Brown color, tan head. Cocoa powder, chili peppers, roasted malt, some roasted nuts, burned toast. Nice beer but needs to pack a bigger punch IMO.

Can in the Head of Steam, Durham. Black body with fading tan head. Huge chocolate coffee aroma. Vary dry and bitter with lots of coffee and dark chocolate and a burnt toast finish. Nice but lacking something.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Chocolate nose. Creamy tan head. Sips sweet chocolate. Middle has Chipotle pepper and sweetness, which to my surprise isn’t working well. Full body throughout. Milky cocoa in the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice earthy chocolate aroma and pours a fairly deep tan brown head. Medium bodied and sort of borders on the close to silky. Black. Head deteriorates over time. Nothing complex but some depths and pretty enjoyable considering I drank it relatively cold. If I lived in Maui I’d be pretty tickled that this brewery was near by.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can... Murky dark brown ale with a small, fizzy, fleeting, khaki head. The nose is a lush marriage of vanilla and milk chocolate. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The flavor is full of carbonic roastiness, but is otherwise mostly bland. Finishes minerally and a touch acrid. Bottle courtesy of darkguardian!
