Can, Cave, Glasgow. Poured a dark brown colour with with a medium tan head. Nose was chocolate, roast, cinnamon. Roasted malts, dark fruit, more choc, and spices present in the flavour. Quite lively carbonation. A little on the thin side for a stout. Drinkable and not without some character but ultimately a bit underwhelming.

Can poured a back hue w/ big fizzy tan head fully diminishing. Big chocolate aroma. Initial flavor is moderate sweet with a moderate bitter finish of short duration. Tastes are roasted malts, chocolate, bold roast coffee, cinnamon, clove, and a light heat of chipotle after the finish. Full bodied, soft carbonation, light syrupy mouthfeel, and light warmth in the finish. tiong (7513) - Espoo, FINLAND - JAN 24, 2014
355ml can from Ales by MailCapFlu (5129) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 18, 2014
Pours pitch black with a large thick foamy brown head. Aroma of roasty malts, spices, hints of ash, cocoa and dark chocolate. Taste is smooth, sweetish, slightly roasty and spicy with a touch of cocoa, cinnamon and yeast. Finish is smooth, sweetish and slightly ashy with hints of roastiness and spices. Decent, a bit unbalanced spicy stout.
Pours a frothy brown head atop an opaque body. Nose of rich chocolate and water coffee. Something fruity, cocoa and chili in the finish. Can. Purchased at Liquor Plus University Heights for around $4. RumRunner101 (918) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 18, 2014
Near black pour with tan head. Aroma is chocolate chip cookie dough, licorice. Flavour has dark chocolate, licorice, and on the finish some pepper and cinnamon spice. Little bit of Belgian influence. Nice blend.

12 oz can. From alesbymail.co.uk.jjgmd (2220) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Black colour with a small tan head.
Roasted malt, berries, vinegar, mild sweetness and mild bitterness in the aroma.
The flavour is roasted malt, mild vegetables, dark chocolate, mild bitterness and mild ashy dryness. Quite drinkable but I was expecting more chili flavour.
Can. Pours a dark black pour with a foamy rapidly dissipating java colored head. Nose is malt with chocolate and cinnamon. Taste is rich chocolate, creamy with some peppery spice. Finishes on chocolate malty peppery notes, with moderate lingering. Nice. Quaff Score 8 / 10 zgaier (1962) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Pours pitch black with a brown head and aroma of spices and chocolate. Taste is sweet and creamy, nice milk chocolate, spices, roasted malt, liquorice, and light chilies leading to a spicy, chocolate finish. Solid stout WheatKing (1338) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - JAN 16, 2014
Can. Couldn’t get my mouth around the name so I just called it "Hakuna Matata". hope that’s ok. Pours black, tan head. Nose is licorice, spicy pepper, dark chocolate. Flavour has a bit of dusty coffee, choc, pepper comes through on the finish but not too spicy at all, smooth mouthfeel (which seems a given for all stouts poured from cans). Nice, these guys do non-traditional ingredients quite well imho. onceblind (10294) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Black pour with a thin kahki head. Nose is a bit spicy and chocolaty--not spicy like heat, but like earthy cinnamon and herbal tones, with some raw cocao nibbs and a bit of roast. The flavor is a bit light but the body is mostly full, good roasted barley tones with a mild chocolaty sweetness, ending with a touch of earthy notes and some cinnamon. Not too keen on it overall, it’s chocolaty but earthy-bitter.
