It tastes like they added chalk to a mediocre stout.

Too hot. Heartburn issues. Hid the alcohol well.

Had at a chili beer tasting including Hunahpu's, Chocolate Sombrero, Theobroma, Cocoa Mole, and Ghost Face Killah.

This pours a viscous black with a small dark head. On the nose there are chocolate and chili intermixing in a similar way to the other two chili stouts, though here perhaps there is heavier chili. To me that flavor just doesn't tend to sit well with chocolate, though at least with Huna the quality is more evident. In the mouth the roast intermixed with chocolate and chili, with the chili making for a long finish. The body is medium full.

Overall, like the others, I just didn't care for this beer that much. It's closer to Huna in quality than Chocolate Sombrero. If you like chocolate chili stouts, check this out. I won't be again.
