12 ounce can purchased from Total Wine in Rancho Cucamonga for $2.99. As I poured this out of the can into my tulip glass, it poured a dark black pour with a chestnut head. The aroma had initial black pepper, chocolate, and spicy peppers. Taste is initially bittersweet chocolate with just a hint of peppers. I don’t really get any cinnamon from this though. Medium lively carbonation with a dry finish. Overall very enjoyable.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
tan head that lingers. aroma of tart yeast, roasts, pepper and woody vegetation. Starts with flavor of coffee than goes into a subtle heat and finishes a tart lactic sour taste and chocolate aftertaste. Effervescent and light on the palate for a beer of it’s class definitely reminiscent of the Belgian Stout style. It’s much taster than other Belgian Stouts I’ve had. The spices and chocolate really help flesh out the flavor spectrum that exists between tart yeastiness and dark malt.

high marks for aroma and appearance - aroma has many things - nice chocolate, coffee, maybe smoke or roasted. dark dark pour. palate is thin for style/ what aroma is like. too much carbonation in taste. this would be better with much lower carbonation - still good, slightly creamy - vanilla, with all of the aromas in taste. good brew with much happening.

Can poured a back hue w/ big fizzy tan head fully diminishing. Big chocolate aroma. Initial flavor is moderate sweet with a moderate bitter finish of short duration. Tastes are roasted malts, chocolate, bold roast coffee, cinnamon, clove, and a light heat of chipotle after the finish. Full bodied, soft carbonation, light syrupy mouthfeel, and light warmth in the finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Pours black with a large brown head. Moderate retention and no lace. Soft roasted aroma and flavor with a touch of chocolate. Minimal spice or chilies. Medium body, soft carbonation and a short finish. This came off flawed to me. Disappointing.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Strong herb filled aroma accompanied by chocolate. Black in color with a thin foam rim. Unique, well rounded flavors of cocoa, chile’s and black patent malt upfront. Undertones of herbs, cinnamon, brown sugar, toffee and other funky unidentifiable flavors. Overall, very complex flavor with strong alcohol and chocolate notes. I’d give this an A rating.
