COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
12 Beers of the Apocalypse #4. Peste Chocolate Chili Ale will plague you with the rich flavors of cocoa, chilies, and cinnamon in a beer of 7.5% ABV. A blend of Peruvian cocoa, Ceylon cinnamon, and chipotle, guajillo, pasilla, and cayenne peppers make this beer a unique distraction from the approaching end of the world as we know it. Brewed with Pale, Munich, C-77 Crystal, and Chocolate malts with roasted flaked barley, and nominally bittered with Magnum, this is the fourth of our 12 Beers of the Apocolypse heralding the winding down of the Mayan calendar.

Draft at special brews. Pours a near black with a light creamy tan head. Strange mix of sweet earthy green chile flesh and dark chocolate on the nose. Creamy medium body with livelyish carb. Sweet milk chocolate and pepper heat on the mid palate with a surprisingly sharp pepper finish.

Spicy.. It is supposed to taste like coco before it was sweetened. Delicious! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BrewDad (4987) - Olympia, Washington, USA - APR 26, 2012
Dark brown in color, hazy with a tan head. Big chocolate and spice aroma. Lots of Dark roast malt and good amount of spice in the brew. Very tasty and some heat comes off this. Not bad glad I am now saved from the bugs at the end of the world.

Pepper and chocolate in the nose - fantastic! Aftertaste - hot and awesome. Had it on tap at elysian triangle pub and It tasted like band-aid/medicine. Was it a combination of chili, chocolate, roasted malt and reisiny hops or a sanitizer is a question. It sure wasn’t good. I suggest you ask for a taster before ordering a pint.

Kellerstein (8) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - APR 21, 2012 does not count
Peppery aroma. Light ring of foam above cola black color. Spicy chocolate taste with persistant chipople and black pepper afterburn. One of the best pepper beers I have had. Brings sweat to the forehead and numbs the lip. Enjoyed from the tap at Ground Zero (Tangle Town) release party.
