Cocoa Chili version at Battle of Wits. Pours a dark brown with small beige head. The aroma is chocolate malt and roast. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet malt and chocolate flavor with a light roast finish. Easy to drink a very good baltic porter from Freetail.

Cacao Chili version tap flight at the brewery. Dark brown pour that you can see through. Minimal head and carbonation. Smells like soy sauce. Taste is quite good. Porter roast with definitely present chili heat. Slippery in the mouth. Best of the 6 samplers I’ve had so far.
