crowderm (382) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Dark pour with a small tan head. Aroma of smoke, chocolate, and a hint of pepper. Flavor is far more subdued than I expected, but I was impressed with the balance of this brew, at least. A nice mix of chocolate, roasty bitterness and smoky chipotle. No real heat to speak of. Good brew, though I wouldn’t mind seeing a spiced up version in the future.

bartlebier (1760) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - AUG 18, 2014
(retrieved from 08/2013 Midwest jpg backlog). 12oz bottle bought & sampled in Milwaukee/WI Very mild and drinkable execution of a potentially wild recipe: dominant milk chocolate and mild caramel flavours, not getting all that much heat, nor smoke apart from a slight earthy edge that could be anything really and a prickly effervescence. Could tilt either way depending on mood, receptacle, atmospheric temperature, company, aging...

TXBadger (1398) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Pours a deep brown almost black with tan head. Smoke, pepper, cocoa, and coffee on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a little heat from the peppers. Pretty interesting.

revtork (10) - North Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Very balanced porter with an excellently smoky aftertaste. This is a great dessert beer and it is a good example of the quality of the entire Brewers Gone Wild series.

Gription79 (2264) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle, thanks to clownoisseur. The aroma is caramel maltiness, soft smoke. The flavor is chocolate, caramel sweetness, malty, hint its smoke. I do not get anything in the way of spicy peppers. Not bad.

monkeychugg55 (877) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Year old bottle. Brown pour, black body with a small ring of tan head. The aroma is stout-like...heavy roast, chocolate. As it warms it releases some smoke and chili pepper notes. There is also a touch of fig, but I think that might be attributed to oxidation. The flavor has all the same elements. It starts out rich and roasty, then the smoke flavor builds, and finally, it finishes more abrupt than expected with a nice lingering pepper flavor and heat. Full, rich mouthfeel, soft carbonation, and great flavor.

kkleu357 (299) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Pours very dark black, almost no head. Has a chocolaty chili smell. Nice robust flavor. Taste of smoked chocolate coffee. Not any spice from the chipolte, just smokeyness. Wish it didn’t have a twist top. This is a nice beer and should be better sealed.

Maltser85 (273) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - OCT 7, 2013
The beer pours black as night with a dark mocha one finger head. Small tight bubbles. The aroma is smoke forward. However there is a very present dark chocolate smell. The chocolate almost smells bitter. Definite hints of roast on the aroma. Mild carbonation on the front of the tongue. Hit with the smoke right away. Moves thinly across the palate. Maybe a hint of dark fruit mixed with a hop bitterness. That rolls into a decent dark bitter chocolate finish that beckons another sip. Maybe a slight hint of the pepper on the finish. Alright overall, body could have been bigger. No hint of the alcohol.

pete4999 (1055) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Bottle, as pictured. Dark brown opaque pour. Smells sweet with some spices - chocolate, cinnamon, clove. Taste is similar with a little tiny bit of peppery heat in the finish. Not at all spicy, but you can feel the pepper. Smooth mouthfeel, nice beer.

AmEricanbrew (5850) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Dark brown color with tan head. Nice chocolate, smoked meat, dark roast, chili pepper aromas. Smooth medium body. Chocolate, smokey, dark roast flavors with earthy dirt, and mild chili peppers---very good

jczella (1) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 1, 2013 does not count
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2013 Nose is common porter sweet and malty. Dark rich chocolate with tan foamy head. Tast is best with toasty smokey malts with reliable pepper heat on finish with each sip. Very well established. Palate is soft. Overall pretty great, bought another pack strait away.
