Hitachino Nest - Espresso Stout -11.2 fl.oz
Samuel Adams - October Fest - 12oz six pk
Ale Smith - Anvil Ale ESB - 22oz

Bootleggers Brewery - Black Phoniex - 22oz

Interesting beer, to say the least. Dark brown color with a tan head that thins out leaving tinny bubbles around the rim. Coffee and chocolate aromas on the nose. The chipotle seemed to be released as the beer warmed up. On the front, coffee and chocolate dominate as does roasted malt. The pepper presence really comes through on the finish. Half way through my glasss, the heat really seemed to intensify. I thought it had a medium mouthfeel for a stout. Nice carbonation. Love the fact that brewers are taking many risks these days. This worked and I'm looking foward to many more ventures from Bootlegger's Brewery. 85 of of 100
