4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2016 Bottle- This is an incredibly complex beer. Brewed with chocolate, cassava root, and two types of peppers, all of which are present in different ways throughout each sip. The chocolate and cassava bring a mild undertone to the sharper notes of poblano and serrano.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I’ve got nothing to compare this to. I taste the peppers, but it’s not to spicy. The sweetness from the chocolate and vanilla are also there. Try it if you get a chance.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle... Zwanze Day 2014… Pours mostly clear and Longhorn-orange with a brief, off-white head. Full-bodied and fatty with trace carbonation. The aroma and flavor are twins. Interesting and enjoyable, but all over the place - vanilla, chocolate crème and earthy soil. Finishes acrid and lightly tangy. An odd bird, this one, but I really enjoyed it.

750 ml bottle shared by voodoofish65usf. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have sweet caramel malt, chocolate, vanilla, mild spicy peppers, some berry notes, smooth, no alcohol at all which at 11% could hit you fast, softer at the finish, good, not great.
