Style: Spiced ale
Appearance: Cloudy chocolate brown
Nose: Chocolate milk, tiny bit of red pepper.
On the palate: Sweet and medium-bodied. Hot chocolate, chipotle, roasted malt.
Finish: Fairly dry, all things considered. Tabasco sauce, chocolate syrup.
Parting words: This was an enjoyable beer. Not anything close to a go-to, but oddly refreshing and enjoyable after supper on a cold winter night. I haven’t had any other beers spiced like this so I can’t speak to how it compares to others like it, but it is recommended. Probably best to drink at no older than 1 year old, though.
