Bottle from a trade with Matt. Pours black with a dark brown lacing. Aroma of CINNAAAMOON, cinnamon rolls, dark ripe fruits, some spice (from the chili i guess), cocoa powder, brown sugar, cookie dough, some barrel character, vanilla and some weak coconut as it warms - but the main thing is really cinnamon rolls all over the place. This beer gotta be kidding me. The taste is just freakingly slick chocolate, raw cocoa, vanilla, chili, cinnamon rolls, dark fruits, nougat and a lot of wooden whiskey barrel character. I think the barrel and the chili saves this beer from being cloying. The end of this beer is just crazy good just covering your mouth with melted chocolate haha! Really a beer that sticks out for me!

Bottle split 5 ways, thanks guys for sharing! Pitch black pour with a small dense tan head that fades away and leaves small lacings on top. Nose is full of cinnamon, milk chocolate, coconut, vanilla and a tiny hint of the chillies. Taste is really intense, everything melts together in a perfect way. Vanilla, spices, cacao powder, whiskey and then with a lingering hot finish. Very good indeed!

Bottle @ ZZT X shared by kermis. Opaque pitch black color, medium sized medium brown head. Aroma is malts, sweetish, spices, something weird, coconut. Taste malts, spices, coconut, cinnamon, sweet with a bitter touch. Medium body and carbonation. Well, I don’t like it. Way way too much sweetness and sweetish spices. Don’t like it.

MrHangover (2656) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle @ ZZT X, courtesey of kermis. Pours a pitch black beer with a small tanned head on top. Aroma of coconut, chocolate, vanilla. Flavor is quite bitter, loads of cocoa in there and vanilla. Big sweetness going on, alchohol is mellowing out a bit and gives even more sweet flavors going on. Aftertaste is sweet as well. Very decent, but the sweetness is overwhelming.

kermis (5605) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle shared at ZZT 10. Pours black with a small brown head. Aroma of cinnamon, cacao, milk chocolate, bounty, coconut, fruity chilli, vanilla, whiskey barrel. Flavor is heavy sweet but in no way cloying and over moderate bitter. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Excellent and worth the hype, really improving on the base beer.
