Bottle. Pours a dark amber color with a beige head. Aroma is of smoked chili, caramel and toffee and some dark fruits notes with cocoa bean. The flavor follows the nose with subtle chili spice and the smoked chili flavor, some caramel, toffee, dark fruits and cocoa bean. The body is medium with a silky mouth feel. Overall an interesting brew.

bottle @ The Andersons / Columbus OH --- Clear dark brown color, light beige rim head, lace dots. Taste is lightly toasted malt that moves through a non-carbonated swallow to a finish that features light hops and light fire. It’s okay, but certainly nothing exceptional.

ajnepple (4383) - Colorado, USA - OCT 22, 2015
12 oz single bottle from Molly’s Spirits. Dark brown appearance with a small tan head that dissipated to nothing quickly. Aroma of chile peppers, brown sugar, caramel malt and toffee. Similar flavor, adding chocolate, cinnamon, mild earthy bitterness and a light spicy finish. Light to medium body, a bit dull and watery, with a light dry feel. Not awful, but kind of unpleasant and tough to drink. Pairing: Phish - Vultures -> Limb By Limb, from 09/21/1999, Pima County Fairgrounds, Tucson, AZ

mansquito (4649) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 27, 2015
State and Lake, Chicago tap: pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is light chocolate and pepper. Chili taste is not very light in there, and this is not spicy as some beers are, but the flavor is there. Mostly a malty beer that is moderately sweet. Not bad.

youdictategood (467) - Florida, USA - SEP 14, 2015
Single bottle from mix pack. Pours a hazy reddish-brown, very thin, soapy head. Aroma of chocolate, yeast, a little vanilla extract. Flavor is very sweet up front, but backs off to something a little more balanced. Pepper component is there in taste, but doesn’t add any spice. Approach it like a brown ale and you’ll probably enjoy it.

scarletfire65 (1242) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 16, 2015
Draft at Gino’s East on Dearborn. Amber brown pour. Aroma is roasty malts and a bit of earthy chili. Dry, thin, notes of dried chili, coffee, charred wood. Hollow, dry finish. Lacks depth and body. Could use more malt character. Reminiscent of a dry Irish stout.
