This looks luscious. Pitch black. Extra dark brown head that quickly disappears. Aroma of 90% dark chocolate, rich black coffee, some alcohol, and medium roasted malts. The taste is exactly the same. On the back end there is light lactose and a little milk chocolate. The chili lingers in the background and is barely noticeable. In the mouth, this feels rich, with low/medium carb. The body is very substantial, just how I like it. This is a man's drink. The finish is clean...Very clean.

Overall, this deserves the posted accumulative scores. Excellent stuff.

Update: Wait, the chili creeps up...

Pretty sure something is wrong with this bottle. Rusty cap and there's a "snot" in the bottle. Will need to try again.

Truly the best beer I have ever had!
I can smell the chili peppers, slight chocolate, coffee and tobacco notes. It tastes mainly of chocolate and coffee. I don't really detect the chili pepper flavor.Very smooth.

This is exceptional. Alcohol is entirely masked and I taste every bit of coffee and chocolate. Almost perfect.
