draft poured a dark brown with off white head. the aroma was of roasted malts and cocoa. medium bodied and full flavored. took me a few sips to figure this one out. cocoa nibs and chilies....you don’t really feel the chilies in the mouthfeel but subtly in the belly afterwards nice and warming...do get some spice mix in it as well...possibly cinnamon. kind of shocked by this one. but very pleasantly surprised and this is pretty darn good. thornecb (6066) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Pours mahogany into a snifter. Tan head with little retention recedes to nothing. Pecan and cocoa aromas. Thick with dark caramel. Thin with dark caramel, pecan and cocoa upfront turning to a warming chili finish. zgaier (1964) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Bomber. Pours dark brown with an aroma of chocolate, cinnamon, and spices. Taste is sweet as well, lots of chocolate, cinnamon, spices, vanilla and heat from the chilies into the long finish. Delicious brew sonnycheeba (6360) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 16, 2015

Bottle from g-will liquors...loved this beer tons of chocolate...not much on the pepper side....really good beer...loved it! Nuffield (4201) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Wow--this is exciting beer. The chocolate dimension is especially strong, even more so when you look at this beer (it isn’t opaque) and wonder how they got so much chocolate into a beer that doesn’t look like an imperial stout. The chili is subtle--no burn, reasonably handled. Fun and good. (bottle at Ale Jail beer festival, September 2012) rbrazell (1763) - Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Draft at Fermentation. Pours a transparent deep brown with a small tan head. Nose is dominated by cocoa nibs with roasted malts, pecans with muted spices. Flavor is lots of sweet chocolate, vanilla, roasted nuts and more present spices. Quick sweet finish. Pretty tasty. PorterPounder (8296) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - Proof Brewing Company - on tap. Dark brown pour, off-white head, decent lacing. Aroma of licorice and chocolate. Flavor has a nutty profile to it with some chocolate accents and a touch of biscotti-like maltiness. Nice sticky mouthfeel. Pretty solid. BBB63 (6567) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Bottle and served in a tulip glass: Pours a deep brown with a small fading head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of java mocha coffee, pecans and walnuts, light pepper chili and cinnamon bun, some tar and leather, with a bit of roast and caramel malts. The taste is mostly sweet chocolate and vanilla with some roast support by a light handed chili spice edge. The spice components is just a step away from being what I want but at least you can find it unlike some peppers beers I have had (here is looking at you Stone). Lush and oily medium body works well with the flavors. Overall, a nice brew I would drink again if giving the chance but not sure if I would actually spend money for it when NB Moly and Ska Moly are still on the shelves.
