Served at Nodding Head on 4/9/11 during the second Saturday of the month beer event: Groggy Afternoon. This one-off of Grog was cask conditioned and spiced in the manner of mole sauce using chillies, chocolate and cumin.
Served in a wine glass, approximately 7-8 ounces or so this brew appeared a dark brown color with a thin ring of tan head that holds close to the edge of the glass and a fine layering of lace that sits both atop the brew and on the glass. A swirl revives a few bubbles from solution.
The aroma of this brew is quite peppered in character from the earthiness of the chillies. It also includes a citrus pepper component. It tingles the nose with a combination of slices and alcohol. The smell of this brew is quite unique for a brew but familiar in a "kitchen cabinet" sort of way.
The taste of the brew is peppery and very earthy. There is snooty citrus aspect coupled with roasted grains. The finish is quite spicy and warming. All together it is a decent mix of flavors with no one ingredient being too overpowering of the others.
This is a medium bodied brew with a low level of carbonation. It was an interesting mix of flavors and unique. At times it was a bit much with the pepper but I've had other examples which were overdone moreso. This was the first time I ever tasted cumin in a beer and I still don't quite know how I feel about it. Of all the different offerings during the event, this was the least enjoyable. I tried to get into it and just couldn't.
