Ned’s Two-Alarm Cherry Chile Stout (1) 2.28

The Mountain Sun // Boulder, CO ABV: 7.3%

Put on your “Chili Boots”! Our Cherry Chile Stout is medium-bodied with malt flavors reminiscent of chocolate, molasses, licorice and a touch of smoke complemented by the tart, fruity flavors contributed by a blend of Dark Sweet and Red Tart Cherries. Red and Black Morita, Ancho and Guajillo Chiles (harvested deep in the jungle primeval by the inmates of a Guatemalan insane asylum) impart a complex pepper flavor, enhance the smokiness from the malt and add just a touch of lingering heat. While there is a little spiciness, the focus is on the complementary FLAVOR of the peppers, NOT the heat. “Oh, I admit it. It’s only two-alarm, two-and-a-half, tops.”

"Meets the description quite well. This one has some tart at the start along with some malt and smoke. The chili heat seemed to arrive at the end but with a nice, subtle touch."
