Pours a hazed chestsnut brown with a clingy thinner off white head atop.Some fresh chili notes in the nose with very light brown sugar,I would have liked a little more form the nose.The chili'es are no joke on the palate with the fresh roasted flavor dominating over top of bitter chocolate and earth.I wanna like this beer more than I do because I like the chili spice but there just isn't enough of everything that goes with it like chocolate,earth,brown sugar etc....It's a decent beer and I really like the spice,just kinda balance it out a little.

22 oz bottle that became volcanic upon opening ... Perhaps a consequence of recent travel.

Aroma. Cinnamon, chillies, other spices.  Layered and complex. 
Flavor plenty of chillie pepper in here, with medium (for beer) heat. Still, less pepper and pepper heat than the nose suggests.

Near mild burn in the medium body, medium carbonation. 

O: a very interesting brew that is worth trying.

Not impressed with this. Can smell, and possibly taste the peppers, but little to no brownie noticeable to me. Not sure what I expected, but this is not something I would drink again

Sample at Max's on 7/23/14 (from notes)

A: Dark, dark brown.

S: Spice and that is about it here.

T: Weird warning to it with a light spice. Odd overall flavor with no brownie/chocolate flavors that I got.

M: Spice particulates and light carbonation.

O: I had bought a bottle of this, but then returned it when I found out it was going to be on tap at Max's for their Terrapin Takeover. I'm glad that I did.
