Pours a dark copper, nearly brown, highly opaque and hazy with a slightly off-white head that didn't last for too long and didn't leave much lacing to speak of on the glass. The smell was... off. Heavy metallic-steel smell - kind of off-putting and unwanted. Also picking up some fruity medicinal smells. Not terrible, but kind of strange for this style. Initial taste has some very, very slight toffee and caramel, I'm really not picking up the chocolate like they said. Toasted malts, maybe. Midway through, the chili powder comes through and I'm getting a nice meaty/chili flavor the rest of the way through. Almost no bitterness and no hops. Thin mouth, crispy, lots of carbonation.
The meat and chili taste was unique, and not bad, but this beer is just too... weird. It's not awful, but it's not good enough to want again and again. I commend the uniqueness, but that's about it.
