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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Serving Type: 22 ounce bomber poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Looks great, black, nice tan head with lots of tiny bubbles, head dissipates pretty quickly, nice carbonation.

Smell: A lot of roast from the coffee, smoky aromas from the chipotle, I'm getting more of smoky aroma than anything else.

Taste: Smoky flavor up front, getting the coffee in the middle with some bitterness, spicy chipotle aroma on the back end leading into some spice, a mild spice, alcohol is present at 6.7% but not overwhelming.

Mouthfeel: Lost of carbonation, smooth, dry mouthfeel at the end.

Overall: Great beer, as for spiced beers this and Stone Smoked Porter with Chipotle are my two favorites.
