I love this beer, more so on draught than in a bottle, but still.

It's got a smokiness and a spiciness at the end. Not overly spicy though...nothing that sets your mouth on fire. Nice full mouthfeel, but crisp.

The description might put you off, but I've been in large groups where everybody enjoys it, so give it a try.

Pours a deep black with no head. Aroma is of sweet cacao, dark malt with a kind of sweet fruity peppery scent. Taste is same as aroma with mild sweet spice notes and bitterness on the end for balance, a bit of smoke. Mild peppery heat with chocolate malt on the finish. A medium body on the palate, slightly creamy with good carbonation. An interesting combination, not too sweet or spiced. Overall an good drinking brew

Bottle.

Pitch black.

Nice aroma of dark chocolate.

Taste is what's promised — chocolate cayenne. Interesting.
