Serving Type: 22 ounce bomber poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Looks great, black, nice tan head with lots of tiny bubbles, head dissipates pretty quickly, nice carbonation.

Smell: A lot of roast from the coffee, smoky aromas from the chipotle, I'm getting more of smoky aroma than anything else.

Taste: Smoky flavor up front, getting the coffee in the middle with some bitterness, spicy chipotle aroma on the back end leading into some spice, a mild spice, alcohol is present at 6.7% but not overwhelming.

Mouthfeel: Lost of carbonation, smooth, dry mouthfeel at the end.

Overall: Great beer, as for spiced beers this and Stone Smoked Porter with Chipotle are my two favorites.

Dark brown w crimson hues. Tan head pops and fizzles slowly to a thick quilting.

Smells of molasses, nuts, coffee grinds, syrup and black licorice.

Tastes of maple syrup, cacao beans, caramel and a nice touch of hops. A hint of wood perhaps? Complex and concerted for the most part.

Viscous and medium with a palpable alcohol heat.

This beer proves you don't have to go big to be plain good and tasty.
