Pours thick black with microscopic, dark beige head. Aroma chocolate, coffee, cinnamon and smoke. Taste is dark chocolate and caramel, warming to coffee and cinnamon, with a slight pepper heat mixing in. Finish is well-balanced roast. Just an exceptional imperial stout. ozzy70 (1409) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 26, 2018
12 oz. bottle. Black with a foamy dark tan head. Aroma was cocoa, roast coffee, pepper. Taste was mild bittersweet, cocoa, some coffee, mint, spice. phaleslu (11074) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 8, 2018
12 oz. bottle from Higher Gravity, purchased on a whim because I didn’t know it existed. Pours a deep, dark, opaque brown with a moderate dark tan head that settles into a a ring and island of film. Notes of coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa beans, toasted sugar, cinnamon, roasted malts, smoked and spicy peppers, earth, and fudge. Full-bodied, with modest carbonation and a rich, roasty, spicy, slightly boozy and warming mouthfeel. Just a little sweetness. Very good. HonusWagner (2250) - Florida, USA - JAN 19, 2018
Very peppery beer with lots of spice and smoke, I quite liked it but not everyone I drank it with could stomach this take on the Mexican Chocolate style. SpringsLicker (3692) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 1, 2018
Black pour with a quickly falling tan head.
The aroma is heavy roast malt, roasting coffee with a bit of alcohol.
The flavor is strong and gives the impression that this is much heavier bodied than it really is. Lots of roast coffee, chocolate and the alcohol again on a fairly sweet rich palate.

Bottle. Pours a thick and heavy black with generous head. Aroma is cocoa, spicy peppers. Heavy body. Smooth, thick and chewy. Taste is cocoa, roast malt, molasses, toffee, coffee, vanilla, and slight spicy pepper. This is good and it's like eating a meal. A beer meal. Sip it and enjoy.

Bottle... Pours pitch black with a mid-sized, creamy, brown head. The aroma features coffee, dark chocolate and chili peppers – mainly chipotle - accompanied by a tiny pinch of cinnamon. Medium to full-bodied and lightly creamy with tingly carbonation. The flavor features dark chocolate, espresso and chili peppers – mainly chipotle, but also ancho and pasilla. I’m picking up only a rumor of cinnamon here. Roasty, mildly warming finish. Pumpkin87 (250) - - DEC 16, 2017
Pours a beautiful chocolate brown, nearly opaque, with lion-colored head that is merely a brief bit of froth but does leave some lacing.
Nose is coffee with a suggestion of mocha spice. Palate follows suit with chocolate succeeding initial coffee. What is merely heat at first softens with aeration into a peppery nudge with the occasional cinnamon puff.
Watch the ABV, because it's not readily apparent in what becomes a sippable treat to linger over in a session, but don't plan anything for after brunch.

Pour from bottle. Black with absolutely no head at all. Nose is coffee and alcohol. Powerful drink - first sip is a bit of an explosion. A lot going on - this is a big beer. Black licorice, coffee and alcohol. Good - not great, but good.
