MarcoDL (2833) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 26, 2015
Bottle @ ZEBF 2015. This was a nice surprise. Aroma of peppers, roast and cinnamon. Taste is quite diverse, with peppers, cinnamon, spices, bourbon vanilla and some coffee. Very good.

caesar (5771) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 21, 2015
Bottle @ Zeebra 2015, small sample. Dark color, short frothy head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, slight dark bread, some vanilla, pepper. Slight spicy peppery bite in taste, roasty bitterness. Lots of flavor for a 6% beer and not too heavy on the peppery bite. Just very good.

kermis (6866) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2015
Bottle sampled at ZEBF ’15. Pours very dark brown with a ring brown head. Aroma of massive cinnamon, marzipan,fruity chillies, vanilla, dark chocolate and light coffee. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and moderate bitter. Slightly thin bodied as the ABV would suggest, with soft carbonation.

SlovakSniper (3826) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - APR 30, 2015
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.

nimbleprop (5799) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 16, 2015
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.

Bacterial (2164) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - MAR 13, 2015
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.

djd07 (5897) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 5, 2015
Bottle thanks to Brian. Pours a dark brown with small beige head. The aroma is roast, dark chocooate, nutmeg. Thin mouth with strong roast, light heat, dark chocoalte very nice.

Frank (3299) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2015
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.
