650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black body. Small khaki head. Medium collar.

Smell - Milk chocolate. Light peppers. A little coconut and vanilla. That could be left over from the Floyd D'Rue I drank previously.

Taste - Chocolate. Between dark and milk chocolate. Peppers build quickly. Sharp spiciness. Finishes with a nutty caramel malt.

Mouthfeel - Very spicy. Medium carbonation and medium body.

Overall - The pepper doesn't bother me so much, the way I thought it might. It's really just the stout that isn't very impressive.

Pours out black as night with a nice two finger light brown head, Smell is malty. Really smells like a beer that is not as dark. Smells a little sweet with maybe a little peppers but I'm just guessing cause I know it's supposed to have peppers in it. Otherwise I wouldn't think peppers. Taste.is dark malts, dark fruits, and a decent amount of peppers although not overwhelming. Compared to say Huna it seems to have more peppers. It's really not that much hotter but the choice of peppers seems to be such that it just doesn't meld with the stout as well as I would have hoped although it's still OK but not too great. Mouthfeel is medium to a little thin for what I would expect but the peppers are kicking in, Overall the beer is a decent stout with a little too much pepper for my taste but others may love it. I'm just over the hot pepper thing. Not to say it is really hot but just a little too much for the beer as it becomes a little too much than the beet can handle,

After drinking more it seems like they didn't pick the right peppers for taste and a little too hot for my taste. The peppers just don't add to the taste and really make the beer taste worse. Poor choice of peppers.

Aroma is dark malts, milk stout characteristics and a good hint of heat. The flavor is dark malts, chocolate and a long and deep heat in the finish. The first sip was not too bad as far as heat but after the second it became far too intense, to be expected with an ale made with ghost peppers.

Pours a dense, dark tan head with bier bubbling through the head. Head has great retention. Toasted malt in the nose. Black. Starts with toasted malt and slight acidity. Toasted, roasted chiles build in intensity. Heat crawls up from below and reaches a nice low-medium heat (about a Jalapeno). Finish is roasted chiles and toasted malt.

Overall, pretty nice. The heat is nice, but I would like more (as someone who eats chiles daily).
