This beer was a big surprise. BIG Surprise. Pours a medium stout brown with a tan head. Nose is earthy peppers, some roasted malts, and cocoa with chocolate, and earthy spices. Flavor is earthy peppers right in the front with roast, cocoa, chocolate, and spices. Medium in body and lingering earthy spices in the finish. At 5.5% if this was around me, I would drink the hell out of this beer. Top-notch.

Enjoyed on tap at Rockwell’s in Chicago, IL while waiting to pick up food. Very interesting and delicious. Appearance is pitch black, moderate thickness with a thin off white head. Aroma of cocoa, cinnamon, spices, and chocolate. Taste is rich with cocoa nibs and has a very very light touch of spice from the peppers. Great stuff, hope to have again.

Can. Poured a pitch black color with a smaller tan head. Beer did leave plenty of lacing on the glass as it went. Aroma was milk chocolate, some funk and peppers. Initial flavor was that of a stout. Roasted malts, chocolate, coffee. Finishes with the peppers. Light burn. Interesting beer.

12oz can. Poured pitch black. The aroma is pretty full and pulsing chili pepper and then with some modest malts in the background. The taste is much the same with solid chili pepperness and modest chili pepper heat. I can taste the skin of these here chili peppers. It tastes like they’re the green ones. It leaves a nice little peppery burn into the after taste. I liked it.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2013 I don’t know if they’ve tweaked the recipe or it’s better on tap or what but this is much better than the already good can I had last year. Aroma of cinnamon and chilis. Tastes like molé. Delish!

Pours black with a reddish hue aroma is roasty malts, mild coffe and chocolate cocoa powder, vegetal green aromas too taste is chocolate up front, then cinnamon and faint faint hints of chili...the finish is like a dark roast coffee i really like this sweet and spicy notes go well together if i have to be a critic i would say i was hoping for more heat anyway..still a good one eithher way

Can: Pours a black with a small tan head that quickly disappears. The aroma is sweet with a bit of chocolate and hints of the chilies. I think it’s the Anchos that come through the most. The taste is sweet, almost a sweet (milk) stout. The cocoa is strong but the chilies are subdued. I would like to see a little more heat to balance out the sweetness. The mouthfeel is about perfect, a lite to medium feel. Overall I like this beer and a little more chili would make it great.

Can. Black pour with a tall, brown head. Aroma is cocoa, peppers, dark chocolate and roasted malt. Taste is cinnamon, peppers, dark chocolate, roasted malt and spices. Body is medium with a soft, creamy carbonation and a moderate heat from the peppers. Finishes with more peppery notes, dark chocolate, roasted malt, cinnamon notes, cocoa and spices.

Pours dark brown black with beige head. The aroma is big on cocoa powder and chili pepper with some chalky roasted notes under it. The flavor is similar with a sweet grain backing for a robust cocoa with a veggie based chili flavor very bold as well. Smooth sweet grains make it very palatable and easy to drink, overall a smooth beer, robust but not a slap on the face. Solid overall and great by style.
