This ebony colored beer has a very pungent aroma. It is spicy. This chipotle and cinnamon overpower the other flavors however.

A very unique beer. Pours a brown-black with a tan head. Smell is strange. Spices and chipotle, but not particularly appetizing. Taste is better. Lots of chipotle and some cinnamon. Some spicy aftertaste. Taste is better then the smell, interesting, but couldn't have too much. Had in the can.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 oz can. Pours inky black with a medium pillowy brown head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is subdued - sweet and roasty chocolate malts and grains with some cinnamon.
The flavor is very off - cardboardy, mineral, vegetal malts with some roast and a hint of cinnamon and peppers. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and very watery.
Overall, I don’t know if I got a bad sample, but this was subdued and off. I really like the chocolate chili beers, but this didn’t have much to it.
