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.

bottle. Golden with one finger head. Light body with mild honey flavor. Just a little spice from the peppers and some chocolate flavor as well. There’s a little booze in there as well, but not bad.

Draft. Pours hazy dark gold with a thin white head and no lacing. Tastes somewhat like cider, slightly sweet, slightly sour, like bitter chocolate, bready, dry feel, lightly spiced finish. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like sour fruits, cherries, apples, wheat, malt.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy gold with a thin white cap. The aroma smells of herbal honey and nutty sweet pale grains with a little alcohol kick. The flavor is a bit boozy sharp with some alcohol esters mixed with what’s mostly a pale grain body. Honey throughout and grassy hop notes playing lightly in the finish. A wee peppery heat too. But ultimately overpowered by that alcohol note throughout.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy dark straw color, with minimal whitish head. Light aroma of chocolate and malt. Taste is of chocolate, and the alcohol taste is there too. Interesting and unique brew: I didn’t think there was a chocolate flavor there at first because it doesn’t ’look’ like there is. However, this is a nice, fairly drinkable brew. Thumbs up form me.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bomber to glass mug. Pours a cloudy yellow, with a white head that dissipates quick. Nice lacing. The honey flavor is prominent, but not a lot of nose. I can’t tell at all that any cocoa was used in this. Different.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy, yeasty yellow color with a medium white head. Aroma is grass, lemons, and spices. The taste is very slightly spicy with hints of cocoa and grass. It’s a little hard to pick out the exact flavors flavors, it just tastes spicy. It’s a fairly interesting beer but not one I would get again soon.
