Sampled @ RBWG courtesy of Sparky27. Thanks Eric!!! This one might have done better had it not been beside Chipotle Speedway. Near coal pour produced a solid dark khaki head. Lots of cayenne, chili, smoke, roast, and chipotle...but too much. The base beer just doesn’t seem to be able to support the incredibly strong flavors. Either the pepper needs to be more subtle or the other flavors more robust.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep dark brown head. Opaque black body with strong carbonation. Roasty chocolatey aroma with smoky resiny notes. Dry-sweetish burnt chocolate and chili taste with smoky notes. Fizzy sharply hot mouthfeel. Light body. Dryish resiny burnt aftertaste with chocolatey chili notes. Not bad, but so hot and spicy the flavour is hidden in the background. (0.75l bottle, Ølbutikken, Copenhagen.)

Black with a brown head. Aroma is hard roasted malt, dark chocolate, peated smoke and chili. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Dry and bitter finish, where the chili really sets in and burns your throat. 080510

Black in color with a tan, frothy, bubbly head. Lacing holds very well on the side of the glass. Strong coffee and chocolate aromas. No hops pop out in the smell. Definite spicy kick hits the back of your throat instantly. Very smooth black coffee flavor with a chocolatey texture. A full-bodied beer that leaves your taste buds working overtime. Overall i think spice and a malty beer go very well together. This is the type of beer i am always looking for. YUMMY!!!!!

750 ml bottle into tulip. Pours midnight black with a large lacy dark tan head with awesome retention. Smells of campfire smoke, tobacco, leather, chipotle. Taste is bittersweet with a spicy finish. Spiciness lingers in the throat for a nice long time after the swallow. Carbonation is medium, mouthfeel is creamy, body is medium to full. AWESOME.

4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
750 ml. bottle- Pours pitch black with a nice creamy mocha tan head and spiderweb lacing, beautiful beer. The aroma is very chocolatey with a spiciness in the background, peppery. The flavor is peppery up front, followed by chocolate, then smoky peppers (chipotles) and wood, very interesting. There is a definite jalapeno burn, especially in the back of the throat, this is one of the most interesting beers I have had in a long time, very experimental. The body is thick like chocolate milk, carbonation is low, finish is long, and spicy. Overall I haven’t had a beer that I was blown away like this in a long time, a winner for sure, or to quote Charlie Sheen "Winning". Loved it.

Bottle. Pours a black body with a tan coffee head. Very spicy body immediately get pepper, chili, and roasted malt tones. Bery pepper y and a hint of peat with a huge warmth as it hits your throat. Bery slight malty sweetness with a large warmth, loads of pepper and solid heat warming to finish. Solid brew, but i’m not huge on big spiciness. Solid offering overall.
