skmikeg (900) - Poway, California, USA - NOV 10, 2012
On tap at brewery. Pours a dark black with a small tan head. Aroma is of roasted malts, coco, chill pepper, some coffee, and some earthy herbal notes. Taste is spicy with a lot of earthy chili peppers, roasted malts, bakers coco, and some mild hop bitterness. Has a medium-full body with a pretty creamy mouthfeel and and a spicy lingering finish. Overall, a pretty tasty stout that makes good uses of Serrano Chili.

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.

"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 (4924) - 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!

Draft. Black pour with tan head. Strong chilli aromas, some chocolate ad roasted undertones. Chocolate plus chilli, not much else to it.

September 29th, 2012 - Through no fault of their own, I exchanged American currency for a sample of Green Flash’s Serrano Double Stout. No doubt pepper based beer connoisseurs have grand things to see about this beer, but I couldn’t find it. The smell is a curious medley of green bell pepper, freshly cooked jalapeños and cheap tobacco - in sum, a 7-11. And the taste is the same. I’m actually baffled. Between the flavors of cheesy jalapeño poppers and a slight smokiness, this is all the taste of those high school 7-11 slushes runs from so long ago, which is to say, disagreeable drinking.

bhensonb (11047) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours very dark brown/black with garnet glints. Large dark tan head. Aroma is quite chili. Nearly full bodied. Flavor is chocolate and chili. It seems somewhat earthy. Hot, but far from "Crime". Finishes rather dry, and delicious.

On tap at Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours dark brown with an attractive tan head and a treacle and chili aroma. There is a full-bodied dark molasses flavor with a sharp chili hit at the finish.
