This beer poured with a thin, darker brown head. Beer color is a very blackish brown, and no light shows through when the glass is held up to the light. The aroma is spicy - some definite chile notes, with some other spices in the background. Some cocoa as well. I am not getting any real heat in the taste, but the chile flavors are definitely there. There is an underlying sweetness, some cocoa and other spices. It feels a bit thin in the mouth; not the heavier, malty feel you expect from a stout. The aftertaste leaves you with peppers and maybe a little cocoa. Definitely one of the more interesting beers I have tried - the melange of flavors does remind you of a molé sauce.
