Melbourne Bros. Stemmed Tulip
Tasted side by side with Chocolate Sombrero
A ~ Pours translucent cocoa brown with a red hue to it. Thin white head fizzles away quickly. We shined an LED through the beer & it a great Red color, with the light passing through, while chocolate sombrero was Opaque, & more of a mud color.
S ~ Cocoa Powder with an Oatmeal-like backbone...Cinnamon whispers through. Authentic Cocoa scents. Hints of Chile deep in the Nostrils.
T ~ Raw Cocoa, Cinnamon & Bold Chipotle smokiness with a lingering Guajillo & Ancho spiciness. Cinnamon reappears on the finish with slightly sweeter Chocolate notes.
M ~ No booze heat for the ABV. Tingly & Spicy with such a smooth & elegant expression of Chile peppers. Every Chile plays a note here, & you can really feel it on the palette.
D ~ Well Done! This really is one of the best Chile beers I have ever had. The expression of Chiles melds so well with the Cocoa & parallels the light cinnamon notes. Highly recommend. This outshined Chocolate Sombrero, & Clown Shoes is one of my favorite breweries.

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.

I really liked this beer as it combined some heat with some cocoa and cinnamon. Everything works in this experiment as the heat backed the stout like beer and the spices added some sweetness. The Mexican flavour aspect is unique and very cool. I would love to get a bottle and pair it with some Mexican food.
