Enjoyed in a tasting glass at the homebrew demonstration.

A: Dark brown with a tan half finger head that lingers. Thick lacing.

S: Cocoa dominates, but what's that heat in the background? Pepper and cinnamon stir in the mix.

T: I was really afraid of this one because of the "mole" aspect. But the heat isn't overpowering. In fact, it's nicely subdued over the rich cocoa flavoring. Add in the cinnamon and this LOF is a winner.

M: Light to medium with medium carbonation.

O: I intend to get a bomber of this superb brew. A great dessert beer and one to share with friends.

Spicyness of peppers plays nicely into the warming 9% ABV of the beer. The beer is a bit thin for the variety of flavors presented. The nose reminisent of a spicy cinnamon cupcake. Overall the beer is on the sweet side. Cinnamon takes over the beer and the sweetness of the Ceylon (Mexican) cinnamon also plays into the sweetness of the beer.

Aftertaste killed this beer for me. I could taste the cinnamon/chili blend several hours and two meals later

Appearance - Pours a nut brown with two fingers of bubbly tan head.

Smell - roasted malts, cocoa nibs, chilies, hint of coffee bean, light hint of caramel.

Taste - Starts off with the roasted malts followed by the cocoa nibs, hint of coffee bean, hint of caramel, and the brew finishes with a pleasant spiciness from the chilies. You get a smokiness from the chipotle peppers.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Finishes with a pleasant lingering heat from the chilies.

Overall - A well executed chili beer. The roasted malts and cocoa nibs act as a nice supporting cast to the bold smokiness and heat from the peppers. Worth a go if your seeking some heat in your brew.

Nice smooth stout. Not real heavy. Has a cinnamon flavor with some heat.

I got this as a gift. It was spicy on the backside and definitely a beer you sip on.

Excellent mouth feel. The chilies don't over the layers of flavor. Toffee, slight coffee, and mild chocolate comes in. The chilies give the perfect kick.
