look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into a tulip glass. From notes. Reviewed 14 September 2011.

A: Huge head with good retention. Black-dark, but lightly translucent.

S: Malty-sweet and well...beery. Some chocolate? Maybe?

T: Delicious! A brilliant medley of chocolates, milk and dark; coffee beans; and just a touch of hot spice to moderate the sweetness.

M: Well-balanced. Creamy, but not too thick. Excellent carbonation. Yum.

O: Good beer, but not as exceptional as I'd hoped. Still, recommended. I'd have another.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: When held up to the light, this beer is clear but very dark reddish brown in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high tan colored head that died down but has good retention properties, consistently leaving a thick coating of bubbles on the surface and down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of cocoa nibs are present in the nose along with some hints of chili peppers.
T: Like the smell, the taste starts off with flavors of cocoa nibs and notes of vanilla beans and is quickly followed by notes of spicy chili peppers that persist through the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I picked this beer up because I saw it had cocoa nibs and vanilla beans but didn't notice that it also had chili peppers. Although this combination seemed a little awkward on paper, the spiciness of the chili peppers really seemed to work with this beer as they weren't overpowering and masked any apparent sweetness from the cocoa nibs.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

a: dark brown body, millions of tiny specs floating. one inch of tan creamy head settles to a ring, lacing is minimial.

s: powdered cocoa, chili peppers and a muted vanilla presence.

t: cocoa and vanilla up front, then they are stomped intoi the ground by a still very hot pepper flavor.

m: medium body, good carbonation. sweet and spicy with a burn in the back of the throat to finish it off.

o: meh, but this beer is for a good cause so I would probably buy another one.
