From notes. On tap at Odd Side on March 21. The pour is black with a consistent medium tan head and excellent lace because it was on nitro. The aroma reminds me of a cinnamon graham cracker. There is strong cinnamon and nutmeg characters with a nice chocolate on the back end. The flavor is eh. Te same graham cracker comes out but there is a strong pepper dominance on the back end. The mouth feel is creamy, good, but I just canít get past that pepper. There isnít much heat, but the flavor dominance Iím not fond of.

Bottle from Sean - thanks! Black pour with a huge tan head. Aroma is spice, chiles, light, dry roast, and some background sweetness. Taste is some chile heat with light chocolate and roast and slight bitterness. Lingering chile heat - nice! Thin, almost overcarbonated mouthfeel. Iím a big fan of chile heat in beer so I really enjoyed this beer.

Mini growler - Pours cola-colored with a thin light tan head. Nose is cinnamon, dark roast, and a little vanilla. Taste is lots of cinnamon and baking spice, chile heat comes through a good deal. Thinnish and well-carbonated. Like the low ABV--Iíd drink more of this.

This was a chocolate bomb. Milk chocolate aroma and some sweetness detected. Very dark color that looked thick with a small head. Smooth and creamy with a little below-average carbonation, but that works for this kind of beer. Chocolate hits first with a sense of cream. Some coffee and roasted notes as well. Good stuff and a typical desert beer.

Sweet chocolate aroma is an eye opener, on thick black body. The mouthfeel is a bit thin and the taste sweet, until the spices show up with the chiles in the finish.
