On draft at Pinglehead. This is the one that surprised me. Pours a hazy porter brown with a tan head. Nose is some light roast, some mild chocolate, and some earthy peppers. Flavor is similar with roasted malts, some mild chocolate, and some earthy peppers that turn into a polite burn. Medium in body and a nicely adjusted beer. The peppers play well with the roasted notes and the chocolate and peppers.

Brown super frothy pour. Light chocolate and no chili on the aorma. Chocolate and slammin chili on the flavor. Nitro smooth carbonation with good body. A damn chili chili beer. Novel beer

Tap at Brewer’s Pizza for RBWG. Black pour, giant head. Nose is roasty chocolate aroma with muted chili pepper spice. Taste is bitter dark chocolate with the sharper peppers. Lots of complimentary flavors that go together quite well. Mouthfeel was really nice, silky. Much more drinkable than you expect.

creamy start, medium heat in the throat.. rather empty .. . its rank bad defending .. . mild roast .. . nothing all that interesting.. . how did a 10% beer turn to this? .. . medium heat, not necessarily bad, but a novelty at best .. . . i’m not one to complain..

On tap at the brewery RBWG. Black with a big tan head. Sweet malt aroma. HOT, HOT, HOT! Too hot to enjoy as a beer. Only for fire eaters. Great idea though.

jbruner (1983) - Athens, Georgia, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Pours an opaque brownish black with thin tan head and light lacing. Aroma is piney resinous hops, toasted dark barley, roasted malts, and a hint of peppery spice at the end. Taste is spicy dark chocolate with a roasty bitter ending. Spice is well balanced and not overbearing, pretty awesome!

GT2 (7875) - Carlsbad, California, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Tap at Brewer’s Pizza for RBWG. Pours a muddier brown with massive dark foam. Nose is dark cherries, Whoppers. Taste is silkier than the normal version, very tolerable chili pepper heat...no way overpowering. Just the right amount of spicy chocolate kick in the face. Really nice palate. A winner.

2/22/13. On tap during RBWG! Thanks, Pinglehead! This was one of my favorite beers of theirs already, and I really like this treatment! Rich black pour with a nice brown head like always. Rich coffee, chocolate, cocoa, and roast in the aroma with a hint at the peppers. The flavor is much the same but with a much bigger pepper kick there, and I dig it. I heard some people saying they couldn’t handle the burn, but they’re wussies!
