4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This pitch black brew with a small tan head has a complex and interesting aroma. You can smell the chocolate and chipotle. The flavor is powerful and refreshing but this is not a style of beer that I am an aficionado of. If chocolate flavored beer is a must then this is a must. if you are feeling adventurous I would try it also. It isn’t bad, in fact I enjoyed the more I drank of it (go figure)

Keg. Dark brown close to black with a medium sized tan head with good retention and lace. Rich on chocolate at first, but the chili soon takes over and builds up quite some heat. Medium/full body, soft and light fat texture. All in all it is a gimmicky beer that is only fun for so long, but tasty and well made.

The aroma sure is something. It’s bombed with vanilla and chocolate aroma to the brim. Actually it smells more of vanilla than chocolate. The taste is at first a little thin, but when the chili kicks in, it makes up for it. Roasted malts, chocolate powder and a lingering chili sensation that grows on you slowly before it takes over completely. It has more sting than you might think.

Bottle from systembolaget. Pours Black with a medium beige head. Smell is deep with choclate and vanilla. Taste is complex and sweet, with some spice. Palate is relatively thin but a bit creamy. Overall a decent stout though there definitely are better ones.

Flaska från SB. En ganska söt milkstout med mycket chokladmousse i doften. Jag brukar inte gilla den typen av stouts men chilin funkar väldigt bra ihop med sötman och chokladen. Den är precis lagom stark för att balansera den annars lite jolmig drycken. Trevlig.

LCBO B.500 ml
Aroma: surprised to see to much sweetness, vanilla sugars with sweet chocolate feel behind.
Look: poured as dark brown with off white into beige beaded crown. Decent lace. 4-
Taste/Body/Palate: heavy set stout. Hefty creamy texture with lesser carbonation. Heavy walls. Bold chipotle feel on chocolate creamy base. This feel rather authentic. If you are chocolate lover you will know what I am talking about. Solid, interesting interpretation.
