A rich brown ale inspired by the enigmatic monastic brews of Belgium, and the mysterious mist shrouded jungles of the tropics. Brewed with real cacao, and spiced with cinnamon and sweet orange peel for a sensual delight. A brew to be sipped, savored, and enjoyed!

Tasted on 9/8/13 from a capped 750mL bottle purchased at Lush West Town a couple years back. Pours hazy dark amber with a very thick tan head that slowly recedes to just thicker than average lace. The nose is nicely tart with wine vinegar, brown sugar, orange peel, and a touch of baking spice. The flavor is not quite as sour as expected, but nicely tart with the same brown sugar, orange peel, baking spice, and just a light touch of pleasant bitterness. The body is medium with a tannic texture, average, but stinging carbonation, and a long tart and lightly bitter spiced finish.
