Appearance - Dark brown to black (I didn't drink it somewhere well-lighted) with a thick but small head.

Smell - Chocolate with a hint of the chili pepper, and something sweet I can't quite identify.

Taste - This one packs a punch. The heat isn't really noticeable at first, but over time it really develops. Lots of chocolate, and a bit of an oatmeal stout flavor to it. It's a Serious Stout, and surprisingly one that improves as it warms. I wasn't really sold on it at first, but as I've worked my way through the glass, the flavor has grown on me. About halfway through, the cognac barrel shines through and really serves as a nice complement.

Mouthfeel - Thick, but still quite smooth. Low carbonation, which in my estimation is always a good thing. Not much alcohol heat for the abv, but the chili heat picks up over the course of a glass.

Overall - A monster stout, and quite well-rounded with the cognac smoothness and chili spice. Definitely worth a tasting if you run across one. (993 characters)

375 ml bottle. Served in a Great Lakes Brewing chalice, the beer pours dark brown black with a couple inch frothy tan head that sticked around a long time. There's also a good amount of lacing. The brew smells like roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate, coffee and chili peppers. It tastes like roasted malt, smoke, bittersweet and milk chocolate, chili peppers, molasses and some coffee. The chili pepper in this beer isn't strong at all. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's slick and creamy with moderate carbonation. Pretty easy to drink for a beer that's 12.3% ABV. Overall, I liked this brew. It's nice and tasty, although I wish there was more of a chili pepper kick to it. $12.99 a bottle. (694 characters)

Black with brown head into my SAPP. Nice lacing. Sweet roasted malt and chocolate covered bananas. Roasted malt,plum,and raison. A delightful stout with so much booze. Sweet malt finish. Medium mouthfeel and boozy on tip of my tongue. Great - hard to place the alcohol-another dangerous one. (291 characters)

Had this beer while travelling in Barcelona

A - Pitch black body with a thin chestnut head.

S - Smoke, milk chocolate, and hints of chili pepper spice.

T - A overwhelming rush of sweet milk chocolate hits the tongue at first. Then, creeps in a smoky spiciness that just keeps building throughout the tasting. The finish is rich, sweet, boozy, and spicy, with no bitterness from the hops or roasted malt.

M - Very frothy, almost meringue body. Weird, but it kind of works to lift up the heaviness of the body. Unlike any beer I've ever had.

O - For a Danish chili beer, this exceeded all expectations. The spiciness was warming and pungent. The mouthfeel is certainly from left field, though. Well worth a try! (714 characters)
