4.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2014 Jet black with a light brown head. Wow. This is incredible. The nose is incredible. A mix of chocolate, smoked jalapeños, rich roasted malt, incredible cocoa nibs...and the flavor. Well the 11% is hidden incredibly well. The flavor is just the right amount of sweetness and roast. Tons of cocoa, molasses notes, just a perfect amount of smoke...an amazing stout.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Dark chocolate brown/black with a dense, fluffy head of tan. Smoky jalapeño, tangy chocolate and charred hamburger meat in the nose. There’s more chocolate in the flavor -- rich and fairly sweet. Subtle smokiness, beef, umami, Chalky chocolate hangs on the sides of the tongue. There’s no way this is 11 percent ABV. Medium body is sugary, almost creamy. Mild, silky carbonation. Smooth blend of flavors, with perfectly integrated notes of chocolate and smoke.
