COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg & Bottle.
Inspired by an ancient Mayan recipe, Ilkley Brewery has created an extraordinary Stout. It is velvety smooth, bittersweet, and has a subtle smoky fire in its belly. The Mayan is a Chipotle Chocolate Stout, dare you take it on?

OminouSC2 (401) - SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2016
Black pour. Chocolate and vanilla aromas with some pepper. Taste is sweet chocolate before the chipotle does its magic. The burn is only moderate, making it possible to enjoy the whole drink. Dry finish with lingering chipotle burn. Too heavy on the chipotle during the end, but still good.

DandyWolfFloyd (1017) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2016
Aroma - syrupy chocolate similar to Hershey’s Syrup, faint roast, and a touch of spice. Appearance - black body. Head is 2+" and holds tightly, and buff in color. Taste - has a nice mix of milk chocolate and peppery spice. There is also soft yeast quality, usually reserved for hefeweizens. Palate - full body, creamy texture, carbonation is average, the finish is spicy finish.

ManVsBeer (8260) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2016
Bottle from Latitude, Leeds. Black with next to no head. Has a strong chocolate aroma, with its spice subduing this greatly in its taste. It only provides a mild kick and fire in the palate though.

jamestulloch (3284) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 2, 2016
Bottle. Ruby body with a beige head. Faint lacing. Aroma of chocolate milkshake, fig and green pepper. Flavour of dark chocolate with a chilli burn. Medium body with a creamy mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Too spicy for me.

ATulloch (210) - Aberdeenshire, SCOTLAND - APR 1, 2016
Bottle shared with the bro. Cheers Jamestulloch! Pours a black with little head. Aromas of chocolate, black pepper and big chocolate. Flavour is sweet chocolate, coffee and then a black pepper spice creeps up and nips the tongue. Mild spicy linger. Surprisingly rather enjoyable.

thewolf (11986) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 24, 2016
Bottle. Pours deep brown with a small, staying, creamy beige head. Aroma has lots of chocolate, light milky, some coconut,mild roasted. Low carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has cocoa, firm chili burn, light coffee, soft roasted. Lingering, light warming finish with some chili. Nice.

eljebi (66) - oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 22, 2016
Desde el principio destacan las notas a cacao y ahumadas, con un trago que tira hacia la milk stout, dulce y tostada, con un final especiado y ligeramente picante que se va acumulando poco a poco en la garganta.

Rune (10919) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 17, 2016
Keg, half-pint shared with Finn at Alexandra Hotel. Tiny beige head. Jet black body. Inviting chocolate aroma, sweet. O’boy taste with a very strong chipotle smoked chili ending. Very slow sipper. Almost undrinkable (Derby 19.02.2016).
