Our American strong ale collaboration with Eddy from Ale Yeah!, pumped through our Randal with toasted organic cocoa nibs and Serrano chilis. It picked up all of the flavor without having much of the heat; served through our old English beer engine.

Growler from ale yeah. Pretty tasty drunk. Smooth with a nice roasty malt and cocoa flavor. Finish has a touch of pepper and grass. Aroma is clean and you can get a sense of the roastiness about to come.

On tap at the brewpub. Dark brown pour with a kaki head. Mild chili aromas. Plenty of chili presence up front that lead to the Mexican chocolates and dark roasted malts. Good body and mouthfeel.

Nice toasty malt I’d backed up by pepper fruit, but doesn’t have an unpleasant heat in finish. Aggressive beer.

Earlier rate referred to this beer as a kitchen sink brew. Apropos. Pours darkest brown with nice tan head. Scent is spice, chocolate, coffee, and caramel. Flavor is sweet with a spicy bite. Thick. Draft - Wrecking Bar, Atlanta, GA

Definitely a kitchen sink brew, somewhat searching for an identity. Pour is burnt umber with small mocha head. Aroma is mostly chocolate and vegetal chile notes with an undercurrent of pithy hops. Taste is quite layered with chocolate on top of slight bitterness on tip of warming chile heat on top of caramel malt. Finish is long and war alcohol definitely prevalent. Overall an interesting an fun beer. It perhaps trying to do too much all at once. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap in a flight from Ale Yeah! Pours dark brown, with a small, tan head. The aroma is caramel, cinnamon, green chilies, and some light milk chocolate. Very sweet, boozy, and light, chalky bitterness. The chili spiciness is mild, but leaves a pleasant warmness in the finish. Heavy body, chalky, and sticky. Overall, this is a thick, flavorful beer. The chilies add a nice veggie flavor and good spiciness, without being overbearing. Very nice!

Brown pour with creamy tan head and lace. Aroma of coffee, abv, chili’s, and resin. Flavor is brown sugar, chili’s, abv, and a nice resiny bitter. Smooth carbonation on a medium bodied beer.

Draft. This was the winner for me this night. Pours dark black with thin beige head. Taste had chilis in the forefront and in the finish, but they were not overwhelming. Cocoa and a splash of vanilla, with a medium sweetness, spice, roasted malts. Really, really nice.

Cask at the source. Completely black color, fluffy brown head with good retention and solid lacing - a beautiful beer. Aroma of milk chocolate with a tiny edge of pepper. Taste is cocoa powder, coffee, vanilla, nutmeg and just a touch of subtle chilis at the finish. Eminently drinkable, which makes it a bit dangerous.
