The aroma is definitely dominated by the chile, not the chocolate. The flavor has both. And itís a pretty even battle. Yet, for once, I think I like the chile. The chocolate is very smooth, itís the chile that provides th e graininess.

Pours a solid black with a small brown head and lacing. It has a new nice aroma of chocolate, cinnamon, and some spice. It has a flavor of chocolate and spices up front with a spicy backbone and finding over a heavy body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz Bottle. Tasted on 11/15/14. Beer from Total Wine Lewisville, TX. Pours to a deep black color with almost no head. The aroma has notes of peppers, chocolate & cinnamon. The flavor is similar to the aroma with a thin body & some dark fruit & chili spice on the finish that lingers. The body was too thin for me & the flavors just didn't meld together as well as some other chocolate stouts I've had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nuffield (3711) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Not bad. Good dark color, some soft expressions on the palate with a little froth, but significant depth and layering in the flavors, giving both the chocolate and the hint of spices--but still, not especially spicy. Or maybe I just couldnít tell because I had this while at a church chili cookoff and there was a lot of spice going on in the chili. Doesnít feel like 9%abv. Bottle.

Sample at a local tasting event. Dark brown body with a medium head. Chocolate, cocoa and various spices. Quite nice, but maybe a bit thin on the palate.
