Aroma is deep chocolate, cacao, barrel, wood, spice, tobacco, etc. Flavour is woody, muddy chocolate, barrel, spice, spicy peppers, lingering for quite a bit. Very weird, but in a good way.

Taste is slightly sweet, slightly bitter, malty and spicy with roasted malts, bitter chocolate, burnt caramel, charred wood, chipotle peppers, dark roast coffee, cinnamon, hay, moist soil, coconut shells, vanilla fudge, crème brûlée and hints of salty liquorice hard candy. Mouthfeel is soft, silky, tiny watery, spicy hot and medium bodied. Finish is bitter, malty and spicy with roasted malts, bitter chocolate, dark roast coffee, chipotle peppers, moist soil, burnt wood, vanilla beans and hints of alcohol. Exciting version of a solid, yet hot, base beer.

In bottle thanks Ben. Pours a very dark brown colour with a decent tan head. Aroma of chillies, chocolate, vanilla and Bourbon. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation, light CO2 prickle and a chalky mouth-feel. A nice chilli bite with lingering cacao nibs and alcohol. Lovely.
