4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A - Pitch black body with a big fluffy mocha head slowly sink to a creamy film.
S - Chipotle comes out immediately along side semi sweet chocolate, coffee grinds, hints of anise, light hickory smoke, and chocolate liqueur.
T - A mix of dark and milk chocolate, with a steady presence of chipotle creating mild heat on the tongue and back of the throat. The pepper becomes more smokey towards the finish.
M - Silky and smooth feel, creamy carbonation, dry and warming finish.
This exceeded my expectations. Perfectly balanced flavors. Chipotle was not over or under used and melded perfectly with the big chocolate malts. I didn’t want the bottle to end. Picked it up out of state, wish I would have bought more than one.

330ml bottle. pours a slightly murky brown with a thin tanned head. aroma is a little odd. slightly nutty, sweet and bready. but the taste does as described. chipotle chilli is hidden well at first but comes through after a minute or two. not overpowering and just a little spice. nice.

Pours balck with a brown head. Hops and dark malts in aroma. Notes of dark chocolate. Taste is hoppy at first, then malty (coffee and chocolate). The aftertaste is quite spectacular with notes of smoke, bitter dark chocolate and some chili. Got this courtesy of a friend who did not care for it at all.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Very good pour with a thick head. Rich aroma of smoke and chocolate. Luxurious body. Flavour is smoke, chocolaye, salt before the chilli rears it’s ugly head and ruins everthing. The chilli was too harsh and masked the other flavours. Would be a stunning beer if the chilli wasn’t being a dick.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft at Hop & Vine, Portland. Pours very dark, essentially opaque. Very slight tan head. Very little aroma, maybe a hint of chocolate. Lively mouthfeel, rich and malty, spice and chocolate rolls in at end of finish. Yeasty burn in finish as well, but not too spicy overall, add in a slight bitterness to a very complex finish and this one’s a winner.
