3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ WWT IV, courtesy of me, thnx to bytemesis for sending me this. Pours a dark brown beer with a medium sized, off white head on top. Aroma is slight roasty, peppery, slight smokey. Flavor is mildly sweet with a very mild pepper sensation in the back end. The base beer is a bit faded by the peppers, but unfortunately the peppers are very mild as well. Still decent, but expected much better.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ WWT IV. Clear dark amber color, average sized off-white head. Smell and taste malts, pretty sharp peppers but I have to say I really can’t stand hot and spicy stuff, some leaves. Burning hot peppers in the finish, too much for me.

Pours slightly translucent dark brown body with reddish hues. Thin light tan head. Roasted malt and cocoa aroma with a touch of smoke. Taste is bitter chocolate, some burned coffee. Charred oak and a hint of tobacco. Dry finish; the pepper really comes through on the back end. Heat is not overpowering, but enough to take notice. Nice addition of spiciness. Enjoyable with good complexity.
