This one is from notes.
A - One finger dark head overlying a black as night brew. Great head retention and lacing. There are multiple shades of brown that layer on top of each other within the head itself. Very nice.
S - Pickled jalapeno peppers, stale vinegar, and cinnamon. This is literally the worst smelling beer I have ever smelled. Gross.
T - Better than the smell, but still really bizarre and poorly melded together. Bitter roasts and dark chocolate up front, with harsh chiles and sourness in the finish.
M - Very nice. Rich and thick - just as a heavy, high ABV stout should be. Not much carbonation, nearly perfect to my liking.
D - Not a whole lot here. The overpowering aroma and taste of the jalepenos/chiles leaves a lot to be desired in this beer. And it's a shame too - without the addition of such random, poorly chosen ingredients, such as the chiles, this would make a truly excellent stout. If this were available on tap at the Map Room or any other Chicago beer bar, I would certainly not order it, nor would I ever seek out another bottle.

Opened on Christmas and split between 4 people
A - Dark as night with small mocha foam head
S - Chocolate, oak, vanilla, carmel and on the back end comes those chili's, very pleasant on the nose
T - Extremely balanced between the chili, vanilla, chocolate, cinnamon, and vanilla. This is much more balanced than I found Abraxas to be as that was a cinnamon bomb. The finish was where the spice came from.
M - Very thick full bodied mouthfeel with a creamy finish
O - This is my second favorite chili stout as of now. Just behind bomb! and ahead of Abraxas
