Can from ales by mailGeiserich (4660) - Linz, AUSTRIA - OCT 20, 2013
Ruby tinged super dark brown with lacing of tan head. Chocolate, cranberry and cardamom on the nose. Medium bodied, spiky carbonation, initially chili spices, then head berries and lip tingling heat in the finish. Reminds of Mexican hot chocolate. Spice builds. Really enjoyable but a bit thin perhaps.
Can: Very intensive dark chocolate and cacao aroma with light notes of chilies. Black color and a quickly diminishing brown head. Flavor is malty, roasty, light sweet with a following, very intensive cacao and hocolate flavor. Light spicy with decent sharpness of the chilies. Finish is very roasty but not to bitter with notes of cacao powder and chilies. Very tasty and harmonic. timfoolery (1126) - California, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Taster at Whole Lotta Brews Going On at Whole Foods in Folsom. Aroma and flavor has a good amount of bittersweet chocolate and very light chili. Palate has great carbonation and overall mouthfeel. Nice beer. Dodgrblu (756) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Twelve ounce can Whole Foods Whole Lotta Brews Brewfest, somewhat watery, all the flavor is at the very end.

Pours like syrup. Dark dark brown with a thick brown head. Smells like molasses with some chocolate. Delicious dark roasted chocolate. Has a spiciness similar to Mexican hot chocolate. Fairly thick creamy palate and heavy bodied.

Can. Nice muddy pour, deep and dark, with a thick tan head of foam. The aroma is also compelling, hinting at some spice and roast. This drinks with a nice character, rich and thick, but not overwhelmingly so. The base is definitely baking chocolate, but the peppers give it a nice little earthy swirl, too. Good stuff.

Can from Beverages4less, San Diego. Thanks Freddy! Black pour, tan head. Aroma is of roasted malts, quite spicy, some chocolate, tobacco and slightly peppery. Flavor is bitter roasted, smooth and spicy. A hint of afterburning chilies, but very subtle. Solid stout, but less exciting that the description on the can made me think it would be.

Can from Coppers, Newcastle. This is an inky black beer that pours out of the can with a rapidly disappearing dark brown head. It has rich chocolate and spicy fruity flavours, earthy woody chilli notes with a sweet tart chocolate finish. mensch (289) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - SEP 25, 2013
Mahalo Doofgoblin. Thick black pour, dense tan foam. I’m not a fan of peppers in my beer, but this one works well. The spice is instantly evident, but not hot or heavy. Rather, it’s well integrated with the chocolate and smokey flavors that follow. A little sweet toasted malt in the finish. Better than the sum of its parts.
