3.05/5  rDev -17.6%

Batch 1. 22oz bottle.

Near-black body with an impressive brownish head. No real lacing but it sort of coats the glass going down.

Aroma of chili pepper and some chocolate notes. Smells sweet.

Flavor is unimpressive. Some slight chocolate with a cinnamon finish. Not much character or depth from the chocolate, the chili, or the bock.

Mouthfeel is very thin but slightly creamy. Carbonation seems fine.

Overall not impressed. Not very much chili, chocolate, or bock going on here.

From notes taken during a tasting with a friend.

A - Poured into a Duvel tulip a nice deep brown almost black with one finger mocha head that fades to leave a light halo.

S - Sweet, light malts and dark fruit with very light chocolate. There isnt much spice at all on the nose.

T - WAY too sweet for my liking. There is some light roast and chocolate . The spice is nice and upfront, which is kinda too bad.

M - A bit too sweet, kinda heavy and syrupy.

O - Beer is okay. Really wouldnt buy it again, way to sweet to be a good bock.
