Pours a dark brown almost black color with tan head. Malt on the nose, a little cocoa but not much; follows onto the palate. Finishes with just a little heat from the chiles. Not their best offering. wyzzywyz22 (2752) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2014
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.

12/26/2013. From can. Black with a beige head. Roasted malt aromas with spices and chocolate. Flavors are rich, bitter, but with some acidity that throws it off balance. Reid (2625) - Salem, Oregon, USA - FEB 22, 2013
12 oz can from "Lifesource" Salem.
Wonderful looking beer poured into my PBR goblet!. Black as night with a thick tan head creamy goodness.
Cocoa,burnt malts and caramel nose..pleasing.
Taste is semi dark chocolate, slightly smokey,roasted nuts and oats and a faint hot pepper..excellent stuff.
Great palate..keeps my taste buds tingling and guessing!
I really liked this one.
I have had only 2 beers from this brewer and loved them both. Must try more. dimenhetfield (2554) - , Florida, USA - JUL 23, 2013
12oz can poured into glass. This was a very nice stout, and out of a can which I’m always jazzed about. Would have like more chilies and cinnamon spice though, it was just too subtle for me.

Can. Pours dark brown. Aroma is liquorice, chocolate and some spiciness. Taste is medium bitter. Light bodied but still tasty. JDBaker11058 (2351) - Maryland, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Appearance: pours a cola brown that turns purplish black in a snifter, with a tight but foamy yoohoo-colored head that reluctantly fades to a thick cap and decent lacing. Aroma: dark chocolate, hint of lactic tang, ancho chile heat, vanilla, and a whiff of oreo cookie. Taste: burnt black bread, ash, stone, a surprising hint of herb (cut grass?), then maybe some chocolate. Finish: dry, ashy, bitter, with a hint of black pepper. Notes:Palate was overly light, almost watery. It was really noticeable on first sip; when the beer crossed my lips it was almost as if there was no flavor at all, like drinking a slightly burnt mineral water. I was hoping it would get better, because the pour and nose were excellent. Unfortunately, this just absolutely fell apart once I started drinking it. Drain pour, dammit. Hoped for so much more.

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
