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.

Pours a dark brown, opaque. Fresh brewed coffee, olives, and fresh chilies on the nose. Mouthfeel is silky, creamy, and full. Chocolate up front. A lot smoke, olives, and fresh green chilies emerge in the middle. Finishes with a little puckerdness, if you will. This is a fun and magnificent beer.

This luxurious stout is super solid black in appearance with a big light brown crown and gravel-like, foamy lacing that retains well. The aroma gives a chewy tobacco malt with a sure twist of chili powder. Nothing more need be said. Awesome. The flavor follows with sweet vanilla malt with more of that leathery tobacco and pleasant but deliberate chili pepper heat. Theres a touch of grassy brightness in the background as well but nothing i would define as hoppy, just a bit of contrast. This stuff is velvety smooth in feel with medium plus body, moderate carbonation. The pepper heat is clear but not overdone at all assuming you're any kind of fan of chili flavor and a little challenge to the taste buds. I love this stuff. It coats your throat with a pleasant pepper spiciness while maintaining deep malt pleasure and adequate sweetness. Woderfully balanced for this style. Bravo!
