3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz Can. The pour was a murky dark brown with a small (less than 1 finger) fizzy light brown head that was fully diminishing and had no lacing at all.
The aroma was of a roasted malt and a leathery doughy yeast with notes of dark roasted coffee, dark chocolate, molasses and a mild hint of chilis.
The taste was much like the aroma, lightly sweet and a tad malty with a touch of chocolate and molasses early on and then becoming very lightly bitter with a shot of coffee and a hard to notice hint of the chili peppers towards the finish. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow, with a mildly bitter mocha coffee taste and a super light peppery feel at the very end.
Mouthfeel was medium in body with a thin watery texture and an almost mild carbonation.
Overall this brew was not what I expected from a Chili Stout. I am always leary about peppery beers, but this one was very tasty with just a light peppery presence. I can see myself having this again...

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Black pour with no head. Cinnamon dominates the aroma. Flavor is full of cinnamon, chocolate and spice. Mouth is little light, but the taste is great. Not overly sweet. The pepper taste is kind of vegetal, but it doesn’t ruin it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a silky dark brown, almost black. The aroma is awesome of roasted malts, cinnamon and some chiles. Taste is bubbly up front with some sweet spices and a warming heat at the back of the throat. Not overly complicated and that is a good thing. Flavors are there and pretty balanced for the style.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle) Black colour with quickly disappearing, foamy head. Malty, spicy nose with notes of black coffee, cocoa, dark chocolate, chilli, ginger, dark fruit and dark chocolate. Malty, spicy taste with cocoa, black coffee, ashes, liquorice, ginger, chilli and a spicy finish with a balanced roasty bitterness. Medium body, with a slight sweetness. Quite sharp carbonation. Strange beer, behaves and tastes like a soft drink with chilli, ginger and cocoa. Lots of flavours, but quite unbalanced and a bit artificial. Weird, hardly and success, but still quite drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a 12oz can I got in a trade, thanks Justin. Aroma is ginger, coffee, and caramel. Flavors are chile peppers, ginger, coffee, and roasty chocolate. Strange beer, the peppers get a lot more prevalent as you drink more. Flavorful but couldn’t drink a ton of this.
