3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep black with a thin khaki head. Deep roasty dark cocoa aroma, a little earthy toffee, and a faint and subtle bitterness of light smokey pepper. If the name hadnt implied there were chilis in this beer, I might have not said so, but there it is. Smooth and balanced flavor of dark bittersweet chocolate, a light dash of smokey pepper, and roasty dark sweet grains with a faint toffee undertone. Sweet and smokey with just a faint dash of pepper heat. Very well done.
On tap. Thin light brown head. Tastes much more of smokey than chili, but I like the taste. Also notes of cocoa and almond.
