3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Jet black colour, dissipating beige head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malts, mocha, tobacco, light smoke. Flavour roasted malts, alcohol, light acidic, smoke and quite a bit of spicy heat. The chili pepper is mostly noticeable as some heat in the back of the throat rather than a distinct flavour. Finish is coffee and chili pepper.
Can imagine this beer to be nice next to spicy burritos

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Grape and Gourmet, VA Beach 12oz ($2): Pours black with a creamy beige head. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malts, and a bit of pepper. Taste is not as thick of spicy as would be expected, but the body is really nice and velvety. Taste is more traditional roasted malt and chocolate porter at the front and then it gets into the pepper aspect toward the finish. Some minor sweetness, which I guess is the fruit flavor they speak of, along with a hint of anise. Pretty good, but I was expecting quite a lot.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark, dark brown colored pour. Small ring of off-white bubbles. No lacing. Caramel and vanilla aroma. Taste is a bitter chocolate with hints of vanilla. Not really that spicy, but you can tell there are peppers in there after awhile in the throat. Decent, but not a wow beer. A little on the thin bodied side of things.
