22oz bottle from Charley's Package (Marietta, GA). 8.99. Served in a Founders snifter.
Pours a copper brown with 1 finger light tan head. A little lacing left on the sides of the glass.
Smells of sweet chilies, mild cocoa and cinnamon. Very interesting and curiously inviting.
Bittersweet cocoa and chilies. Brown sugar and cinnamon. More chilies in the aftertaste with only a hint of burn along with trace alcohol.
Medium-thick bodied with relatively high carbonation.
A unique take on chilies and chocolate. I've had many chocolate chili stouts but this is an entirely different approach. It's a well done chili beer that's worth a try. I think I'll be buying another soon.

Growler from Breeze In, Lemon Creek/Juneau, AK location.
Into a pint glass and a tulip.
A: light golden amber color. One finger white foamy head that dissipates within about a minute and leaves the same sticky slightly coated looking lacing clingy to the sides of the glass
S: where's the chocolate? Huh? no where to be found no matter how much I let it warm, however, there is a slight cinnamon aroma trying to come through and its mainly coming through like an American Blonde Ale
T: a bland malty sort of cinnamon-ness; no aftertaste, and a quick dry finish trying to pummel my tastebuds
M: light to medium, somewhat sessionable, carbonation seems ok for the "fruit/vegetable" style and yes, I realize this is a chocolate/chile beer, but am not getting as much as I had hoped for
O: God, I really hope I'm not becoming a beer critic here, but all I have to say is Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, and this is a growler fill, if it wasn't for the cinnamon, I'd say this is an American Blonde Ale in disguise, I most likely won't have this again and am now wondering about New Belgium - what are they up to these days? Really, guys? What is this?
