look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

a reddish dark brown pour with a finger of head which quickly diminished.
smells spicy, yet sweet. cinnamon, cloves, chipotle peppers, chocolate, cedar

a sweet hit of spices up front (nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves) followed by chipotle spicyness which isn't very strong. the sweet chocolate overtone makes this an excellent balanced beer.

medium body +, low carbonation with a nice warm feeling.

this is an excellent beer. i just wish it was a tad bit more carbonated, but other than that, loved it.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: no head on a near completely black body with little light getting through forming a red tinge.

S: chiles, chocolate, roasted malt and hint of vanilla.

T: the one is very complex. cola, cinnamon, grass, vanilla, chile, chocolate, smokey, roasted malts. This one is all over the place.

M: medium body, thin for what I was wanting/expecting and moderate to high carbonation.

Overall: this is a very disorganized beer. the parts are good however the sum of the parts are off.

look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours with a small head of tan foam on top of an opaque, black body. The head disappears rapidly and leaves no lace.

S - Chocolate, smoke, chilies, and cinnamon with a touch of roasted grain.

T - Dark bread with a touch of cola up front. Some chocolate and sweet toffee in the middle. Finishes with lots of vanilla, cinnamon, clove, and smoky chilies and a lingering heat.

M - Medium body, moderately low carbonation, and a dry finish.

D - It sounds good, smells good, and the individual notes of the flavor profile are nice but it just doesn't come come together. It is kind of disjointed and the base beer just isn't big enough to deal with the spices. I would love to try an imperial version of this beer, but I don't really like it as it is.

Pours mahogany with 2 fingers of mocha colored head. Average head retention & some lacing

S: Chocolate, vanilla, white pepper & slight smokeyness

T: Mocha, cayenne pepper, carob, vanilla, & faint woody hops up front, Firey pepper & cocoa as this warms. Finishes with vanilla/mocha sweetness, some white & serano pepper,plus just a bit of herbal bitterness mixing with some cola& coffee grounds flavor

MF: Light/medium bodied, slight carbonation,

A very good chile beer, wish I bought more than a sixer...

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A - Poured out a jet-black color with a one-finger, light brown head of bubbly foam. It left sticky rings of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of chocolate, chillies and a touch of cinnamon. So good.

T - Just a good as the aroma. Roasted malt, chocolate, spicy chillies and some cinnamon. Great balance of heat and sweet.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry, clean finish.

O - This is a really good beer. It's not a sixer I'd want to session all night but one or two really hits the spot.

This beer came essentially flat and tastes like someone pored a little stout into and old cola. It is somewhat interesting and does have some spice and heat but to me just not enough stout flavor to really qualify it as a stout. I usually love everything from SKA so I was really excited when I saw this in the store and did not hesitate to buy it. Really disappointing.
