Tap flight at Flying Saucer San Antonio. Dark brown pour with a well laced beige head. Aroma is coffee and earthy chile. Taste has earthy green chile characteristics but is more coffee and vanilla prevalent with a touch -- but not much -- chile heat. Somewhat slippery in the mouth. Bartender steered me away from this. She was wrong.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap pours brown black with lasting lacing tan foam. The aroma is almost all fresh cut green chili’s with a tiny bit of the roasted malt coming thru. The flavor is more along stout line with a slightly creamy roasted malt and a touch of sweetness that follows the punch of Serrano peppers. Seeded spiciness brings a robust flavor with a little chili heat, but does so in a very functional way with the rest of the beer. It really somehow works to the best of both worlds drinking easily and pairing very well with many dishes. Bold with a lasting tingle from the peppers and moderate carbonation, makes a 9% stout seem tame. I love peppers and stout’s so this was a nice enjoyable beer, about the best chili beer I’ve tried.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a dark brown, opaque. Fresh brewed coffee, olives, and fresh chilies on the nose. Mouthfeel is silky, creamy, and full. Chocolate up front. A lot smoke, olives, and fresh green chilies emerge in the middle. Finishes with a little puckerdness, if you will. This is a fun and magnificent beer.
