I enjoyed this beer on draught at the Beer Trappe in Lexington, KY. It pours opaque black into a snifter. The head is a mocha brown that dissipates quickly. The nose is predominantly roasted coffee followed by rich spicy Mexican chocolate. That's exactly how it tastes, also. Peppery dark bittersweet chocolate predominates over the roasted coffee and grilled breadfruit. There is very little gas in the mouthfeel which is just right, not too thin or too thick. Overall close to perfect. I hope to try a bourbon barrel aged version in the future.

When it first hits your tongue you taste chocolate. The after taste is when you get to the chili pepper. It's a burn, not from alcohol but the actual chili peppers. The longer it sits the more flavors you smell. This is one of the best beers I've had. I would definitely buy it again. I recommend anyone to try it if they haven't already.

Pours black with a dark tan head. Smells of dark chocolate, hot chocolate, dark roast malts and vanilla. Tastes of Dark roast malt, a little burnt, some booziness, dark chocolate, a little pepper spice and vanilla. Some pepper spice, roast malt and chocolate on the aftertaste. Heavy body and medium/light carbonation.

Awesome chocolate smell. Coffee taste really comes through with hints of vanilla, chocolate and pepper.
