Bottle thanks to timfoolery: Poured a thick black with tan to light brown head. Aroma is strong spice with dark chocolate. Taste is rich dark chocolate with a chile spice bite, very tasty with roasted malt as well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, large sample. Dark color, short lasting creamy brown head. Aroma of milk chocolate, vanilla, hint of chili, hint of vanilla, some roasted malts, hint of licorice. Flavor is slight spicy, bit dry, quite bitter from malts. The chile gives a tiny bite, but more a little vegetably hint on top of milk chocolate and licorice. Itís quite tasty, but it seems a bit unbalanced in its flavors. The spice from the chili is not that hot, so that bite is actually quite well balanced, but it doesnít seem to match completely with the chocolate and roast.

Bottle from MGM Eagan, aroma of chocolate and some very subtle chili with bold roasted malts. Taste is similar, malts and chili without the burn.

10 ounce sample on tap at Davis Beer Shoppe. The aroma has some peppery smokiness present. Light underlying chocolate sweetness is there, too. Pretty peppery. Opaque black body with a strong, creamy, yellow-tan head. Good lacing. Starts with sweet cocoa and light roasted flavors. A little dry and chalky in the middle. Finishes with some light anise. Not overly burnt or roasty or boozy. Easy drinking. Donít appreciate the pepper/cinnamon/vanilla in the flavor, though.

Black pour with eighth inch cola colored head. Sweet chocolate scent, light though. Low carbonation, thin chalky mouthfeel, slightly dry finish. Really malty sweet chocolate and cola syrup flavor. Not bad but too sweet.

Smooth - massively bodied - Choc liqueur after-taste - just beautiful. Tasted after the Rogue Voodoo and not a million miles different except in alcohol taste. A sipping beer. Really enjoying it.
