This is a great little beer here and not to be missed. Cool artwork and and a great stout at a decent price as well !!

The appearance is really nice dark and wispy head.

The Smell is spot on with chocolate notes comming through.

The Taste is right on with a super chocolate and spice notes throughout.

The Mouthfeel stays with you it has a bit of a bite but a good one with the chile really standing out.

overall this is a great representation of a chilie beer. I would have it again and recomend it as well.

Pours a nice dark brown black with a decent head that dissipates quickly. Smells ok and tastes like a typical dark stout. Can't detect much chocolate, ancho chiles or cinammon at all. Slightly sweet at the end. Goes down well but I am not that impressed for a beer that touts all these different ingredients, it has a very generic taste.
