3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Southern Sun during Stout Month. Pours a a dark brown with a half finger of tan head, essentially no lacing. Aroma is chilies with noticeable heat, vegetal, with roasted malt/dark malt and hints of chocolate in background. Flavor is sweet up front, fading almost immediately into mild to moderate heat, roasted chili, and sweet vegetal tones, Finishes very mild roasted and dark malt. Seems like stout character is somewhat dominated by chili flavor. Soft to moderate carbonation and medium-light body. This beer has a nice level of heat, not over the top. Enjoyable, but could use more stout character.
