Wow. A new beer experience. Just when I thought I had tasted everything, this beer is like none other, yes none, not "no". It may as well be black in color but its not. The head is like bubbles swimming on the surface of a black lake. No, I’m not stoned. You just have to see it. No other beer I have seen does this. The aroma is coffee and anise, the taste, much of the same but accentuated. The mole comes in on the finish and lingers. Its like spicy, licorice, thin coffee, but it is unique and therefore enjoyable. Its what makes you different that’s special.

Draught. Pours a very dark brown with very little head. Lots of spices in the nose. Hints of chocolate, as well as many things I would expect in Mexican food. A little sweet, a little spicy. Really interesting.

Draft at Fountainhead. Really glad I gave this one a try! Pours black with a dark brown head. Nose is spicy, cocoa, cinnamon and raisins. Chilies come out as well. Rich and full. On tasting, moderate heat, nice creamy notes on the palate. Cinnamon and faint astringency from it. Chocolate and chilly heat lend some raisin notes as well. Really well constructed beer. Big like.

Can as an extra. Aroma is immediately spicy with a light chocolate note. Pour is black with a medium brown head that dies almost instantly. Taste is an even balance of chocolate and pepper, with a subtle coffee note. A light creaminess to the body, with a light carbonation. This is really good and easy to drink! like a Mexican cake light, less stout and less heat. I’m a fan.

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!

Pours very dark brown or black with a tan head that quickly fades. Aroma is unusual yet appealing, with chocolate, cocoa, cinnamon, cloves, and pepper. Taste is unique. Lots of cinnamon and pepper initially along with cocoa. Chocolaty notes underneath with an impressive spicy zip at the end. Cinnamon and cocoa aftertaste. The spiciness lasts a long time. A bit of sweetness in noticed as well. Medium bodied with some carbonation, and slick when drinking. Burns a little bit. This one is very different for this style, or most anything for that matter. You really must try this to understand what is going on here. I am very impressed.

Enjoyed on tap at Rockwell’s in Chicago, IL while waiting to pick up food. Very interesting and delicious. Appearance is pitch black, moderate thickness with a thin off white head. Aroma of cocoa, cinnamon, spices, and chocolate. Taste is rich with cocoa nibs and has a very very light touch of spice from the peppers. Great stuff, hope to have again.

Pours a deep umber color with a three finger bubbly mocha head that fizzes out quickly. ON the nose there is a warm chocolate spice with hints of poblanos, cinnamon, cola and a touch of smokey chipolte. On teh palate it is creamy and smooth with a heavy sweet chocolate backbone that opens into a warm peppery spice that is well balanced and inviting. The finish continues with chocolate and caramel and a sneaky lil heat on the very tail end is a perfect ending. Nice beer !

Pours a dark brown/black with a small brown head. Light cocoa and spice on the nose. More complexities show as it warms. A lot going on in the mouth. Nice chocolate in the middle surrounded with just enough spice. Nice beer for Fall day watching football.

Unique and well worth the effort to track down. It’s got lots of coffee, cocoa, pepper and other spices on the nose. Pours a very deep dark black with a thin head that dissipates very fast leaving very little lacing. Medium bodied and a somewhat oily mouth feel to it. Taste is like dark chocolate, dark roast coffee, ancho pepper and some other minor notes. Goes down smooth and as it warms in your glass more flavors start to come out. Very nice stout and unique.
