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?

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.

Beautiful black body with a thin tan head. Wonderfully inviting aroma of chocolate and spice. The palate is a bit thin, but very smooth. The flavor is sweet and chocolately up front, and that fades to a spicy finish. There's a bit of a hot pepper aftertaste. Wow. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clearish black with no head after about 5 seconds. Quite a nice aroma of smokey chocolate, a slight peppery chili vegetal heat, and slightly burnt toast. Flavor is nice and smooth with very fine carbonation and a balanced body. Flavor starts with some bittersweet dark chocolate, toast, caramel, and roasted chilis that lie kinda quiet and just accent the beer without dominating the sweetness. Slight cinnamon tone throughout. Found this quite lovely.

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.

aroma is initially dead metallic pushing forward to unsweetened bakers cocoa nibs, good roast, light pseudo smoke. hints of raspberry and other framboizen qualities. appearance is cola with beginnings of great head, oxygenated tanned dish soap bubbles that disperse very quickly leaving almost no legs and only central nucleation sans island. flavor is sweetened roast cut with tinge of smoke, fruity tartness brought by more raspberry. cocoa comes next now sweeter then as presented in nose, chilies are last and long lasting at that, wonderful smoke and intermittent hits of burn that just present enough to create salivation. amazing palate sizzles long lasting and lingers long and strong.

12 oz can from Evergreen Discount. Black with a small head that dissipates to nothing. Aroma and flavor of roasted malts, chocolate, spices, hot peppers and light vanilla. Medium body, a little thin with a sweet, spicy finish. My new favorite SKA beer.

Can. Pours black with tan head. Aroma has slight pepper, dark roast, cocoa and a faint touch of cinnamon. Flavor is very much the same. Medium mouthfeel with medium-high carbonation....Overall, good stuff!
