This beer pours an almost-black color with reddish highlights and is topped by a large, tan head of fairly large bubbles that sticks around for a while. The aroma is chocolaty with some earthy and bread crust notes. The first taste brings sweet chocolate, cocoa, some coffee and an earthy character with a fairly spicy chili flavor in the middle and into the finish. In the finish, some fruity black raisin characters are exposed and the balance clearly shifts towards the malt. This beer showcases a medium body and medium carbonation with lactose and oatmeal notes. The chili pepper finish is prominent, but balances nicely with the chocolate flavors found throughout. Drink this with some chicken tacos and guacamole or Kung Pao chicken.
