On tap at BLB.

Served in a chalice with no head. Color is near black.

Aroma: Chile spice, hot, jalapeños, cinnamon, smoke and roasted malts, chocolate, and dark fruits.

Taste: Way more hotness here. Chile and jalapeños. Big spice. Cinnamon, caramel, chocolate, and smoked malts. Reminds me of hunaphus a bit. Good stuff.

Mouthfeel: Spiced and creamy. Medium to full bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends with a ton of hotness.

Overall, a really awesome variation of Smoke. I like it better. The heat is spot on. I am a big fan of spicy food so this was a nice treat.

I was really pumped to get to try this beer. High hopes were not let down. Beautiful dark brow almost black, low tan head. Smells of cooking with chili peppers and some liquid smoke but not as sweet, not bad. The taste department this one cleaned up in. Wow spicy peppers a bit of cinimon and the smoky goodness. Thick on the tounge but not complaining. Drinks way to easy. The spicy kinda kicks in about half way thru but its still worth it.

Draft. Served at Cafe 28 on 1/31/11 by Todd Haug himself for the celebration of 5 years of business. Poured into a snifter a dark black/brown color with a nice 2 finger tan head. The nose is just a smack in the face of aromas including; chocolate, spice, cinnamon, anise, and pepper. All of the aromas also have an underlying smoke note but not overpowering by any means. Medium mouthfeel. The taste again is pretty in your face with a smooth chocolate start followed with a building spiciness that leaves a slight burn at the end. Not sure if it is the spice or the alcohol that causes the burn at the end though. A great sipper but not sure how much of this I could drink without getting severe heartburn! This is one of those specialty beers that really defies a true category. Glad I got to try.
