3.83/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5
From the bottle to a pint glass. Pours a slightly burnt orange/amber color with a small white head that quickly dissolves (even with a vigorous pour). The smell wasn't all that impressive to me, mainly spices, chilies, some kind of fruity smell, maybe a bit earthy, and a bit of cocoa. As it warmed it got slightly better but there wasn't much there for me. By smell alone I didn't think I would enjoy this one. Then I moved on to the taste which totally changed my mind of this beer. At first it was bitter but then got really sweet and finished smoothly. It's probably sweet because of the honey. Other taste include chilies, spices, fruits, kind of earthy, and more cocoa/chocolate in the taste which wasn't really apparent until it warmed up more. Slightly above average mouthfeel, kind of medium bodied. At 9% ABV it's a bit high but I couldn't even notice the alcohol in the smell or taste. Pretty drinkable overall but I'd probably only do one of these in a night. Overall I wasn't sure what to expect from this one, but I ended up liking it. I will probably try and pick up one more bottle of it.

Served from an ice cold bottle into a glass. This is another Ancient Ale selection, love these, this one is from the Americas a chocolate food for the Gods.
Appearance: Golden, cloudy with slight carbonation, a half inch head with an aggressive pour.
Smell: I'm getting a citrus smell with some notes of honey.
Taste: I'm getting some coco some heat and sweet from honey.
Mouth feel: Thick not stout thick but thicker than the usual ale. Lots of floaters, ah hell thats the taste baby.
Overall: I would by this beer just to taste some history, plus its damn good so bonus. This beer is at 9%ABV so a nice choice for your nightly night cap, Cheers.
