Poured from the bottle. Color is pitch black with minimal head. Aroma is roasted coffee and chocolate. Taste is strong coffee and heat comes through as it warms up. Very nice stout.

As it warms some aromas of chili come out with some hints of cocoa. Pour is medium brown, slightly translucent. After letting it warm, initial flavor of coffee and then follows with some heat from the chiles. Slight amount of heat in this one, not overpowering but very well balanced and very enjoyable.

Bacterial (1679) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - AUG 16, 2013
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 (3383) - 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 (471) - 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 (903) - 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. Thereís a moderate mixture of sweetness from the malts and some hop bitterness. However, there isnít quite enough here to stand up to the chilies and thatís a shame. M: Oily, medium mouthfeel. Milk stout lends a pleasant smoothness and alcohol is hidden. O: A decent beer, but it doesnít explode with flavors like Iíd 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. Thereís a nice tingly spice that youíre left with. I really liked this.
