I won our office chili cookoff with this recipe. I made several changes to save going to the store. Substitutions: Course chopped beef shoulder instead of ground beef, 1 can tomato paste and 2 cans tomatoes, chicken broth instead of beef, black and white beans instead of kidney beans. I was worried about too much heat, and so left out the habernero and then added the chili mixture a little at a time to get around 2 stars. I added sugar to taste. You do not individually taste beer, coffee and wasabi, instead it all melds into a really "full" taste. While I am not that fond of chili, when tasted next to a bunch of others, it is really obvious that this receipe has very complex flavors.
