Had to do it. Pours cloudy tea colored with a etched surface of tan. Smells of wheat, coriander, cinnamon, some milky smells. Tastes like powdered cocoa, wheat, a bit of charcoal, some more coriander and a bit of fucking terrible. No, it's just terrible. Thin with hi carb and a dry finish. This is just really disappointing from such a reputable brewer.

This looks interesting:
Into a pint glass:
A: cloudy muddy brown colored body that leaves a nice two finger white foamy head that lasts for a good two minutes before slowly dieing. Lacing shows after the head concaves into the body, nice and spider-webs. The body is too dark for any carbonation to be seen rising.
S: chocolate and wheat combined decently up front, but something didn't smell right
T: basically the same and comes out extremely bland (anyone remember the old Wendy's commercial "where's the beef?", ok right here I'd like to say "where's the flavor?"). In other words, whatever happened in the smell didn't happen in the taste ... ???
M: light and super watery, with nothing harsh on the tongue, but nothing exciting
O: ok, it says on the side of the bottle, there's chili and spice, and once again, I'll use that old Wendy's line, "where's the [chili and spice]?" So if this is supposed to be so complex with other flavors, where are they? In retrospect, I will say fitting name as this will be the "end of the world" for this beer. Cue Dierks Bentley - "what was I thinking?"
