This pours a ruddy ruby-black color. Looks good.

Smells spicy—from the get-go you know what you’re getting into.
On first sip there’s barely any spice but then the chili comes out front and center and wallops your taste buds. There’s chili (ancho? ghost!) on the finish as well, leaving you begging for another sip. Spicy and roasty in tandem works for this reviewer.
