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.

Okay, so I bit on this one despite my general aversion to SKA products, mostly because I love stouts with cocoa/chocolate and/or peppers and there are so few of them out there - pour is clear dark brown - initially fizzy, but quickly turns headless and almost still, looking like flat cola - interesting nose, with a complex mix of cinnamon, anise, dates, light cocoa, a hint of smoke, perhaps from the peppers, but no pepper character to speak of - carbonation is low to non-existent and the beer is thin and flabby in the mouth, which is a damn shame because there are some good things happening here - some lactose sweetness up front - followed by drier notes of cocoa, moderate cinnamon, some tartness, date, raisin - slight heat on the tongue, but the spiciness really comes through as a strong warmth at the back of the throat - some interesting and enjoyable individual parts, but as a whole it is a little weak - seems like an attempt to replicate Copper Kettle Mexican Chocolate Stout (suspiciously so, like they were literally trying to copy it) - Copper Kettleís is much better and quite a bit spicier.

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.

Serving: 12 oz. can. It pours a muddy brown color with a fading light brown head. The nose has some fruity smoked chili notes. The flavor highlights fruity chili notes, red pepper, smoked chili powder, cocoa powder, and slight roasted malt notes in the distance. This one is clearly about the peppers. Medium body with a long finish. Itís unusual which isnít bad but itís so different itís not one I would want another of.

Pours dark brown with no head. Aroma of chili and chocolate. Same with flavour. Lost of carbonation and almost a bit thin for this flavour and style. Somewhat disappointing.

Pours like coffee with no head at all. Strong complex aromatics weave a rug of many colors in my mind. The peppers show upfront on the aroma with cocoa and spice taking up the rear on the tongue. Medium nectar with good carbonation. A moderate sweetness prevails with only a touch of bitter on the finish. The pepper is prominent on the finish as well. Love the peppers!

Dark brown, opaque color, no head. Perfumic spicey (anise, oregano) aroma. Medium-bodied. Chilli-pepper, herbal oregano, menthol, anise. Light coffee notes. Very weird but with all these spices (which I usually donít like in beer) somewhat interesting.

Poured from a can. Small tan short-lasting head. Aroma is very much like that of mole. Flavor is earthy with dried peppers and spice.

Preface: I hate peppers/anything with peppers. Pours a clean dark black with copper edges and one finger of tan head. Interesting nose, capsaicin is well integrated but still makes me wretch. Some roast comes through and medium roast coffee. Probably done well enough but I just hate this type of beer.

Bottle. Dark brown with light tan lace. Nose shows peppers, light cocoa, roast. Similar flavor--a little overly peppery to be enjoyed but maybe more authentic mole. Cool idea though.
