3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap a proof. Dark brown pour with big creamy off white head that stays. Nutty malt aroma. Nutty brown ale with a chile taste that lingers. Flavor is good but kind of straight forward and not complex. As it warms lots of chocolate comes to the palate.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
pours clear dark brown, red tint, with a low light beige head, little retention. hazelnuts and pecans, toasted ones, some caramel and tobacco, very nutty, chiles, shy chocolate notes - more in the malt bill, roasted vegetables. very hint of acidity. hint of sweetness. soft carbonation, light body - almost feels watery, lightly boozy, earthy and peppery-chili finish. good dosage of spice/nuts and all. it is a relatively complex brew but mainly due to its components - malt bill is rather poor but still somewhat supportive. o-k.

The aroma is sweet and chocolaty with toasted malt, peppers, and nuts. The appearance is dark brown with a small head. The taste is like the aroma with a sight bit of heat. The palate is smooth. Overall not great but very decent.

Minerally earthen aroma. Dark brown small ring head. A little sweet and a nice bite from the chilis. Its a little sweet. But the bite from :he chiliís makes it quite nice.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
The presentation definitely outlives the beer itself. 55į reveals somewhat integrated mix of exactly what the bottle lists on the nose. Taste is almost like chili licorice cola, plenty of layers for the weight, obvious chili spice which I love in food, and can do without in my glass. Itís as unique as it is uncoordinated. Going to have to put on the trooper face to finish this one.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hints of roasted cacao nibs. Brown with a vanishing head. A touch of sweet malt and mild spice. A little twinge of heat in the gullet. Not bad.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Dark brown
Aroma: Dark malts, maybe some spice
Taste: Fairly bland, with a subtle bitterness
Palate: Average carbonation, a bit flat even
Overall: Unable to discern any independent nut or spice characteristics. Ends up being a not so pleasant mash-up.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared at Chadís birthday. Darkish pour with a tan head. Little to no aroma. Taste is brown sugar and awkward chocolate.

I did not like this beer at all. The chileís and cinnamon donít mix well with the malt and itís left with a dry palate that just doesnít come together. Like someone put crappy hot sauce in my dark belgian ale. Gross.
