3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared 12 oz bottle with Sherm1016....thanks! Pours dark brown with thin tan head...fades quickly. The head fades quickly but the powerful taste does not. The peppers do not dominate but rather add to the flavor....but it is still hot! It is the PALATE where this beer shines....it definitely is a warm feeling on the tongue and roof of my mouth. Great in the right place and time...but not for that "right after mowing the lawn on a hot day" type of event.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ WWT IV, small sample. Slight hazy light brown color, short frothy head. Aroma has bit light toffee notes, bell pepper and chipotle, slight smoked. Bit sweet in taste, slight roast. Soft peppery finish. Base beer hardly recognizable and seems to be quite thin, which is not what I remember of it.

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.

Bottle at WWT tasting. Dark reddish brown with small off white head. Smoke, old coffee, some moldy cocoa beans, chili burn in the finish. Medium bodied. I’m not a big fan of smoked beers and this is no exception.

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.
