4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Slightly smoky chocolate with a tiny bit of jalapeno vegetable and promise of spiciness. Opaque black with ruby highlights under a ruddy brown sheet of a fine bread. Smoky flavour is not phenolic with dark chocolate coming in late, followed by a touch of spice and an almost dry finish. Appropriate, moderate to medium bitterness. Medium body, moderate carbonation.

Deep brown pour with a thick dark brown head. The nose is pretty lovely. Rich dark roasted malt, subtle chile and a soft heat. Has a bit of licorice and some salty savoury notes. There’s a little bit of toastiness. Pretty complex malt bill. The heat is well hidden. A touch of leathery character along with a long lingering roastiness. Pretty solid brew really. Long warming finish.

Good smokey taste. You can taste the chipotle when it first hit your mouth and it stays there for a long time. Awesome beer

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - 330ml. Pours an opaque black body with a thin, brown foamy head. Rich, robust malty aroma with chocolate, spicy, and roasty hints. Its strong malty/hoppy taste carries roasted coffee, woody, and pepper notes. Ends with a long, strong, slightly warming bitter/roasty finish. Very interesting.
