Bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a soda brown with a small brown head that leaves a decent amount of lacing. Aroma of cocoa, malts, black peppers, coffee and smoke. Taste is cocoa, coffee, smoke, black pepper, and roasted malts. Nice pepper burn in the finish. Full bodied, thick creamy texture, lively carbonation. Very good! Pepper burn is not overwhelming.

Taste is slightly dry and roasted, dark malts, chili, caramel, coffee, chocolate, roasted nuts, roasted grain, hay, dark sugar. Medium bitterness, nice slightly warming chili touch.

2.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Draught at Thai Me Up. Pours black with a nice head and impressive lace. Aroma is slightly sour, dark fresh roast, a little licorice, earth. Flavor is very similar, veering bitter with subdued sweetness, and long earthy licorice finish. Feel is very lively but with a dusty density. Really nice surprise in this one.

Nice. Really nice. Foamy pour. Good not particularly sweet spice. But the kicker here is SPICE! Wow. Really hits you at the back end. Recommended.
