look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured into a snifter on 7/9/09
Poured half the bottle - split with a fellow drinker
Bottled in 2009
A - Robust copper color. ½ in head dissipates quickly. Hardly any lacing & it doesn't last.
S - Notes of honey & a dry spiciness from the chilies. Interestingly enough, the nose was not as potent as I would expect.
T - The ancho chilies mostly show themselves with the finish. They offer a dry & lingering spiciness. The heat isn't particularly strong, but it does build on itself. Cocoa is certainly present, but it comes across as kind of tame. I also noticed hints of cinnamon; after investigation, I found that annatto can have a "nutmeg-like quality," which may account for this.
M - Light & crisp mouthfeel which struck me as odd given the ingredients & abv. Carbonation works nicely with the spices. There is an overall dryness that well suits the beer.
D - This is one of the most interesting beers I have had from DFH, if not in general. I could easily drink more. It is kind of expensive, but well worth the price of admission.
