easiest drinking 9% I've ever tried. Less spice than I thought it would have, but very tasty.

Tastes decent but leaves a strange aftertaste that I'm not too fond of. Can't really taste the chili pepper, at least not in a way that I was expecting to. It's okay, but I was a little underwhelmed and disappointed, especially considering they're the company that brought me Undead Party Crasher, one of my favorite stouts.

If you liked the Stone Xocoveza Mocha Stout, you will enjoy this. Good balance of spice and chocolate taste mixed in.
