Our third anniversary beer up-sizes Chocolate Sombrero, using extra ancho chile and adding chipotle pepper. We aged the brew 100% in Wild Turkey and Heaven Hill bourbon barrels. May it leap onto your palate majestically, like a luchador who flies into the ring from atop the highest rope.

Bottle to snifter. Pours deep black with a big beige head. Aroma of vanilla, bourbon, chocolate and some smokey wood. Taste is creamy sweetness, excellent bourbon, chocolate, faint peppers. Super smooth mouthfeel. This is great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours pitch black. Aroma is of bourbon, vanilla, roasty malts, but no peppers. But then again this is a bottle that has aging for over 2 years now. Nice and heavy mouth feel with a little bit of a bubblyness to is. Flavors are of roasted malts, bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, and a little heat. VERY nicely balanced. Leaves a sweeter yet heated bourbon aftertaste. This bottle has aged beautifully.

On tap at the Sanctuary. Dark pour. Starts out sweet, dark chocolate flavors. I donít really get the peppers. Finish is all bourbon and alcohol. A bit hot for the palate, but complex flavors.

On growler from My Friends Growler Shop. This could explain the lower rating in appearance due to low carbonation/head.

Bomber 2013 vintage. Aroma is real mild pepper at this point, barrel has mellowed but still shows. Good level of chocolate as well. They flavor is light on the spice (chipotle is mild) and shows me bakers chocolate and mild bourbon in the backend. Carbonation is mildly creamy and soft. The pepper has a very weak hint of heat. Very nice but maybe should have been opened about 6 months ago, that being said, still really nice.

Pitch black tiny dark brown head that faded fast. Smells spicy as all giddyup.Lots of sweet chocolate, faint raisin and port wine with a heavy rye whiskey. This is a little thinner than expected. tons of spice but the pepper doesnít linger. This is chocolate for miles. just sweet, nutty like peanut, walnut and cocoa. Whiskey finish, lends a sweet dried fruit and cashew with simple syrup and rye. So glad this isnít really spicy.

A tasty, full-bodied chocolate stout from the creative minds of Clown Shoes Brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

0.65l bottle from what has to be my secret santa. Just canít pinpoint whom it was... Anyhow, thanks! Looks really nice in the glass this with a thick and really oily black pour. It actually can bear some resemblance of pouring oil in a glass, and itís leaving a nice big kinda brown looking head thatís leaving lacings. Smells absolutely amazing this! You immediately get the chili fruitiness here. Itís sweet, thereís vanilla and sweet dark chocolate blessed with something that reminds me more of whisky than bourbon. A lovely lovely nose indeed. Yup, itís as thick, chewy and viscous in the mouth as it was on the pour. A lovely mouthfeel with a nice prickling small bubbled carbonation level. The spicy chili is slowly warming the throat while chocolate, roasted makes, whisky and a slight alco warmth just tickles on my taste buds. Itís not to hot on the spices, but itís really fruity and slightly smoky-warming. I get lots of marzipan towards the end and some wood is also present. This is a flavor bomb. Huge thanks for the bottle! 26.06.2014

October 15, 2014 - bottle from AV3. Dark brown pour with nice head that lasted for a bit. Aroma was bourbon, chocolate, spice and peppers. Taste was a nice balance of the heat, chocolate, sweetness and spice, though the bourbon is the most dominate flavor.
