750 ml orange waxed bottle poured in a FFF mini snifter. 2013 vintage.

A: Pours a viscous, oily black color with a dark tan head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin ring. Some small splotches of lace are left down the glass.

S: Light bourbon with oak. Roasted malts, a little soy with some chocolate and pepper flesh. Minimal heat with some caramel sweetness.

T: Notes of chocolate and bourbon up front with a nice vanilla and oak barrel sweetness cutting through the middle. The chili pepper flesh comes through on the finish with a slight heat to cut down on some of the sweetness imparted by the barrel and the base beer.

M: Thick and oily. Heavy bodied with a medium low carbonation. Sweet with some heat on the finish.

O: Very good and the best De Muerte varation. The chili pepper had a nice flesh and heat to it with out being grassy or vegetal. One of the better beers of the voltron.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. 2013 bottle. #110/417.

Appearance - Black. Back to no head.

Smell - Peppers are quite strong. Chocolate. The peppers are very green.

Taste - Chocolate. Very sweet, but the peppers build. Green peppers. I get a little bit of bourbon and vanilla, but peppers is strongest.

Mouthfeel - Thick and sweet, like the others, but the pepper really cuts the sugar.

Overall - This tastes better than the others. It smells like all peppers, but it's actually pretty enjoyable.
