Picked up a 12 oz bottle from Binny's Downtown Chicago on 5-11-18 for $6.99. No bottle date. This must be a shelf turd as 16 oz cans are the ETB container mode these days.

Beer poured black with a decent tan head that has some okay hang time.

Nose is cocoa forward with no other discernable adjuncts.

Taste is cocoa forward over a huge malt base. Finish is the chili warmth which is imparted pretty well.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and very smooth.

Overall a pretty good variant with a nice use of the chili.

Great spicy chili flavor that makes itself a presence but doesn't overwhelm. Very nice underlying imperial stout flavor. Overall a great beer, definitely will look to purchase again.

Pours pitch black, virtually impervious to light. Nice mocha head slowly fades to a ring around the glass that sticks around for a while. Big aroma of burnt malt., not my favorite aroma. Rich and creamy, big and flavorful. Charred caramel comes to mind, lots of roasted malt flavor, bittersweet chocolate, espresso; chili makes itself known upon swallow. It really hits the back of my throat. This is quite full bodied, very smooth and not too sweet. Great balance. Overall another great Jesus beer from Evil Twin.

This beer was poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass. Pours out extremely black. Pitch black and has a crown that is one finger width and dark caramel in color. Dense and held tight. The nose lets you know the peppers are there but not quite like the taste and feel do. The peppers are strong all the way through. They definitely achieved a pepper beer. And it was great to me. But that could be because I love peppers.

Served in a goblet from the bottle.

Appearance: Thick black body which is brown tinted with medium bubbles to the body. Dark tan head rising just over a finger's length above the frame settling after two or three sips. Almost zero lacing smooth beautiful look after the first sip.

Smell: cold the beer is subtle, warm it's a chocolate-espresso bomb into the nostrils.

Taste: Complex spicy malts, molassses and cocoa which smash almost anyone's palates.
The spicyness might overwhelm some connoisseurs but taking Sriracha sauce on top of chocolate, brown sugar and espresso might not be for everyone but I wouldn't change it for the world.

Mouth: full body with medium carbonation and an after taste that pairs well with anything.

Overall: Nice pick up, if am ever so lucky to see to again I will grab at least two or three bottles. Think of a meal and a dessert all at once....Salud!

Pours a modest 1/4 finger head; retention is decent. Brew is a lovely black, the head a very dark tan.

Some chili on the nose, which takes some digging to find through the thick roasty notes common to Evil Twin's big stouts: molasses, licorice, coffee, and burnt caramel.

Flavor immediately hits on all cylinders: chili, chocolate, coffee, brown sugar, and roast up front; heat in the middle, building to a moderate strength (for a beer); ashy/char finish.

Smooth brew, showing some lingering chest heat on the finish. Lip-smackingly thick, chewy, and sticky.

As far as pepper stouts go, the best ones balance more sweetness with the heat. This one has a wonderful level of the latter, but it comes across ashier, roastier, and overall more "flat" (for lack of a better term) than my favorite pepper stouts. I think this is a very well made brew, but I personally won't be revisiting it.

I don't see a bottle date listed.

Appearance: The beer pours oily black with a decent sized brown head. The head doesn't last long but it leaves some creamy islands and a ring. There is no lacing. It looks great for such a high ABV beer (12% as indicated by the label).

Aroma: There is a light aroma of cocoa.

Taste: It has a very nice cocoa flavor up front with a bit of woody character. This wood flavor intensifies on its way to the back of the palate where it is met with a bitter charred flavor and some alcohol.

Mouthfeel: It has a mild bitterness that comes from the grain and just a touch of alcohol. The beer is full bodied and smooth. It is a very easy beer to drink at 12% ABV. There is a bit of heat from the beer (presumably from the chilis).

Overall: It was a bit disappointing that the beer didn't have any chili aroma or flavor. I really wouldn't recommend it to those who are looking for any flavor or aroma from chilis but at least it did have a little heat. I wouldn't buy the beer again based on the premise of chilis but it does have a nice cocoa flavor to it.

Moderate to vigorous pour yields a 3/4 inch light brown head over a dark brown, almost black, body with very little lacing. Nose of dark chocolate, milk chocolate, cocoa powder, Ovaltine, and spice. Flavors mirror aromas with the heat from the pepper coming on stronger and setting up shop in your throat! Nice, almost velvet feel and overall, not for the faint of heart. Cheers!
