look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Brewed with ancho chiles, cinnamon, vanilla extract
9% ABV. $5.99 for a 22oz bomber at Total Wine
Pours out to a deep walnut, near black, forming a modest light tan head with good retention and lacing. Carbonation is moderate. The nose is of black walnut, cinnamon, vanilla, carob, and strawberries. The mouthfeel is slick, mildly acidic, and full bodied. The taste is a recap of the aroma. The strawberry is an interesting note. A touch of soy sauce. The cinnamon is rather subdued, as is the chili. Not much heat...very very mild. There is subtle oxidation towards the finish. Overall on the sweeter side. Bitterness is very very mild, as is the roast character.

Serving type: bottle
