Bottle from Binnyís in Bloomingdale, IL. Dark cola pour with a small ring head. I really like the aroma on this - malty, hint of chocolate, and some chili spice. Taste is pleasant - mild roast, mild sweet, and again a hint of the roasted chili late but not spicy hot or anything. Decent brew.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Draft at Hopleaf. Pours deep brown with a small off white head. Aroma is fairly simple, sweet lightly chocolatey malts, some spicy notes, caramel. Flavor is a bit more complex, though the beginning is pretty straightforward, sweet light roasty, a touch nutty, the chileís finally come out in the end adding some interesting lingering bite and earthy character. Medium body and a soft with crisp carbonation. Ok, but I was hoping for more all around depth and complexity in the flavor.

wedgie9 (2507) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 26, 2012
Tasted on draft in May 2011 at the Glunz Beer Expo. Pours hazy light amber with a thick white head that leaves a thin collar of lace. The nose is malty caramel with some dark chocolate, bitter coffee, and overall general roasted notes. The flavor is very roasted with dark chocolate, coffee, a hint of caramel, and spicy peppers on the back of the throat. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long roasted and spicy chili pepper finish.

Patrickctenchi (4965) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Pours clear, dark, wet copper with a tall, thick, tan head. Scent is spiced caramel....sugar... Taste is caramel....chilis are noticeable but not overblown..... Malty. Increasing peppery tones as it warms and finishes. An interesting little oddity....well worth a try.

ChiGuy68 (451) - Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. Poured a rich, dark brown with a tan head. Mild malt and spice aroma. Iím a pepper fan so I like the hit of Ancho Chilli. Itís an unusual beer, but it works for me.

Awktoberfest (336) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Good beer... Tastes like a malty Oktoberfest with spice and more layers of complexity... Nice ale... Real smooth and drinkable not spicy... Just a slight hint towards the presence of the chili... Pretty good Chicago beer via Wisconsin ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
