4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from LCBO. BB 2025. Pours a sludgy dark brown with a dark tan head. The head is moderate in size and drops rather fast. The aroma is... fckn awesome! Red powdered chili! With bitter chocolate nibs! And dark roast coffee! Sweet, chocolaty... the chili is so nice when the beer’s in the mouth, and gets biting in the finish, yet it’s not too aggressive. Just enough for moderate spice-tooths. Soft, smooth, pretty heavy on the tongue. Nearly no carbonation. Aah, it’s so good. No point in eating or drinking anything after this.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from the LCBO. Aggressive pour produces just a minimal dark khaki sheet on top of absolute black. Nose is dark chocolate and espresso, with hints of licorice and vanilla and an ominous chipotle like smokiness lingering in the background. Flavour is lightly sweet with a moderate chocolate and coffee bitterness. The spice of the chilis appears mainly as a warming finish. Mouth is medium+ and oily with soft carbonation and a long warming finish that is a combination of the peppers and the alcohol. Quite complex and the chili is well integrated and not overpowering.
