Mexican chocolate with some hot pepper spice. Outstanding!
The pepper notes tend to hit the tongue more as time goes on... great with a sharp cheese.
deep honey smell and taste.
Catching up from Saturday's tasting. I gave this a pretty good rating, was pleasantly surprised with this. Chili spice just about perfect.
Pours a beautiful, cloudy orange amber. Has a perfectly sweet aroma with almost no lacing. Very complex taste with a fizzy, sweet, and in a tiny way sharp flavor. An excellent sipping beer, I strongly recommend using a snifter glass. An instant favorite, and for me a rare 5 out of 5.
One of the least interesting I've had from Dogfish and I know it shouldn't be. Good thing I bought another bottle from the same run to see if it's me tonight or handling from Delaware to Washington to Montana.
chili and chocolate. overbearing in large quantities
Great as an after dinner beer or dessert beer. Chilies show up in the middle and smooth out into dark chocolate
Love this beer. Amazing cocoa flavor and scent, perfect balance of complexity and scent. Love love love this beer!
Hints of cocoa with just a touch of spice that sneaks up after you swallow.
Interesting. Starts as a sweet taste. Hints of chili about midway. Gains some sweetness toward the end.
Unreal that this isn't rated more highly. As a hop guy, this one has great flavor - let it warm up some though. Once warmer than cold, the cocoa nibs and chili spice come out. It's alright if you drink it fast, but way better than 3.5 if you let it warm up. My favorite of the DFH ancient ales.
My favorite beer 2 years ago 2012. It's complexity stemming from wonderful cacao not lend to its dry coco powered texture. Then alcohol and subtle chili notes set in with rich character. And you would tell from the appearance. It's a beer geeks beer.
Very good brew. Smooth, great aromas and great taste.
Surprises you with the golden color. The chocolate is in the background but present, along with a honey taste and some spice I can't place. Very drinkable despite the high (9%) alcohol content.
This one could be my favorite Dogfish ale. Very smooth and good.
Nice cocoa flavor
IIRC this is based an old Aztec beer recipe. A lot of people say it's a chocolate beer but if you're looking for a rich chocolate flavor you won't find it with this wonderful brew. A better description for it would be that it has a hint of cocoa.
When you first drink it you can notice the honey. As it settle you notice some other flavors with a really interesting ever so slight tartness at the end.
Doesn't really taste like chocolate, but there's definitely a hint of it in the flavor. The taste is a bit complicated, for lack of a better term, but good.
Really interesting. Like a lager initially but all the flavor comes in the finish. Chocolate, honey and chillies. Light and refreshing.
