3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at Lagunitas Tap Room. Pour is cloudy brown with no head. Nose is cocoa espresso and spice. Notes of chocolate malt and coffee fade as pepper dominates. And keeps dominating. This is beer’s version of an atomic buffalo wing. Interesting but not a keeper, the pepper presents better in the IPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Opaque dark brown with no head. Strong chocolate coffee and pepper aroma and taste with a he’ll of a lot of habanero fire on the back end. Boy howdy!
