Do you like a bit of sugar, spice, and everything nice? Well Copper Kettle Brewing Company’s Mexican Chocolate Stout might just be the right beer for you. It pours black with the subtle aroma of chocolate and spices, and upon taking the first sip you’ll notice the chocolaty, smooth, velvety finish. Then the kick hits you, that wonderful hint of spice that isn’t too powerful, but lingers around on your taste buds for a good couple of seconds. Overall a great beer, especially with the winter season coming in. I imagine having this beer on a cold night, wrapped up in a blanket in front of a fire while roasting up some S’MORES. This beer definitely is a MUST try on my list of Stouts if you are a Stout person.

Infected. Acetone. Plastic burning. Nail polish.

I suppose if you love cinnamon you will like this beer. I love stouts and I had to pour this down the drain after two sips. Disgusting.

Cinnamon, cacoa nibs and chili pepper. You notice the spice much more after a couple sips. Smoky chocolate, subtle cinnamon and building spice.

Shared with JLindros...wish I could say I trolled him, but, was expecting this to be good.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a dark black hue with a mocha head that faded to leave a thin blanket.

S - Aromas of yeast, floral, awful yeast. Lilacs....where's the chocolate? Where's the chili? Oxidized maybe...cardboard, chalky chocolate.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, good chili taste and heat, nice chocolate albeit cheap, faint nutty, faint coconut, rather mediocre and light cardboard.

M - Mouthfeel is not bad, smoother, nice heat, not bad.

O - Overall this beer was an epic letdown. The nose and taste were just awful. Ugh

Thanks to rudzud, well maybe not.

Nice creamy thick smooth 1/2 finger head that fades at a med pace, nice lacing, nice legs too, just about pitch black color.

Nose has a first punch of dusty dank shelf and raw yeast, then that fades quickly then yahoo choc milk, creamy fake choc nesquick style, little floral earthy thing, and wet cardboard, oxidation?, faint dried chili pepper in the background, and a bit of cinnamon.

Taste is a bit better, big hot pepper heat, tingly, cayenne or chili pepper heat. Then the fake milk choc, more Yahoo nesquick style, creamy but meh. Then back to yeast, bad yeast flavor and mild wet cardboard and dank shelf maybe oxidation. Plenty of cinnamon too, little apple cinnamon spice. Finish is more Yahoo fake choc milk and fair heat, little more cardboard and yeast.

Mouth is med bod, nice lingering heat, decent carb.

Overall horrible!

This is a really small brewery randomly located in an office park, but they put out some good beer. They've been around for a few years now so they obviously are doing something right. Mexican Chocolate Stout is their bestseller, and they've started bottling it for sale outside of the tap room. It's a little too spicy for me, but I don't go for hot stuff in general, so make of that what you will. The chocolate got overshadowed by the spice, so if they balanced this one just a little bit better, I'd be a regular consumer. I'd go back and try other beers there though.
