Pours an opaque black with a foamy super dark brown head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small patches of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, cinnamon bark, and some dirty pepper aromas. Taste is much the same with cookie dough and char flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that has a lot going on ingredient wise but mainly comes across as charred and roasty in the aromas and flavors.

12oz can poured into a Chimay goblet.
A: Pitch black pour. Creamy beige head takes its time,but eventually settles to a thin cap. A delicate ring of lacing circles the glass.
S: Semi sweet dark chocolate, smoke and soot, faint whiffs of black pepper, dried chilis, and cinnamon. Not much 'pop' on the nose.
T: Smoke and soot up front. Bakers chocolate. Faint cinnamon. Flash of clove and some oily hops. The chipotle contribution is very downplayed, just the slightest hint of peppery warmth on the back end. Cola. Touch of candidate sugar fruitiness. Dry chocolatey and sooty finish with the slightest hint of chipotle heat.
M: Rather thin and light. Slight creaminess, but it lands on the watery side. Gentle scrubbing carbonation.
O: About as complex as a doorknob. Adjunct contributions are weak and uninspired, yeast character is seriously lacking, and the body is too thin and watery. A lot of bells and whistles on paper, but in the end this is an exceedingly average beer. Maui needs to go bigger and bolder all around with this one.

This beer looks great off the pour. Completely dark with a large brown head. Nose is roasted malts. Flavor brings a bit of the same with an almost fruity edge to things. Kind of like mellow blueberries, in a stout kind of way. Pleasant to drink and a nice stout. I like it.
