Kegerator pour. Ink color with good foam. Red apple nose hints at some esters or oxidation. Taste is spicy pepper, assertive cinnamon, some tootsie roll. Palate is balanced and not too sweet. Carbonation level is lower. Pretty nice overall, but possibly was damaged in transit. DocLock (11105) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2016
Draft at Capone’s. I thought the cacao and pepper in this worked very well. Not too much heat, a solid and dense base RIS, great flavor, with the aforementioned ingredients adding depth and originality. Well done. hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 16, 2016
On tap at Capone’s. Poured a black color with a small sized head. Chocolate, cinnamon, and light roast with the alcohol content well hidden. vtafro (7444) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - MAY 7, 2016
Draft. Dark pour with tan head. Chocolate, roasted, chilies, sweet aromas. Flavored are nice, sweet malt, chilies, chocolate, not overly hot. PhillyCraft (7981) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2016
Sampled at Capones, dark black color with small ring of head but pretty flat. Reminded me of a BA Abraxas or Hunah. Notes of cocoa nibs, ancho chile, cinnamon, sweet malt, and other chocolate notes. Medium to fuller mouthfeel with warming quality in body. Nice

Pours jet black with a thick mocha head. Aroma of cinnamon, peppers, chocolate and vanilla. Taste follows, this gives hunahpu a run for its money. Very nice! Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - MAR 14, 2016
growler, heavy oxidation on this one, a freshly filled growler. Some spices, light roast and sweet oxidation. Adjuncts arent balanced to base, wasnt a fan. hopscotch (11305) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 18, 2016
Draft... Grand Opening Party... Pours pitch black with a mid-sized, wispy, mushroom-colored head. Decent retention. The aroma features loads of cinnamon, vanilla and some deep roastiness - black, unsweetened chocolate. Full-bodied and lightly creamy with stinging carbonation. The flavor is deeply roasted and acrid with notes of sweet vanilla, cinnamon and caramel. Finishes with dark chocolate and some chili pepper warmth. madmitch76 (25801) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2016

Craft Islington. Keg. Opaque black - brown beer, small tan head. Smooth dark malts, some nice cream and no roasty bitterness. Nice mellow dark chocolate. A delightful coconut streak runs throughout. Mellow soft cinnamon really compliments. Super mild chilli warmth. Silky smooth finish. Super duper!
Growler shared by Jack on Darkness day, thanks man! Dark brown pour. Strong cinnamon and booze aroma. Taste follows, reminds me of cinnamon toast crunch. Good stuff.
