Petite bouteille qui crache un liquide très noir et passablement épais ou visqueux. Belle tête brune qui se transforme trop rapidement en anneau. Au nez, biscuit gaufré au caramel, glaçage de gâteau au café moka, vanille, cannelle et muscade, chocolat et noix de coco. Superbe création olfactive : le bourbon est totalement intégré ou peut-être fantomatique. Au goût, chaleureux piments et cannelle fraîche qui secouent toute cette richesse maltée et bien embrassée, cette fois-ci, pour un bourbon bien caramélisé. En bouche, le corps du liquide est bien structuré. La texture est veloutée et le pétillement contribue à la belle diffusion des saveurs. En finale, le piment est bien dosé tandis que la cannelle apporte une chaleur salvatrice. Très bon. Je dirais même plus, excellente.

12oz bottle pours an inky black with some creamy, beige head. Nose has a ton of cinnamon stick off the top, almost like cinnamon toast crunch, a lot of brown sugar, that grainy Mexican chocolate, heavy vanilla bean, molasses, caramel, horchata. Flavor is the same, almond milk horchata, cinnamon stick, molasses, turbinado sugar, caramel, mild licorice. The chile is there, warms the mouth, peppery on the lips. Some coconut barrel sweetness too. Sounds like it would be a catastrophe, but it honestly all works well together. Finishes fairly smooth.

What a nice surprise! Dark brown pour with a slight tan head. Massive coffee, chocolate and coconut nose. A slight bit of cinnamon in the nose as well. Hot spicy taste - not overpowering, but hides some of the more subtle characteristics I was smelling. Really nice.

Nice lighter BA beer. Lots of cinnamon, cherry and vanilla on a backdrop of roast grain and coffee. Nice and well rounded with lots of real stout character with a great addition from the barrel aging and spices. Creamy texture but still drinkable. Real good beer.

12-oz. Thanks, T! Wow, what a crazy treat. Pours a murky dark ebony, near black. Dense and creamy tannish head. Smells like a cookie and a bourbon...or a chocolate covered pepper with vanilla frosting...no, wait, it’s changing again. Base beer, barrel, pepper, and chocolate character on a carousel. Incredibly dimensional and forceful, especially for the ABV. Creamy thick body, soft carb. Sweet chocolate and bourbon up front, no habanero until the tingle at the finish. Great combination of sweet, heat, boozy twang, and attractive chocolatey base beer. So nice.

This beer really surprised me. I was not expecting it to be as good as it was. Great looking in the glass. Aroma of peppers burns your nose a bit. Lots of chocolate. Mouthfeel is just about perfect. Taste matches aroma. Just a kiss of bourbon. Maybe, more bourbon would make it better, but is excellent. A must try, and only 6%. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
