Nice smooth stout. Not real heavy. Has a cinnamon flavor with some heat.

I got this as a gift. It was spicy on the backside and definitely a beer you sip on.

Excellent mouth feel. The chilies don't over the layers of flavor. Toffee, slight coffee, and mild chocolate comes in. The chilies give the perfect kick.

Pretty outstanding balance of heat (via peppers) and cocoa. Just a perfect snowy weather beer.

On tap at Spokeasy Public House

A: Pours deep brown with a frothy light tan head that settles and laces well.

S: Sweet spice, almost cinnamon sugar like, a little chocolate, and a touch of earthy roasted malt.

T: Spice up front, cinnamon and peppers, followed with roasted malt, milk chocolate, and more peppery spice on the finish, but not overwhelming by any means.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation, nice warmth on the finish, but still quite smooth.

O: I'm happy to see this one back again. Well done spice, very cool (I would say unique but this seems to be the trend now) but well done none the less.

I may be biased in this review. I had this brew GABF week in 2012 in NB's private tasting room. They served it with fresh, locally made Belgian waffles. (yes, the perfect pairing!) I got to meet many of their Brewers and spent most of a Friday sampling oddities along with Felix and Oscar from their oak foeders. The new release is still great! It pours a dark brown with red highlights. Great medium brown lacing. The aroma is chocolate, cinnamon, smoke and malt. The taste is very balanced and dry with a hint of vanilla. Very little heat. The chipotle peppers contribute smoke and the cinnamon punches up the round maltiness. Mouth feel is perfect, between a dry and oatmeal stout. There is a bread-like character to this beer. However, it doesn't scream Fat Tire yeast like some of their other brews like Ranger ect. Very little hop character. Bitterness seems to come more from the cinnamon than the hops. But my guess is it's hopped with low alpha english hops. The beer was out of production for several years. It tastes as good as I remember. I highly recommend it. I've attempted to recreate it on a home brew scale, but I always miss it slightly! Thank you, New Belgium, for bringing it back!

Poured from 22 oz bottle into snifter.

A: Pours a deep mahogany brown with dense two finger white head. Lasting retention and plenty of sticky lacing.

S: Light roasted malts and bitter chocolate. Aroma of a basic porter. Faint spices become more apparent as it warmed.

T: Cocoa powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and light chilies. The spices complement the chocolate nicely.

M: Medium body and fairly carbonated. A touch thin for my tastes.

O: A little disappointing aromas, but tasty brew. Easy drinking.
