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.

Bottle: Poured a dark black color ale with a nice brownish foamy head. Aroma of roasted malt with some cacao notes is pleasant. Taste is also dominated by some roasted malt with cacao notes and some musty notes that are also noticeable. The chili notes are very hard to distinguish which is somewhat of a letdown. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Not bad but not necessarily great either with the chilies notes not coming through strong enough.

Shared at a 10K review beer tasting; drank from a Hill Farmstead stemmed snifter.
Thanks to iguenard for the bottle!

Pours dark black, with a small mocha head and a bit of lacing. The nose is dominated by dark roasted malt, bitter, burnt coffee. On the palate, it tastes of dark roasted malt, cocoa nibs, espresso; it is dry and a little bitter/burntand a bit of hot alcohol. It has a full mouthfeel and moderate carbonation.
