WVHouseofBeer (939) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 25, 2014
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.

Dedollewaitor (14690) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2015
Bottle @ Kihoskh, Copenhagen. Pours black with a creamy beige head. Roast, tar, a hint of cinnamon and vanilla. Roasted and bitter close to burnt flavor and finish. Smooth, soft and sticky! Good stuff!

Plovmand (7050) - Helsinge, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2015
Bottle at home. It pours opaque black with a creamy beige head. Dark roasted aroma with chocolate notes along with light coffee. Light vanilla. The flavor is sweet roasted malty with chocolate notes and vanilla. Light cinnamon. Only a whiff of the chili in the finish. Not as complex as the description tells but it’s a very nice Impy Stout.

Benzai (10383) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2015
Bottle [from trade with mista] @ home. Opaque very dark brown to black color, medium sized lightly creamy brown colored head that lasts for a decent while and leaves good lacing. Aroma is malts, dark malts, dark chocolate, lightly a hint of liquor somehow. Taste malts, moderately bitter, unfortunately I only lightly dark chocolate. Doesn’t have the depth one would expect from the aroma. Nice beer though, just not top notch.

badgerben (4629) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 10, 2015
Black color with a medium head. Light spiced aroma, slightly smoky. A bit of vanilla. Dry, chocolate flavor. Very mild spice, only shows up towards finish. Full body.

MaBeer1972 (1467) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 7, 2015
Bottle from Julio’s. Poured into a tulip glass. A brownish-black brew with a frothy coffee colored head. Sweet malty aroma with a hint of spice. Flavor is quite chocolaty with a little heat in the middle, followed by lingering toffee notes. Interesting stuff.

nickd717 (3671) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 6, 2015
Draft at Steins. Darkest brown in color with a small tan head. The aroma is sweet and stouty, chocolatey with vanilla and a hint of spice. The flavor is rather sweet with a slight cinnamony spice note. Not many IBUs in this mother. Very smooth and slick mouthfeel with low carbonation. Good but not a standout in the style.

degbert (1398) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 3, 2015
Bottle. Pours a dark, opaque brown/black with garnet highlights and a mixed-grain, tan, creamy, lacy head. Nose is baking chocolate, coffee, cinnamon, vanilla, chile, booze, and pumpernickel. Rich chocolate, vegetal chile, coffee, and vanilla up front; quite a harmonious balance. The heat and smoke doesn’t really kick in until the back of the palate, past the coffee and cream; it’s a smooth transition, and it’s really very well handled. Mild for as high an ABV as it’s carrying. Finish is long and smoky with more chocolate. Well done.

sudomorph (927) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2015
Bomber Bottled 9/11/13. Pours a near black with a thin tan head. Aroma has smooth notes of roast, cola, dark fruits, caramel, slight coffee, and faint cinnamon and vanilla. Taste is balanced. Dark chocolate, roasted malts, caramel, slight dark fruits and vanilla, cola, cinnamon, and a mild chili heat at the end of a coffee bitter ending. Medium-full body with a low-medium carbonation. Thicker mouth feel with a slightly dry finish. Overall a nice stout. Smooth flavours of roasty, cinnamon, vanilla, and caramel with a slight chili heat at the end. Probably a bit flat.

Notes are a bit light on this one, but I know that it was good. Not one I need to buy again though.
