Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer, aged with Chili de arbol peppers in the barrels, is one of a series of innovative specialties to sneak out of our Dragon's Milk Cellar. The earthy pepper character mingles with the dark roasted tones of Dragon's Milk as the spice slowly warms your palate, pleasantly contrasting the deep malt character. Pairings red meat, smoked foods, balsamic, rich cheese & dark chocolate.

22oz bottle poured into glass.

Appearance: Pours a dark brown, almost black, with a tan head that lingers a little bit.

Smell: Smells pretty much like standard Dragon's Milk - bourbon-y and sweet. No chile smell of note.

Taste: Now THAT is interesting. The fire from the chiles and the sweetness of the base beer make for a very unique pairing. Remind me of a vanilla-y, bourbon-y version of a mole sauce. Definitely has more heat to it than the jalapeno IPA from Alaskan from earlier this year. The alcohol really doesn't smack you like in the base beer, other than the bourbon notes.

Mouthfeel: Pretty clean overall. The fire lingers longer than the sweetness.

Overall: If they made this in 12oz bottles instead, I'd be down with that, but 22oz is a lot of fire. Still, I like it.
