Poured into a pint glass. Label says bottled 3/2012.
A- Pours a hauntingly pitch black color with a 1/2 inch dark tan head that retains slightly before retreating to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a light sheet of surface foam. Full ring of drippy lacing.
S- Immediate dark chocolate and coffee aroma with a high amount of roast. Some caramel sweetness.
T- Dark roasted coffee and dark chocolate dominate the flavor but there's an admitted sweetness and, after multiple sips, a noticeable capsaicin burn from the chilies. Alcohol is certainly present but melds with all the other characteristics well. A tad bit of licorice.
M- Probably the most exciting part. Creamy and slick but with a lingering bite from the chilies. Medium low carbonation and an intensely robust body.
O- Although it's an idea that's been done before, Clown Shoes hit the nail on the head with this one. I'm going to be pretty bold in saying that it ranks up there with the Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti, that's how nice it is.
