Poured from a relatively fresh 22oz into a pint glass:

A: dark, dark brown with a small khaki head. Looks like iced coffee. Low retention, a bit frothy looking.

S: dark roast coffee beans, extra dark chocolate with a fresh cocoa powder vibe.Touch of spicy-sweet cinnamon, much like that in Mexican hot chocolate.

T: big, bitter wallop of the aforementioned chocolate used for Mexican hot chocolate. Slow fade to sweetness mixed with a cappuccino coffee profile. Finish bittersweet with a bit of a bite from the high abv.

M: creamy, smooth, and big bodied with low carbonation. Heat from the alcohol is evident.

O: not a bad spiced stout.definitely got the chocolate, cinnamon flavors that they were going for but the ancho chili and vanilla seemed absent. All together, a decent stout to try for 7.99

Bottle served at cellar temp in a duvel tulip

A - pours an opaque chocolate brown, thick mocha head, fades to nothing

S - smells of chocolate ad cinnamon with malt in the backbone

T - big amount of chocolate and coffee initially, undertones of cinnamon with a hint of chili, complemented by a small hint of alcohol burn

M - medium body, smooth

O - this is a different slant on a chocolate stout, quite drinkable, I would try this one again

22 oz bottle. Pours brown-black with a medium frothy tan head that goes to a thin film that leaves some lacing.

The aroma is subdued - roasted grains with a little cinnamon and chile.

The flavor is sweet chocolate malts with a little spice and some heat from the chile in the finish with some residual sweetness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, an OK stout. It's pretty subdued, and there are better alternatives.
