This beer has the best appearance of any stout I've seen. It's dark with a chocolate head that is picture worthy.

The taste is chocolate with a tail end of pepper. The mouth feel is very smooth. Having it side by side with Darkness the mouth feel is a bit thinner.

I love this beer. I remember liking Hunapu's more but I would like to have them side by side. Both phenomenal. Cheers!

750 ml bottle. Pours dark brown-black with a huge creamy brown head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet fudgy chocolate with some cinnamon and spice. Kind of smells like a Mexican mocha. Alcohol comes out as it warms.

The flavor is sweet fudgy lactic chocolate with some cinnamon and spicy chili with a bitter roast finish and some booze and black licorice. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and creamy.

Overall, very interesting with a lot going on. Everything doesn't blend real well - the chocolate is a bit too sweet, the roast is a bit too bitter, the black licorice is a bit strong. It would be interesting to try this aged to see if it mellows some. It is a bit pricey at $22 a bottle.

Pours black. What is really noteworthy is how it glugs out of the bottle. Really nice thick appearance.

Smells heavy on the cinnamon. Cocoa follows. Espresso roastyness.

Taste is cocoa and cinnamon. Chilis are incredibly subtle. A very tasty stout. Flavors are well integrated. Slight hint of booze on the end.

Medium mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation.

Great beer here.
