#2 Review by PaleAleRider from Winchester, Ontario, Canada
Score: 3.4 | Aroma 6 | Appearance 6 | Mouthfeel 8 | Flavor 7 | Overall 7 |
Pours a very thin head that doesn't stay very long and has a dark amber/copper appearance. Weak lacing. Disappointing to not have the nitro charged version (if it was, very disappointing). Aromas of mild chocolate, malts, spices. The chocolate flavour added in the mix seems to lighten the spiciness of the original Palomar, making it easier on the palate. Some spices for sure, from the chipotle, sweet, hints of lime, resin hops and mild cocoa. Nice warming sensation on the palate in the finish. Overall, seems like a smoother version.

#1 Review by Chopz from Cantley, Canada
Score: 3.5 | Aroma 6 | Appearance 8 | Mouthfeel 7 | Flavor 7 | Overall 7 |
Enjoyed at the Ottawa Brewpub. Pours a clean dark copper colour with a small beige head and minimal lacing. Pretty sure this is not with nitro (no creamy head, not much retention). Chocolate malt nose with coffee cutting the sweetness. Fruity notes eventually come out, like dates, and even some caramel. Silky mouthfeel with no burning at all from the alcohol. Mild tasting with some watery chocolate, also with some prunes and hints of coffee. Light heat comes on the palate in the finish. A nice dark fruit and chocolate brew that goes down well, with that little warming feel from the chipotle.
