Sampled at RBWG Tampa. Thanks to whoever shared this! Deep amber pour with a small head. Peppered toast. Light honeyed peach. Syrup and toasted grain. Flavor has a bit of peppery earthy hoppiness. Some sweet cookie dough and croissant. Decent balance. Somewhat oily. Full body. OK.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2016 Bottle- This is an incredibly complex beer. Brewed with chocolate, cassava root, and two types of peppers, all of which are present in different ways throughout each sip. The chocolate and cassava bring a mild undertone to the sharper notes of poblano and serrano.

750 ml bottle from Homer321. Nose is roasted peppers, raisins, vanilla, and a hint of toffee. Murky brown with a medium lightly lacing beige head. Flavor is malty and fruity similar to a Belgian with only a minor amount of heat although the pepper flavors are nicely presented.

Tap at brewery. Pours a dark reddy amber with an off white head. Sweet caramel aroma. Orange, lemon, toffee, dark fruit... A touch too sweet but nice enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Homer. Pours clear hazel, medium beige head that mostly dissipates leaving nice residual and lacing. Aroma is definintely chili pepper, chocolate, dark sugars and vanilla. Flavor is light plus sweet, light bitter, vanilla foward -- holy hell the vanilla -- chili pepper provide some flavor but only a hint of heat on the finish. Caramel and more vanilla. Vanilla. Vanilla. Medium body, vanilla, a bit of burn.

Travlr (25854) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle at RBWG 2015 in Tampa. Hazy golden amber color, white head. Aroma of vanilla, roast, pepper flesh. Taste starts sweet, caramel and toffee, coffee grounds, with pepper heat sneaking in. Decent.

Draft - Light medical heat rub. Clearish copper with a decent beige head. Tastes a bit medicinal as well.

I’ve got nothing to compare this to. I taste the peppers, but it’s not to spicy. The sweetness from the chocolate and vanilla are also there. Try it if you get a chance.

hopscotch (11182) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 2, 2014
Bottle... Zwanze Day 2014… Pours mostly clear and Longhorn-orange with a brief, off-white head. Full-bodied and fatty with trace carbonation. The aroma and flavor are twins. Interesting and enjoyable, but all over the place - vanilla, chocolate crème and earthy soil. Finishes acrid and lightly tangy. An odd bird, this one, but I really enjoyed it.
