look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a two finger high mocha colored head that dissipated within 30 seconds, leaving only a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: There are aromas of chocolate roasted malts in the nose along with some hints of smokiness. Some hints of chili peppers become noticeable as the beer warms up.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of light roasted chocolate along with notes of nutmeg and hints of chili peppers.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a very drinkable chili beer because the peppers aren't that prominent and don't contribute any heat to the taste.

12oz can into a snifter

A: Pours pitch black with two fingers of off white foam that quickly settled to nearly nothing. Horrendous head retention.

S: Cinnamon, nutmeg, and slight chile peppers. I get a bit of milk chocolate in the background. I get really no malt or malt aroma at all, really nothing resembling beer.

T: Slightly smoky chile peppers upfront with cocoa nibs, cinnamon, and nutmeg in the bakcground. Though the flavors are nice, there are really no typical beer flavors at all in this beer.

M: Thin with very low carbonation.

O: A decent drink, but not a very good beer. I really can't taste anything outside of the chocolate, chiles, and spices.

Poured from a can into a snifter.

Appearance: Poured a dark brown/off black with a small amount of head. No lacing.

Smell: Toasted malts, hint of vanilla, some chocolate, that's about it.

Taste: Non descript stout, chocolate hints, slightly woody. I can't taste any chile peppers at all.

Mouthfeel: Feels pretty light, smoot, not much carbonation. Very easy to drink and I would for sure drink this again of it was free.

Honestly wasn't that special, maybe it needs somthing to set it apart but for me it was just another dark beer. I couldn't find any chile peppers in this brew at all.

3.57/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours an opaque black in color with some crimson red highlights visible at the edges of the glass. The beer has a thin (less than quarter finger) beige head that reduces to absolutely nothing. No lacing is observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of cinnamon with some lighter notes of chocolate and chilis.

T: Moderate flavors of dark malts, coffee, cinnamon, bittersweet dark chocolate, and some chilis. There is a light amount of bitterness and chili heat in the finish.

M: Medium bodied with light amounts of carbonation.

O: Probably the easiest drinking beer I have tried in the Chile beer style and it has a nice complexity of flavors to it. Not something I would want to have multiple in a session but definitely an enjoyable beer.
