A dark brown/blackish body (bad lighting where I had it) with one finger head that goes quick on top of a spicy, chili esque aroma though not too dominant as the chocolate is real strong in the aroma as well. Taste is mostly chocolate and chili but I found a good balance as the beer is a sweet heat, in other words the chilis don't just add a little spice to the chocolate and the chocolate isn't overpowered and letting the beer get too "hot". Chewey, bready, fuller bodied, some minor fruit notes that I can't really placed. Overall, just a really good beer.

I really liked this beer as it combined some heat with some cocoa and cinnamon. Everything works in this experiment as the heat backed the stout like beer and the spices added some sweetness. The Mexican flavour aspect is unique and very cool. I would love to get a bottle and pair it with some Mexican food.

22oz brown bomber.

LOOK: Deep mahogany hue, tight lacing

SMELL: Fresh chilies, raw cocoa, brown sugar, cinnamon, candied fruit

TASTE: Sweet maltiness within, creamy fullish body, full chili flavor, mild pepper heat, cinnamon, treacle, figgy, spicy throughout, reserved hoppiness, finishes spicy

This is a lovely brew, well rounded with a perfect balance of chili to cocoa to spice and still stays a beer.
