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.

Bottle. Pours black with thick chocolate shake like creme colored head. Bitter chocolate aroma over mild carbonation. Light chocolate flavor with some coffee flavors too. A mild spicy bite on the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Taste, good stuff. A chocolate stout I can hardly wait for my next bottle to fill a tall and frosty glass. :-) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 oz bottle. The pour is a nice dark brown/light black with a good sized dark khaki head that falls down to a film, leaving some pretty good lace. The aroma is big on chocolate malts and a good roast. There is a little chili heat there on the back end, but it's not too complex. There is a little bitterness that comes with it as well. The flavor is a little better. There is a definitely cocoa and dry butter toast present and on the back end, the heat of the Chilis really make a statement. They slowly warm from the back and just compliment so good. There isn't that drowning pepper type of flavor that had turned me off of these types of stouts. This is good. The mouth feel is thin and runny with some light carbonation that helps, but not enough. Still doesn't coat well. The aftertaste is a little light, but warm with a lingering dry chocolatey chili flavor. I like it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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
