4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Near black with a small tan head. Aroma of roast, chocolate, and roasted sweet and hot peppers. Taste is rich chocolate and roasted malt, a little fruit, and mild heat. An excellent balance, there’s enough pepper to taste and get a touch of heat, without the overkill of peppers that brewers often use. Medium-full bodied and silky. This, like Texas Ranger, is one of the few pepper beers that make me want more than one in a sitting. Excellent.

On Tap- Pour is dark brown with light head..Aroma is Chocolate and Malts and a hints of sweetness, Taste is Bold with chocolate and roasted malts...I didn’t catch the Spice until after 8oz of it. The spice is light and perfectly balanced that lingers in the back of the throat and palate. A perfect Stout from (512)

Damn good beer. But best in small quantities. I started feeling the lingering pepper heat after maybe 8 ounces. Overall smooth and crisp with tons of coffee, spice and creamy Notes.

Pours very dark brown with minimal head. Nice roasty malt flavor with good chile flavor and a small amount of burn on the finish. Interesting.

On tap at Petrol Station. Pours black with a brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of roasted malt and light coffee with a nice backing creaminess. Flavor begins with a bit of sweet chocolate and roasted malts but finished slightly weak with a hint of roast and a bit of heat that lasts.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours black into the glass with a tan head. Aroma is slightly roasty. Flavor is chocolate and coffee with a very subtle head from the cascabel peppers on the back end. The only disappointing part of this beer is its mouthfeel. Relatively thin for a cream stout. That being said this is the first beer with peppers in it that I’ve enjoyed.

Faint scent of chocolate and creme, not much there though. I can’t get much of a head on it, not sure if it’s this batch. Good flavor of chocolate, not too overbearing. Good mouthful and finishes smooth.
