3.15/5 rDev -19%
Served in 12oz tulip. Poured a solid black with over an inch (which, when that settled, left me with about 9oz of actual beer?) that had low-to-moderate retention and low lacing.
The aroma was the typical sweet malt of the style, with no hint of pepper. On the tongue the flavor starts out as that of a typical example, but then the peppers kick in harshly on the back of the tongue. The pepper hotness lingered too long to be enjoyable.
The body was very thin for the style. Drinkability will depend on your taste for peppers. For me, this is a one-and-done tick. Overall, an OK brew, that's probably not for everyone.

3.7/5 rDev -4.9%
A - Pitch black with a dark cocoa head that leaves spotty lacing down the glass.
S - Dark malts and grains. A lot of chocolate with a little pepper spice.
T - Very, very similar to the Imperial Stout. Peppers don't really show a lot of character. Mostly rich malts, chocolate, and coffee, followed up by a spicy tingle. Maybe this is what the brewers were going for since the used Serrano peppers. Not really sure, but I think it could use some help from the spice. Still a very drinkable, and marketable, pepper stout but could use some more heat.
M - Very rich with no alcohol present. Peppers add a little tingle to the tongue which is a great replacement for carbonation.
O - Great introduction to spicy beers, but doesn't quite live up to the name. If the brewers for going for a very moderate spice, then hats off to them because the spice is very light.

On cask at Haven Gastropub in Pasadena, CA.
Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, chiles, and tortilla aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, char, and chile flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of chile heat in the back of the throat after each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with some interesting aromas and flavors from the chiles used.
