12oz bottle poured into snifter. Super dark pour with a very black hue. Aroma is full of chocolate, malts and fudge. Flavor is a tad boozy with hints of chocolate and slight oak. Very enjoyable and I’m glad I got to taste this.

Pours black with a small brown head that leaves minimal lacing. Aromas of coffee and dark chocolate with a hint of cinnamon? Chocolate really comes through with a slight pepper burn on the finish that lingers for a while. Not much carbonation while the mouthfeel is a little light. Overall great beer. Extra points overall for surprising me with the cayenne pepper!

DeScription: Stout Aromatisé au chocolat, vanille et poivre de cayenne brassé par Paddock Wood pour le Sherbrooke liquor store.
Comment: Bouteille de 341ml partagée avec Patrick.
Visuel: Ce stout est brun très foncé, la mousse est beige.
Olfactif: Le nez est très odorant. Les effluves de vanille, de cerises, de fraises et de poivre s’entremêlent.
Gustatif: La bouche est intense, ronde, le chocolat est bien présent, il y a de la vanille et du café. La texture est huileuse. La finale est piquante.
Résumé: Un cocktail aztèque à partager.
Note: 7/10 pour la qualité pas pour la facilité à boire.

(From Vertical Bacon Strips) The general aspect : Black body with a ring of foam. Light lacing. The nose : Full of milk and bitter chocolate. Fresh vanilla pod and light peppery perfume. The taste : Flavors are sweet – fudge, vanilla, flavored coffee – but quickly hit by hot and spicy flavors of pepper. The mouthfeel: Very nice palate. Medium body. Very soft carbonation. Silky texture. The finale: Nice heat on the taste buds. The appreciation: Chocolate and pepper: a bold and brilliant marriage.

Impenetrably black. Head is quite brown, quite plentiful. Aromas - principally roasty malts, but there’s also some dark chocolate. The cayenne shows up in the nose too. Flavour opens up with roasty malts, dark chocolate makes an appearance. Finish is bitter roast and significant pepperiness at the back of the mouth. Lightly carbonated. Quite an oily mouthfeel.

Tap at beer bros. Solid black. Off white head. Aromas o milk chocolate and dark chocolate. Taste is a little bland actually. Dark chocolate and vanilla flavors. Aftertaste is quite spicy on the back of the throat.

A wonderfully different chocolate stout with a cayenne pepper finsh. Might have been cloying without the heat, I think it’s a great addition to a marvellous chocolate stout. Cheers!

pours with a dark brown/black colour, on the nose light notes of bitter hot chocolate. This same flavour profile continues on the palate, but a light spicy aftertaste that lingers.

Bottle courtesy of Torontoblue. Deep opaque liquid decants a creamy cappuccino head. Leaves sticky lace on the sides of the glass. The nose is pure dark chocolate and roast with a bit of minty hops. Sweet, chocolaty, and roasty bitter with a perfect chipotle sting at the back of the palate. Incredible balance of the elements in this one. Creamy, warming, and spicy finish, full bodied, excellent. Thanks Sid!
