12 oz. bottle poured at my brother’s in Methuen, MA. Pours a dark brown, almost black with a brownish head. Smells slightly of chocolate and spices. Definitely a touch of cinnamon. I was disappointed with this beer; the chile taste didn’t work for me although the finish was more typical of a stout. For me it was barely drinkable. Too bad...I was really excited to try this.

Nose is malt, chocolate, roasted coffee, some sweetness, mocha, some other muddley stuff.
Palate is more roasty, chocolate coffee stuff with mocha and some light underlying spices.
Mouthfeel is smooth, light, velvety bits with some light oxidation on the end. Light carbonation.
Pours a mall brown head atop a black body. Nose is alcoholic and boozy. Flavour is mildly spiced, roasted malt, cocoa and vanilla. Tasty. Purchased at Metro Liquors University Heights. lupegilb (1) - burbank, California, USA - JUN 11, 2015 does not count
Random bottle pick up. Coffee/chocolate aroma. The anchos go really well with the chocolate, cinnamon, and vanilla. Not bad for the ABV. Overall pleasantly surprised for how random of a find this is. solidfunk (9446) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 9, 2015
Better than the unidragon and almost as good as the undead. Creamy consistency. Good balance. Roast, coffee and dark chocolate in equal proportions. Lots of flavor here. Tap at Churchkey. MadRobin (2988) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - JUN 3, 2015
On tap at Gilly's Craft Beer & Fine Wine in Rockville, MD.
Opaque, black-brown with a thin brown head and a fairly full, but thin, layer of lacing.
Aroma of dark chocolate nibs, roasted malt, berries, molasses and a anchos.
Taste of chocolate nibs, roasted malt, mild jalapeños and bittersweet chocolate.
Medium body and medium/low carbonization.
A fine imperial stout with just enough hot pepper taste a add interest rates without playing a leading role.

Bottle from Jane?s Beer Store, Mountain View. Big chocolate roasty aroma. Huge dark fruit and molasses flavour. Less spice than expected. Bitter finish.
