3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On cask a few Fridays ago. Dark brown in color with a tan head. Aroma of cocoa, chile, roasted malt, apple and fruit. Flavor had a slight coffee presence, cocoa, peppers, bread. Faifly try. Interesting beer and I thought it was pretty solid.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2009 Sample from Cask. Dark brown with nice tan head. Nice chocolate background with well spiced pepper that comes to the front. Reminds me of the pepper spiced Mexican hot cocao. Not over spiced, just right. Different and well worth the taste.

got the first sample from the cask as they opened it...
Black pour with a frothy white head, this beer has a nice chocolate/poblano aroma. The body is fairly thin and the taste is subdued. I guess I was hoping for some more body to this one.
