The chocolate and the chili are definitely the dominant flavors here. (More chili than chocolate actually.) Not bad but not sure I'd do it again.

Slightly spicy and thick mouthfeel..it would be tough to get more than one down at a sitting.

Too sweet for everyday consumption, but a tasty beverage nonetheless

A - Deep dark in color, retains thick head after settling, a nice latte color.

S - Slightly sweet and malty.

T - Rich in taste, but I expected more of a chili/heat and didn't get it, but that wasn't disappointing, just unexpected.

F - Never sure how to characterize this category, so overall, I'd say appealing.

O - Very enjoyable, would go good with steak or pork; I would purchase again if they continue to produce.

On tap at the Ale House, Huntington

A- Pours dark brown nearly black color with a small creamy off white head that reduces to a small layer skimming the top

S- cinnamon with a hint of chili, chocolate malt, brown sugar, very sweet aroma overall

T- nice spicy profile of cinnamon with a hint of pepper burn, chocolate malt mixes with molasses and brown sugar

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel, with a slightly warming finish

O- the cinnamon and pepper are well balanced, leaving me wanting more with each sip, well done
