This pours onyx black with the darkest brown head I’ve ever seen on a beer. The nose has the chilies up front, but there’s a mother lode of other aromas - cocoa, cinnamon, char, vanilla, literally a plethora of notes that blend perfectly.

And they blend better on the taste, if that’s possible. I get the chilies first, probably because I love spicy flavors, and the spice has some bite, but the cocoa and vanilla flavors balance the heat, and then the cinnamon lends a churro quality to this that elevates it to the top of the world-class quadrant. Simply magnificent, IMHO.

04/2014 - Amazing nose of cinnamon, vanilla, wee cocoa, some spice; velvety mouthfeel, chilies hit hard and remain on the palate; sweet, spicy, vanilla on the finish.
