JBPortland (684) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUN 16, 2014
22oz bottle pours dark brown black with 2 finger head. Nose is sweet chocolate sauce, cream, very subtle pepper spice on the long inhale. Taste is moderately creamy, bordering on oily, chocolate syrup, artifical vanilla, sublte pepper spice, mocha, sweet. Finish is sweet hershey syrup, atrificial vanilla, and mild spice. Overly sweet and light handed on the spices.

Bomber purchased sixteen months ago at Holiday Wine Cellar ($9.49). Pours mostly black (little brown around the edges) with one finger of light brown foam. AROMA full of creamy milk chocolate and creamy vanilla with additional notes of toffee and spice (cinnamon-yes, but only a hint of the chile). FLAVOR of mildy roasted malts, dark chocolate, vanilla, roasted nuts, chile (vegetal flavor but not much heat), and a little bit of the cinnamon. Flavor and finish are more roasty than sweet. High ABV is well concealed. The chile is fairly subtle here...my year-plus of aging may have mellowed it out a bit. Pretty good though not particularly complex impy...I think it could actually use a bit more sweetness (might like to see a bourbon BA version of this for the added sweetness and complexity). (400, 872)

650ml bottle from The Wine Emporium. Everything about this beer is great from the colourful label to the deep dark chocolate beer. Awesomeness in a glass.

Darwenus (537) - Virginia, USA - MAY 31, 2014
A rich, sweet, spicy stout. This isnít something Iíd want every day, but I itís 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 (1387) - 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.
