BBB63 (6152) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle: Lots of cinnamon and coffee with a fair peppery kick and light handed bourbon. The body is better than I remembered but still could use a touch up as could the integration of the barrel. All that said, this beer finally match the expectations I have had in the past. Very nice brew that is in my wheel house.

12 oz. Bottle in a trade with fishmich. Pitch black color with no head at all. Aroma is abundant amount of cinnamon,and nutmeg. Underlying notes of chocolate brownie.

After sampling the base stout I have to say that the barrel aging only really accentuates the spices and heat from the habaneros. The coffee bean is more noticeable in this version then the base stout. The barrel treatment is not really noticeable here but the spice sure come through! The warming after the sip is not from alcohol but rather the pepper. Mild traces of vanilla. Soft carbonation with a fuller body ton of flavor for a 6% stout! really damn nice.

Fritz123 (1110) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Bottle from a trade with Cbok. Thanks! Pours a black thick oil with a small tan head in a snifter at home. Nice aroma of dark chocolate, vanilla, coffee, cinnamon, nutmeg, roasted malts, and roasted nuts. The taste was very well balanced dark chocolate and cocoa nibs, vanilla, caramel. spice (habanaeros), nuts, and coffee. Medium full body with moderate carb. Thick mouth. This is a very good stout.

HonusWagner (1598) - Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Notes of all the various random shit they threw in (though not a heavy bourbon or habanero presence) but the nutmeg is really, really big. Way too much nutmeg for me. A good idea with a slight failure of execution, IMO.

HonkeyBra (3516) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUN 30, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a medium brown head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of bourbon, coffee, cinnamon, chocolate, and heat from the habaneros. Flavor is sweet and spicy, with heat and dark chocolate taking a forefront. Nice bourbon barrel presence, some oak, cinnamon and nutmeg. Nice, full bodied, with prickly carbonation. Finishes with bourbon and heat. A world class beer.

DrSilverworm (6935) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 8, 2014
12oz bottle, thanks to umich03jm. Shared with alexsdad06 and tmoney99. Dark brown color. Thin ring of off-white head. Some loose dots of lace. Awesome vanilla, cookie dough, chocolate aroma. Good coffee / mocha. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Nice light peppery kick in the finish, very cool with the dark flavors. Moderate spicy taste, light to moderate sweet, moderate bitter. Very tasty interesting stuff.
