Bottle 12oz. Pours dark brown with red reflects. Low beige head. Good lacing. Aroma is of vanilla, roasted malt, chocolate. Taste is of vanilla, hot spices, peppers (very intense and overbold). Palate: Medium body. Hot peppers ruin it all. Overall: Too hot. That pepper is really too bold and out of place here. It’s a shame, because the aroma was enticing. We are talking drain pour.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2014 Bottle shared with northropfrye. Deep chocolate aroma. Fluffy head. Chocolate coloured body and pretty good chocolate taste with a pleasant burning sensation at the end. Definitely hot chocolate. Re-Rate on tap at Barley Bros. Like it better on tap than I did before.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2016 Thanks dresden for this one. Dark brown body with brown head, some lacing. Lovely cocoa aroma, vanilla. Taste is semi-sweet, a touch of hot chilli on the palate, which I just read was part of the deScription. Good, because you can taste it, though subtle. Cool beer. Re-rate on tap at barley bros. cinnamon taste like a nice warm cookie with a touch of heat in the aftertaste. Nice upped the rating by one. Another re-rate. Upped the aroma one point

Dark black pour with a little bit of tan head that hits the bricks real quick. Lots of chocolate on the nose, smells like a gulp of sugar. Well that was surprising..the taste is a hint of everything at first little bit of chocolate, bit of sweetness but it is quickly overtaken by the spice, overall not bad, not overly complex but a worthwhile sipper.

Pours an opaque black with a big but short lasting tan head that amounts to a thin ring. Aroma is sweet, chocolate, vanilla, some roasted malts and a touch of spice underneath. Flavour is sweet chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla, a mild bitterness, then slowly the cayenne pepper hits, it warms all the way down and adds a perfect little kick to it. Theres no alcohol noticeable on this for a 7.5 beer.

Pours a dark inky opaque black with a small frothy beige head that sits on top. Aroma is sweet vanilla, chocolate/ mocha like with a hint of roasted malts. Taste is a sweet chocolate mocha latte with a nice roasted malt bitter on the finish that ever so slowly turns into a nice warming/gentle burning from the cayenne. Not overwhelming which makes it work perfect and the fact that this one in 7.5 percent makes it excellently balanced.

dresden (1460) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - APR 1, 2013
Pours cola black, quite a bit of bubbly carbonation with a short tan head. Chocolate and coffee aroma with a light spice. Taste is fudge and brownie with some vanilla, finishes with a scratchy chili heat. A bit thin on the body and more carbed than I might prefer but still delicious. Really interesting beer.

Thanks to Reimer for this. Pours an inky dark brown with a moderate brown head. Aroma is chocolate and mocha coffee. Taste is loads of chocolate, small toasted malts with the sweetness coming off of it. Slow warming from the pepper but it isn’t prevalent which is nice.

[4582-20120704] Bottle. Roasted coffee malt aroma. Black body with a long-lasting giant foamy tan head. Roasted chocolate coffee grounds flavour follows up quickly with a hot and tangy wood fruit finish. Full body has quite a spicy kick which builds up over sips. Really interesting but I have no desire to have more than a sample at a time. (6/4/7/3/15) 3.5
