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.

TheBeerGod (5350) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 21, 2012
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.

Ernest (6356) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy/fizzy, brown, fully diminishing. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is lightly malty (chocolate), with notes of detergent and other assorted cleaning products (Lysol, etc.), chile peppers, nutmeg/allspice, plastic (vinyl), shoe polish, pine needles, peppermint, etc. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, syrupy/watery texture, lively carbonation, light chile burn. Blech. Aroma is a combo of really weird off-notes and of course the vegetal peppers and some holiday spices. Very random and artificial smelling, doesn’t even smell like something you would eat/drink, it’s like something that wafts out of Yankee Candle Company 20 feet from the entrance. Pretty horrific stuff, quite honestly.

brokephibroke (293) - Mead, Colorado, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Can. Low carbonation. Nice spicy aroma: cinnamon, cloves and cocoa. Initial taste is a balance of roast malt and green veggie, sweetness and a bit of heat linger, would like to see the ABV up a couple of percent, otherwise a nice can to carry around Colorado.

ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Its light-medium brown head is quite airy, and only lives about 10-15 seconds before it fizzles away, leaving behind a completely headless, very dark brown colored beer with a lot of motionless matter in suspension. This is something you wouldn’t, obviously, notice if you drank it out of the can. On the nose, it speaks divinely of smooth, buttery chocolate with a slight kick of smokey, roasted chiles - with the spice of the chiles permeating your sinuses with each deep inhalation. In the mouth it’s a little more meaty, with much of its body seemingly coming from the chiles themselves. It has a moderate body (absent carbonation adds a dullness) , with a heft on the palate contributed solely by a dense combination of chocolate malt and chiles. The finish is clean, with only a hint of the flavor persisting. The dullness of the beer and an absence of any roasted bitterness, carbonation, or even a chile burn (that’s right, there’s practically  no burn to this) helps the beer wash down easy and fast and makes you crave the next sip almost immediately. It’s like candy in a can... if you like molé. Then again, how can you not like molé?

Can poured a clear dark brown nearly black with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of cinnamon, cocoa, chilies anbd light roastiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a warming finish. Flavors of cinnamon, cocoia, chilies, light roastiness and light vanilla with a smooth warming lingering cinnamon cocoa finish.
