355mL can. $4. Pours darker, clear cola near black. Larger latte head formation with surprisingly weak retention dwindling to practically nothing in under a minute. Nose is suddy detergent, hints of tar and ash. Hints of smoked meat. Taste is bitter soil, ash, watery body. Weak palate.

Tell me in a sentence, who you are?
Nobody, I’m nobody. I’m a tramp, a bum, a hobo. I’m a boxcar and a jug of wine - and a straight razor if you get too close to me

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2013 Almost black with a light brown head. Aroma of smoked chili peppers, anise, chocolate, and funky fruity yeast notes. Taste is woody with a little chocolate and full of chili pepper flavor without really being spicy. Medium bodied, lightly carbonated, and a touch dry. Everything about this is kind of mild, but there’s really no other complaint.

tan head that lingers. aroma of tart yeast, roasts, pepper and woody vegetation. Starts with flavor of coffee than goes into a subtle heat and finishes a tart lactic sour taste and chocolate aftertaste. Effervescent and light on the palate for a beer of it’s class definitely reminiscent of the Belgian Stout style. It’s much taster than other Belgian Stouts I’ve had. The spices and chocolate really help flesh out the flavor spectrum that exists between tart yeastiness and dark malt.

12 ounce can. Pours a deep jet black color with a small beige head. A sweet nose of chocolate and some pepper. A nice flavor: some stout base here with roast and chocolate, light peppers, not really hot, vanilla, cinnamon, almost combines to taste a bit like pumpkin. Quite nice.

A fine seasonable beer, one that competes well with their Coconut Porter. Normally I am not a fan of adding all manner of extra nonsense to beer, but I may have to give up this fight. A Maui beer brewed in the Belgian style with a Mayan twist.; just about as convoluted as ever, but tasty.
