This is a gorgeous beer. Opaque, very dark brown, with a dark mocha, perfectly formed head. Strong aromas of milk chocolate and coffee. The mouthfeel is viscous and very pleasant. The flavors are comprised of chocolate milkshake and coffee. A bit of smokiness too. Theres some nice capsaicin burn at the finish. Man, this is an amazing creation.

kappldav123 (6022) - GERMANY - JUL 3, 2013
On tap at CBC 2012. Deep black in the glass, almost no head. Malty aroma with coffee hints. Starts intense malty, modest sweet, again some coffee. Soft-malty finish, well balanced. Nice!

Via trade with zombi3brainz. The aroma is chocolate. cocoa, vanilla.The appearance is a lovely black, big tan head. The flavor is chocolate, vanilla, hot pepper. The pepper really scorches on the finish. Nice thick creamy body. Honestly, the only drawback to this is the peppers. A little would have done this beer good. But as you drink more of this, the peppers dominate. Probably this wouldnt occur in a small serving. Nice beer, with this one drawback.

Another gem from Westbrook, tasted at CBC 2013. Very nice complex aroma of roasted malts, sweet coffee, chocolate/mocha, some spices or red peppers. Most of those come back in the taste, were the spices give it an extra bite. Nice desert!

BeerViking (4446) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2013
On tap at CBC 2013, Saturday evening, looks like a fine espresso, nose is coffee with faint chilli and liquorice, body is burnt caramel, coffee, more liquorice, chilli, and cinder toffee, the only downside is a cloying demerara sweetness in the aftertaste.

Draught at CBC 2013. Black, dark rich beige head. Fudgy, caramelly chocolate/cocoa aroma in a surprisingly well balanced mix. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Sweet with medium bitterness.

Tasted on tap &Craft beer co, London, 30/06/2012. Look is amazing, with dark brown foam, totally opaque. Aroma - smells of everything at the same time! Cacao beans, coffee, roasted malt, black pepper, vanilla far away - a demented mix! Taste - wow, it is the strangest stout I've ever tasted! definitely could drink it on a constant basis, but the taste is well balanced, number of different notes is incredible. Aftertaste - moderate bitter with pepper spiciness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
