Pours a brownish black with a fluffy white head. The Ancho Chile hits my nose first, then vanilla, not as much chocolate as I would have thought, but it is there, a dark cocoa, and roast. The taste and mouthfeel combine the subtle flavors of chile, cinnamon, and vanilla with the chocolate malts beuatifully, with an excellent texture. Great beer!!

A nice chocolate flavor with just a hint of spice. Great beer experience. There is a lot of interesting flavor happening in this beer. I only wish it was a little smoother.
