Ferris (7970) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2013
Draft - Chocolate, chipotle and gap dark roast. Jet black with light head. Chocolate, chipotle and a bit of chilli heat on the back of the throat. Well done, likely the best chipotle beer I have had.

On tap at Ballast Point (scripts Ranch Location). Pours with a near black hued body with a small tan head. Aromas are intensely smokey, strong chipotle, earthy, dusty cocoa, bloody mary, earthy spice. Flavors show a moderate peppery heat presence, chipotle, smokey, earthy, nutty, spice, cocoa. Medium bubbles with a fuller body and a mild heat. That said, its not the easiest beer to drink.

"Another pepper beer, another winner. It doesn’t hurt that these are mostly excellent beers to begin with, but damn...where will it end. The super smooth Black Marlin is still such, with hints of bittersweet cocoa and smokey chipotle spice (mild) in the nose and flavor. Another treat."

TheAlum (6373) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2011
22 oz bottle shared at Kan’s. Thanks! Pours a nice murky brownish pour, some lighter edges, with a decent frothy tannish brown head. Laces small. Aromas are some lighter cocoa, toffee, and toast, touches of roast and light peppery life. Initial is medium to lighter bodied, some moderate chili bite up front with some good earthy chiles, light cocoa, toffee, and roast. Some coffee, toast, and biscuits. The chiles take over a bit, moving into heat, pepper. A bit overwhelming. Warm finish. Interesting, not bad. But the peppers really take a dominant hold and is a bit harsh/not as well integrated as hoped for.

badlizard (5535) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAY 25, 2010
Black with a fizzy head. Roasted grain and subtle pepper aroma. Chocolate and sweet roasted grain up front with a pepper heat on the back end. Pretty good.

TimE (4142) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 2, 2013
Dark brown color. Huge cocoa, chilli notes in the nose with a touch of tobacco. The mouth is malty, fairly dry, lots of chilli and chocolate. Spicy cacao finish. Very nice and I like this experiment.
