37.5cl green glass bottle pours with a nice dark body that supports a light mocha colored head of foam that leaves behind some spotty lacing. The aroma offers up chocolate malt balls, booze, more chocolate and then faint prune like fruity esters. The taste delivers full on rich sweetness that's jammy, brown sugar, prunes, figs and malts. Behind those notes are layers of chocolate, malt balls and soft sweetened dark roasted malts. Woven into the fabric of this beer's flavor is a booze boosted and sweetened thin spicy licorice sensation. This comes together nicely as a few more sips in I pick up a faint chili pepper note that adds a little heat to the mild alcohol burn. Solid. creppyiceman (1297) - POLAND - FEB 23, 2018

Aroma: coffee, hint of chili and note of liqourice.
Appearance: pitch black, small head.
Taste: sweet, flavour of coffee, llliquorice, bit spicy in a chilli way.
Palate: medoum to full body, low carbonation.
Overall: Nice, maybe it's because of aging but liqourice is barely noticeable. cinek (637) - krakow, POLAND - FEB 23, 2018

375. ml. no bottling date. Big nose is a nice blend of licorice, dark chocolate, espresso, raisin, dates, bread and soy. Deep black pour with a lasting disc of cream that looks like nitro. Flavors of dates, soy, prickly green herb, charred drift wood, banana, mild chili pepper, earthy cocoa and espresso. The chili is not overly evident at first but the capsiacin tingle grows and provides a nice balance to the big dessert flavors in this one. Medium-heavy body never gets sticky and is super drinkable. The dark malts, chilies and licorice hide the abv well. BHMarc (18) - - OCT 23, 2017
Dark, rich Imperial Stout with great complexity. Malt, bitter sweet chocolate , spices. Chilies add great flavor and enhance the malt and chocolate, but the beer is not at all spicy. Mild Smokey character.

The aroma is malts, caramel, coffee/chocolate and hints of chili peppers. Pours dark brown with mostly lasting tan head and excellent lacing. The taste is sweet and a touch bitter. The body is medium/full, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish long. Very good, tastes of chocolate, slight coffee and chilli peppers. A little late burn, seems more alcohol than peppers, but very good flavors. daje (4554) - NORWAY - MAY 7, 2017

Bottle. Pours nearly black with a dark beige head; aroma is licorice, malt, and vanilla with hints of wood. Taste is sweet with licorice, alcohol, roasted malt, and chocolate with hints of wood and vanilla; finish is bitter and slightly dry. Surprised the alcohol was not hidden better.
