Poured Chocolate Sombrero into a snifter.

A - Pours black as midnight with a finger of mocha head.

S - Dark roasted malts fill the nose. Chocolate on second sniff.

T - Different for sure. A spicy roasted malt hits the palate initially. Mid palate getting more spiciness from the peppers with heavy chocolate. Finally, on the finish getting some coffee and more spicy malt. Wow!

M - Medium to heavy on the mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

O - Pleasantly surprised! Love the different flavors that shine on this brew. Highly recommended! Cheers!!

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.
