3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
pours black with a thick tan head. aroma is chocolate, coffee, and vanilla. the cinnamon and chilis are not apparent in the aroma. flavor is raw cocoa, vanilla, expresso and the chilis and cinnamon are there but very slight. medium body, medium carbonation and a bitter finish.alchohol is well hidden is this 9 percent beer. I find this to be well balanced. seen others criticizing the lack of chilis and cinnamon in this brew but I think that them not taking center stage in this beer is a good thing. love my stouts and I definitely think we have a real good one here

Really unimpressed. Thin stout with very little going on. I get no ancho, no cinnamon, no vanilla, just strange fake tasting chocolate.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
650ml bottle. Darkest brown, quasi black colour with small, creamy fairly lasting, moderately lacing, tan head. Dark malty aroma has a roasty touch, a nose-biting, peppery chili touch, hints of chocolate, molasses. Taste is dark malty in moderately sweet, minimally tart and dry characteristic, peppery notes of chili, chocolate, coffee, molasses; full body, extremely long lasting finish with chocolately notes, some chili, sticky palate. Really intense, peppery, chocolately, maybe not everyone’s taste but mine.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good brew. Espresso aroma. Chocolate notes. Hint of barley wine. Thin head. Smooth wash down. Although there are peppers in the brew they are vague and not overpowering. Simple but ultimately satisfying.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Chocolate spice! Malty goodness! This is a stout with a Mexican twist. Kind of like a stout version of Mexican coffee.
