At Meadhall, Cambridge MA

Black with a khaki head. Smells like smooth roast malt and chile peppers. Tastes like it smells. Some cacao too. Good amount of heat - it's enough to get the chile feel but not enough to be hard to drink. Thick body with low carbonation.

Served in 12oz tulip. Poured a solid black with over an inch (which, when that settled, left me with about 9oz of actual beer?) that had low-to-moderate retention and low lacing.

The aroma was the typical sweet malt of the style, with no hint of pepper. On the tongue the flavor starts out as that of a typical example, but then the peppers kick in harshly on the back of the tongue. The pepper hotness lingered too long to be enjoyable.

The body was very thin for the style. Drinkability will depend on your taste for peppers. For me, this is a one-and-done tick. Overall, an OK brew, that's probably not for everyone.

Served in a tasting glass at the brewery.

A: Creamy mocha head. Opaque black beer

S: It smells like chilies. And roasted malt. And chocolate.

T: Spicy (duh) and chocolatey. Rich, sweet, and enjoyable. The chili cuts the sweetness perfectly.

M: Full.

O: I really enjoyed this!! A bit mild, a bit straightforward, but I like the trend and the example. Recommended.
