We had a single bottle of this beer sitting in our growler station fridge for a few weeks and just decided to try it tonight.
I didn't expect too much from this beer upon looking at the bottle, but it seriously took me for a ride.
A: An almost see through dark brown with a slight head. Almost looked like Coke in a glass with a head on it.
S: Very noticeable fresh coffee bean smell, can't really pick up the strawberry or jalapeno at this point.
T: BOOM! Roasted jalapenos, slight black coffee, quick little bitterness from the hops, and an a slight rounding flavor from the strawberries which are actually barely noticeable.
M: Very light (since it it 5.5%) Just a wee bit of effervesce. Goes down very easily since it is so tasty.

Had a glass at the Trapp Door in Emmaus PA. It might be more accurate to call this a chili beer, since the jalapenos dominate the flavor. Of course, strawberries are also used, but they only add a mild fruit sweetness. I actually have trouble pulling brown malt notes out of this. There's the clean, fresh pepper upfront, then a touch of subtle fruit esters, but no clean toasted or roasted malts—just a slight caramel hit. An interesting beer, but it could be cleaner.

While stopping in at my local beer bar, the owner asks if I've had the Love Is EvoL from Prism. Curiously, I said no and asked what it was. Her response? "Well, it's made with strawberries and jalapeños." Say, what? Interested to say the least, I was given a sample and decided on a pint, too.
A: Dark brown body - it honestly looked like a Porter at first - with a small off white head. No lace or retention of any sorts, really. Not terrible but a little bit more would have been nice. Could have been the pour itself also.
S: The strawberry fruitiness does come out first, but it's gone almost instantly. There's a nice amount of darker malts, and then out of left field is this very fleshy, peppery note. It's really interesting and not bad in any way just somewhat unexpected. Well, not unless you knew it was brewed with jalapeños!
T: Like the nose, the strawberry flavor comes first but it again doesn't last long at all. The fruitiness blends into the roasted malts, some chocolate and a slight bitterness mid-palate. A slight taste of chile flesh is at the back. A few sips later, the lingering spiciness comes in and stays around. Interesting beer to say the least.
M: Well-carbonated, medium bodied, sort of an all around okay feel to things. Nothing stellar but nothing poor, either.
I'm glad I tried this one out, it was an interesting beer though nothing I would or could drink regularly. Nice job at taking a risk and twist on the very boring (IMO) Brown Ale.

drank at the taproom at the brewery.
appears very dark brown, with thin frothy off-white colored head. aroma is sorta smoky from the jalapeno peppers, earthy.
taste is nutty and malty like you'd expect for a brown ale, but the jalapeno again adds an element of smokiness and spiciness. Not overwhelming though. I don't detect the strawberry at all. Body is neither thin nor thick, good carbonation level.
overall, a nice twist on the style. I can see it being a polarizing beer however. But put me on the positive side.
