Borefts 12. Pitch black colour with a small light brown head. Smells bourbon, roasty, some liquorice wood. Tastes sweet, lots of dark chocolate and a bit roasty. Full body and a silky but earming feel.

Black, thin brown head. Smells awesome - coffee, peppers, and cinnaon. Taste is chocolate cake, coffee, and some pepper heat. Really well made and almost decadent. Thanks to rougeau13 for the trade!

Poured from 750mL bottle into the jester king eponymous snifter. Aroma and initial taste are very boozy. Pours purple-black with almost no head. Leaves no lacing. Little carbonation and it coats the tongue. Very velvety mouth feel. The chipotle is very forward. It dominates the palate. Some coffee, chocolate and tobacco notes on the back. I had this on cask at the brewery and it was unbelievable. But the bottle leaves a lot to be desired.

750 bottle. Pours almost flat with no appreciable head. uh oh I’m thinking Lost Abbey.....big chocolate roasty nose. Taste is very full, with lots of roastiness, bitterness, chocolate, and a moderate alcohol bite. No carbonation-flat. Is this beer meant to be like this? I like the taste but give me a bit of carbonation on this one guys. Good overall but minus points for being flat.

750 bottle poured into a tulip glass. Thank you Alabama for passing the gourmet bottle bill! Pours black as night with no head. Nose is booze, coffee, chocolate, tastes milky stout! Almost no carbonation. Not a bad beer, just not my favorite style.

The beer pours a very dark brown color with a small brown head. The aroma has a lot of coffee in it as well as some roasted malt and a hint of chocolate. The flavor is similar. The coffee really stands out, along with some heat and spice from the chipotle peppers. I also get some earthy notes as well as some chocolate and roasted malt. Thick mouthfeel and low carbonation. A very nice beer, glad I got to try it.
