3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Pours nearly black with a medium sized, tan head leaving an excellent lacing. Nose of slightly roasted malt, chocolate, various spices and chili notes. Sweet flavor with a spicy touch and a dry and quite bitter finish with a soft chili bite. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft CO2. Beer, chili and chocolate: A great blend. ★★★★

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark thick an inky in look with a strange spiced smell. It tastes almost smoked dark and spiced with a rich oily texture with a little fizz. More stout like then I was expecting. This is an okay experiment for sure. Certainly a unique twist that is much less of a disaster then the ingredient list suggests it could be.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very dark brown with a medium light brown head that fades kind of fast but leave good lacing. Nose is chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, chili. Smoke. Not as "mole-like" as one could hope but still pretty nice. Taste is not that sweet but still moderately with a moderately light bitterness. Roasted malt, chili heat, light lactose, chocolate. Body is medium, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel is pretty smooth. Bitter finish, maybe from some hops or maybe just the intense roasted malt? Almost ashy. Spices are well dosed but do enhance the perceived alcohol level. A pretty good chili stout, I don’t think I would go back to it, though. I believe it could have been much better!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a special one. Nice dessertbeer. Full of bittersweet chocolate and pleasantly spicey. Don’t have a clue what the combination of almond milk, black beans and avocado leaves normally tastes like but here it works really well i guess. Weird but very pleasant experience.
