presario (4591) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 4, 2014
One of my favourite chocolate, cinamon, vanilla, chile beers! Black with lighter brown foam. Light fragrant aroma is very nice. Aroma has notes of all the advertised goodies and a light fruitiness. Starts like candy with a light spice kick, chocolate finish and more spice in the aftertaste.

reebtogi (4074) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 1, 2014
650ml bottle pours black in color with a massive light brown head that retains well and leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aromas of chocolate and vanilla with hints of cinnamon and chilies. Taste is a chocolate malty sweetness with hints of cinnamon and vanilla, a light citrus hop bitterness and a bit of warmth from the chilies in the finish. Medium to heavy bodied with nice carbonation. This brew is well balanced and very tasty. Highly recommended

Garrold (1113) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2014
Tap at Brewdog, Nottingham. Just about black. Silky, tan head. Chocolate. Booze. Dark fruit. Taste is dark chocolate sweet. Some dryness. Light bitterness, too. Surprisingly light palate. Dark, roast dryness on the finish, with a little heat, right in the close. Nice beer.

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.

daleharshman (884) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 9, 2014
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.
