tap - odd side ale room in grand haven. One of the better beers tried here - complex with its taste, smooth and powerful

Aroma is dark malts, cinnamon and definitely creeping chilies. The flavor is dark malts, cinnamon, dark fruit/fruit and a mix of chilies and acidity in the finish.

From BandC. Not my thing, weird aroma, very spiced, and then the heat was a little much. Interesting if it was part of a sample but not a whole bottle. Serving: Bottle

12/23/16. 12oz bottle thanks to Patrick! Another Hunahpus clone! Black pour with a nice khaki head. Okay aroma, roasted malts, chocolate, some spice. Good flavor, roasted malts, chocolate, cinnamon, a touch of spice that builds. Tasty.

Very rich Stout with mocha tones. Great body with very dark color and wonderful aroma. Oh and it pairs well with a great burger.

phaleslu (9925) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 17, 2017
12 oz. bottle from Mark - thanks again, Mark! Pours an opaque near-black color, really deep, with a small tan head that settles into a ring, small island of film, and a few ropes of lace in the glass. Big cinnamon and spicy peppers and nutmeg in the aroma, along with brown sugar, coffee, chocolate, and graham cracker. The flavor doesnt quite have the same balance or depth, with coffee, habanero, dark chocolate, cinnamon, earth, dark fruits, brown sugar, and a hint of metal. Light-medium bodied, with a spicy, sweet, rich, and just barely tangy mouthfeel. Spicy finish and aftertaste. Just a wee bit too much heat on the palate without as much balance as the aroma. Nice, fun beer otherwise.

smroush (259) - Michigan, USA - FEB 20, 2017
Aroma is spicy, spicy, spicy... definitely the habeneros, but also vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg - wow! There is a fair amount of bitterness, though who knows if its from hops or roasted malt. Color is pretty much black with a small tan head. Taste includes that generalized bitterness and not too much sweetness. Body is medium; texture is oily to creamy; carbonation average; finish is loooong and warm.

Draft. Pours thick black. The aroma is bold. Cinnamon and spices. The main taste cinnamon and sweet chocolate is light but good. Then the heat rushes in not over powering.

AWISLguy (2863) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 1, 2017
12oz bottle from Beer Bazaar in Hainesville. Big cinnamon/pepper presence with almost a chocolate mint component. Loved the BA imperial version which seemed to smooth the pepper out. This is solid with the pepper being a key player. 13.8

Dark black. Very thin and receding lacing. Starts off chocolate and cinnamon and then habernero sits on the palate. Not much heat, its just really well balanced. I love these sessionable mexican chocolate style beers. Thx arminjewell

Thechasm442 (967) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 27, 2016
Bottle. Black with a small tan head that leaves no lacing. Aroma is cocoa, coffee, cinnamon, winter spices, and pepper. Taste is cocoa, chocolate, coffee, winter spices, cinnamon, and pepper in the finish. Thinner for the style and a lingering mild heat.
