Big heat with the ABV and the chilies. Juicy pepper in the aroma. Pretty tasty. Rich cocoa tones, not unlike most Scandinavian stouts. The pepper adds some nice depth. Vegetal pepper tones last into the aftertaste. Quite a solid beer.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle at home. Finally locked down the original base beer of this formidable range. I love chilli in imperial stout. It’s a flavour sensaysh. This is a Black beer with a Beige head. Much like the others. Aroma is big and bold. Roasted malt and smoky ash. Full bodied caramel and ash flavour with that familiar chilli warmth. I love this beer and I love its brothers and sisters. This one is probably my favourite although the Sherry cask version is a close second.

Deep dark-brown without head. Aroma: sweet and a little coffee. Taste: medium sweet, nice. So much paper in the finish. It’s quate balanced, but a too hot.
