look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Darkest brown pour emerging black. Thin creamy mocha head.

Milk stout aroma. Milk chocolate, chocolate malt, Spanish cocoa hot chocolate, vanilla and pert near perfecto bourbon. Did I mention chocolate?

Nuance of coffee, hot cocoa, baking chocolate bars. Bourbon and peppers meld on the top back of my palate. I thought I would be holding these but damn the freshness is so bright and wanting to be consumed now. Vanilla and malt. Not sure if I get any cinnamon though.

Mouthfeel is silky smooth. Languid and bittersweet. Libations sensations that stagger the mind.

Look up goodness in Websters and you'll find En Fuego listed somewhere. Extremely balanced with the bourbon, chiles, vanilla and chocolate. Really none better in this class with the chilies in mind. Worth every friggin penny. I'm getting more!

Poured from a bottle into a Stone IRS snifter. This one was a gusher, which is surprising (and troubling) considering it's a barrel-aged beer. Once it was brought under control, the beer poured out black, not terribly viscous, and sported a pretty dark brown head that starts out impressive but sinks into the beer very quickly. On the nose I get some creamy notes of vanilla, a bit of roasted malt, and just a tiny amount of oak. It doesn't smell like it was in the barrel for very long (but I must admit I'm no expert). Upon warming, agitation forces forth a tart, cherry-like note that doesn't show up in the flavor at all (perhaps it's the chilis, which do show up).

Full body and a very pleasant, complex flavor. There's a lot going on with this beer and it plays well on my palate. Up front I get rich malty notes, dark bittersweet chocolate, vanilla, and the bourbon. Alcohol warmth lights everything up almost immediately. At mid-palate, the chili peppers add just enough of their heat to the party to complement the sweet and bitter flavors already dancing on your tastebuds. The spice from the chilis joins with the alcohol warmth and makes for a very pleasant drinking experience. The bourbon comes on a bit stronger in the back of the throat and lingers behind with some oaky notes. I'm not sure if I'm getting the cinnamon.

I've had Chocolate Sombrero (and really enjoyed it) and this one is worth the extra 6 dollars. The bourbon brings more vanilla and a pleasant boozy sweetness that complements the chocolate and chili flavors perfectly. My only gripe is that, like Chocolate Sombrero, the feel seems a bit thin for such a rich, crowded flavor profile, despite the seemingly high ABV (perhaps it's just my imagination). Nevertheless, I will definitely buy this one again the next time I see it. The flavor is crazy good.
