look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black body with no head. Kinda lifeless.

Smell - Lots of peppers. And not much else. A little bit of milk chocolate.

Taste - Light barrel, but it's all peppers. Lightly chocolatey. Spicy finish.

Mouthfeel - Highly carbonated and kinda spicy.

Overall - This just isn't a very good beer.

S - Smells like raspberry jalapeños as there is a Raspberry port up front and then there are earthy jalapeños in the backend up front 2.5

T - Raspberry and chocolate before waves of jalapeño comes thru. It has some heat but tastes just like an earthy, jalapeño flavor.

M - Medium body with carbonation and yet an earthy presence from the jalapeños

O- This could have been good if it had some heat and chili spice but instead this was just overpowered by a strong jalapeno flavor which when combined with the sweetness of the Port was just an odd flavor that I didn't enjoy.

Bottle 199 of 217

Pours an oily reddish hued black with discernible transitions in color. Head is minimal.

Nose is unmistakable port. Big grapey sweetness , red fruits, and lingering chiles in the periphery. The base is pretty much obliterated on the smell.

Taste follows suit....massive port presence, little semblance of any Moloko milk stout other than the thin-ish base beer, Very fruit driven...milk chocolate covered raspberries. Finish is a tidal wave of spicy peppers. Heat bites at the tongue and lingers hot at the back of the throat, with the intensity rising as the beer warms. Even as a lover of chiles, the spice is a beast.

Mouthfeel resembles more port than stout. Strange in that many parts of this beer really shine but the sum of the parts falls a bit short in the flat port feel, with no resemblance of a stout.

A port chile driven machine....those wary of port or chiles should stay far away, as should anyone expecting anything tasting of Moloko. A fun try...happy to have tried this...but a weird beer. This guy walks on the other side of the block, says Kyle.

M- medium body and carbonation. Smooth with spice.

O- surprising beer with nice dark fruit and peppers

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

Poured from a bottle to a plastic cup while waiting to purchase tickets to The Great Taste of the Midwest

Appearance: Dark, slight red hue. No head to speak of.

Smell: The nose is sweet, port, and peppers. Some alcohol.

Taste: Sweet, immediately detectable.

Mouthfeel: This is the most interesting aspect. It's flat upfront, fairly thin bodied, with a slightly sticky texture. It finishes though with the heat in the back of the throat from the peppers.

Overall: While maybe not popular with others that have tried this, I found it to be outstanding. I enjoy chilis, and peppers, etc. I enjoy port, and the base beer (Moloko) that they used for this. In fact I thought Three Floyds did a good job of representing each aspect they brought into this. I wish I could find another bottle some time.

8/217

Pours no head. Color is a deep brown, nearing black.

Aroma: Tons of chili pepper. Very spicy. Cocoa flavors and creamy milk chocolate. Barrels don't show here.

Taste: Much different from the nose. Starts out fruity with mangoes and oranges, then the chilies hit with lots of spice and pepper flavors. Cocoa and chocolate. I think the port barrels have something to do with the fruitiness.

Mouthfeel: Spiced, than smooth. Medium bodied with a lower amount of carbonation. Ends with heat from the peppers.

Overall, i thought this was a great beer. Very unique and very flavorful. I love peppers and they tasted great. I'd easily drink this again.
