Side Project Volume 23. Like a piñata bursting at the seams, Guano Loco "Chili Pepper Brownie Ale" explodes with flavor from a myriad of directions. Chocolatey sweetness melds brilliantly with spicy heat to make this beer a fiesta in your glass...Ole.

Bomber poured into a Terrapin snifter -- medium brown beer with half a finger of tan head. Aroma is sweet malt and vegetal. Flavor is a surprisingly light brown ale (for 8%) with biscuit, bread flavors that quickly seeps into chili flavors, a little heart and definitely some tingles in the back of the throat. Better than I remember this beer.

Bottle. Pours a clear brown with a thin light tan head. Aroma of chocolate, earthy malt, vegetal/peppery notes, herbal spices. Flavor of peppery heat, light chocolate malt, more peppery heat in the finish. Definitely on the fiery side, but there is a balance between the heat and chocolate undertones. At times hard to drink. 7/4/7/3/12 [3.3/5]

Bottle from Capone’s. An interesting chile and fruit meld. Not for everyone but certainly unique and quaffable.

Draft. Dark clear brown color, thin tan head with solid lacing. Pepper flesh pops right out in the aroma, on a roast background. Taste has cocoa, caramel, pepper flesh, but only a tiny tinge of heat at the finish. Light to medium body. Interesting.

Bottle. Interesting that only the review before mine mentions gusher, cause this fucker fountained all over my kitchen. That was not fun. 15 minutes of cleanup, and barely a glass of beer left in the bottle. Fuck. Actual pour is a deep murky mahogany, surprisingly little head, some lacing. Aroma is heavy on the chili peppers , kind of mole-esque with roasty chocolate noes as well. Flavor is medium sweet, light bitter, surprisingly little heat given all the chili aroma. Oh wait, the heat builds a bit over time, but never becomes overpowering. Medium light body. Surprisingly given the gusherness, does not taste infected. I am glad I did not let this one sit longer; it may have blown up in my refrigerator, and that would have been worse.

Where and how: bottle 650 ml
Aroma strong, not too shy about its peppers. Chili heat with chocolate support.
Appearance :
Top: be aware, this was actually gusher. Large tanned cap.
Base: dark brown.
Palate : medium bodied, rounded feel.
Taste: not as bold as aroma suggested. Good balance between chili’s and chocolate. Smooth mid with side chili heat. Hint of cinnamon and brown sugar,.
other notes nice finisher.

Bomber. Murky amber - brown pour with a wispy beige head. Big chili pepper aroma. Same on taste, but not too hot. Interesting for sure.

22 oz bottle. From a beer store in the US. Dark reddish brown colour with a small tan head. Chocolate, chili, bell pepper, fudge and mild hoppy bitterness in the aroma. The flavour is chili, pepper spices, mild bitterness, hops, sweet toasted malt, chocolate and cookies. Tasty and balanced. Me like! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
