UPDATED: FEB 12, 2011 Served in a tall glass at the Addison Saucer. Kind of surprising to see a stout served in the tall weizen glasses.
The beer pours a very dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is heavy on the chocolate with some chilis mixed in. A fairly unique aroma and quite enjoyable.
The flavor is similar. I get a lot of sweet chocolate with some roasted malt, spice from the chilis and some cream notes. I also get a little bit of coffee. No hops in the aroma, this is all about the malt.
Medium to thick, creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice, easy drinking sweet stout with a nice added twist of peppers. Great beer. thirdeye11 (6162) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 10, 2011
(draught at Flying Saucer Addison) jet black pour, thick very dark brown head and great glass coating. Nose of bakers chocolate, green chiles, cocoa, and some chocolate syrup and raisin bits. Taste is quite spicy, but very smooth an subtle at the same time. Loads of milk chocolaty goodness but peppery and tingly on the palate. green chile notes abound but the predominant linger is not spicy, but smooth chocolate. A really neat beer. Not sure I needed the "biggie" they served me though. Sammer (1119) - Plano, Texas, USA - FEB 9, 2011
On tap at The Holy Grail in Plano, TX. Black pour with an off white head. Aroma is slightly spicey. Taste is very smooth and creamy, with hints of pepper and dark fruit. Warm, smokey finish. Nice. kidmartinek (5007) - austin, Texas, USA - FEB 8, 2011
Dark black pour with a small tan head. Runny with low viscosity. The head disappears and the beer draws down clean. The aroma reminds me of cocoa and toasted malt. The flavor starts off chocolatey and has a good hop bite. The texture has varying amounts of burn though all very small, depending on how you drink it. Good stout beer with just the right amount of kick. User101024 (2) - - FEB 5, 2011 does not count
A big beer with a big nose, This pepper infused stout provides a fantastic coffee and chocolate nose that yields to a slightly sweet and bitter front end. This is followed by a strong bitter bite and a slight heat tingle that leaves you wanting another drink. The mouth feel of this beer is wonderful, with a slightly cola palate that gives way to a smooth creamy finish.

On tap at Petrol Station. Pours a dark brown with a small tan head that diminishes quickly to nothing. The aroma is a smokey malt and roast with chocolate. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet malt and cream vanilla with a nice spicy finish. Easy to drink, a very good sweet stout from (512).
