1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 oz can. Pours inky black with a medium pillowy brown head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is subdued - sweet and roasty chocolate malts and grains with some cinnamon.
The flavor is very off - cardboardy, mineral, vegetal malts with some roast and a hint of cinnamon and peppers. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and very watery.
Overall, I don’t know if I got a bad sample, but this was subdued and off. I really like the chocolate chili beers, but this didn’t have much to it.
