Black with a large and frothy mocca coloured head. Aroma is roasty and raw with only slightly chili at first but opens up and mellows as it sits and warms a bit to reveal chocolate and a whole lot more chili. Some hops make themselves noticed in the taste, followed by chocolate in the middle before the chili onslaught begins. There are loads of chili, both flavour and heat. This stuff is hot for sure!

Bendrixian (1134) - Canadiana, Nova Scotia, CANADA - OCT 24, 2014
330ml bottle from LCBO. pours a jet black colour. Rich mocha/toffee aroma showing a hint of paprika spice. On the palate it drinks like a stout but has a certain chilli powdery spice and flavour profile. Sports a decent length and quite a good range of flavours this is a very interesting brew. Would love to try the barrel aged versions!

330 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours black with mocha head. Smells like rich coffee and bittersweet chocolate. Taste is really good, chocolate and coffee. Cocoa finish with a subtle but present chili spice. Well done.

Deep dark mahogany pour. Aromas of coffee, chocolate, smoke and roasted malts. The aromas flow into the taste. The flavor lingers with a bit of chilli heat. A very good beer!

Smells great, dark malts, chocolate sweetness a hint of spice. Beautiful appearance, thick rich chocolate colored head, otherwise completely black. Tastes delicious as well, upfront creamy rich dark malts, soy sauce and finishes with smoky chipotle peppers. A lingering spicyness on the back of the throat and a chocolate aftertaste. Creamy, thick bodied with an average carbonation. Great spicy beer.

Sublirony (18) - SINGAPORE - OCT 20, 2014
Glass. Pours beautiful jet black; good head and lacing. Full in the mouth; tastes like a stout initially--molasses, prunes, then the fire comes on the follow-through and finish. As others have said, the chili works very well: excellent balance. Delicious. Would've scored even better if it tasted more like a porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheJester (1918) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2014
330 mL bottle. Pours stout brown with as dark a head as I’ve ever seen. The head persists and laces nicely. A rare 5. Nothing particularly noteworthy about the aroma - it smells like a stout. But the use of the chipotle in the flavour is perfect - you get the heat, which balances the bitter roast beautifully, without the vegetal note you often get with this style. The heat also fills out the body. Very well done.

neuromatt (1169) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2014
330 mL bottle from the LCBO, served in a stem glass. Pours black with a large, fluffy light brown head that remains and leaves a small amount of lace. The nose has big notes of charred malts, chipotle, smoked malts and espresso, paired with just a touch of herbal hops. The flavour is moderately sweet up front with chocolate malty notes and touches of earth and herbal hops. A distinct spiciness enters in the middle and builds towards the finish, imparting a mild chill heat. In the background, roasted malts, chocolate and perhaps a touch of espresso continue to develop, along with soft herbal hops. The finish is long and roasty, with a mild spiciness. On the palate, it is full in body with a smooth, creamy texture and average carbonation. Overall, a nice stouty ale with a significant peppery accent. The pepper is a bit too much for my taste, and I’d be intrigued to try the base without the chipotle. 2014-10-14

chris__hartley (276) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 9, 2014
It pours deep dark mahogany and opaque; the head is mocha-coloured and mousse-like. The aroma has notes of: toffee, chocolate, wood-smoke, minerality (charred pepper skin). The taste is medium-lightly spicy, it is dry and with a slight bitterness; there are notes of: stewed peppers (vegetable notes), charred and smoked jalapenos (which really shine through in the taste), cocoa powder, and black pepper. The palate is meidum bodied, has light carbonation, has an oily texture, and a long finish. Overall, a very unique beer that isn’t a novelty - it’s genuinely interesting.
