3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A big brew here, shared by the guys on the epic brew bus! Pours a dark brown hue with a medium white head. A big coffee nose with some roast. The flavor is mostly sweet roasted coffee, pulls out a bit of sourness, some light vegtal pepper heat, a bit of a thin palate. Quite nice. Very woody or earthy.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a pitch black color with a small mocha colored head. Aroma is lots of coffee, slight tingling spice from the chilies, subtle smoke, roasted malt, burnt notes, dark chocolate, dark fruits and dark caramel. The flavor follows the nose and as you drink it the more chili spice you get, but lots of coffee is dominant, roasted malt, burnt notes, subtle smoke, dark chocolate and caramel and dark fruits. The body is on the lighter side of full with a creamy mouth feel, with very light carbonation. Overall a pretty nice Interpretation of the Beer Geek Brunch Weasel, but I prefer the original.
