Bottle to Worthy Burger Sniffer
A: dark brown like black coffee with little to no head there is some brown foam but it goes away quickly with no lacing. It pours thick like motor oil and is opaque as can be with no light coming through.
S: There is some smoked malt in there but it is not a really much power behind it. There really aren't many other smells I really can't take much else out there is some vanilla maybe but the chilies are not there at all.
T: Fortunately this is nothing like the nose, there is a nice chocolate flavor upfront that mixes with the spice of the chilies that has a nice presence that is not too overpowering in fact it is just right. The vanilla then starts to come through with a smooth creamy sweet taste that blends in well with the spice of the chilies. There is a bit of smokiness in background with a little hints of cinnamon.
M: The feel is smooth but actually pretty thin considering the style it does go down pretty easy but that is definitely helped by the low abv. You can also definitely feel the spice but it does not effect the smoothness which is impressive, but it is kind of watered down for a stout.
O: In total other then the smell and the sort of lacking feel this is a pretty impressive beer. The taste is well balanced with a whole bunch of different flavors. Its like a super ultra baby version of hunapu's but its definitely worth a try I recommend it.

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.
