Black Phoenix melds rich bold coffee with the smokey flavors of chipotle peppers, giving it just a touch of heat. To insure the freshest coffee available, we had our local Orange County friends, Kean Coffee, custom roast a batch for us. Notes of chocolate complement this complex and bold stout. This special release will only be available in limited quantities so enjoy it while it lasts.

Dark pour and dark malt aroma. Coffee flavor similar to a mild Belgian roast. Finishes dark malt bitterness without being astringent.

"At first, I was wishing this were an imperial. A sturdier backbone would do wonders for this beer. While that still holds, this 6% stout opened up VERY nicely. Not getting any real smokuness from the chipotle peppers, but the interplay and balance of coffee, pepper, and roasted malt was great. Smooth brew too

Ah, finally! About time I had something good tonight, thanks at Rachelle for the bottle. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a black color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. Tight speckled lacing graces the sides of the glass. The smell had a bold blast of roasty robust coffee bean backed up by a light chipotle /peppery heat - quite enjoyable. The taste was really balanced well between the coffee and the chipotle heat. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body. Decent dry texture pervades nicely with the heat settling in underneath. Overall, good stout with chipotle heat adding a nice complexity. Would have again if I could get it.

GenDV138 (5511) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - AUG 29, 2014
22 oz bottle poured into a Spiegelau tulip. Black with half a finger or so of light tan head. Aromas of coffee, light chipotles, caramel, light vanilla. Tastes of dark chocolate, coffee, light chipotles, some sort of lactose like note that I’m not digging. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Medium carbonation, semi-watery mouthfeel. Not quite there for me.

22 oz bottle. Pours a hazy dark brown with quickly fading beige edge head. Aroma is roasted malt, peppers, and spicy notes. Flavor is overall sweet with notes of roasted malt, hot peppers, and a slight coffee complexity. Finish is dry, spicy and slightly woody. From notes 1/23/10 (Geist Dark Lord Tasting).

Shared with Zach over some wings, pours a dark rich black pour with a java colored head. Nose is malt and dark roasted coffee. Taste is malt and peppery and very drinkable. Not a heavy stout at all. Finish is peppery as well and ends on the same tasting notes. Descent by all means. Quaff Score 8 / 10
