This was a tasty surprise.

Pours a dark chocolate.
Smells of chocolate and vanilla with a hint of spice.
Hints the tongue with chocolate, toasted malt, and cinnamon. the pepper comes next, but it is a subtle tingle and not at all overwhelming. the heat pleasantly lingers on the tongue.
Flows quickly through the mouth. fairly light and thin, but the lactose still gives it some pleasant cream texture.
This is definitely worth picking up. Much more flavor than the abv would suggest.

4.44/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a near pitch black color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap that leaves good lacing

S: Roasted malt, sweet lactose, some cinnamon and pepper spice, and some lighter cacao and vanilla

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the roasted malt, cinnamon, and cacao and then picks up a slight spice from the ghost pepper as well as some lactose and vanilla sweetness. Cinnamon, lactose, and cacao linger into the finish, while the ghost pepper kick really starts to linger between each sip. Never gets anywhere close to overbearingly spicy, though

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Nearing on smooth

O: A great Mexican-style stout that hits all of the right notes. Never too sweet or spicy, just a great medium combination. Super easy to drink, too. Definitely worth checking out
