12 oz. can from Plaza Liquors - Pours a dark brown color with a one finger thick light tan head that faded in a minute or so. Lightly carbonated. Faint tiny spotted lacing. Aroma is esters, light toasted malt, and hints of peppers, cinnamon, and cocoa. Flavor is much of the same. Medium body. Not as spicy (heat) as I thought it would be. A pleasant beer.

Didnt go in with the hugest expectation, but this one really surprised me in a very good way. Pours dark brown with a tan head. The aroma has dark cocoa, roasted malt, fresh pepper spice, cinnamon, cream and vanilla - quite lovely overall. Medium / thin body with a modest amount of somewhat soft carbonation. The flavor starts with a nice blend of smooth roasted malt, cocoa nibs and phenolic spice. the finish some the light heat and meatiness of the peppers. There is a hint of the spices used, but I cant point out exactly what is there except that it seems to show some cinnamon. Really tasty.

Spicy..can definitely taste the chilis in it. I liked the taste but found it to smell of plastic and general metallic weirdness. Overall pretty good as the spice overcame the smell.

Pleasantly surprised by this beer, simply because of my expectations based on the ingredient list. Smooth chocolate taste with a more subtle pepper flavor at first, then mellows nicely as it is drank.

Pour out of can, dark black pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of big chili, chocolate, nice cinnamon, earth, some coffee, toffee, sweet cocoa, nice balance overall. Taste is nice, a little watery, but nice chocolate, coffee, hints of chili and pepper notes, some cinnamon, toffee, finishing fairly sweet, bitter, and dry, with a slight hint of heat. This works fairly well.

12 oz. can poured to a Czech-pils glass at Lunar Brewing Co., showing a lightly ruby highlighted, black/brown hue, with a rather fleeting layer of creamy, brownish tan head foam, and lacing that also disappeared quickly. If I didnt know that this bartender is always very particular about glassware, Id suspect a poorly cleaned glass. The aroma was earthy, peppery, herbal, a little woody, with some cocoa & dry coffee. Roastiness was present but well masked by the initial, stronger notes. The flavor proceeded to add some different components to up the complexity as spiciness, light sweetness, stone fruit, and a kind of berry lozenge taste. The body was medium+ and the carbonation was luckily subdued. A lively variety might have combined with the medium bitterness and pepperiness as a dart to the palate. As it was, they lingered well on the tongue, along with an oily texture, into the finish. Not that I would make a steady diet of this brew, but I liked its well crafted diversity.

This beer was a big surprise. BIG Surprise. Pours a medium stout brown with a tan head. Nose is earthy peppers, some roasted malts, and cocoa with chocolate, and earthy spices. Flavor is earthy peppers right in the front with roast, cocoa, chocolate, and spices. Medium in body and lingering earthy spices in the finish. At 5.5% if this was around me, I would drink the hell out of this beer. Top-notch.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Draft at Fountainhead. Really glad I gave this one a try! Pours black with a dark brown head. Nose is spicy, cocoa, cinnamon and raisins. Chilies come out as well. Rich and full. On tasting, moderate heat, nice creamy notes on the palate. Cinnamon and faint astringency from it. Chocolate and chilly heat lend some raisin notes as well. Really well constructed beer. Big like.

Can. Blackish with red edges. Peppers, chocolate, spice and toasted dark malts. A hint of spice as it warms. Not bad.
