Served on draft into a tulip at the Saucer on 3/15/13. Pours the deepest of black with absolutely no light penetration, topped unceremoniously with a dark brown head the color of brown sugar. It leaves just the finest of lacing as the glass empties rather quickly. The smell is all that the double stout was: roasted coffee and sweet milk chocolate slightly charred. Then there is the very present, but not over done chile throughout the nose. I really like the way the chile is balanced on the nose. The taste is not as chile forward as I would have expected either. It's a wonderful beer in its natural form, full of that roasty coffee and milk chocolate on the nose, with just a hint of sweet heat on the back end. The chile flavor builds over time to make a nice burn. Great mouthfeel as well. Great beer overall. It presents the chile flavor in a very subtle, but very present way that does not destroy the base product. I will have this again (on Sunday actually). Would love to try it on NITRO.
Serving type: on-tap
