Poured from a 12oz bottle at cellar temp (55F) into an Allagash Tulip

L-Pours an incredibly obsidian black, lighter head then expected (khaki colored) with medium lacing

S-Roasted coffee grounds, chili peppers, dark chocolate

T- Dark slightly bitter coffee, definitely great chili pepper taste (a little spicy), roasty, well balanced

F-definitely full-bodied, spiciness lingers for a bit, creamy, not boozy at all

O-One of the best beers ive tried in 2014

Sweet malt is a bit much, chipotle heat, chocolate.

Nearly black, slightly carbonated and beautifully muddy beer. Nose is reminiscent of a cacao liquor - perhaps Kahlua. The initial flavor is dominated by cherry and chocolate notes as the pleasant chile flavor sneaks in the back door. Mouth feel is a bit gritty but strangely seems to work.
