3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Color is slightly lighter than expected. More of a Coca Cola type color and mouthfeel. Spicing is apparent in the aroma. Didn’t get much chocolate in the taste but could taste what seems like powered peppers with little heat. Not was I was expecting but it did enjoy it.

Bottled 355ml@Beer Hunters
Dark brown, opaque color, no head. Perfumic spicey (anise, oregano) aroma. Medium-bodied. Chilli-pepper, herbal oregano, menthol, anise. Light coffee notes. Very weird but with all these spices (which I usually don’t like in beer) somewhat interesting.

Smells of chocolate mixed with V8. Luckily it does not have V8 flavor. Slick mouth feel. One pint is more than enough.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours brown with big, light brown head. Settles in minutes with minimal lacing. Aroma is pepper, particularly hatch, chili powder, spicy, chocolate, mild roasted malt, hot sauce. Flavor is sweet, mildly roasted, chocolate, with a roasted, cocoa, hatch chili finish. Significantly stronger chili tones than I recall, interesting, though the sweetness is somewhat cloying. Soft carbonation, medium body, and syrupy texture. For a vegetable beer it is good, as a stout it is far too sweet.

3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma - smells wonderful. Like cinnamon and chocolate.
Mouthfeel - slight malt and chocolate aftertaste. Doesn't linger.
Taste - says chocolate but seems slight. Not as robust as other chocolates but nice. More in the aftertaste and not while drinking
Appearance - dark. Not much head. Had this on tap.
Overall - not bad but not great. Creamy flavor of chocolate and slight slight spice. Smooth and sweet but lacking in something I can't put my finger on. Got on tap.
