I feel lucky I got this brew in a BIF then the guy decided to stop shipping brew out on his other commitmentsí. So here is to all you guys who got the short in of the stick. I hope the senders brews the sender got all were infected and drain pours. I split this glass with friends and poured into snifters we were greeted with big old tan head that didnít quit, on top of a black bodied brew.
The aroma of rich dark coffee dominates this brew with a slight chipotle coming up in the back end. In the taste department you get a lot of coffee at first. I think if this was marketed as a coffee brew alone it would be fantastic but the chili pepper is under done a bit. There was some but I really had to think about it to pick it out. I think it just needs a touch more chili the concept was great but it didnít quite come thru for me.

Good ending night as you pass out ? Leaves a good cocoa flavor in residual flavor. Like drinking a night cap

Pours very dark with a half o finger head. Aroma is smokey, coffee, some chocolate but not too much chipotles. In the taste I get some roasted coffee, smoke and a hint of chipotles in the end but not overpowering. No alcohol feel on this one. The body is medium to light, more like a Porter that a Stout. Overall, is a good beer but needs more complexity. More Coffee and chipotles would do it for me.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours black, and has a rim of light tan foam and quite a bit of clarity. Smells of herbal hops, some some, some soily dust, bits of coffee and some cardboard. Taste is empty, watered down stout with toasted and roated malts, some coffee, a little too much smoke flavor, some hints of coconut and weedy. Mouth is empty with alittle too hi carb and an off dry finish. Okay beer. My wife really dug it so she drank most of the bottle.

Nice cola brown color with off white ring. Lots of chocolate and heat in the nose. Toasty malts, chilis, and bitter coffee. Pretty well balanced. A little to carbonated for me.

I didn't notice chilies. Very very subtle. Toasted prominent. No aroma nice lasting head. In general not to exciting.
