Can. Pours a deep brown, nearly black...rather viscous. Quick fading head. Aroma is spice, both sweet and chili. Taste is like a spicy gingerbread cookie...with chocolate chips. Nice balance between spice and sweet. Nice on a cool night.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had to ding the appearance because while this beer started out with a huge head it was almost immediately gone. Dark black with a few bubbles at the surface. Aroma is cinnamon, cocoa, peppers, pretty good. Flavor follows suit but is really not robust enough and feels like it has a watery aftertaste. Both Cocoa Mole from New Belgium and Mexican Chocolate Stout from Copper Kettle are better beers, probably due to the body being thicker.
Serving type: can

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer pours black with no head, and the aroma is strongly chocolate with slight hints of peppers. The taste of this beer is strongly of umami and lightly sweet, but the spice hits you a little after the initial taste. The palate of this beer combines a medium body, a slick yet thick texture, flat carbonation, and a long finish.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Bottle). Very spicy and peppery scent that would be intriguing if it not also had some unpleasant prickly and tangy aroma of urine. The taste is just as strange as the smell, peppery and prickly with touches of chili pepper and dry bitter cocoa. Also perceived as extremely carbonated and stronger than it is, which is due to heavy peppery taste. This beer feels like an incomplete idea!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Bottled. Dark ruby color, no head. Rum&cola-aroma, cinnamon, some roasted malts and molasses. Dark chocolate notes with sweet caramel malts and fruity chili. Slight chili warmth in the finish. Unpleasantly soda-like carbonation. Medium body.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 1/20
Can from wchesser, thanks Will. Aroma has notes of smoke, chile peppers, coffee and roasted malts. Very dark brown that sits black in the glass. No head and no lace. Flavor is medium sweet and lightly bitter. Palate is medium bodied and watery soft. Overall it achieved exactly what it set out to do. Only problem I have with it is I think itís disgusting. I will admit the aromas are complex and well blended but I donít know why anyone would want to drink something like this. Freaking gross!
