With 5 minutes left, drop heat to simmer and add cinnamon, cayenne (1/2 tbs
p) and chocolate or cocoa powder (I think I did 1 cup... wish I knew for su
re).

Tasting notes:

Not carb'ed yet, but I think this one is quite nice. I originally did it with a full tbs of cayenne... it's a bit hot. Sort of overpowers. Not terribly, but it would be better if the spice were more subtle. The cinnamon is so far nowhere to be found. Overall though, it seems tasty.

Nice! Let me know how it turns out... I think that'll be my next brew of this. (Maybe a teeny tiny bit of pepper... but definitely upping the choc and cinnamon)
