Had on tap at Duckworth's. An interesting beer for which the style - "Chile Beer" - doesn't really seem to fit. It really is a solid stout with a bit of spice at the back end. Very dark brown with little head and minimal lacing left behind. The smell is mostly spices, nothing really hot, but kind of a cinnamon/all spice smell. The taste is smooth and light coffee with a little more of the cinnamon effect. Then a touch of heat at the end; just enough to makes things interesting. The mouthfeel on this one is the best I've experienced from Birdsong - a solid stout body with a creamy and smooth finish.

Overall this beer adds up to more than the sum of its parts. Beer synergy I guess. Very happy with this beer as part of the Charlotte beer offering.

tap at Birdsong

Pours jet black with a tan film for a head.

Smells of caramel, coffee, and biscuit malts.

Flavor is of caramel and spiced cocoa along with some light coffee and a hint of vanilla.

Medium body with a light tingle of carbonation on the tongue.

Not only is this a very good stout, it's an exceptional stout given the ABV. Normally I don't expect a flavor and body from a stout like this at anything under 8%, but this is under 6. Very impressive accomplishment.

draft at beer study in chapel hill. into a tulip.

pours a dark opaque black with absoltely no head. smell has a bit of roasted malts but its a tad weak. taste is malty and chocolately. as you get through the glass the heat really comes through. enjoyable but not remarkable. mild body, low carbonation.

overall pretty good!
