Serving: Bottle into oversized snifter
Served: 30 July 2014

Appearance: Pours a hazy, ugly brown color with a dirty off-white head. Beer has a sickly brown color that really makes it look awful. Head doesn't stick around very long and leaves minimal lacing.

Smell: Soft notes of caramel, pecan, and toffee, much like a dubbel actually.

Taste: Similar to the smell but with a strange herbal astringency which I attribute to the inclusion of chili peppers in the brew. The taste isn't awful, but the strange non-beery, herbal bitterness is somewhat offputting. If the brewery is going to include chili peppers, it should have played a much bigger role so there's at least something interesting about their inclusion.

Mouthfeel: Good carbonation results in a relatively soft brew on the tongue.

Overall: In general, this is a beer I really can't rap my head around. Uninspiring at best.
