Big thanks to CaptCleveland for this one...

A: Pours a deep brown that shows red hues when held up to the light. There is about one full finger of frothy khaki colored head. The foam fades fairly quickly, and there is almost no lacing as it drinks.

S: The nose is sweet and stinging. It smells like jalapenos, caramel, coffee, toffee, and milk sugar. It's all over the place.

T: This beer is sweet to start with a nice caramel note. There is a bit of brown sugar as well. The beer gets hot and a bit bitter in the middle, with a mix of jalapenos and espresso. The finish is back to sweet with what I pick up as milk sugar.

M: Medium bodied beer. Sweet to start, hot and bitter in the middle, and finishes sweet and coating.

O: Decent beer, but it's not at all what I expected. I get almost no hazelnut, and a bunch of jalapenos even though this beer isn't brewed with them. I don't know. It's not bad, but it's not something I'd seek out again.
