22 oz bottle poured into Two Brothers tulip glass. Appearance is dark and opaque with cocoa colored head which dissipates quickly and leaves decent lacing. The nose is intensely roasts with heavy cocoa character and some ancho chili adding a savory component at the end. The taste is chocolatey up front followed by a bit of a metallic taste which I presume is from the influence of the peppers. There is a mild heat at the very back that builds ever so gradually. Mouthfeel is moderate to heavy with medium carbonation. Overall, this isn't the best chocolate/pepper beer that I've tasted as it lacks that marriage between the two components. It is however a tasty product nonetheless and worth a try.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Described as a spicy cocoa stout. Right on. It pours an excessively dark black-brown topped by a finger of tan foam. The nose comprises sweet cocoa (really goddamn sweet, we're talking perfume-y, for gods' sakes), light roasted malts, a hint of coffee, and a pinch of brown sugar. The taste brings in more of the same, with a very mild hint of some sort of meek pepper peeking in from the deep background. The body is a straight medium (in the process of bulking up for next week's big meet), with a light moderate carbonation and a nigh-chewy feel. Overall, a solid chocolate-ful stout, though "spicy" is almost completely absent. A bit of a disappointment for those, like me, who seek a bit of a mole-like stout, but still tasty enough for what it actually is.
