Dark brown in color, slight haze with a thin head. Good dark malt and nice spices added. Chocolate notes with a goof dry finish. Big complex beer. kathouse (1877) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Mahogany colored brew with a tan foam leaves lots of lacing. Spicy aroma is a mixed bag of nuts, chocolate, and pepper. Fine carbonation and medium body. Flavor is smooth and the finish is cocoa sweet. dchmela (3062) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 13, 2013
From the 22 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with little head. Peppers, chocolate and nutty notes pop through in aroma. Taste is big chocolate body with a spicy nutty accent. Pretty good.

Light sweet chocolate aroma with hints of nuttiness. Dark amber color with a medium tan head. Sour bitter beginning with a sweet pecan finish. tricyclist (1125) - Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Sample pour. Dark thin pour with a light khaki head. Nose is chocolate and hazelnut. Smooth and lightly sweet, a little caramel. Flavor is sweeter and smooth, caramel and nutty with chocolate all over. Not bad, not my favorite.

Black with almost a red hue.Too dark to show.Slight head.
Aroma has some sweet nutty pecans(you wouldnt know it was this uless you read it-although it has a nutty character . synthetic plastic slightly),toastiness,chocolate, caramel.very slight cinnimon.
Taste is chocolate,carmel,nutty,some toast,some spice.Fairly complex but almost watery or minerally.Bottle is over 6 mo. aged so maybe this would be more intense younger.Still a nice beer. A bit sweet,but not that rich and dosent seem like this high a abv. bb (9241) - Alamo, California, USA - JAN 4, 2013
