the chili and cinnamon itself would be nice but somehow the combination with this stout creates a mix that isnt really that pleasant. TAste is a stout with a bit of extra but nothing special either. Still a nice beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark brown almost black color with a medium tan head that leaves spotty soapy lacing. Smells of chipotle peppers, roasted malt, Belgian yeast, and dark chocolate. Tastes of coffee, cinnamon, dark chocolate, Belgian yeast, and, chipotle peppers, with a black pepper finish. Mouthfeel is thin and watery with good carbonation. This is a pretty good Belgian stout. I like the added chipotle peppers. Too bad its a one time limited beer.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a thick, opaque, black with a large, lasting, foamy brown-sugar head. Aroma of cinnamon, mild chile, subtle dark chocolate. Flavor of roasted malt, chocolate dialed up a bit, cinnamon quite subtle, and Belgian yeast contributing only subtly. The mix of flavors is really nice, nothing overpowers. Excellent.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2013 Pours dark with a brownish head that dissipates after a bit. The carbonation propels the aroma of chocolate, toasted malts, and spices. The taste is similar: chocolate, toasted malts, spices, cinnamon, and faintly coffee. Palate is somewhat thinner than I expected giving it a "dry stout" kind of feel. Overall, it’s easy drinking and the aroma and taste upfront are interesting/different.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This what i describe as a’’flat cocacola’’ beer. Looks beautiful. Pretty tight on the nose. Taste is however packed with flavour. Distinct charred notes. Smooth finish with a slight bitterness. Medium bodied.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 fl oz / 355mL can into a pint glass. Served cold.
Aroma: There is a lot of chocolate and roasted malt going on here. Some nice coffee ground smell. A tiny bit of smoke, even. Really smells quite good.
Appearance: This is a handsome, handsome brew. Completely opaque black/dark brown, with a solid, frothy dark brown head. Not tan, not off-white, but dark, dark brown. Handsome.
Taste: Good golly miss molly there is a lot of flavor here. Lots of chocolate up front on the arrival. Transitions to some spice and smoke, and ends on smoky pepper. The can mentions something about cinnamon--maybe it’s in there, but it doesn’t stand out to me really. The chipotle pepper is definitely there though. Great stuff!
Palate: Full bodied. Moderate-long finish.
Overall: What a nice find! The contrast between the bittersweet chocolate and the roasty smoky pepper is something you have to try!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smells a little chocolaty, a little like coffee, but kind of funky too, I think from the pepper. Pours deep black, can’t see at all through it even when held up to the sun. Tastes a little smoky, bitter finish, overall kind of weak.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Interesting blend of chocolate and chipotle. Wonderful aroma; better than the flavor. Crazy foamy at first. From a can into a pint/stout glass.
