Pours a dark cola brown color with no light at the edges and a thick brown color head which recedes to skim. The aroma is of cocoa. The taste is of milk chocolate with a hint of marshmallows and then a Chile flavor and burn at the end. The mouth feel is creamy and hot at the end. Overall it was an enjoyable beer. A good beer to try if you see it.

Nice burn on the finish, my only complaint is that's it's not currently being bottled.

This beer looks so dark in the glass, with a dark brown head. But then the taste and mouthfeel disappoint. Not nearly as thick as chewy as it looks. Peppers are on the back end, but get to be just a bit much as you get towards the end of your glass. Still good, but has potential to be better in my opinion.

I generally like EBC but unfortunately I felt this try was a miss. I sent it back after a few sips. Very little chocolate flavor for a "hot chocolate stout" and I found the pepper to be overwhelming. It actually had a burn to it which I did not enjoy.
