This is the BEST chili I have ever had! I have made it twice now in the past two weeks! Eventhough the flavor of the first batch tasted great, it was a bit too spicy for my palate. Therefore, the second batch I only used one habenero and one annaheim pepper. I found that when I reduced the peppers, the chili is just a bit too sweet. I will 1/2 the brown sugar the recipe calls for the next time I make it with less peppers. Also, the first time, I didn't have a dark beer on hand and used a domestic beer. The second time, I used New Castle and WHAT A DIFFERENCE!! As others have suggested, I used 2 tablespoons of wasabi instead of the 1 that it calls for which really pumps up the deliciousness of the recipe! I served this last batch with some friends, topped with cheddar cheese, a dollop of sour cream, and slices of warm french bread. Fifteen minutes later, there wasn't a drop left!

This chili is amazing! First of all, my wife hates chili, ooops, I meant Hates chili with a capital 'H.' I had some time one day to pull this together, and not only did I love it, but she did too. With the beer and coffee, it adds some original taste that makes the chili completely unique. It does take a little time to prepare for the first time, but it was well worth it.

This is the best chili I've ever tasted and I have tasted A LOT of chili. When making this recipe, I was a little concerned about how much chili powder was in the recipe, but it turned out to be just the right amount when blended with all the other spices and chili peppers. My health-conscious boyfriend did the shopping for this recipe and he substituted the spicy italian sausages with spicy turkey sausages and ground beef with ground turkey making this recipe delicious AND extra healthy. I used guiness for the dark beer, which my roommate was not too thrilled about since I stole one of his bottles, but he raved about the chili afterwards. Thanks Aaron for sharing the recipe.
