Whoa, lots of chiles in the nose initially. Further inspection reveals dark chocolate, roasty malt, green peppers. Taste joins the above together, failing to create a Hunahpu clone. Too much pepper character, I'll pass.

Bottle. Pours black, with a very small, brown head. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, cinnamon, peppers. Flavor is cinnamon, chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla, alcohol, dark fruit, and some somewhat hot spiciness from the peppers. Fairly heavy body. Nice finish, which moves between sweetness, heat, and bitterness.

This is good, but not awesome. Very solid spiced stout. Can taste a lot of herbs and cinnamon. Mouthfeel is great, complex, not much booze.
