2.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Dark black pour and as I poured, I got a sweet bitter chocolate with a hint of smokey. A quick bitter taste as I first sipped and a strong roast, oaky wood flavor. A burnt bitter lingering taste. Not a top stout for me

Near black with no head. Cocoa and smoke with mild coffee aroma. Not much Chipotle in flavor but it shows up as a Warming sensation on the palate. Roasty and coffee notes. Lightish palate. Some chalkiness.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
650 ml bottle from bev4less. Pours a dark brown color with a small beige head that has poor retention. The aroma is weak and somewhat indistinct with traces black fruits and cardboard. The taste was watered down coffee, mocha and the lightest hint of peppers. The palate was thin and the carbonation was prickly. Finished short and unmemorable. Overall: I usually love chili beers but this just did not do it for me.

Good ending night as you pass out ? Leaves a good cocoa flavor in residual flavor. Like drinking a night cap

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours very dark with a half o finger head. Aroma is smokey, coffee, some chocolate but not too much chipotles. In the taste I get some roasted coffee, smoke and a hint of chipotles in the end but not overpowering. No alcohol feel on this one. The body is medium to light, more like a Porter that a Stout. Overall, is a good beer but needs more complexity. More Coffee and chipotles would do it for me.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours black, and has a rim of light tan foam and quite a bit of clarity. Smells of herbal hops, some some, some soily dust, bits of coffee and some cardboard. Taste is empty, watered down stout with toasted and roated malts, some coffee, a little too much smoke flavor, some hints of coconut and weedy. Mouth is empty with alittle too hi carb and an off dry finish. Okay beer. My wife really dug it so she drank most of the bottle.
Serving type: bottle

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice cola brown color with off white ring. Lots of chocolate and heat in the nose. Toasty malts, chilis, and bitter coffee. Pretty well balanced. A little to carbonated for me.

I didn't notice chilies. Very very subtle. Toasted prominent. No aroma nice lasting head. In general not to exciting.

Bottle pour. Great coffee aroma blended with a kick of heat at the end. A near perfectly blended coffee pepper stout. Ha!
