I'm rating this as a pepper beer not a sour and as far as appearance this is one of the best looking beers for its style. Black as night with 2 fingers of tan head.. Slow-ish dissipation (let's face it pepper oils kill head). Smells Chocolatey, coffee... The peppers are very subtle in the nose but make their presence once it warms up. Well, here goes... Oh yeah feel the burn heh.. The first sip was very irritant to the throat (kind of expected it), but I got used to it quickly. Lots of sweet chocolate, dark roasted grains and a bit of smoke. This is very similar to ashtray heart in flavor.. But with heat. And a bit of it if I may add. Habanero peppers are sometimes a bitch, and this is one of those cases.. It's fine initially but don't bother taking a break because that burn gets you in the gums and throat. Thankfully I'm goo with spicyness, otherwise I feel if be hating every second of this hah.. Ok gettin the sweats.. It's cold in the basement but the fact that this is a RIS and I'm drinking it fast as hell to kill the bird from each sip does not help! Oh man, I'm starting to sound like a nagging housewife. Fuck! What is this beer doing to me?? Full body higher carbonation and uh yeah it's fucking hot. This is a beer everyone needs to experience. Hands down best tasting pepper beer. (I'm not counting bomb because that pepper is there for flavor not heat. There's no way anyone could expect good flavor from a habanero, it's all about the burn)

Poured from a bomber into a snifter, the beer is a mahogany highlighted black coloring with a frothy, foamy, dark tan head that sustains a solid surface covering while you drink. Aromas of milk chocolate, pepper, mocha, earthy notes, and an underlying bitterness. Flavors are smooth and sweet forward, with a milk chocolate and baker's chocolate blend, followed by a subtle, underlying pepper spice and heat. A great job is done keeping the pepper spice as a highlight and not letting it overpower anything. Coffee/mocha sweet and bitter balance throughout, transitioning to a cocoa and pepper spiced aftertaste. Smooth and light bodied, with a smooth, clean finish and a subtle pepper linger. Building heat in the back of the throat as you drink, too. Seriously, this is one of the better beers made with habanero peppers, using it as a balance/highlight instead of an overpowering palate wrecker.
