A decent stout with a mild pepper finish. I am not usually a pepper beer drinker but this is an exception

Very mild, but the pepers, coca and that little hint of green chiles really evens out surprisingly well. Now the bad part is the lack of sweetness and more ABV, malt. But not that bad.

17 Nov 2014, can. black with no head. nose is sweet spices, chocolate, and faint peppers. full body and faintly fizzy. Peppers struck me up front but they quickly gave way to sweet spices, black malt, and maybe coconut. Decent for a mole stout.

Can from Bine & Vine. Pours "black" with a dark tan head. Aroma is very chile. Med body, almost. Flavor is dark malt, chocolate, and chile. Moderately warm chile. The burn is quite light compared to my expectations. It’s a fun drink, and well worth seeking out.

Can from Binny’s in Bloomingdale, IL. Very cool looking can, too. Very dark pour with pretty much no head. Aroma is cocoa and chilis. Taste is similar, albeit a touch bland. Decent heft to the palate. Okay.

Une cannette bue dans mon camp de chasse. Brune très foncée, à la limite noire. Col mousseux qui se retire très rapidement. Arômes de chocolat, de biscuit Graham, d’épices orientales, de chili et de piment fumé, de malts rôtis et de café. Intriguant! Sur les papilles, un constat plutôt semblable avec quelques petites différences. Croûte de biscuit Graham qui rappelle Warlock, chili et autres piments qui ne donnent que de très faibles sensations chaudes, mélasse et pointe de lactose qui laisse une impression surette. En bouche, un corps de moyenne densité avec un pétillement vif fait de bulles très fines et une texture très légèrement crémeuse qui pourrait passer dans une autre bouche comme étant aqueuse. En finale, chocolat noir et effets pimentés qui cherchent en vain à bien s’accrocher. Beaux parfums. Saveurs qui ne suivent pas vraiment. Impression en bouche à retravailler. Les bulles sont celles d’un soda. Finale qui manque de mordant. Une assez belle idée qui mérite d’être peaufinée.

On tap at SKA tasting room. Have had many times in a can. The nose is complex with roasted coffee, roasted chilies, cocoa and cumin. The can is more chocolatey while the tap version is chile froward (no heat). It's a thinner stout with a quick diminishing head.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2014 I like Ska brews to a degree. They have shown up before without enjoy by dates. Glad this can has a date on the bottom! This is prob my 7th diff Ska. First off, I see milk sugar listed in ingredients printed on the can in small font. I’m not a big lactose brew drinker, but it seems many milk stouts are using it now. No matter how I pour, it fizzles out in 20 seconds. It smells complex and strange, not like any chocolate stout or jalapeno ale I’ve ever had. It smells like a Mexican hot chocolate w jalapeno added. By the time I taste it, it is nearly flat with no head at all. The Anaheim and other peppers are subdued behind a bakers cocoa with a dry, flat, sweet finish. This is a fun brew to drink, because all chile brews are fun! Its an okay ale, but its more of a drinkable novelty. For peppers, I can remember many that are better than this and same for cocoa.

On tap, poured a deep dark brown hue w/ tan head. Huge chili pepper aroma. Initial flavor is moderate sweet w/ a light bitter finish. Tastes are chili, cinnamon, coca nibs, and squash. Medium bodied, watery mouthfeel and a moderate heat in the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can @ home. T. Hanks, Jake. Black pour with a thin, short lived khaki head. Smells mostly like chili peppers. A lot of earth and spice, some roast, and cocoa. A hint of vanilla and cinnamon. Flavor is fairly spicy, acidic, and roasty. Somewhat bitter, unfortunately. Meh. Stale coffee, dusty, and dried chilis.

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.
