12 oz. can. Pours a pitch black pour with little to no head. Aroma of dark chocolate, peppers, spices such as cinnamon and cardamon. Flavor is mildly sweet, strong cinnamon and chocolate component, apparent pepper notes as well. Mild heat, though, which I find somewhat disappointing. Slick bodied, a lot of spice in the finish. Interesting beer.

12 oz. can, compliments of Chad at the Jug. Pours a thick, light beige, short duration head, over a clear dark brown (SRM 30) body.....nose is cocoa, cinnamon, very light chile peppers, hints of brown sugar, hints of coffee, smoke.....taste is cocoa, light chile heat, cinnamon, light coffee, finishing with slight hints of sweetness and lingering mild chile burn.....mouth feel light, carbonation high. Although this is more of a Spice/Herb in style, than a Stout, it works remarkably well. The chile were used with a relatively light hand, as were the spices, allowing for nice complexity in both aromas and flavors with the additional benefit of a very nice balance. This would run well against a chocolate mousse functioning as a desert type beer. BJCP 8/3/14/4/7

One of the better pepper beers out there. Nice pepper taste, not crazy. Bit of coco. I thought it was damn tasty.

Fun...this stuff smells just like my homemade mole. Definitely the guajillos showing through. Fast fading head and no lacing. A bit thin on the palate and translucent dark brown. Would prefer some more body, but happy it’s at 5.5% too. Spice and sweet finish. Probably wouldn’t drink more than one at a given time but nice addition to the lineup.

Can. Dark dark brown. Smells spicy- cinnamon spicy, slight smell of hot peppers, cola. Tastes like roasty cinnamon sugar toast with a finish of roasty chiles. Really great balance, really fun beer! Super good, highly suggest trying it!

Tap. Pours clear black with a small, fizzy tan head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is chocolate and roast malt with chipotle peppers and dark fruity esters. Flavor is malt forward with medium spices, light hops and bitterness with a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.

The beer pours a very dark brown to black color with no head. The aroma is heavy on the peppers, with a lot of the roasted ancho notes coming through strongly. I also get a hint of chocolate and some roasted malt. The flavor is very nice. What really comes through early is some cinnamon and chocolate, as well as a hint of heat from the peppers. I also get some of the earthiness from the chilies as well as some nice chili flavor. The chocolate and chili notes meld very well together, with just the right amount of heat and sweetness. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation. A very nice stout and I am glad more and more breweries are brewing beers similar to this one.

12oz cans, new to Hops & Vines! Pours darkish with a tan off white head. Aromas of cinnamon, clove, & slight Ancho pepper. Flavor is medium bodied (for a stout) the peppers are more in the taste but still subtle. The milk sugar (lactose) is noticeable in the flavor and finish giving it a weird blend of a milk stout and spiced ale combo. Overall a well balanced novelty beer. I got some Ancho pepper when I belched afterward. No to little heat in the beer itself.
