Notes/Commercial Description:
In an exciting collaboration, Midnight Sun and Modern Dwellers Chocolate Lounge—a local artisan chocolatier—designed and brewed a very special dark ale that celebrates our strengths—and weaknesses: sensuous chocolate, warm spice, fiery chili, provocative character and amorous mood.

Raw cacao powder and roasted cacao nibs add an earthy element. But every romance needs some spark. Modern Dwellers’ signature Mayan Spice blend provides sultry, lingering heat that seduces the sweetness of the malts.

look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Appearance is cola dark brown with a small spritzy collar, light tan. No lace. Suspect label.

Smell is chocolate, bakers, a little diacetyl.

Taste is chocolatey, but dry, not sweet chocolate, again, bakers. There some faint heat, no vegetable pepper flavor, which I am happy to do without. Mostly on the back of the throat. I thought it would be richer.

Mouthfeel is medium+, not as thick as it looks or I expected. A little still, definitely lacking the classic MSBC mouthfeel, perhaps the cocoa fats are killing it.

Drinkability is ok, this is a solid "mole" style brew. I have to say at first I was thinking it was a little understated, but this actually has some elegance, and therefore, high drinkability (relative to the style).
