Tasting notes: Big cinnamon coffee nose. Chocolate pie and black pepper on the palate. Smooth and quite creamy. Chile heat spikes a little initially and builds a steady momentum over time. Slight plum-like fruitiness. Medium body with a tinge of booze apparent. Fairly nice robust porter base with a refined peppery spice. Recommended for chile beer afficionados.

A very unique beer with an interesting translucent brownish red hue. The nose is full of cinnamon and a hint of mace. The mouth feel was thin and dry. The flavor and finish make it a perfect desert beer.

Dark amber to brown color. Cream colored head with some lacing. Cocoa, roasted nuts and pepper aroma. Rich milk chocolate up front. Mild chile pepper spice. Dark fruit malt flavor. Hint of brown sugar. Medium body. Slight tingle on the lips. Can hardly tell it's 9% abv. Good stuff.

Dark brown in color. Lots of carbonation. This nearly looks like cola in a glass, just not quite as fizzy.

Sweet aroma. Lots of cinnamon.

Flavor is sweet up front, followed by lots of cinnamon and a slight chocolate touch. A mild pepper heat is noticed in my throat at the finish. The cinnamon leaves this beer pretty tasty in my opinion.

That carbonation I mentioned earlier all but leaves the glass entirely by them time I'm halfway through.

When you first drink if you get the cocoa but in the following you start getting more spice to the taste. Pretty good beer.
