12 oz can purchased in Nevada.
Body is deep, dark brown with maybe a hint of ruby highlights. No head to speak of.
Nose is is sweet, musty, bitter chocolate.
Flavor seems muted compared to the various items mentioned on the label. Bitter chocolate stout is what I get. No pepper heat, and I am really missing it.
Mouthfeel is medium. Just that...
Overall it is OK. I thought I was grabbing a Big Swell IPA when I dragged it from the fridge. Wish I had been.

12oz can poured into a Chimay goblet.
A: Pitch black pour. Creamy beige head takes its time,but eventually settles to a thin cap. A delicate ring of lacing circles the glass.
S: Semi sweet dark chocolate, smoke and soot, faint whiffs of black pepper, dried chilis, and cinnamon. Not much 'pop' on the nose.
T: Smoke and soot up front. Bakers chocolate. Faint cinnamon. Flash of clove and some oily hops. The chipotle contribution is very downplayed, just the slightest hint of peppery warmth on the back end. Cola. Touch of candidate sugar fruitiness. Dry chocolatey and sooty finish with the slightest hint of chipotle heat.
M: Rather thin and light. Slight creaminess, but it lands on the watery side. Gentle scrubbing carbonation.
O: About as complex as a doorknob. Adjunct contributions are weak and uninspired, yeast character is seriously lacking, and the body is too thin and watery. A lot of bells and whistles on paper, but in the end this is an exceedingly average beer. Maui needs to go bigger and bolder all around with this one.
