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?

Bomber at home. Decent stout. Not quite the season for a beer this big yet. Super dark, thick and roasty. Chipotle notes really come through at the end. Somewhat off-putting slick mouthfeel- but one could say velvety. Got smoother as it warmed up. Decent but better examples of style. Bit rich for my palate.

It’s the second beer with chilli I’m trying and that particular ingredient seems not suiting my beer tastes (though I love it in food). The chocolate has a really nice flavour, but chilli aftertaste ruins it for me.

Off white head with good retention. Dark opaque mahogany colour. Aroma is strong black cocoa and spicy with brownie hints. Taste is black chocolate and peppery with very hot chilli finish. Very peppery aftertaste. Medium creamy palate. A very hot chilli taste.

On cask at The Dandelion in Philadelphia. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is big roasted malt, chocolate, cinnamon and smoky chipotle pepper spiciness. Flavor is roasted malt with smokiness, chocolate, dark dried fruit tartness, cinnamon and finishing with spicy smoky chipotle. Heat grows as you drink more. Really nice.

Bottle. Great stout, roasty with lots of chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, but with something extra - chipotle burning onthe palate. It is strong but it is not overpowering the flavour of the beer. Smooth and velvety on the palate. Medium bitter with spicy burning in the finish. Great beer.

500 ml. bbe 10/15. Opaque ebony with a creamy disc of foam and beautiful lace. Interesting nose is at first apple but then lingers with vanilla, coffee graham cracker and chocolate. Sweet front flavors of vanilla, cappuccino and biscotti turn to lightly tart apple and a spicy finish of earthy capsaicin. Medium body has a smooth carbonation and leans to the sweet side, but balances it out nicely with just the right dose of pepper.

Keg at Berkhamsted beer shop, Berkhamsted, Herts. A black coloured pour with a medium beige head on top. Chocolate, chilli, malty aroma. Tastes similar, chocolate, chilli, malty, bitter/sweet. Quite rich, I really liked it but half a pint was enough.

Sinnebilden för det vulgära jetsetlivet är en person som tar Baddaren i en jacuzzi fylld med champagne. Själv skulle jag vilja ligga och plaska i en chokladfontän fylld med öl. Det vill säga, fylld med Ilkley The Mayan. Anita Ekbergs ikoniska scen i "Det ljuva livet" hade varit mer svensexig än sexig på det viset, och pirret hade vandrat upp från skrevet till buken, men begäret hade varit lika stort. En reklamfilm som väcker köplusten i alla med puls.

Bottle from Bier Huis. Pours dark brown, with a half finger tan coloured head. Aroma of chocolate, some Chilli for sure...Taste of initial chocolate, dark chocolate, almost like Sam Smiths Choc stout, then we have subtle chillis...I say subtle, they’re present but not in your face, nice and warming, not blasting your mouth away.
