Appearance: Pretty well a deep black, with quickly dissipating head and no lace to speak of.

Aroma: Enticing mix of chocolate roastiness and a light hint of something…peppery. It’s subtle, though, so don’t expect some kind of “chili beer” nonsense.

Taste: Sweet and oh-so-smooth, with plenty of toasty cocoa tones and, again, the undercurrent of chills. Nothing here is really in the neighborhood of “spicy”, but this is an easy to drink treat, and with the addition of milk lactose, a really smooth, creamy beverage.

More points to Ska for crafting a stout that stands out from the pack, and though it is experimental, this is easily the best of it’s kind I’ve ever had. Will enjoy again, yes!

Something for cooler weather, and something to clean up dinner, a spicy stout. Out of a 12 ounce can, on to the beer:

The ink black color is something to look at, though if you're expecting a head, look quick because is dissipates very quickly. The pleasant aroma tickles the nose is spicy hatch chiles and cocoa. It's delicious to say the least, not overspiced nor weak. In fact, it reminds me of a lighter Xocoveza, and those cinnamon, chile, and brown sugar notes really turn me on. It's in between light and medium bodied, and despite fuzzy carbonation, this is a beer that I will be looking forward to meeting again.
