one year cellared

Pours Deep black, with mocha head, light head retension, silky as it hits the glass.
Mocha head melts away, leaves some legs on the glass.

Aroma: At first this was Chilled to the max and i got an Irony metallic nose up front, after this sat for a half hour, i was able to get The bold cocoa, Deep espresso roast, Brown sugar, Cinnamon and a hint of the Chile ... very sweet molasses and cinnamon come through after a few swirls.

Taste: Almost identical to the Aroma, Great Dark chocolate, Cocoa, Sweet molasses, a hint of the chile right before the cinnamon takes over ending on a combination of cinnamon and dark chocolate.

Mouthfeel: Very viscous, coats the mouth with the first initial drink, creamy, almost like a melted malt. full bodied finishes with a hint of dryness.

Overall: This beer is very balanced for what it has going on, im guessing this beer fresh might be a little over spiced, id like to have this fresh at some point to see if theres more Chile heat. this beer is great , i will be seeking more in the future.

ughh... can't believe this beer is rated this high.

Spice is too over powering and nasty.... to me it tastes very artificial (although probably not).

We had KBS, Grey Monday, and then this... even in this order this beer/spice was so... obnoxiously fragrant and overpowering, our tasting group couldn't finish this bottle.
