Bottle 146 of 217. FYI if you're fortunate enough to open one of these let it sit a little after the first sip. Starts off as a chunky I integrated beer. Good parts, but no cohesion. With a little air all the parts blend ltogether

Smell - initially smells like port. Fig and grape. Pepper comes through on the back of the smell initially. When it warms up a great combination of it all.

Taste - same story as the smell.

750mm bottle from the batch released in October, 2014.

A - Beer gushed out when the bottle was opened. Lost about 1/3 of it. Thanks, FFF! Very dark brown/black with tinges of red and orange.

S - Sweet. Overripe fruit, port, plums. Not much noticeable chili aroma.

T - Fruity sweet. Lots of port flavors. Just a hint of chili on the finish. Not nearly as heavily spiced as previous reviews (from previous batches) would indicate.

M - Medium bodied for the style. Carbonation is a bit low, which might be a result of the gusher when I opened the bottle.

O - Very nice. The chilies do not overwhelm like some other chili stouts. Probably a bit too much barrel for my taste at this point; this one could benefit from laying down for a year.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black body with no head. Kinda lifeless.

Smell - Lots of peppers. And not much else. A little bit of milk chocolate.

Taste - Light barrel, but it's all peppers. Lightly chocolatey. Spicy finish.

Mouthfeel - Highly carbonated and kinda spicy.

Overall - This just isn't a very good beer.

S - Smells like raspberry jalapeños as there is a Raspberry port up front and then there are earthy jalapeños in the backend up front 2.5

T - Raspberry and chocolate before waves of jalapeño comes thru. It has some heat but tastes just like an earthy, jalapeño flavor.

M - Medium body with carbonation and yet an earthy presence from the jalapeños

O- This could have been good if it had some heat and chili spice but instead this was just overpowered by a strong jalapeno flavor which when combined with the sweetness of the Port was just an odd flavor that I didn't enjoy.

Bottle 199 of 217

Pours an oily reddish hued black with discernible transitions in color. Head is minimal.

Nose is unmistakable port. Big grapey sweetness , red fruits, and lingering chiles in the periphery. The base is pretty much obliterated on the smell.

Taste follows suit....massive port presence, little semblance of any Moloko milk stout other than the thin-ish base beer, Very fruit driven...milk chocolate covered raspberries. Finish is a tidal wave of spicy peppers. Heat bites at the tongue and lingers hot at the back of the throat, with the intensity rising as the beer warms. Even as a lover of chiles, the spice is a beast.

Mouthfeel resembles more port than stout. Strange in that many parts of this beer really shine but the sum of the parts falls a bit short in the flat port feel, with no resemblance of a stout.

A port chile driven machine....those wary of port or chiles should stay far away, as should anyone expecting anything tasting of Moloko. A fun try...happy to have tried this...but a weird beer. This guy walks on the other side of the block, says Kyle.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from a 750 ml into a Half Acre snifter.

A- pours near black with a 1 finger tan head. No lacing.

S- big dark fruits, light chocolate, and peppers

T- sweet dark fruits, vinous notes and chile peppers

M- medium body and carbonation. Smooth with spice.

O- surprising beer with nice dark fruit and peppers
