3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Pours cloudy and dark brown with a fleeting, khaki head. The aroma offers a luxuriant coupling of chocolate crème and vanilla. Full-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor presents dark, sweet chocolate and chili peppers. The chili heat kicks in big-time in the finish. A big hug of spicy warmth. Bottle courtesy of FlandersNed!

(draft @ HopCat - Grand Rapids, MI) Dark brown pour with a thick tan head. Huge chocolate, chili and oak notes. Flavor is a spice bomb. Lots of chocolate and chilis with a really good burn to it. Some light chocolate and vanilla notes smooth it out at the end. Incredible.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Hopcat. Pours black with a khaki head. Leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. Has some solid roasted malt notes on the nose. Has a fair amount of heat on the tongue from the chile but it pairs nicely with the stout. Finish lingers a bit but the heat doesn’t build unreasonably.

Great novelty beer on tap at Mad Mex Robinson. I love chile spiced beers but they usually leave me wanting more spice flavor. Not this bad boy. Aroma was a little weak. Milk chocolate and roasted malt. Pour was a nice enough deep dark brown/near black with a one finger tan head. Taste was intense. The chocolate and malt flavors were there for a few seconds before he intense pepper heat started we flaming the lips and throat. Mild carbonation. Spiciest beer I’ve ever tried.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pitch black pour with light tan head... Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, peppers... Flavor is overwhelmingly peppery, hard to taste anything else... Light roasted malts and bourbon backbone, peppery finish which seems to last forever... Went to far with it, disappointing

Spicier than I expected, but I’m digging it! Flavors of vanilla, dark chocolate, spicy peppers, toasted bread, bourbon, milk and wood. I know some of the beer snobs mock Dragon’s Milk for being a bit thin, but this is a great beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Dark chocolate, light coffee malt aroma with a hint of chilies. Black with thin tan head. Sweet dark chocolate malt and lightly bitter herbal flavor. Nice chile pepper flavor and burn in the finish - strong without being overwhelming. Very nice.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Almost black with a thin tan cap.
Light chocolate and smoky pepper aroma.
Taste is dark chocolate, roast, and a strong, but nicely tempered chile spice.
Tingly, clean chile heat.
A really nice peppered Imperial Stout.
