I like chili beers, but there wasn't enough else here to keep this interesting/in balance. If you like a straight chili bomb this will probably work for you, but I think this would be a lot better if they dialed the chili back about 25%

Tried this beer because I loved the 70s cartoon. Wow this definitely caught me off guard. Solid imperial stout and then the heat kicks in, yummmmm. Very impressed with the smoothness and a big 12% extremely well hidden. If you're into imperial stouts and like a bit of spice, give this a try.

Definitely has hints of pepper and spiciness. It almost taste like a cocktail. It is very good and I would recommend to a first time non-stout drinker that wants to try something new. It has a tan the head that dissipates quickly leaving a oil slick like layer over the top. It is dark black in color.

Typically stout look/smell just a hint of chili powder. The heat is not over powering.

A: naturally, black-bodied, shiny and opaque, with a finger of dark mocha foam

S: roasted malt chocolates and espresso, suggestions of molasses and hints of hot chili

T: luscious bittersweet dark chocolate flavor undercut with coffee and spiked with tingly stings of ghost pepper magic... minor notes of something herbal and hoppy round off the approach

M: smooth and full-bodied, rich and satisfying, and all a-tingle with the chili pepper heat

O: a very nice Imperial stout with an appropriate amount of heat - assuming you enjoy the heat of chili peppers in beer - I do - for the style (chili stout), a sure-fire winner. Recommended.

Bottled in January, I opened the bottle in March, still very strong chili pepper taste. After snifter number two a decent heat had built up on the tongue....and I loved it.
