While I appreciate a good Mexican chocolate, I feel they missed the mark here. Pours dark with almost no head. Aroma is of roasted malts with hints of alcohol and spice, but no chocolate. Flavor is not too different, having more vanilla and spice combine in a somewhat medicinal way. Not what I was looking for. Finish is fairly clean.

Bottle, bought@Kihoskh, Cph. Pours deep opaque black with a small, creamy, beige film head. Aroma has deep chocolate, nuts, light chili and cocoa. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of fat chocolate, cocoa, hazelnuts, vinious, vanilla, a slight warming touch.

RRistow12 (634) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - APR 14, 2016
Tasted from bottle. Aroma is big time chocolate with some spicey notes. Taste is very well balanced with mild bitterness. Excellent flavor of chocolate, vanilla and cinnamon. Notice a little chili flavor on the finish. Very well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kauge (1451) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 13, 2016
Bottle shared by martjoobolut, thanks! Bottled 11.2016. Subtle chili and chili chocolate, sweet, bitterish finish, liqorice-like moments. Soft, mellow carbonation. Dryish roast. Lovely stuff, I really like this. Downing the whole bottle would probably make the chili hit a whole lot harder.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2016 Bottle shared by Mart. Dark brown beer, very small tan head. Nose is coffee, chocolate, vanilla, a small smidgen of chili. Flavor is chili, coffee and coffee beans, dark and milk chocolate. Middle to late finish is licorice, coffee and a more pronounced chili hit, citric hops in the finish. Nice one.

thegreenrooster (3895) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 6, 2016
Pour is a complete black with a large tan head. Aroma is a strong chocolate with a nice roasted malt. Flavor is rich roasted malt with more of a nice cocoa nibs bitterness. Nice thick mouthfeel that coats the tongue as this goes down. Not getting much of a chili presence, also not getting any alcohol presence. Where I don’t get much from the chilies you get the chocolate used in spades. Quite flavorful and a solid stout.
