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 mild chocolate stuff. Light brown. Light chocolate on the palate, sweetish and relatively clean. Light chile in the finish. Bland, uninspired example.

mcberko (16956) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 8, 2012
Bottle at tasting, pours a dark brown with a red tinge and small beige head. Aroma of chocolate, chili, and various other spices I cannot discern. Flavour is a delicate balance of chocolate and chili, with secondary notes of toasted bread. The chili overtakes this at the end, leaving a spicy finish. ABV is hidden. Not a fan of this combination of flavour, at least the way its done here.
