mcberko (6568) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 17, 2013
750mL bottle, pours jet black with a small tan / light brown head. Aroma brings out complex coffee notes, chipotle peppers, and a touch of smoke. Flavour is intensely complex and rich, full of rich, complex coffee, moderate chipotle, and a little smoke. Silky, oily mouthfeel, dominated by the coffee and only accentuated by the chipotle a little bit. Wonderful blend of flavours, and a soft, silky palate. Wonderful.

pintbypint (2613) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 29, 2013
Froma 750ml brown bottle. Jet black pour, thin layer of beige head on top but not much else. Nose has rich chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is same with thick dark chocolate malts and medium roasted malts and dark coffee. Pepper heat comes out in the throat. Medium to full bodied, mild carbonation. A nice spicy Impy.

Ferris (4342) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 28, 2013
Bottle - Crazy espresso. Jet black no head. Espresso all the way through with a chilli finish. Nice chilli beer, but the value isn’t there.

Pyrmir (3369) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 26, 2013
Bottle. Black with foamy dark brown head. Aroma and taste is smokey, chipotle, roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee grinds and vanilla. Creamy and full, gives a bit of a roasted impression. Nice

Garlic_of_Doom (471) - SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2013
Imperial Stout rating #50, yay! Bottle, 2012 Pours almost black with some red/brown hues and a small brown ring clinging to the glass. Aroma has coffee, heavily roasted (almost burnt) malt, chili, subtle smoke, some dark fruit note and slight cocoa powder. Taste has tobacco/cigar, almost burnt malt, dry chocolate, coffee and smokey chili. Full bodied, low carbonation, smooth mouth feel. After taste is chocolatey dry with a lingering heat that grows with each sip.
Well balanced chili stout, really like the dryness.

SPDickerman (959) - Texas, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Pours pitch black with a small tan ring. Smells strongly of coffee. Taste is coffee, coffee, and coffee with a little bit of smoke. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and very soft mouth-carbonation, Jester King/Mikkeller Weasel Rodeo finishes with a subtle booziness.

GT2 (8464) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUL 10, 2013
750mL thanks to djd07. Pours fully ink, opaque, but no carbonation to speak of. Small nucleation points. Nose is getting to that really unfortunate Danish stout nose of tar, oxidation/red apple, soy sauce. Savory but much too salty. Taste brings some modest chili pepper heat that is nice but there is no palate to create this beer. Instead the mouthfeel is like dead silt, chalky yeast in suspension with tar and soy sauce. Doesn’t come together as a beer unfortunately. Disappointing.

DuffMan (6800) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 7, 2013
Bottle, shared by Ian. Lustrous very dark brown pour with a thick brown head. Rich coffee aroma with underlying burn malts and vegetal undertones. Coffee-centered palate, rich and natural without becoming acrid, with some saliva-inducing fruit acids, a hint of meaty smoke, and a perfect chilli heat waaayyy at the back of the throat that is a welcome finish. So drinkable and delicious.

Had a taster at the phillybeerscene bottle share. My god. Between this, Mexas Ranger, Mexican Cake and Hunapu, we had some great chili pepper beers! Aroma is mocha coffee with sweet vanilla and chili notes. Pours blackety black black with no head and faint beige lacing. Taste is incredible with a dark chocolate blending nicely with coffee and chillies. A little smokier tasting which made for a great chipotle finish. I’m actually not sure if I’d like the bourbon version but time will tell.

Thanks to Riemer for this. Man this thing is a monster. Pours ink black with a brown top. Aroma is coffee, roasted malts and hot peppers. Taste is roasted malts, coffee notes and then on comes the chili peppers. Hotness just grows on you as you drink more. Glad I shared this one as I may have imploded with a bottle to myself.
