22 oz. bottle. Poured into a New Belgium globe.
Smallish biege head when poured vigorously into the glass. No lacing. Clear brown with ruby highlights when backlit.
Aroma of cinnamon and spicy chilies with cocoa and chocolate malt.
Taste is rum raisin with caramel and sweet chocolate. Cinnamon is assertive but not overdone. Sweet but countered by the chili heat and dark fruit. Complex brew that paired well with spicy fish tacos and beans.
Mouthfeel is smooth with medium body.
I was surprised to find that chili beers are a great change of pace. My favorite Mexican dish is chicken mole enchiladas so I really enjoyed this one. Hotter than Samual Adams chili bock but not nearly as hot as Sigda's from Coopersmiths. New Belgium concocted a recipe that incorporates a traditional Mexican flavor into an awesome ale. Well done!
