Sampled at esbls tasting. Dark red brown with minimal head. This is spiced and malty. Chocolate is tasted in the backgroung and peppers along side it. bubbleflubber (2235) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Pours ruby-brown into the glass, with a fully diminished head that leaves no lace of which to speak. The nose is of sweet, spiced bread. Flavors are similar, with tons of chocolates, caramel, vinous notes, light prunes, pie spices and finishes with dark chocolates, spices and accelerating chile heat. The mouthfeel is vinous, providing a medium body that allows activity through a coexistence of subtle carbonation and budding heat from the chilies, making for a very interesting brew here. An enjoyable and interesting offering, especially for the multiple-accessed areas of the palate. DocJitsu (2036) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Poured into a tulip snifter out of a 22 oz. bottle. Pours a dark cola brown with a one finger caramel colored head. Sweet, roasted aromas of carame and vanilla. Moderately thick and a little creamy, with microscrubbing co2 for balance. Sorghum, cocoa mix, and caramel. wagman (124) - - OCT 19, 2013
Pours pitch black no head what so ever. Aroma of toasted nuts, chocolate and hints of the chili. Up front you're hit with a slit heat from the chilis. Then settles in chocolate coffee. Very unique. First chili beer I've actually enjoyed.

"A nice brown/porter looking brew that is just a tiny bit behind the really awesome spiced stouts if you will (ie-chocolate sombrero). Pecans are at once a nice touch and a deterrent, causing the flavor to be a touch too sweet. Chili and cinnamon and chocolate really comes out as the beer warms. I’d get far more often if not so expensive."

Nice boxed bomber from Capone’s, from the boxed reserve series. Pours translucent chestnut color with minimal khaki head. Nose is roasty patent/choc malt, nuts, cacao. Tastes malty, nutty, pretty rich, not hoppy but with a patent malt flavor up front, mid-palate cacao, nuts, more peppery heat as it warms, and a complex finish. This one was unique. b3shine (9154) - Indiana, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Bomber to oversized snifter (shared with the wife; thanks daknole). Looks sold; a dull brownish-black with beige lacing. Smells solid; malt and cocoa. Tastes the same with an average mouthfeel. Not bad. jeremytoni (3083) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - NOV 12, 2012
From a bottle poured a dark brown color with a small amount of head. Sweet spicy malty flavor with a lingering finish. j12601 (13141) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 21, 2012
On tap at Gingerman after our our bar crawl through Brooklyn. Pours a clear ruby tinged brown with a thin to medium sized beige head. Light roast, cocoa. Light sweetness, roast, cocoa. Too sweet, a little bit one dimensional. Sweet warming alcohol into the finish. IrishBoy (4233) - Bakersfield, California, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Bomber from Country Club Liquors. Nose is light chilies, cocoa, and some nutty roast. Clear brown with a medium beige head. Flavor is a very lightly peppery warmth, chocolate, and chilies. Finishes lightly warm. Decent but not great.
