3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark coffee brownish black unclear with a big caramel head. It is a bit overcarbonated. The aroma brings a juicy, fresh cut pepper/chile, that really is what dominates the nose. Flavor has the ancho chile as the dominating presence as well, light vanilla roasted malts as undertones. The body is smooth, not as creamy as I would like, but right on for a sweet stout.

Poured from a bomber into a snifter a dark cola brown color with almost no head. Batch #106
Aroma of serious chocolate with slight vanilla & booze cinnamon there.
Flavor is wonderfully chocolate milk. Cacao nibs done well here. Thinking I get vanilla and a highly unexpected zing of peppers at the end.
Balance is exceptional. The sweet the spices the surprise pepper.
This beverage is outstanding. Loviní.
