COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our third anniversary beer up-sizes Chocolate Sombrero, using extra ancho chile and adding chipotle pepper. We aged the brew 100% in Wild Turkey and Heaven Hill bourbon barrels. May it leap onto your palate majestically, like a luchador who flies into the ring from atop the highest rope.

Rich tasting beer kinda like a dopplebock but with some heat from the chipotle peppers. Nice ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz bottle pours out dark brown almost black topped with a small tan head. Nose is bourbon barrel vanilla light chile notes some chocolate and a coffee touch. Taste is more of the bourbon barrel booze notes some light vanilla rich roast malts and a nice balance of booze and sweet.

Thanks to who sent this bottle. Ageing I think helped round the complex flavour. It is not boozy smelling but packs a punch. Very dark brown, rich cream.

Aged bottle. Pours dark with a foam head that dissipates. The aroma is of cinnamon, vanilla, sugar, bourbon, some roasted malts, and subtle notes of peppers. Tasting, it is of very sweet sugary notes, vanilla flavors, mild pepper heat, bourbon, and a weak bitterness of roasted dark malts. Overall a good brew with a good body and finish.

Pour on tap, dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of big bourbon, oak, whiskey, vanilla, touch of roast, cocoa powder, slight pepper notes. Taste was a mix of oak, bourbon, whiskey into some chocolate, vanilla, touch of pepper notes, finishing boozy. Pretty decent.

Keg at Sedona Charlottesville, 4/18/16. Dark brown, thin fizzy tan head, decent retention. Aroma of strong bourbon, vanilla, roasted malts, raisin. The taste is strong bourbon, vanilla, caramel, roasted malts. Medium bodied, low carbonation, too much barrel character.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2016
Sampled on draft at Vintage Estate this beer poured a black color with a trace tan head that left minimal lacing. The aroma was floral hops, hot peppers, chocolate and bourbon. The flavor was sweet, toasty and malty with motes of molasses, bread crust, chocolate, bourbon and a hint of hot peppers. Delightfully complex. Very long finish. Full bodied and smooth. Alcohol well contained. Outstanding.

Dégustée en compagnie d’Alexandre. Liquide noir ne présentant que très peu de mousse à la durée de vie bien courte. Arômes de bourbon, de chocolat noir, de cacao, de noisette torréfiés. Bien que la bouteille présente un lutteur en plein combat et que ce stout soit décrit comme un "mexican stout brewed with chipotle" je peine à trouver le piment dans ce liquide qui me semble bien plus près du tiramisu que du taco. Très soyeuse et plaisante en bouche, le bourbon apporte chaleur tandis que le chocolat noir procure équilibre et rondeur. Je crois enfin détecter le piment en fin de bouche grâce à une douce bouffée de chaleur. Un très bon stout bien fait qui ne réinvente toutefois rien.

Bomber. Jet black, minimal head. Lovely, dark chocolate aroma, fudge, some oak and whiskey. Breathy, coffee beans on the tongue, some chocolate mint, sweet pepper, vanilla.... Very smooth, somewhat creamy, a touch boozy but of the bourbon variety.
