Darwenus (530) - Virginia, USA - MAY 31, 2014
A rich, sweet, spicy stout. This isn’t something I’d want every day, but I it’s a nice diversion. It pours dark black with little head, the aroma is chocolate, cinnamon, coffee, peppers. The chocolate malt dominates the flavor, some vanilla and spice in the finish. I picked up on the peppers in the aftertaste.

Kinda queasy about this one because I have been burned by chili infused brews before, no pun intended. But leave your reservations on the ringside, this Nacho Libre Chocolate Stout is exceptional. Coal black body with mocha colored head bases a nose of dark chocolates, sweet spices, and faint peppers. At first taste the beer is a classic heavy stout with coca nibs, cinnamon, and burnt sugars. Give it some time and the chili becomes more pronounced but not to the point of off-putting. Smooth, velvety mouthfeel and pleasing spicy sweet aftertaste is the one, two, three count for this beer. A real winner.

minutemat (1305) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2014
Keg @ Brewdog, Birmingham. Pours dark / black, roasty aroma, prominent thick chocolate malts in the taste with the booze very much present and accounted for. Enjoyed with a bar of Dairy Milk which actually improved the taste immeasurably.

Bottle from Plonk (Dec 2013). Oily black, minimal creamy brown head, aroma is a bit boozy, chocolate, stewed prunes, candy sugar, molasses, barely-there chilli, long sweet boozy finish, full body, oily slick texture. Excellent.

jonno (2231) - JAPAN - MAY 12, 2014
Very busy beer - vanilla, nutmeg, dark chocolate, pitted fruit, chilli with an oily body. Perhaps not as complete a beast as I like in my Impys, but still a very fun and decadent beer.

beermearjay (33) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2014
Bottle into tulip glass. Pours dark brown to black, nice fading tan head, tight bubbles. Super creamy roasted malt religious incense. Moderately sweet, vanilla, cinnamon, mild bourbon, superb green chili maybe, nothing jumps out over the individual tastes making this a very smooth, but very drinkable stout! Thumbs up.
