Spotted this at the local Whole Foods and couldn't resist picking up a bottle!
A: Pours a deep burgundy, topped an off white head that seemed rather quick to dissipate.
S: A beautiful chocolate scent and the full-on aromatic bouquet of what must be the selection of peppers. The bottle describes a scent of cinnamon, and I suppose that would be notable. It's a fantastic scent, either way.
T: The flavour is very similar to the aroma... a complex spiciness, blended beautifully with a creamy chocolate taste, with an added touch of vanilla. Very nice balance, and a nice little bite with the spicy burn on the finish.... just right.
M + D: This is a delicious beer, with a very fine-tuned balance that makes it a pleasure to drink. The body has a smooth creaminess that complements the flavours quite nicely, and the spicy finish rounds that out very well. This is certainly a beer I will be returning to.

A dark brown/blackish body (bad lighting where I had it) with one finger head that goes quick on top of a spicy, chili esque aroma though not too dominant as the chocolate is real strong in the aroma as well. Taste is mostly chocolate and chili but I found a good balance as the beer is a sweet heat, in other words the chilis don't just add a little spice to the chocolate and the chocolate isn't overpowered and letting the beer get too "hot". Chewey, bready, fuller bodied, some minor fruit notes that I can't really placed. Overall, just a really good beer.
Serving type: on-tap
