12oz. bottle served in a nonic. Pours the color and clarity of cola with a dense, two inch, khaki-colored head. Head eventually settles into an eighth inch cap - some spots and strands of lacing are exposed; however, they exhibit poor retention. Nose expresses smoke and chile peppers with a slightly sweet character that manifests between the smoke and spice. Taste follows nose; however, the flavor profile is a bit more watered down than implied by the nose - the smoke and chiles intermingle nicely without overshadowing one another. Mouthfeel is medium-light in body with an easy, even carbonation. There's a little residual heat in the mouth and at the back of the tongue if the brew is given the opportunity to linger and warm. An interesting interplay of smoke and spice; however, I still enjoy the original offering to the variants. That said, I wish I saved some of the vanilla bean variety to blend as I think it would have created an interesting montage of flavors.
