Beautiful dark color. Wheat colored head with exceptional retention which blankets the glass in creamy lace.

Mildly roasted notes of cocoa and espresso in the nose. Hint of chili peppers.

Flavor follows the nose well. Spices, chili peppers and cocoa are subtle. Love the bold roasted character. Balanced with a burnt sugar flavor.

Medium body. Disappointingly, minimal carbonation. Rich, grainy texture allows the flavors to linger.

Overall, a very tasty, fresh and unique offering from Mikkeller.

Was hoping for more from this one. Never saw something with this kinda spice to it. But reallt, to me, it fell flat. Pours a jet black with a small tan head. Smells more roasted than anything. Taste was more stout than anything. Didn't really notice any spice. Little bit of pepper, coffee and some chocolate. I suppose I put my expectations to high. Good beer, solid choice, just not what I actually wanted.

A: Dark brown to black with a reddish tinge on the edge when held to the light. On top, 3 fingers of dark rusty brown foamy head.


S: Tequila, chocolate, cocoa, cereal bran, some strange scents like carob. Soy sauce, licorice.


T: Dark chocolate, carob, light spicy quality, then hit with hard shelled peppermint gum, then some exotic spices like almost sandalwood, herbal qualities like avocado with its peel. Soy sauce, licorice, a floral quality like lilacs, a lightly sour note like cider vinegar. Its got some interesting herbs that I can’t identify as well, almost like Thai spa herbs. At times there’s a smokiness as well.


M: Thick smooth oily body, very little carbonation.


O: Wow. An excellent brew. Really loving this one. Got it at Mikkeller Bar in Bangkok today, March 1st, 2015. One of those rare brews unlike any other that Mikkeller does. Complex and keeps me drinking it.

Flavor is really hard to unpack. Cool beer, but not an everyday session situation

Draft @ Mikkeller Bar SF on 1/19/20. Pours dark brown in color with slight tan head. Aroma of chills, chocolate, with some sweet almond and smoke. Flavor is chocolate, brown sugar, noticeable but not overbearing chili, and some smoke. Mouthfeel is relatively thin. Very nice flavor profile, although personally I would have enjoyed some more chili pepper heat.
