Beer Description:
Channel Ocho is an extra-strong dark ale, judiciously spiced with chipotle peppers, cinnamon and cloves for a mild heat that tickles the tongue, and a warmth that lingers after sipping.



History & Style
Inspired by a recipe for Mexican hot chocolate, Channel Ocho is born of brewer Brian’s nostalgia for Mexican cooking. It is strong and dark, with Abbey Ale yeast imparting natural peppery, spicy character, intriguing earthiness, and some fruit notes. Organic whole chipotle peppers, cinnamon sticks, and whole cloves add heat and complexity to this unfiltered ale.



Tasting Notes
Aromas are earthy, with cocoa, spicy cinnamon, smoky chipotle and sweet chilies. Hints of stone fruits and banana esters in the background. Flavour is simultaneously earthy and spicy, with raisin and fig notes. Dark mahogany colour, with low to medium mouthfeel. Finish is warming courtesy of the higher ABV and spice complement.
Food Pairings
Chicken mole, tacos al pastor, chili-spiced cheeses, fruit flan.
