Dark brown color with nice tan lacing. Dark chocolate aroma with cinnamon notes. Palate has a nice cocoa feel with cinnamon notes and not overly spicy. Great cool weather beer.

Draught at Freakin Frog. Malty dark pour. I didnít get all these ingredients listed here, but thought it was a poor manís Parabola of sorts. Creamy. Chocolate.

DrSilverworm (6032) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 7, 2013
750ml bottle, from Party Source. Shared with caterwaul and co. Bottled 8/8/12. Moderately hazy brown / red color. Thin light brown / tan head. Couple bits of lace. Really interesting aroma... Definitely some mild chile peppers, you get the toasted pecan (a marzipan-like flavor), some good chocolate. Some light roast. Bigger body. Lighter, kind of crisp carbonation. Lightly dry in the finish. Lightly thin... Appropriate for a porter. Some caramel candy, and definite nuttiness.. Moderate bitter taste, big sweet too, not cloying, though. Light, lightly spicy bite to it, but itís nice. Kind of a poblano pepper bite. Interesting, spicy stout porter. Not too sweet, not too much alcohol taste from the 9.3% ABV. Pretty well done and enjoyable spiced stout. Creative.

Pours dark brown with low tan head. Aroma of chocolate, light spices and pepper, canít find much else. Taste is milk chocolate initially before a peppery finish with the chili clearly present. Canít really find the pecans, though... Body is medium and creamy with soft carbonation. This actually works quite nicely!

Bottle from Canalís. Pours out a dark, almost black brown color with a thin tan head. Aroma is of mole sauce, chilies, roasted malts, chocolate and some sweetness. Taste is complex, chocolate, nutty earthy notes, light sugar coated pecans, green chilies, some medium roast. Solid.

bluejacket74 (1282) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - AUG 24, 2013
22 ounce bottle, bottled on 8/8/2012. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours very dark brown with about a half inch off-white head that fizzled away quickly. Not much lacing. Aroma is nice, it smells like chocolate, sweet spices, nuts, and some chilies. The brew tastes like nuts, chocolate, dark fruit, sweet spices, chilies, and some dark bread. The chili spice does linger and get stronger as the beer warms up. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, itís a bit slick, but also thin as well. Wish it was thicker. Overall, I liked this brew. There was more heat in it than I expected, itís a nice, flavorful beer. $11.49 a bottle.

Opaque dark brown beer with a tidy pale tan head. Palate is light and a little crisp and dry. Mild sweet creamy malt. Mild minerals. A little chocolate and a trace of nuts. The chilli kicks in late and is nicely judged. Builds in heat but never overwhelms. Light fruit before an airy finish. Nicely joined up and interesting.

Bottle from MGM Woodbury, dark brown pour with res hues, ring of tan head. Aroma is some chocolate/cacao, maybe a hint of vanilla and chiles. Taste is chiles up front and then a rather sweet nutty malt finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cards04 (1647) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 16, 2014
A nice complex beer. Pours a cola color. Aromas of chocolate and nuts. Flavors are bitter chocolate, coffee, burnt nuts, and a great mild heat at the end. Almost Ginger like. Nice.

drowland (5981) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - OCT 5, 2012
10/3/12. On tap at Kickbackís. Dark brown pour, almost black, with a small tan head. Chocolate and coffee on the aroma with plenty of nuttiness and a touch of peppers as well. Rich chocolate flavor with touches of coffee, plenty of pepper, and hints of vanilla and cinnamon. Interesting and tasty, but itís no Hunahpuís.
