12 oz bottle served in a snifter. Date notched BB Feb. 2015 (?; no year indicated).

Pours clear dark mahogany with a fine looking, creamy tan head that mostly recedes too quickly.

Aroma: sweet and a bit boozy, with hints of raisins, dates, cocoa, pancakes, burnt sugar and toffee.

Flavor: Moderately complex with all of the ingrediants readily detectable. Mild but obvious chili presence. Sweet overall, and a bit too sweet up front, but it eventually works out to an acceptable bitter/sweet balance given the chili, chocolate and other flavors.

Feel: smooth mouth feel; very good carbonation; full body with mild chili heat.

O: a sweet but intriguing brew that's certainly worth trying. Did not mix too well with the end of my dinner but worked great as an after meal sipper.

Dark brown with both ruby and copper edges. The nose is mostly malty with slight chocolate undertones. The flavor profile is mostly reminiscent of a mild bock with some faint chocolate notes and a hint of chili heat. This is an enjoyable offering and works well as a little nightcap just before bed.
