I bought this beer mostly because I was curious but I will buy it again. I thought they found a good balance of flavors in this beer. Nice chocolate flavor with just a hint of spice.

Chocolate Sombrero pours a black color with a small lacing head. There is a big roasted aroma with big hints of vanilla. The taste is roasted, noticeable vanilla notes, the smallest hint of chili peppers. Good flavors, comes together nicely, but very flat body. Overall its very tasty, easy to drink, but flat.

Poured from 22 oz bomber into snifter. Bottle dated 6/6/2014.

A: Pours dark black with two finger dense mocha head. Lasting retention and plenty of sticky lacing.

S: Sweet milk chocolate and vanilla extract. Subtle cinnamon.

T: Reminds me a bit of drinking a thick chocolate milk with hot fudge sauce on top. Vanilla and cinnamon come through nicely especially as it warmed, but almost no chilli spice.

M: Thick and creamy. Pleasantly carbonated for a stout.

O: Easy drinking and tasty stout. I wish the spices were more prominent but this is one I would grab again.
