Ditmier brought out this big ole 750 a short while back.. very cool.. thanks Eric!!

Pours with a dark deep brown head.. the brew is the expected black with good retention and lace... thick on later pours.

Aromas are all over the place with dark chocolate and lite vanilla.. bits of char and some background chili aroma.

Flavor begins with chili spiked melted dark Hersheys.. espresso and black malts.. something that I can only derive as cinnamon (minor).. dark dried fruits and leather.. some tobacco shows with the sweet warmth... The chilis are about right for me.. I could even stand and enjoy some more.. Digging this one for sure... Pretty thick body and a lighter than expected carbonation... Very nice.

4/4/4.5/4.5/4

Thanks Eric... just another amazing brew from a better BA.

I honestly was kind of disappointed with this one. Had a 2013 bottle not too long ago and thought it was good, but not amazing. Maybe the spices and other flavors had dissipated but I just didn't think it lived up to the hype. Xocoveza is a great alternative and so easy to get now.
