The perfect amount of chocolate. Doesnít overdo the chilis. Smooth, strong and not so bitter. Wish it had a bigger head. Thatís what she said.

Pour from bottle. Small head with no lacing. Nose is malt, chocolate, roasted coffee, some sweetness, mocha, some other muddley stuff. Palate is more roasty, chocolate coffee stuff with mocha and some light underlying spices. Mouthfeel is smooth, light, velvety bits with some light oxidation on the end. Light carbonation.

CapFlu (4762) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2015
Pours a mall brown head atop a black body. Nose is alcoholic and boozy. Flavour is mildly spiced, roasted malt, cocoa and vanilla. Tasty. Purchased at Metro Liquors University Heights.

Random bottle pick up. Coffee/chocolate aroma. The anchos go really well with the chocolate, cinnamon, and vanilla. Not bad for the ABV. Overall pleasantly surprised for how random of a find this is.

solidfunk (5159) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 9, 2015
Better than the unidragon and almost as good as the undead. Creamy consistency. Good balance. Roast, coffee and dark chocolate in equal proportions. Lots of flavor here. Tap at Churchkey.

MadRobin (2340) - Silver Spring, USA - JUN 3, 2015
On tap at Gilly's Craft Beer & Fine Wine in Rockville, MD. Opaque, black-brown with a thin brown head and a fairly full, but thin, layer of lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate nibs, roasted malt, berries, molasses and a anchos. Taste of chocolate nibs, roasted malt, mild jalapeños and bittersweet chocolate. Medium body and medium/low carbonization. A fine imperial stout with just enough hot pepper taste a add interest rates without playing a leading role. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kevinsenn (1434) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 2, 2015
Bottle from Jane?s Beer Store, Mountain View. Big chocolate roasty aroma. Huge dark fruit and molasses flavour. Less spice than expected. Bitter finish.

Niksko (454) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 16, 2015
Pours pitch black with a fluffy, creamy tan head. Nose is definitely some coffee, some sweet, fruity chilli notes, a subtle bit of vanilla. I donít get the cinnamon on the nose. Flavor is caramel, milk chocolate, vanilla, almost orange. Thereís just the barest suggestion of heat from the chilli, but itís definitely left a fruitiness with the spice coming in just at the tail end of the palate. Really rich and velvety smooth mouthfeel, heavy body. Pretty tasty, lovely use of the chilli.

rumproasts (4008) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 15, 2015
bottle. Near black with small head. Big chocolate malt. Light heat from the pepper. A bit of vanilla and spice. Just a tad boozy, but not bad for the ABV.

culchiem (2973) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 6, 2015
Draught. Brownish black with a tan head. Creamy milk aroma. Flavour is tangy toasted malt, spicy, chocolate with a little cinnamon. Chili spicy finish.

Chocolate malt aroma. Black body with a small tan head and sediment suspended throughout. Chocolate flavors with roasted malts and a lingering coffee bitterness. Happy Cinco de Mayo.
