Random bottle pick up. Coffee/chocolate aroma. The anchos go really well with the chocolate, cinnamon, and vanilla. Not bad for the ABV. Overall pleasantly surprised for how random of a find this is.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours pitch black with a fluffy, creamy tan head. Nose is definitely some coffee, some sweet, fruity chilli notes, a subtle bit of vanilla. I don’t get the cinnamon on the nose. Flavor is caramel, milk chocolate, vanilla, almost orange. There’s just the barest suggestion of heat from the chilli, but it’s definitely left a fruitiness with the spice coming in just at the tail end of the palate. Really rich and velvety smooth mouthfeel, heavy body. Pretty tasty, lovely use of the chilli.

bottle. Near black with small head. Big chocolate malt. Light heat from the pepper. A bit of vanilla and spice. Just a tad boozy, but not bad for the ABV.
