The head on the pour fades fast, most pepper beers do for me. The body is a dark brown, translucent near the edges. the aroma is mostly dry chocolate with just a whisper of peppery spice, the pepper doesnt come through a whole lot. The flavors have more of the pepper but it presents less as a hot heat and more as a soft accent that breaks the chocolate down and makes it dryer and powdered flavor, really adds a neat flavor without any heat. This one might be good for someone who normally doesnt like pepper beers. Id buy a 6er again.

Bottle. Black with a dark brown tinge, the head is sizzling and disappears quickly. Aroma: wood, cocoa, coffee beans, light acetone, chili peppers eventually. Taste: medium hot chilis with cayenne and ancho in the finish, cocoa, light licorice, some cream, vanilla. Woody, dry finish. Medium bodied. For me, this isnt too bad, but not completely successful.

12oz cans, new to Hops & Vines! Pours darkish with a tan off white head. Aromas of cinnamon, clove, & slight Ancho pepper. Flavor is medium bodied (for a stout) the peppers are more in the taste but still subtle. The milk sugar (lactose) is noticeable in the flavor and finish giving it a weird blend of a milk stout and spiced ale combo. Overall a well balanced novelty beer. I got some Ancho pepper when I belched afterward. No to little heat in the beer itself.

Okay, so I bit on this one despite my general aversion to SKA products, mostly because I love stouts with cocoa/chocolate and/or peppers and there are so few of them out there - pour is clear dark brown - initially fizzy, but quickly turns headless and almost still, looking like flat cola - interesting nose, with a complex mix of cinnamon, anise, dates, light cocoa, a hint of smoke, perhaps from the peppers, but no pepper character to speak of - carbonation is low to non-existent and the beer is thin and flabby in the mouth, which is a damn shame because there are some good things happening here - some lactose sweetness up front - followed by drier notes of cocoa, moderate cinnamon, some tartness, date, raisin - slight heat on the tongue, but the spiciness really comes through as a strong warmth at the back of the throat - some interesting and enjoyable individual parts, but as a whole it is a little weak - seems like an attempt to replicate Copper Kettle Mexican Chocolate Stout (suspiciously so, like they were literally trying to copy it) - Copper Kettles is much better and quite a bit spicier.

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.

Serving: 12 oz. can. It pours a muddy brown color with a fading light brown head. The nose has some fruity smoked chili notes. The flavor highlights fruity chili notes, red pepper, smoked chili powder, cocoa powder, and slight roasted malt notes in the distance. This one is clearly about the peppers. Medium body with a long finish. Its unusual which isnt bad but its so different its not one I would want another of.

355 ml bottle @ Pub Kultainen Apina, Tampere.
Pours dark red color with no head. Aroma of spices, some herbs, malts and pepper. Flavour of malts, spices like pepper, cardamum, apple pie, biscuits and some chocolate, faint dry cocoa powder notes also. Dry spicy palate. Weird.

Flaska frn SB. Ser ut som en coca cola nr man hller upp men skummet r borta p ett par sekunder. Ganska komplex chilidoft med grn paprika, jalapeno, chipotle, men ocks kanel. Ltt och lite platt kropp med samma fina smakrika men inte srskilt starka grn chili och chipotle, kanel, coca cola och grsiga rter. Kul och annorlunda, men kanske mer annorlunda n bra och drfr svr att betygstta.
