Intro: A 330ml can, with a best before date of 24th September 2020. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Dark dark brown in colour with a one finger brown head that dissipated fairly quickly, but left some nice spotty lacing.
Aroma: Light roast, cocoa, chocolate, vanilla, coconut, with a splash of coffee and hints of peaty smoke.
Taste: Moderate to light chili spiciness, vanilla and light chocolate tones.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: Love the chili in this as it’s prominent but not overpowering. However, the roasty malt and chocolate base was not strong enough to match the chili and even the vanilla flavours were showing up in stronger fashion.
