Our third anniversary beer up-sizes Chocolate Sombrero, using extra ancho chile and adding chipotle pepper. We aged the brew 100% in Wild Turkey and Heaven Hill bourbon barrels. May it leap onto your palate majestically, like a luchador who flies into the ring from atop the highest rope.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2013 Bomber bought at Friendly Spot. Pours a deep black with a small tan head. The aroma is peppers, spice, roasted coffee, some chocolate. Very complex aroma. Some sweetness too. The taste was smooth and powerful: chocolate, chilis, bourbon, wow...very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber. Poured black with a thin tan head. Aroma and flavor were roasted malt, some chocolate and coffee, hints of bourbon, vanilla, and chiles. Surprisingly, the chiles and bourbon were quite subtle -- would actually have liked them boosted a bit. Medium to heavy palate.

22oz bottle from Vince, thanks man. Clear dark brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma of chocolate, cinnamon, spicy pepper, bourbon and vanilla/oak. Flavor is rich chocolate malt, bitter roast, boozy bourbon, oak and some vegetal taste. Full body with a long finish. Intense beer, lots of bitterness, alcohol and a light pepper heat.

portableparty (2098) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUN 6, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Pours deep dark brown and looks black once it is in the glass and shows a little khaki head that dissipates to a tiny collar. Aroma has noticeable bourbon on the nose as well as roasted malt chocolate and vanilla and I get some licorice too. Taste is bitter with bakers chocolate some spice and woody bourbon in the finish as well as vanilla and faint smoke. Palate is slick with a drying bitter finish.

Pours dark brown color with light brown head. Aromas of roasted malts and chocolate with some bourbon and alcohol. Dark roasted malt flavor with bourbon and wood. Some chocolate and slightly boozy. Just a hint of heat from the peppers. Full body with minimal carbonation and a slick mouthfeel.
