COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Black Phoenix melds rich bold coffee with the smokey flavors of chipotle peppers, giving it just a touch of heat. To insure the freshest coffee available, we had our local Orange County friends, Kean Coffee, custom roast a batch for us. Notes of chocolate complement this complex and bold stout. This special release will only be available in limited quantities so enjoy it while it lasts.

65 cl bottle @ ISKTR ’16
Aroma is musty with metallic tones. Flavour has licorice, saltiness, some peaty(!) notes and coffee. Nice. A bit foamy palate. The chili here is moderate though.

KansaiBeerLvrs (5153) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 27, 2016
Bottle from Nie. Chipotle Coffee Stout 6.7% sweet red berry and pepper with soft coffee in the aroma. Medium to light bodied. The taste is very berry - probably oxidized, some chocolate, a bit of heat that is cumulative and some coffee in the finish. I liked it well enough.

The Pigs Ear wrap up tasting at ChrisO’s. Clear deep red - amber beer, thin pale head. Palate is smooth and semi dry. Decent fine carbonation. Tangy dark malts, some fluffy malt cream. Mild coffee. A chilli burn begins but never gets too much. Tangy dark fruits. Light semi dry finish. Just another chilli stout. Okay.
