Brown pour with creamy tan head and lace. Aroma of coffee, abv, chili’s, and resin. Flavor is brown sugar, chili’s, abv, and a nice resiny bitter. Smooth carbonation on a medium bodied beer.
Dark brown malt aroma toast and some chili. Taste of some alcohol no hear from chili but some vegetable chili flavor. It sure does give you a buzz quickly. Cybercat (6017) - Georgia, USA - MAY 31, 2015
Pours opaque coffee brown with a thin light tan head. Aroma has a strong overtone of wood and molasses, plus earthy, roast malt, and semi-sweet chocolate notes. Flavor has firm notes of alcohol-soaked wood, semi-sweet chocolate, toasted malt, molasses, and mild chili peppers. Firm body has plenty of strong fizz. Worth a hot pursuit!

Appearance: Very dark brown, near black body with a slim, sandy head. Thin, glass-coating lace.
Smell: The aroma is led by a green, vegetal chile quality, then, some sugary-hinting dark chocolate syrup, roasted malt and coffee.
Taste: As with the nose, vegetal chile upfront. Dark chocolate, roasted malt (scantly astringent). Licorice, phenolic spiciness. Citrus, lightly resinous, its hop bitterness tangled together with the pepper spiciness and alcoholic heat. Slight dark chocolate quality, with a bit of sweetness sustains throughout the spicy, warm, bitterish finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Medium-light carbonation.
Overall: They had me right up until the Serrano chiles part. Still, I will say it’s very, very good for a chile beer.

On tap at the brewpub. Dark brown pour with a kaki head. Mild chili aromas. Plenty of chili presence up front that lead to the Mexican chocolates and dark roasted malts. Good body and mouthfeel. aracauna (3651) - Georgia, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Nice toasty malt I’d backed up by pepper fruit, but doesn’t have an unpleasant heat in finish. Aggressive beer. EricTeusink (700) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Earlier rate referred to this beer as a kitchen sink brew. Apropos. Pours darkest brown with nice tan head. Scent is spice, chocolate, coffee, and caramel. Flavor is sweet with a spicy bite. Thick. Draft - Wrecking Bar, Atlanta, GA BluePhish (93) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Definitely a kitchen sink brew, somewhat searching for an identity. Pour is burnt umber with small mocha head. Aroma is mostly chocolate and vegetal chile notes with an undercurrent of pithy hops. Taste is quite layered with chocolate on top of slight bitterness on tip of warming chile heat on top of caramel malt. Finish is long and war alcohol definitely prevalent. Overall an interesting an fun beer. It perhaps trying to do too much all at once.

On tap in a flight from Ale Yeah! Pours dark brown, with a small, tan head. The aroma is caramel, cinnamon, green chilies, and some light milk chocolate. Very sweet, boozy, and light, chalky bitterness. The chili spiciness is mild, but leaves a pleasant warmness in the finish. Heavy body, chalky, and sticky. Overall, this is a thick, flavorful beer. The chilies add a nice veggie flavor and good spiciness, without being overbearing. Very nice!
