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.

On tap at Flying Saucer in Nashville.
A: Deep black with thin medium brown head. Spotty lacing as the glass is emptied.
S: Roasted malts, some chocolates, chilies. I was hoping for bigger nose on this one, but all smells were somewhat subdued. Might be a result of the tap and might be better coming from bottle.
T: Big chocolate with roasted flavors mixed nicely with spiciness from the peppers. The heat comes from the chilies is apparent up front while drinking, and carries forward afterwards. Very nice departure from the standard stouts.
M: Medium body and nicely carbonated. Coats the tongue nicely like most stouts in this group.
O: I liked this one quite a bit. Was pleasantly surprised how well the peppers were integrated and enhanced the flavor instead of overpowering it.

From 04/16/13 notes. Had this on tap at Rattle N Hum in NYC.
a - Pours a dark brown color with one inch of medium tan foam and moderate carbonation evident. Looks pretty nice, like the normal double stout.
s - Smells of milk chocolate, roasted malts, burnt malts, dark chocolate, light coffee, and light cream. Nice, like the normal double stout. Not getting much peppers in the nose, though I like it.
t - Tastes of milk chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla, hot peppers, spice, toasted malts, burnt malts, light coffee, and some light bitterness in the end. Peppers come through in the taste a bit, though nothing overpowering, which I appreciate.
m - Medium to full bodied stout, with moderate carbonation. Not too spicy.
o - Overall a nice stout and a nice variation on the normal double stout. I would put it on par with the normal version, with a little bit of spice in the taste. Worth checking out if you like the normal double stout and/or spiced stouts.

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!
