Can. Low carbonation. Nice spicy aroma: cinnamon, cloves and cocoa. Initial taste is a balance of roast malt and green veggie, sweetness and a bit of heat linger, would like to see the ABV up a couple of percent, otherwise a nice can to carry around Colorado.

(En fût au Blind Lady Alehouse): Un corps mince soutient un bouquet d’épices massif avec une grande présence de la cannelle et du chocolat. Plutôt cohérent et facile à boire malgré l’exubérance des ingrédients.

[Tap] Deep brown pour with very little head on top. Aromas of cocoa powder, molasses, cinnamon and some chili. Notes of toasted grains, lighter hot pepper heat, chocolate, nutmeg and toffee in the taste. The flavors are fine, but somewhat dull compared to the better chili stouts that have hit the market recently. Thin to medium in body. I wasn’t crazy about this one.

Can at home. Pours dark brown with no head. Aroma is chocolate and ancho chilis. Flavor follows with some cinnamon as well smooth and creamy. Nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Enniskillen (2044) - Salinas, California, USA - JAN 6, 2015
Black with a tan head. Aroma is a medium spiciness, chocolate, cream, roasty. Taste is a mild spiciness, chili powder, cinnamon, chocolate- typically with these beers I want less heat, but with this it could actually use a touch more.

Fratto (2709) - Arlington, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Can from Total Wine. Dark pour with a dark bubbly head. Aroma is chocolate, peppers, and roasted grain. Taste is coffee, baking spice, and cocoa. Nice pepper finish.

Bocoboho (4) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - DEC 24, 2014 does not count
Creamy chocolate and pepper vibe - smooth with the bite of some pepper beers. I often use a pepper beer as a float on a chocolate stout/porter, but this one is complete in itself. Raymee.com uses this can to make fridge magnets.

Nsanders (638) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Tap at Blues Bar. Deep brown with no head. Chocolate, graham crackers, green peppers, and cinnamon. Sweet chocolate with very little spice. Body is lighter with a watery feel.

badpuppy69 (285) - orange, California, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Pours a dark brown almost black little head. Aroma is coffee and dark chocolate. Taste follows the aroma but is lighter than the aroma. Has a medium mouth feel and a soda pop carbonation fizz on the tongue. Good stout for a hot day.

MartinT (8328) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Peppers dominate spices and dark malts in this otherwise memorable number.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam colours the darkness.
-Spices ARE boastful throughout, don’t get me wrong. But chile peppers even more so, to me.
-A light acidity clashes with the spiciness and chocolatey sugars.
-This is nowhere near as delicious as Nogne O’s collaboration with La Chingoneria which plays on the same theme.
-This must be quite good with sausages.

On tap at the Thirsty Monk, Asheville.
