Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours a medium to dark coppery orange amber with a fine half finger light khaki head with great retention and lots of lacing. Great aroma of bourbon, vanilla, toffee and hints of chile. Flavor follows, dominated by bourbon, caramel and vanilla,with the chile spiciness building and leaving a pleasant light chile bite in the finish. On the sweet side and quite warming. Medium bodied with mild creaminess. An excellently balanced amount of chile for the rich body, with the other flavors nicely masking the capiscum at first then slowly revealing it. Lots of barrel character, with good bourbon and oaky vanilla. I'm a fan of bourbon barrel ales and chile that is well supported by other flavors and this bring it all home. Very tasty. ABV dangerously covered, needs pacing.
