Pour from a bottle is a nice black with a light mocha head. I definetly get the coffee and chocolate aroma then a little chillies at the end. Taste is bitter from the cacao and coffee but has a smoothness to it from the vanilla. It leaves a bitter and dry after taste with a little bite from the chillies.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2014 American Craft Beer Week! On tap at World of Beer SMU. Poured an opaque black with a khaki head. Taste of coffee, vanilla, with a peppery bitter finish. High carb, thick body. Overall, a little too much coffee and chili pepper lingering. I highly applaud them for the complexity, just not my fav flavors.

Lukasmh (48) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 13, 2014
Tap at cbc14. Pours black with small brown head that lasts long time. Aroma is a lot of chocolate and cocoa, some smoke underneath and resins + dark fruits. Taste is chocolate. Bitter dry dark chocolate. Coffee notes and then the chili comes warming the tongue. Finish is quite dry. Makes a good floater!

Silphium (3160) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 12, 2014
Bottle shared by badnewsbeers. Murky brown-black body, thin tight light brown head. Huge, rich chocolate nose with roast, a touch of coffee, and hints of peppers. Also vanilla. Body mostly chocolate wafers and roast, also woody vanilla and pepper heat that lends an interesting fruity complexity that becomes more prominent as the beer warms. Very good but not world-class.

Bourban, black coffee and chili peppers. Not my cup of tea, i mean, beer. Yucky aftertaste.

markextrae (854) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2014
shared bottle, orange wax. there was a lot of rust on the cap, with a lot of a brown thick chocolate or yeast on the inside. I was a bit afraid it was infected. there was no date on the bottle? dont know if it was old. but its not worth to age it. poured dark murky black with a mocha head. smell of cacao powder, sweet milk chocolate, coffe beans, vanilla, just a very small hint of the pepper. caramel, vanilla, creamy. the alcohol is very well hidden.

Bottle thanks to Brandon enjoyed along side the Pirate. Pour is deeper black Than Pirate with small tan head. Aroma and flavor loaded with cocoa, spice, light fruity peppers, and faint coffee. Very rich with cocoa for days. Nice.
