Inspired by an ancient Mayan recipe, Ilkley Brewery has created an extraordinary Stout. It is velvety smooth, bittersweet, and has a subtle smoky fire in its belly. The Mayan is a Chipotle Chocolate Stout, dare you take it on?

500ml bottle from Beer Huis, Ossett - rich black body, lacing thick tan head. Nose is a hypnotic milk chocolate aroma, very much like a Cadbury’s Fruit and Nut. Taste is sweet and smoky, a little peppery bitterness at the end. Not as spicy as I’d expected, but enjoyed this immensely.

500ml bottle from Beer-Ritz, Leeds. Pours dark brown, swiftly dissipating tan head. Smells like chocolate milk! Tastes like chocolate milk! Very light burn at the end. Too sweet for me.

I was a little worried about a chocolate Chipotle stout but I loved it. It’s super smooth and the chocolate stands out but after a few you can taste the Chipotle. If you want something that will surprise you. Try this beer.

Bottle from bier huis, ossett. Opaque black stout with not much head. Strong chocolate aroma with a little hint or chilli. Fantastic taste, lovely sweet chocolate start followed by fruity taste of peppers and dark malts. Final taste is slight spice from the chilli, with a tasty smoky aftertaste. Carbonation is mild and body is medium for stout. Loved this.

jbruner (2135) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUN 6, 2014
Pours an opaque black from the cask worth fluffy tan head that leaves great lace. Aroma is all chocolate, sweet and dark interplaying nicely. Taste follows, but add a hint of roast and a slight spicy burn on the back of the throat. Soft carbonation, creamy mouth, really easy to drink. This is superb.
