This beer is malty brown. The pepper flavor is throughout the flavor palate. From when it first hits your mouth and all the way down the back of the throat. It is a good beer, and not what I was expecting. I have had better pepper beers, but this was a nice surprise.

Pours pitch black with a thumb of dark mocha head. Nose is loaded with burnt grains, chocolate, leather and toffee with hints of vegetal greens and earthy hops. One of the best chili beers I've ever had with the imperial stout coming off the top with dark chocolate, burnt toast, leafy green hops, molasses and black licorice. The heat comes through on the finish blasting you with loads of heat, but not overwhelming. A mind blowing brew for the style, and an incredible base beer that would easily stand amongst the best on its own. If you like chili beers, this is guaranteed not to disappoint.

Bad azz imperial stout. Appearance with an aggressive pour was a smallish, rust brown, thick, soon to settle head, a little lace, and an opaque brown black color. Aroma is black patent malt, roast, coffee, cocoa, fruit. Flavor's like nose, very slight sweetness, good bitterness, enough tart, peppers both up front and lingering, but in a very balanced controlled, pleasing measure. Excellent round, full, rich body with a happy warmth that is indiscernible whether from alcohol or peppers. Almost an easy drinking beer for being such a heavy hitter. Great stuff!

Poured from a bomber. Deep color with a thin foamy head. Smell is chocolate malt, mirrored on the taste. The pepper comes out slightly on the finish with a lingering heat light on the back of the throat. This is what I want out of a pepper beer: a little heat and some added spice, but not an overpowering flavor. Very well done.

A truly amazing stout, rich, viscous, fragrant and the blend of sweet chocolate and coffee malts and the burn of the ghost peppers make for a complex, multifaceted brew. The flavor of the chilies is not as overpowering as Stone's Crime & Punishment duo, but makes for a nuanced taste experience.
