3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml Bottle. Surprisingly golden orange in appearance with off-white head and lots of particles floating around in the glass. Aroma is a mix of chili powder, cocoa nibs and floral honey. The flavor is predominately fire roasted chiles and honey with notes of cocoa powder, dessert spice and cereal malt toward the end. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with moderate carbonation and a peppery alcohol finish. Overall, a flavorful blend of chocolate, honey and chili flavors.

On draft at the Gaithersburg brew house. Pours a cloudy orange amber with an off white head. Mild malt aroma. Nice blending of flavors with non of the special ingredients dominating. Quite drinkable and unusual.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy appearance. Amber color with minimal head. Lacing spotty at best. Honey and vanilla are noticeable in the aroma. There is a hint of bubble-gum that comes out in the aroma after it warms up a little bit. Peppermint all of a sudden hits me in the face as I went to taste it. A little watery on the palate. Carbonation medium. Medium-bodied beer. The finish leaves a slight sweetness on the lips. Definitely can taste honey in the beginning and finishes with a little heat. Dogfish head did not disappoint. Very enjoyable beer. Refreshing.

Pores a light copper colour with a big white head that dies down to nothing. No lace. Nose of caramel malt, booze, bit of wood. Tastes a bit of alcohol burn, that lingers, which makes me think its the pepper. Caramel too.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy golden yellow with off white head. Light aroma of sweetness and pale grains. The flavor is musty slightly off pale grains with a touch of sweetness and a healthy chili powder spice. The carbonation is sparkling and leaves a bit of the honey lingering with the chili?s. Not bad but slightly musty grain puts a soon on it with the added ingredients and it would not be a go to flavor. Very different for a cocoa chili beer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy, dull apricot color with thin white head and good lacing. Nose is unassuming (light maltiness, a hint of cacao pods). Mouth is creamy and slightly sweet, with an almost Scotchy malty heather note and some faint heat from the chiles towards the back of the throat, then a smooth transition through some honey and hints of cocoa. Finishes slightly warm. Nice

Very interesting beer. Pale straw color with some red hues and slightly hazy. Grassy, musty aroma with a slight chocolate note. Tastes of bitter dark chocolate and slightly bitter grapefruit citrus. Medium light body with a slight alcohol warmth. Interesting beer that really grows on you.
