Poured on tap into a snifter at Churchkey.

Thin tan brown threecollar millimeter collar, leopard lacing and spotty character. A simple classic dark brown walnut body, with real nice ruby red edges.

Ripping nose on this sucker. Lots of fresh roasting coffee bean, right to the grind. A bit of large dark powdered cocoa. A clean charring roast feeling slightly giving hints of dark mild style. Really impressive.

Palate is full of roast coffee. Slightly hinting at chocolate but quite burried as the coffee overwhelms and dominates. Light impressive mild and light porter sensing body. Feels and comes off like a session beer. Has some residual root beer and cola sweetness.

A real interesting take on an imperial stout with a powerful impressive bouquet. Solid brew.

Appearance – Dark brown, but slightly translucent. A small-medium head with a little lacing that quickly drips back into the beer.

Smell – A surprisingly strong smell of chocolate, malt, and chili pepper with mint. Some coffee as well. It’s pretty nice.

Taste – Chocolate, malt, and I get a hint of mint (am I the only one that notices this?) Taste isn’t as strong as the smell.

Mouthfeel – Lightly carbonated, a little watery for an imperial stout. Could use a bit more alcohol for my taste. Some bitter hoppiness in the aftertaste.

Drinkability – A decent beer that went down easy.

Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours pitch black with a fine half finger head with great retention and lacing. Nice aroma of lightly toasted dark malt, quality coffee and chocolate. Flavor follows with rich toasted malt with a hint of char, some suggestions of oats, good coffee and chocolate. This out a bit in the middle, bringing the brighter earthy coffee flavors to the fore, but finishes with lingering dark semi-sweet malt, coffee and some light hop bitterness. Excellent creamy body, suggesting an outmeal stout. A quite well made coffee stout with a good malt body, quality coffee flavors that are well integrated and hints of chocolate and hops. Enjoyable. Doubt if I'll ever see this again, but I'll buy if I do.

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a quarter finger high tan head that died down, leaving wispy lacing on the surface and a collar of large bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Loght to moderate aromas of chili peppers are present in the nose along with notes of coffee beans.
T: The taste has flavors of dark malts and coffee beans along with notes of chili peppers towards the finish.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied and a little chalky on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I'm not sure where this name cones from, but it seems like a very balanced hybrid between a chili beer and a stout.

11.2 ounce bottle.

A: Pours black with reddish edges under a half-inch thich mocha head which fades to the rim leaving spotty lace.

N: Roast, mild chili pepper (maybe from the spaghetti?) spices, roast coffee and chocolate.

T: Deeply roasted, chocolate, earthy coffee, spices like oregano perhaps from the spaghetti addition.

M: Semi-full body and semi-medium carbonation. Smooth, creamy, roasty coffee with a bitter finish.

O: Enjoyable. Glad to find a bottle.
