Hoo Ha if you like chocolatey double stout and you like some spiced up chili peppers...this is your beer.

Chocolate, coffee, roast malts...serrano chili goodness...all magically mixed together...not to hot, but the chili note is def present and glowing in all its glory. Complex, tasty, well crafted and an obvious choice for spicy food or BBQ....Chili heads rejoice and go get some of this elixir

From a cask at the 2015 Atlanta Cask Ale Tasting.

Mild+ chili heat and moderate chili flavor.
Good balance. Rich and moderately complex, with hints of wood, coffee, and burnt toast.

Feel: Nice full body with mild heat and light carbonation.

Pours a finger and half of head on a black body.
The aroma is roasted malt, coffee and chocolate, then just a hint of fresh Serrano in the background.
The taste is milk and chocolate with enough pepper to spice it up a bit but not overwhelm it.
The texture is thicker.
Really enjoyable.

On tap at the Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.

Pours a fairly dark black, with a small half inch head, and no lacing.

Smells very strongly of pepper, spicy and zesty, with some typical, but buried stout aromas of chocolate and roasted malt.

The pepper doesn't take over in the flavor as strongly as in the aroma, but it's there. Zesty, spicy, and slightly vegetal flavors sit on top of roasted malt, a bit of smoke, and chocolate. The pepper flavor is not too spicy, it complements the strong stout flavor well.

This one sports a body of medium thickness, with a lower amount of carbonation, and a spicy and creamy mouthfeel.

A nice little twist on the regular Green Flash Double Stout, but I think I like the original better.

It burns. It burns. Yet very smooth and good.
