COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Small Batch Series
The Vixen is smooth and rich with an enticing touch of sweetness that ends with a spicy heat. For this unique brew we used carefully roasted malts and dark cocoa nibs for a full bodied and slightly sweet flavor. To this roasty and chocolaty base we added an element of warmth and spice with cinnamon and chilies. Dark and alluring, this brew will keep you captivated.

The aroma is chocolate, brown sugar, light cinnamon. The appearance is brown, slightly translucent, reddish hue, cream colored head. The flavor is chocolate, brown sugar, cooked vegetable. The finish is noble hops, and after a second, slightly hot pepper. Medium to medium/thick in body. Not nearly as much spice as expected. Itís fairly subtle throughout, which may actually be a good thing. Good overall.

degbert (1131) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 13, 2011
Bottle. Pours very dark brown with a high, cinnamon head. The nose is light -- chocolate syrup, coffee, and nutmeg. Cocoa on the front of the mouth, and finishes with a chili note thatís more vegetal than hot -- Iím a weenie, and I donít get much heat at all. Finish is long and elegantly chocolaty. Good, but I wanted more chili.

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 13, 2011
24 ounce bottle from Wine & Beer Westpark. Pours a clear (I think) dark brown color with a thin dark brown head. Decent head retention. Aroma of peppers, cocoa, chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon. The taste is chocolate, peppers, vanilla, cinnamon, faint fruit notes and a mildy bitter hop finish. Medium bodied.

Tmoney99 (10722) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 13, 2011
Bottle. Poured dark brown color with an average to large frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy dark choclate and spice aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy spice and chocolate flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Very good complex brew.

BillKismet (3334) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 11, 2011
Deep brown color with a browned cream head that quickly thins out to a thin cover that bubbles up around the edges. The bouquet is characterized by pleasant melanoin and chili fusion with soft overtones of chocolate roast. Subtle chili flavor across a chocolate melaoiding body. Quite well-crafted. Alcohol is kept completely in chek. Balanced yet complex. Chocolate salt finish.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - NOV 11, 2011
Bottle poured into glass. Dark brown with a thin beige head. The aroma is mostly chocolate malt. The flavor is slight sweet with hints of chocolate and the slightest bit of chili on the back end. Really nothing special.

bottled, velvety dark brown with tan foam, chocolatey aroma with a very similar flavor to the regular chocolate bock, buy the winter pack instead

Pours dark, lots of thick head, complex but somewhat weak aroma that hints of malt, fig, and hops. Taste is subtle but also somewhat complex. I think the odd ingredients are detectable at about the right level. Nothing jumps out, but the cocoa, cinnamon and the peppers are there. Mild heat from the peppers. Finishes dry, only slight bitterness, and just a lingering bit of the flavors of the beer. I actually think this works pretty well, since normally shy away from beers with odd ingredients. Overall, I like it, and would probably be tempted to buy one or two bottles when available.

Poured 22 oz into a pint glass. Appearance was almost black color with a roasted brown head. Nice chocolate favors and aromas. I didnít get any chili favors. Great beer specially since it is less than 5 bucks.
