This was an extra from KornWallace - mega thanks for this! Pours with a fizzing brown head which disappears once the beer settles in the glass. Aroma is roast, nuts and raisins. Taste is chili hotness at first, the hazelnuts are subtly noticeable afterwards, then leads off to chocolate and roast notes. Finish is warming from the chillies. Medium bodied.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Growler... This beer rocks!… Pours nearly black with no head. The bouquet is an opulent swirl of dark brownies, toasted pistachios, almonds, cinnamon and vanilla. Full-bodied and velvety with only a remnant of carbonation. The flavor offers a delicious medley of hazelnuts, bittersweet espresso, brownie brittle and vanilla. Luxuriant, chewy, hearty finish. Major props to landhoney for popping the top on this world class brew!

This one poured an inky black color with a beige head. Aroma was of roasted malts, some dark chocolate, and light hazlenut. Falvor was similar, hazlenut is not there much, rpetty ashy, and the chile heat hits barely in the swallow.
