Cocoa - not chocolatey aroma with pepper premonitions. Hops are missing or masked by the leathery yeast. Color like a black hole. No light can escape it. Taste is a balanced combination of sweet and bitter with the slight tinge of hot peppers. Not as full bodied as the appearance suggests, and the creamy, lively palate feeling ends with a nice long finish. Overall, a good but unusual beer. Not for everyone, but if you like this combination of hot peppers and cocoa, you’ll be in heaven!
12 oz. can, pours black with a small beige head. Nose brings out lots of spicy peppers upfront, with a bit of cocoa. Flavour is dull, with oxidized cocoa and spicy peppers. Certainly past its prime, but inoffensive. Meh. Meilby (11790) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 24, 2017

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2017 On tap @ På kornet, Stavanger. Pours dark brown with very small brown head. Aroma of perfumed soap, herbs, spices, cocoa, chocolate. Very special aroma, however, I am not sure it is pleasant. Taste sweet with a little sour fruitiness wnd umami. Spicy mouth feel with growing chili spiciness, though not becoming overwhelmingly hot.

Tap @ Patricks. Black body with a dense beige head. Nice spicy aroma with low roasted dark malt and something in between Christmas spices and chai tea. Flavor is sweet, dark malt, mild roast, dry fruit, moderate bitterness and spicy like aroma (ginger, cinnamon, pepper and chai tea). Fine balanced body and good aftertaste that also ads some warming chili. Pleasant and tasty and rather original. drsordr (2925) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - DEC 4, 2016
Bottle from Binny’s pour opaque cola brown with thin effervescent head that quickly dissipates to none. Nose caramel, light chocolate, green chilies, cinnamon, and coco powder. Taste initially some cinnamon and chocolate, then the chilies. Only mild heat from then chilies. Spice and chocolate in the finish. I’m a fan of mole stouts, so I probably rate it higher than others,but don’t think it’s horrible. Imaena (2359) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - SEP 30, 2016
Darught. This is brew might appeal to the hardcore chile beer fans but to me it tasted musty and overwrought. Would be good to use in cooking though. Nische (2661) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 3, 2016
Bottled. Pours black with fizzy tan head, like coca cola. Woody aroma with some pepper, chocolate and vanilla. Very spritzy mouthfeel, also like coca cola. Somewhat woody flavor with chocolate, peppers and spices. McNeillR (2333) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 6, 2016
Thick dark brown, no real head. Nose is a clingy peppery spice and light nutty choc. Initial taste is a fairly coppery bitter before a big salty spice. Carbonation is soft and mouthfeel is keen spicy pepper. Finishes a nice cough of sweetness but lingers brave and spicy. Kinda one sided, like a delicious rasher of bacon with a burnt edge.
