A chocolate chili bock that's 8.5 percent alcohol by volume, the Vixen is a panglobal beer, brewed with chilies from Mexico, cocoa nibs from Ecuador, and cinnamon from southeast Asia. Almost black with a hint of ruby and a creamy tan head, the Vixen boasts a malt-heavy aroma of chocolate and spices -- but not cinnamon, oddly enough. It doesn't taste like cinnamon, either. Chocolate is the dominant accent, the overriding theme. A 22-ounce bottle costs $5.99.
