Very nice chocolate flavor upfront with a chili pepper finish. Unfortunately, the body was thin and flat. When I opened the bottle, I noticed that the cap needed no effort to be removed. Maybe a poor seal explains the flatness.
For a chocolate chili stout, this was just OK.
A bit on thin side, body wise and the Chocolate flavor isn't as sustained throughout each sip because of this, one highlight is the Chillies do come through at the back of the throat which is pleasant as the beer goes down. If it had more viscosity, it would be a stellar Stout.
A lot of spice, zero depth.
Thin, no depth, any barrel came through as acidic. Big whiff. Should not have been sold outside of the brewery, if at all.
So much sludge in the bottle the flavor was not good and gritty
Chiles are strong and have a nice finish. A bit too burnt up front to really savor this completely.
Nice chili, but zero barrel and very, very thin. Way, way over priced for the quality.
