Didnt think much of it at first but it really grew on me. Great combination of flavors and a unique taste. Make it a seasonal! beernovice39 (3270) - Idaho, USA - APR 3, 2012
Bottle pours a dark ruby red with a thin tan head. Scent is pepper, spice, chocolate and herbal. Taste is pepper, chocolate and pepper. Great stuff! bhensonb (15500) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Bomber from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours very dark amber, almost brown, with a frothy near beige head. Aroma is like Mexican chocolate, but with chilies. Med body. Flavor is sweet chocolate, then cinnamon, then chilies. Light chili burn in rear of mouth. Very nicely done! User29624 (1683) - - MAR 29, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear brown with almost no head. Chocolate and caramel in the flavor. Cinnamon really dominates the flavor and the aroma. Not that spicy. Interesting beer. BeerandBlues2 (13655) - Escondido, California, USA - MAR 29, 2012
Tap at Max’s. Pours clear black with a small, fizzy off-white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is sugary cinnamon, nutty and caramel malt, spicy hops and peppers. Flavor is malt dominant, spices, peppers, light hops and bitterness, and a dry finish. Medium body, warmth and carbonation.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2015 Tap. Pours deep, dark brown with a trace of fizzy off-white; short retention and no lacing. Aroma is cocoa, chocolate milk, dark fruit, cookie malt and faint earthy hops. Flavor is sweet malt forward, dark fruit eaters and faint hops; sweet, chocolate milk taste throughout with a chili pepper aftertaste. Medium body, carbonation, and warmth.

Bottle. Super-dark brown with a bit of a reddish tinge. The head gives up quickly. The initial whiff is reminiscent of cinnamon brownies ... mmm, mmm, mmm. This is an interesting concoction ... chocolate, spicy pepper (but not too spicy), the aforementioned cinnamon. This is an awesome dessert!

Bright lightly hazed mahogany hue, decent head formation. Caramel licorice chocolate aroma. Tingling peppers instantly noticeable on the palate, turning to a spicy licorice and Hershey's syrup like chocolate. Very drinkable despite what at first despite what might seem like a real clash of flavored. Not been overwhelmed with new belgium or lips of faith lately but this was impressive. brigg (701) - New York, USA - MAR 27, 2012
(bottle) Dark reddish brown body with a medium light brown head. Interesting aroma--sweet chocolate, peppery chipotle/mole, caramel, cinnamon. Flavor is much the same, and it packs some definite if mild pepper heat; very sweet; dark chocolate and bitterness. Very interesting, but not really my favorite. Light to medium body. haddon90 (1634) - Newport Beach, California, USA - MAR 26, 2012
Bottle. Pours a deep, clear mahogany color with a thin, tan head. Strong, cocoa aroma with a hint of vanilla. Spices as well. Interesting taste. Very complex. Spicy, but light cocoa presence too. Very interesting beer. But a very good beer, nonetheless.
