On tap at CBC 2016 - day 2. Tons of cinnamon up front, followed by cocoa, milk chocolate, molasses and chili peppers. One of my favourite beers at this year’s CBC.

Black in color with no light penetration. A trace of Brown foam is barely detectable. Aroma is primarily chilies and cinnamon. I taste luscious milk chocolate, cinnamon, and dark malt. The mouth is viscous and the chiles warm the throat and tongue.

2015 vintage; Serving - 750ml bottle into a 12oz. snifter

A - Black with thin layer of tan head
S - cinnamon, chocolate, vanilla, and chiles
T - LOTS of cinnamon, some chocolate and vanilla, a little bit of chilies. The beer develops nicely as it warms up and the flavors come together a bit better.
M - Medium/full bodied with moderate carb.
O - This vintage definitely seems to have taken a step back, rating it where i am because I've had previous years and thought it was fantastic. This one just didn't integrate too well off the bat.
