Pours a pitch-black coloration with a small, creamy head. Smells of chocolate malt, ginger and anise, with a hint of citrus and a certain flowery note. Taste follows the nose, being dominated by rich milk chocolate and notes of ginger, anise and citrus, as well as a certain earthy/musty, flowery note and very light tartness. Finishes with a light bitterness and some spices and very mild heat lingering in the aftertaste. Thick mouthfeel with a rich body and low carbonation. At first I was kind of disappointed at the lack of chili heat and confused by the presence of citrus notes here, until I realized that Szechuan pepper is actually a lot closer related to the citrus than the chili family. Quite fascinating. This is certainly a rather unique and odd brew that still works quite well though. Rather exotic, but well-balanced flavor profile held together nicely by a rich milk chocolate character. The earthy, flowery and slightly tart notes can probably be attributed to the Pu-Erh tea.
