Dark black pour, fairly thin. Lots of carbonation, nice tan head. Chocolate and chili in the nose, and again in the taste. Sweet, but not overbearing. Quite nice.

Bomber shared with friends at Sybarite Pig. Red Wax, not sure what batch. This one was a slight gusher and possibly infected. The milk lactose flavor was a tad sour which sort of ruined the experience for me.

TheEpeeist (3358) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2013
22 oz bottle. Dark brown with tan froth. Nose is coffee, chocolate, vanilla bean and light chili. Medium to full body with a tang and building spicy heat. Taste is chocolate, vanilla and caramel. The cinnamon adds a sweet note transitioning nicely to the bite of the ancho. All the ingredients play a part with none too dominant, the cinnamom less so. Cool brew.

jbrana (449) - NASHVILLE, Tennessee, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Quite spicy with strong milk chocolate flavors. Has flavors of cinnamon and roasted barley and very little head or lacing. Slightly thin body that seems more like that of a porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Really not getting much sweet stout. More of a chipotle porter. Thin body, spicy pepper. Decent stuff but nothing special

Sarlacc83 (747) - Oregon, USA - APR 23, 2013
22oz bottle from Shane. Consumed April 21st, reviewed from notes. A: Pour brings out a dull opaque mahogany body with a fizzing mocha head. Head then diminishes into a thin ring. Can see some of the carbonation showing at the surface. N: A bracing nose of vanilla, chocolate, and cinnamon. Roasted malt and coffee. Spice from the anchos shows upon closer inspection. Hints of caramel. T: Heavy spice from the anchos. There’s a moderate mixture of sweetness from the malts and some hop bitterness. However, there isn’t quite enough here to stand up to the chilies and that’s a shame. M: Oily, medium mouthfeel. Milk stout lends a pleasant smoothness and alcohol is hidden. O: A decent beer, but it doesn’t explode with flavors like I’d hope. I get a lot of pepper and not much of the ancillary flavors.

pours a very murky dark brown. Smells of chocolate, cinnamon, and spice. Taste start off with a very smooth dark chocolate, then cinnamon and then the chile hits on the back end. There’s a nice tingly spice that you’re left with. I really liked this.

Bottle from BA eorwar. Thanks! Thick, deep black pour with tan head. Nose is rich with dark, semi-sweet chocolate. Light notes of spice and a touch of plastic. Flavor is initially a lightly sweet lactose, chocolate, and roasted malt that quickly fades to low-grade cinnamon/pepper heat. Flavors are muddled in the beginning, but even out with further drinking. Heat/spiciness also builds, but only to moderate level. Nice thickened mouthfeel. Overall, a bit too choppy for me, but certainly drinkable.

Atom (1344) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Bomber batch 29 thanks to Pawola22, pours a dark brown/black with a small tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate, raspberry, with molasses, and vanilla. Taste of milk chocolate, fruits, slight cinnamon, and spice. Kind of thin, not bad but I’m not to crazy or impressed with this one.

Batch # 62. Black pour with a light tan head. Sweet chocolate aroma with vanilla in the back. Taste was chocolate, vanilla and spicy pepper finishing it out. As I drank, the pepper aftertaste gets more serious, a little heat on the palate. Can taste a little cinnamon in the finish. The head disappeared but that doesn’t matter. The beer is complex and damn tasty. The beer clings to the glass. Well done.
