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.

On tap at Barley Brothers (Winnipeg). I didn't know anything about this beer going in, but it kind of blew me away. Lightly boozy nose, some chocolate, cinnamon and spice. Flavour was chocolate - but not too much - with some nice spiciness, notes of caramel and vanilla, and a full mouthfeel.

I thought this was outstanding. Aromas are cinnamon and pepper.. sweet vanilla. Yum. Flavors are sweet vanilla and a great cinnamon heat. Dark chocolate too. Awesome.

Bottle (355 ml). From dresden and Paul, thanks guys! Dark brown with a low beige head and little to no lacing. Aroma is of chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla and light spices. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet with chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla and a strong spicy/peppery finish. Medium body. Chalky mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation. Not really complex, but the cayenne pepper add something interested. I’m glad we split the bottle 3 way though.

Minderbinder (1754) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 26, 2013
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.

dreamflower (575) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 24, 2013
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 19, 2014 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.

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.
