The chocolate cinnamon burst is real. Schlafly’s Mexican-Style Chocolate Stout is the type of beer that you want to curl up in a blanket and drink. Hot chocolate flavors with just a touch of mint dominate, while a low lying bitterness keeps it from becoming one dimensional. In the glass, the beer is a deep dark color with a tan head. There are plenty of occasions to not want a beer like this, but when the occasion calls for a big spiced up beer, few things are better than the flavors Schlafly delivers here. It tastes exactly like you think it will from the name, but it’s not too aggressive.
