Appearance: Black with an off-white head.

Smell: Mainly coffee.

Taste: Very nice carmel malt flavor with coffee still very upfront giving way to chocolate. The chipotle peppers in here are not obvious, just a mild lingering smokey heat. I am glad they are not too overbearing.

Mouthfeel: Well carbonated and thick milky mouthfeel, without leaving any residual feel. Very good. Alcohol is not obvious.

Overall: I really liked this stout. The coffee, malt, and chocolate are balanced well together, the mouthfeel is very good, and the subdued peppers give it a unique taste without being too much.
