On tap at their tasting room. Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is chocolate and some slight chilis. Very interesting. Flavor has chocolate and lots of chilis. Really interesting. Nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

>> Inky pour with webby tan foam. Aroma of jalapeños, green chili explosion, tootsie roll, green beans. Taste is green beans, green chilis up front, huge spicy chili bite though the finish with bitter chocolate and cocoa. Assertive chili pepper with rich dark chocolate comes together impressively. Works well save for the green bean flavor and aroma. Heat factor is 7/10. Aggressive but not overpowering. Dense body with balancing sugar. Fun beer all around. The wife loved it, so that is a good sign.

Growler picked up at the brewery, drank the same night as filled
Black with a medium sized tan head, good lacing. Aroma of chilies, vegetal and dark chocolate. Taste of dark malts, chocolate with a mild chili burn in the throat
A nice stout, the chili’s added just enough to enjoy them, not overpowering.

On firkin. The pour is dark with a full head. The aroma is spicy and chocolate. The taste is nice and thick. The peppers definitely dominate the beer. A smooth heat at the end of the drink. A good stout as well. The heat got to me a little by the end of the beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BBB63 (6154) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Tap @ Binny’s LP Tasting room, tulip: pours near opaque with a nice lasting head and very good lace. Lovely brew with just the right amount of heat versus roast and char. Not overly grassy or veggie like most of these peppered beers can be. Hint of chocolate, coffee, and tobacco as well. This is very well executed.

Surprised to see this was an IS, the alcohol was well hidden though this is not a super high IS. On tap at Tap and Mallet. Very well done. But I had to keep swigging Anne’s Three Heads beer when the chili’s overpowered my buds. Nose is licorice, smoky, and charred malt. Dark thick palate. Nicely balanced by the peppers that truly acted like peppers can do, they crept up on you. Not overdone but spicy.

mikkelmohr (3) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 26, 2014 does not count
Growler from taproom, Mira Mesa, San Diego. Aroma: Chilis, green/red peppers, roasty aromas Apperance: Dark brown/black, light brown -> beige foam, disapears quickly into thin blondes on glass. Taste: Really good chili pepper taste, almost smoky - like the chilis were smoked before adding, some malt sweetness and chocolate flavors that are camoflaged a bit behind the pepper & chili taste/aroma. Finish: Nice Chili warmth - not to much, maybe some alcohol warmth (8,8%) Overall: I love this beer. Perfect beer for chili-lovers. The chili & pepper aromas and taste balances so greatly with the roasty & chocolate flavors. The base stout does a really great job with the chilis!

Huge pepper aroma going on here. Finishes super spicy with some bitterness. Spice overtakes some of more subtle elements of stout, but this makes for a well done spicy stout if that’s your thing. Tap at Snallygaster.

slowrunner77 (6088) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 10, 2014
"Really like the base, like serranos, so pretty excited here. What lacked in aroma did not in flavor. Intense pepper without covering the base beer or being TOO hot. Thick black pour and body. Heavily roasted with some twang. Loved the combo."

kappldav123 (5163) - GERMANY - SEP 3, 2014
Tap at CBC 2014. Beer in the glass deep black, nice head. Heavy malty, earthy aroma. Starts intense malty, quite dry, notes of pepper and chili, not too intense. Finish surprisingly well balanced. Nice!
