Bottle poured in to snifter.

A - Poured a thick, sludgy ink black colour with a thin layer of espresso coloured that quickly reduced to a ring around the glass.

S - A big (unexpected) coconut aroma up front that is followed by a big sweet cocoa aroma and notes of char, whiskey, chilli peppers and a touch of smoke. An absolutely wonderful nose.

T - A huge toasted coconut flavour up front that gives way to cinnamon and ancho chilli notes that come through beautifully in flavour without a lot of heat. Sweet chocolate and molasses notes enter mid-palate and balance out the spices nicely. The barrel presence is more muted than expected but adds a nice layer of whiskey and char notes throughout and a touch of vanilla that shows up in the finish. The flavours work so well together and are well integrated with the barrel aging.

M - Full body. Somewhat viscous. Light to moderate carbonation.

O - This beer was flawless.
