Heavily carbonated up front but fades QUICK, turning it into an underwhelming soupy mess.

Smells great but doesn't live up to the cool label or name.

Black liquid, tan head, over half an inch. Aroma wasn't spicy, was more spice rack. Kinda felt like a blend of belgian cola.

Eeek, more spice rack and cola in the taste. Wore me down. Where is the mole? This beer should be served in 1oz tasters only.

12 oz. can (as pictured) brought back in a Make-Your-Own 6 pack from Denver.
Pours opaque black, with a foamy dark tan head. Foams slowly fades away, no lace.
Smell is of roasted malt and chili peppers, not super strong but its there for sure.
Taste is much the same, with good stout base of charred malt, cocoa or coffee are pretty light, then chili pepper at the end.
There is a mild amount of pepper heat that grows with each taste, but not so mush that it burns or becomes too overpowering.
Lower level of carbonation, slightly thin and not really creamy, medium bodied mouth feel.
Overall, this is a pretty good beer, delivers as expected without being over the top chili heat.

I don't have the most refined pallet in the world but I really found the taste disorienting. Not in a particularly bad way however.
