Pours black with lingering head. Sweet smell of cinnamon and chocolate, just like it's namesake. Tastes of rich chocolate and cinnamon with a chili kick. A tinge of licorice. There's a decent amount of carbonation with hardly any bitterness. Overall it's a great representation of Mexican hot chocolate in beer form without being hokey or forced. I even feel I detect a hint of lingering capsaicin piquancy? Maybe it's the chili I ate.

Appearance: Nearly a black with ruby highlights. Tan head and almost no lace.

Aroma: Spicy cinnamon and chilies. Truly a Mexican cocoa aroma — faithful and impressive!

Taste: Cocoa and chocolate with a definite chili spiciness and cinnamon underneath it all. Really a good stout with a clever and well-executed taste profile.

Bought in a Schlafly stout sampler 12-pack from the local Aldi
This is an extremely tasty stout from Schlafly.
Pours jet black with minimal brown head
Smells of dry cocoa and roasted coffee malt
Taste is very chocolatey, I mean VERY chocolatey. The chocolate is strong but subtle and sweet.
Very nice feel, nice amount of carbonation, and pleasant aftertaste.
Overall, this is an exceptionally chocolatey and tasty stout. I'm not a big Schlafly drinker, but I really wish I had more of this one.

12oz bottled 11/21/17 poured into a teku glass at fridge temp 6.2% ABV 25 IBU. The beer pours dense black with mocha brown head. The head recedes to a thin cap and ring with no lacing. The aroma is sweet chocolate, cinnamon and a bit of pepper. The taste is dark chocolate, cinnamon and faint pepper. There is no perceived bitterness, as the hops only work to balance the sweetness of the lactose. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, lightly carbonated and mostly dry in the finish. Overall, excellent. This has only been released in the stout bout pack, but it could give that other Mexican hot chocolate style stout a run for its money if released in six packs.

Tastes like Mexican coffee in a stout. Cinnamon and chocolate heavy. Light and quite drinkable.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

Look: Pours a blackish brown color with a one finger cafe colored foam. Excellent head retention and lacing.

Aroma: Gingerbread, cinnamon, graham cracker, coffee, mild black pepper and sweet milk chocolate.

Taste: Flavor follows the nose with more notes of silky milk chocolate, pie crust, cinnamon, soft notes of black pepper, vanilla cream and coffee.

Feel: Soft and bittersweet. Body is light (for a stout) and lightly carbonated. Easy drinking, which is a rare quality you find in a Sweet Stout.

Overall: Superb. Very well balanced without lacking flavor or character. Restrained, but bold flavors of milk chocolate, coffee, cream and cinnamon complemented by light, not overbearing notes of black pepper.
