2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Pours a thin black with almost no head. Aromas of Mexican food, chocolate roast and peppers. Goddamn, this thing smells spicy. First sip... Reveals way too much chipotle pepper. Fuck, this is hot. And not in a good way. Shit. I really wanted to like this beer, but the pepper is just too much.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can pours deep amber with a thin tan head of foam. The aroma offers up some dark roasted malts, molasses covered cinnamon graham cracker and then a nice level of chili pepper. The taste delivers dark roasted malts, some sweet molasses and a sense of cinnamon. It gets to a modest degree of chili pepper taste and heat heading into the finish. Pretty nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can at home. Pour is pitch black with a frothy khaki head and good lacing. Cocoa, chili peppers, cinnamon, nutmeg, gingerbread, light clove, coffee, and bread in the aroma. Taste is roasted chocolate, light cherries, chili peppers, heavy cinnamon, potpourri, roast, espresso, and dark fruits with a lightly smoky finish. Medium mouthfeel with medium-to-soft carbonation. Nice mole stout, but not quite as good as New Belgium’s version.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is a black outta the can. Aroma is a nice roasted malt with some spicy peppers. Flavor is a minor roasted malt with a little hot pepper kick toward the end. This is a beer that would deffinatly be better with food. On it’s own it’s a regular stout with some hot pepper spice added to it.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beautiful black body with a thin tan head. Wonderfully inviting aroma of chocolate and spice. The palate is a bit thin, but very smooth. The flavor is sweet and chocolately up front, and that fades to a spicy finish. There's a bit of a hot pepper aftertaste. Wow.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can via trade. Pours clear dark brown with a fizzy head that quickly fades to nothing. Aroma of cinnamon, vegetal chili pepper and chocolate. Flavor is spicy cinnamon and chocolate mostly with some coffee and a very slight chili pepper heat. Medium to full body with prickly carbonation. I’m sometimes skeptical of chili beers but this is a really nice one, all the flavors come together well.

Spicy..can definitely taste the chilis in it. I liked the taste but found it to smell of plastic and general metallic weirdness. Overall pretty good as the spice overcame the smell.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour out of can, dark black pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of big chili, chocolate, nice cinnamon, earth, some coffee, toffee, sweet cocoa, nice balance overall. Taste is nice, a little watery, but nice chocolate, coffee, hints of chili and pepper notes, some cinnamon, toffee, finishing fairly sweet, bitter, and dry, with a slight hint of heat. This works fairly well.
