Tried this at The Hop at Beacon, NY...Went really well with their food offerings. The spicy kick was great...and the beer, though dark, was easier to drink than we expected. Got a growler to go, as I am not sure where to fine it in NYC

marcus (6343) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 14, 2013
On tap at Capitol Beer, Sacramento. Pours near black with a nice tan head and a chocolate, treacle and pepper aroma. There is a full-bodied dark molasses flavor with just the right amount of heat.

Tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours quite black with a creamy tan head. Aroma is slightly smoky. Med body. Flavor is smoky with chili burn. Mild dark malt. Some chocolate. Finishes sort of smoky, spicy, subdued baking chocolate. Strongly flavored. Good stuff.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 28, 2013
At Old Grove. Pours a dark brown caramel color and a minimal espresso head. Aroma is heavy chipotle and cocoa. Taste is semi sweet with a heavy dose of chipotle and adobo. Thinner bodied and a touch dry. Good, but I wish it were a tad sweeter. I love the heat level, which is probably toouch for most people. There is never a doubt whether Ballast Point uses chili peppers.

Ktwse (1883) - SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2013
Pours black with low tan head. Aroma of coffee and tons of chipotle, some german sausage and smoke. Taste is an onslaught of chipotle and peppers with coffee bitterness looming in the background. Body is light with soft carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GT2 (8270) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Tap at Tony’s Darts Away in Burbank, CA. Pours a opaque deep cola with red highlights. Nose at first is all roasted jalapeño then gains some licorice and cherry. Savory and rich. Big impending heat in the nose. Taste at first is ridiculously thin for porter, more brown ale. Licorice and anise bite at the beginning gets obliterated by hefty jalapeño that is powerful and lingering without any saving hop balance. Harder to drink than Naga Chili Dorado DIPA.
