On tap at the Rehoboth Beach pub, served in pint glass. Beer is black with a thin tan head of small bubbles. Aroma is a little sweet a little spicy, the peppers come through nicely in the aroma. Some roast some malt. The beer isn't as spicy / chipotle as the aroma would lead you to believe and this is a good thing. It is mildly sweet, a little dry on the finish, a nice beer, I enjoyed it. I would even have it again.

3/9/13

A: Pours out pretty much pitch black. Thin layer of slightly off white head. Forms a collar around the edges of the glass. Not seeing much by way of alcohol feet, but usually hard with a glass of this size.

S: On the nose, I am getting mostly stout like character: coffee, chocolate, licorice, etc. But you do get some of that spice from the chili too. Being a fan of stouts like this, its welcomed.

T: Much like the nose, you get the traditional stout like character albeit muted. It's not over the top in chocolate or coffee being a sessionable export stout. On that back end of the palate, you get that little hint of those chili. Just nice warm and tingle. I enjoyed this one.

M: It's a medium leading to full. It's nicely carbonated and with the lower ABV it doesn't feel as thick as it is.

Exclusive on tap at the brewpub

Pours black with a tan lacing for a head.

Smells of cocoa, roasted coffee beans and brown sugar.

Flavor is of coffee, cocoa, and a hint of vegetable bitterness and chile spiciness. Also some cinnamon.

Medium body with a light tingle of carbonation mixed with a mild spicy sting.

A good enjoyable stout with an added flair of chile spice. Not fantastic, but better than average and worth having if you can get it while it's on tap.
