smooth with very fine carbonation and a balanced body. Flavor starts with some bittersweet dark chocolate, toast, caramel, and roasted chilis that lie kinda quiet and just accent the beer without dominating the sweetness. Slight cinnamon tone throughout. Found this quite lovely.

gyllenbock (8686) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 20, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget. Almost black with no head. A lot of spices in this one, ginger and some cinnamon. Also pepper, licorice, ash and chili. A lot of carbonation. A strange beer, hard to rate.

Ibrew2or3 (8493) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Can pours deep amber with a thin tan head of foam. The aroma offers up some dark roasted malts, molasses covered cinnamon graham cracker and then a nice level of chili pepper. The taste delivers dark roasted malts, some sweet molasses and a sense of cinnamon. It gets to a modest degree of chili pepper taste and heat heading into the finish. Pretty nice.

Svesse (8358) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - JAN 27, 2014
(Bottle) Black colour with quickly disappearing, foamy head. Malty, spicy nose with notes of black coffee, cocoa, dark chocolate, chilli, ginger, dark fruit and dark chocolate. Malty, spicy taste with cocoa, black coffee, ashes, liquorice, ginger, chilli and a spicy finish with a balanced roasty bitterness. Medium body, with a slight sweetness. Quite sharp carbonation. Strange beer, behaves and tastes like a soft drink with chilli, ginger and cocoa. Lots of flavours, but quite unbalanced and a bit artificial. Weird, hardly and success, but still quite drinkable.

Ernest (7596) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy/fizzy, brown, fully diminishing. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is lightly malty (chocolate), with notes of detergent and other assorted cleaning products (Lysol, etc.), chile peppers, nutmeg/allspice, plastic (vinyl), shoe polish, pine needles, peppermint, etc. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, syrupy/watery texture, lively carbonation, light chile burn. Blech. Aroma is a combo of really weird off-notes and of course the vegetal peppers and some holiday spices. Very random and artificial smelling, doesnt even smell like something you would eat/drink, its like something that wafts out of Yankee Candle Company 20 feet from the entrance. Pretty horrific stuff, quite honestly.

Draught at Freshcraft. Chocolate and fall spices like anything you get in pumpkin beer. Also strong hints of the chilies.
