On tap. Pours with a deep black hued body with a lasting, deep tan head. Aromas are of strong and dark chocolate, raisins, light heat, earthy, fudge and mild esters. Sipping the beer gives you a mild nasal/back of the throat burn. Flavors are of dry roast, chocolate, bready malt, plums, grainy, and some lactose character. Fuller bodied, lower carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(draught at Flying Saucer Addison) jet black pour, thick very dark brown head and great glass coating. Nose of bakers chocolate, green chiles, cocoa, and some chocolate syrup and raisin bits. Taste is quite spicy, but very smooth an subtle at the same time. Loads of milk chocolaty goodness but peppery and tingly on the palate. green chile notes abound but the predominant linger is not spicy, but smooth chocolate. A really neat beer. Not sure I needed the "biggie" they served me though.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2011 Served in a tall glass at the Addison Saucer. Kind of surprising to see a stout served in the tall weizen glasses.
The beer pours a very dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is heavy on the chocolate with some chilis mixed in. A fairly unique aroma and quite enjoyable.
The flavor is similar. I get a lot of sweet chocolate with some roasted malt, spice from the chilis and some cream notes. I also get a little bit of coffee. No hops in the aroma, this is all about the malt.
Medium to thick, creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice, easy drinking sweet stout with a nice added twist of peppers. Great beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2011 Tap at Ginger Man FW. Pours a very dark brown color with a reddish color that has a slight foamy tan head. It’s difficult to work up a head which is odd because I remember seeing someone with this beer last week and it was very foamy. The aroma is fairly nice. Roasted malts with chocolate cream and light coffee. Dark roasted chocolate with sweet cream and toasted notes. Easy coffee ground finish. This is fantastic! Great flavor and finish. Very nice but I think the keg is a little flat.
Update: Came back the next week and the carbonation was improved and the peppers much more pronounced. I like it even more!
