Pours a garnet color with tight, quickly fading white head that leaves a ring of lacing.
Smells of cinnamon and chocolate with a bit of chiles.
Tastes of the spices upfront filled out by the chiles and chocolate. Cinnamon hits first and gives a slight spiciness. Also gives a bit of dryness. Cocoa comes in next with a bit of sweetness to counter the cinnamon. A bit of toasted bread and brown sugar come through as well. The meatiness from the chiles abounds and really adds depth. Ends in a slight spice that gives a pleasant warming.
Mouthfeel is medium-full with a smooth amount of carbonation.
Overall, I enjoyed this more as it warmed up and the chiles really came through. Goes perfectly with green chile burgers.
Serving type: bottle

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
