Bottle. Pours a hazy, dull apricot color with thin white head and good lacing. Nose is unassuming (light maltiness, a hint of cacao pods). Mouth is creamy and slightly sweet, with an almost Scotchy malty heather note and some faint heat from the chiles towards the back of the throat, then a smooth transition through some honey and hints of cocoa. Finishes slightly warm. Nice

Very interesting beer. Pale straw color with some red hues and slightly hazy. Grassy, musty aroma with a slight chocolate note. Tastes of bitter dark chocolate and slightly bitter grapefruit citrus. Medium light body with a slight alcohol warmth. Interesting beer that really grows on you.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle. Clear amber colour, but there are some large particulates in it. Moderate head. Aroma is mostly honey and chilies. Taste starts with honey up front then finishes with a Mexican hot chocolate burn. Alcohol is well masked. The chili made my lips tingle, which was a nice touch. Overall, very interesting. Not sure if it is beer, but worth a try,

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a one finger head with slightly hazy color with little lacing. Flavor of toasted malt, chocolate, spicy chili, notable honey, at the finish. I am not sure what annatto tastes like, but there is something unidentifiable in the flavor. Moderately sweet with a bit of tartness throughout. Full body with moderate carbonation. Very long full finish with chocolate and chili. Unlike anything I’ve never had before. Closest I can say it is like is like a cocoa mole porter/stout.

Pours a dark yellow color with a fizzy white head. Aroma cocoa, roasted malt, some nuttiness, hints of peppery spiciness, sweetness which is probably attributed to the honey. Taste is a a bit more linear; sweet, bready, cocoa and a touch of pepper but with no distinguishable burn. Chewy mouth feel. I enjoyed this quite a lot.
