Bottle shared by Ryan - thanks! Dark brown pour with a minor head. Loads of chipotle pepper heat. Rich dark malts, wood, booze, maple sweetness.

Bottle from RyanFolty. Aroma of chocolate, maple, pepper. Taste is sweet with spicy finish. Nice maple notes come through in flavor. Slight prickle on the tongue but finish leaves a bright but pleasant aftertaste

Pours black with flat tan head. Aroma of bourbon, coffee, chocolate, dried fruit, muscovado. Taste is rich and sweet with a fiery boozy finish. Rich and creamy body with soft carbonation.

Sensoric. Pitch black with tiny, light brown head. Poor head retention and very poor lacing. Heavy light roasted malts aroma - mainly milk chocolate, roasted, woody, than quite noticeable smokiness from chipotle. Also some licorice, some light vanilla and light moderate bourbon notes, as well maple syrup. Taste is very sweet thru the whole of degustation with moderate chipotle peppers notes. Medium to full body, oily and sticky texture, finish is hot (chipotle), sweet, slightly roasty. In overall from the ingredients mentioned the chipotle profile is mostly noticeable, than cocoa , but bourbon and maple syrup are in really far end. This one is really drinkable and killing. What to say.... not really knocking down, impressive, neither the top I’ve drunken so far...

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2017 Draft, fresh keg. Very dark though hard to see in the moonlight. Some chipotle pepper on the tongue and almost too sweet from Maple.

I traded for this bottle (properly traded to much for it). Aroma is chipotle pepper, smoky notes, roast, but mostly peppers.

The flavor is burnt oak, mild roasted body with and explosive amounts of chipotle peppers. Not burning heat, but here in a huge way. I mean.... You better REALLY love chipotle. It also have a small smokey hint. The bourbon is even nearly over run. Yeaaaah.

Oily black appearance with a slight tan carbonation. Smell is vegetable, leather, and a wee bit o’ chocolate. Taste is super pepper-y. I also get notes of dark bitter chocolate. Finish is smooooooth though. THANK YOU, AirForceHops !

Thanks AFH for sharing this beer with me. Acquired in a trade.

S - All i smell is chocolate milk and peppers.

T - Ya know, it’s pretty good...oh damn, the pepper starts in the middle and lingers wow. painfully spicy. BCS is all present, maple syrup and spicy finish.

M - Think and oily as expected...stop the spice!

O - I almost traded for a keg of this. WTF.

Pours a thick black on tap with minimal head or lace, but oily blackness slips down the glass. Aroma of dark roast coffee, sweet vanilla, and big bourbon with the mildest hint of the pepper on the back end. Taste is the barrel up front, that mellows to coffee, chocolate, nuttiness, smoke, spice, and clean sweet boozy finish. Complex and intense. Insane its on tap.

Bottle, shared at Little Leeds Beer House. Dark, chestnut brown. Ring of tan. Nose has roasted peppers. Coconut. Vanilla. Milk chocolate. Some ground coffee. Taste is sweet and chocolatey, with a dry, roast pepper character. Smooth mouthfeel. Slick and oily. Spicy bitter finish.
