Pitch black with creamy brown froth. Aroma has dark chocolate, cocoa and vanilla. Chocolate and coffee flavour, chili and vanilla. Chili vanilli... haha. Light mouthfeel but pretty flavourful for the ABV. Good spiced porter.

Pours a motor oil black with a oily brown head. Aromas of chilis, coffee, and some chocolate. Astringent chocolate and coffee flavor, not much chili.

Bottle. Black body with brown fast disappearing head. Aroma is spices cocoa vanilla hints of dried fruits and ash. Taste is dark chocolate with roasted malts and some spices and chilli. Aftertaste is roasted malts bitterness with chilli and spices. Nice but I still don’t like chilli in beer.

Very complex aroma with bread, burnt coffee and chocolate. Black color, with very minimal brown head. Taste has light sweetness, lightly bitter but not really spicy. Full body, thick feel, fizzy, long finish. I was hoping more spicyness so more chili please. This beer was not bad but I was hoping a bit more. Probably need to revisit this review later after second bottle.

cervmagpt (485) - PORTUGAL - SEP 7, 2015
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (30A). Bottle 33 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: strong cocoa aroma with slight spicy chili notes and very faint smoky notes. APPEARANCE: very dark brown to black color and opaque. average Brown head with average retention. TASTE: strong roasted flavour with notes of unsweetened cocoa with a very faint spicy hot felling and very faint vegetable flavour from chilis and avocado leaves. medium bitterness from roasted ingredients and not from hops with a dry finish. PALATE: medium-high body with medium-low carbonation. OVERALL: a stout-like beer with a lot of ingredients that are imparted by a strong rosted cocoa flavour.

Wow, strange beer. So yes a lot of stuff going on from all the extras - though its hard to really discern the contributions of black beans, almond mild and avocado leaves- perhaps a sense of not knowing what to look for. But the more familiar cocoa and chili were definitely noticeable. At first I wanted to compare this to CCB Hunahpu, and it many ways it is comparable, big thick black and chewy with a chili-chocolate tone in the finish. But I noted it lacked the rich fullness of Hunahpu, then I realized it is only a 6.6% stout/porter, so of course. Then I was impressed to realize how much body and complexity they packed into such a moderately malted beer. But in the big picture, its hard for me to call it a total success. The rich sweetness of Hunahpu helps balance out the herbals and botanicals but here, those elements create an almost astringent and herbal bitterness that detracts from the total drinkability. Poured opaque black with a big creamy mousse of a brown head

DocJitsu (1375) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - SEP 5, 2015
Pours an extremely dark brown with a lot of a reddish brown-taupe head. Coffee, oatmeal, dark chocolate, and green olive on the nose. Viscous and a little powdery on the palate. Mildly sweet up front, but gets remarkably dry 2/3 of the way through. Certainly note the cocoa. The chili notes come through but less prominently. A brief fruitiness followed by a non-offensive vegetal quality. All surrounded by a smokiness.
