4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Pours a dark rich black pour with a nice Java head, at Brass Tap with Audrie in Coral Springs. Nose is spivey and peppery . Taste is delightfully peppery but not over the top, with a backbone of rich malt. Smooth and velvety, and very drinkable. Finish is peppery with a long bittersweet cocoa ending. Nice !

Draft at Tap 42. Dark brown pour with a light brown head. Huge chili aromas. All kinds of heat from the chilis with robust dark roasted malt notes. Tasty, but not overly complex. Good body and mouthfeel.
