Sweet, with some heat in the finish but really nothing in between. Okay. No need to have another.

12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. A little disappointed with this one...
Light on taste and body. Could have used a lot more.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rich deep brown coloured body with a slight cola coloured glow at the bottom and a thinnish, half a centimetre tall rich brown head. Aroma of milk, chiles, chocolate, roasted malt, earth, alcohol, mushrooms, soy sauce and a hint of plums. Medium-bodied; Strong roasted malt kick at first with a touch of noticeable heat from the jalepenos and a very meaty, earthy taste soon afterwards with the chocolate and peppers battling it out. Aftertaste shows a more balanced flavour of sweetness from the chocolate, heat from the jalepenos, roastiness from the malt and a good balanced earthiness to mellow them all out. Overall, an interesting beer that is fairly well balanced through the nuances and turns out to be a good beer, especially for the style, which seems to have something askew in each variant. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Crystal City Wine Shop in Arlington (12th Street Location), literally under my place in Washington on 05-March-2014 for US$2,29 sampled at home here upstairs on 03-October-2014.

Bottle, Wine Warehouse. Pours black & thick. Dusting of a head. Smells of dark chocolate, dust, and dirt. Tastes like chocolate candy, yuck. Dirt. Spicy finish. Might be good if the chocolate didn’t taste so much like cheap candy.

Fuego is not a lie. The spice comes out real hot on the aftertaste. Pour is dark, beer seems a little thin. Aroma and the up front taste is strong of chocolate.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a decent dark brown color with light red hues and a tan head. Aroma is light chocolate, earthy smoke, chile peppers, mild sweetness, smells solid....then. Taste drops off a lot, chipotle pepper, tootsie roll sweetness, red hot candy, artificial sweetness, some light chocolate notes, ehhh.

Whoa! Jeckyl & hide! The pour is ok - dark w/ a rapidly dissipating head that doesn’t leave lacing. The aroma has some nice chocolate notes. The taste is watery smooth upfront & then burns in the finish w/ the chipotle kick. Too thin & uneven to make this work. Not really feeling it!
