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.

Pours a large, brown frothy head atop an opaque body. Nose of chocolate soya sauce mixed. Flavour really amps up with the Cheyenne heat, fun toasty chocolate front gets assaulted by hot peppers. Very appealing. Purchased at the brewery for around $8.

Awesome! Big aroma of chocolates and malts. Flavour is a spicy roasted malt and chocolate base over espresso and cayenne notes.

Aroma is sweet chocolate, cherry, toffee and molasses. Taste is deep almost syrup like taste. Mostly chocolate and stugar tastes. Slight cinnamon. Appearance is balck with a light brown head that retains fairly well. Bit too sweet, almost as if the flavors were added after brewing.

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.

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 (2693) - 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.

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.
