Pours like syrup. Dark dark brown with a thick brown head. Smells like molasses with some chocolate. Delicious dark roasted chocolate. Has a spiciness similar to Mexican hot chocolate. Fairly thick creamy palate and heavy bodied.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Nice muddy pour, deep and dark, with a thick tan head of foam. The aroma is also compelling, hinting at some spice and roast. This drinks with a nice character, rich and thick, but not overwhelmingly so. The base is definitely baking chocolate, but the peppers give it a nice little earthy swirl, too. Good stuff.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Beverages4less, San Diego. Thanks Freddy! Black pour, tan head. Aroma is of roasted malts, quite spicy, some chocolate, tobacco and slightly peppery. Flavor is bitter roasted, smooth and spicy. A hint of afterburning chilies, but very subtle. Solid stout, but less exciting that the description on the can made me think it would be.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mahalo Doofgoblin. Thick black pour, dense tan foam. I’m not a fan of peppers in my beer, but this one works well. The spice is instantly evident, but not hot or heavy. Rather, it’s well integrated with the chocolate and smokey flavors that follow. A little sweet toasted malt in the finish. Better than the sum of its parts.
