Bottle of this from Doodler in a recent box. Cheers man!

Coffee, cacao, vanilla beans and chili peppers.

APPEARANCE: Muddy black pour yields a three finger, foamy, medium tan head with very good retention. Jet black body with slightly higher levels of carbonation. Slowly fades to a full foam cap, then a wisp and ring. A simple ring remains but leaves no lacing down the glass.

SMELL: All the adjuncts are there. Chilies are first, with coffee, vanilla and cacao nibs, showing up in that order. Light roast, sweet cream and milk chocolate notes. Everything is really balanced in the nose. Can't get much better than this really. Bold and wonderful.

TASTE: Really flavorful with vanilla, chocolate and light roasted notes up front. Creamy chocolate and coffee through the middle into a big and lingering finish of bitter chocolate and coffee, sweet milk chocolate, vanilla, sweet cream and some spicy chilies. Chilies are well measured and give a little bite and heat in the aftertaste, but aren't overpowering. Lots of adjuncts but they're all well there and well balanced. Perhaps a touch too much heat lingers, but just great.

PALATE: Medium body and slightly higher carbonation. Creamy smooth on the palate, goes down smooth with a chili scratch at the swallow, finishing slightly mouth-coating. A chili bite and some heat lingers, but still really good.

OVERALL: This is excellent. Could be a touch thicker and a have a touch less carbonation for top marks, I'm really getting nit picky here. Fantastic, and there's no way this is actually 14% ABV either. Easily equal to Mexican Cake, and a tick below Huna. World class in any respect. Thanks again Doodler. Highly recommended.

Thank you very much for this one, Jason! Pours a viscous, complete black color, with a small, soon diminishing brown head.

Intoxicating aromas of fresh crushed coffee beans, melted dark-chocolate, tobacco, hints of gentle vanilla, also scorched caramel and rock sugar accompanied by roasted malts.

Has a very creamy, chocolate defined beginning, with earthy, calming malts, which maintain the balance of this brew, as sweet molasse, caramel and pungent tobacco come up, to form a very convincing, smooth start. Then, soon, uncompromising, burned coffee bean notes get detectable, which counter the established, rich, earthy sweetness by adding an almost dry bitterness to the beer, while hot chili peppers lend a hot, spicy background depth. This spicy sting stays on the back of the palate till the very end, altough the beer finishes with great chocolate qualities, blended with bitter coffee tones. Complex, slick and smooth in the mouth, a full-bodied, fantastic beer.
