3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Serving: 12 oz. can from State Line Liquors. It pours black with slight ruddy highlights and a slim brown head. The nose is a odd mix of chipotle chilies, green peppers, and baker’s chocolate. The flavors follow suit with a slight earthiness coming in and a little mix of spices. Medium bodied with average carbonation a peppery finish. A little odd for my taste.

Pours pitch black with a large thick foamy brown head. Aroma of roasty malts, spices, hints of ash, cocoa and dark chocolate. Taste is smooth, sweetish, slightly roasty and spicy with a touch of cocoa, cinnamon and yeast. Finish is smooth, sweetish and slightly ashy with hints of roastiness and spices. Decent, a bit unbalanced spicy stout.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce can into a brandy snifter thanks to errl. Pours a dark brown with a tan head of foam. Very good retention. Aroma has dark bitter chocolate, some smoke, ginger, licorice, toast, and leather. Taste is more on the dark, roasty, bitter side. Long, dry finish that leaves a roasty note on the tongue that shows no sign of leaving quickly. Earthy. Nicely done.

12oz can poured into glass. This was a very nice stout, and out of a can which I’m always jazzed about. Would have like more chilies and cinnamon spice though, it was just too subtle for me.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours opaque black with a medium dark brown head and good lacing. Aroma is coffee, cigarettes, dark roasty malts, spices, cinnamon. Flavor is the same, with a touch of chili, but no real head. Light sweet, light bitter, light spicy finish. Medium body, bubbly carbonation, creamy mouthfeel. Not bad, not amazing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can from ales by mail
Ruby tinged super dark brown with lacing of tan head. Chocolate, cranberry and cardamom on the nose. Medium bodied, spiky carbonation, initially chili spices, then head berries and lip tingling heat in the finish. Reminds of Mexican hot chocolate. Spice builds. Really enjoyable but a bit thin perhaps.
