4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Amazing vanilla and cinammon notes. Smells like a fresh baked cookie. Head is light but color is nice dark black. Taste is like the smell. Great creaminess. Nice vanilla and cinnamon and nutmeg. Light on the palate. Easy finish. A great beer especially for a spice beer. Also a pepper spice in the finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Bigby’s Pour House in Addison, IL., dispensed to a small snifter showing a black/brown hue, with a finger’s width of frothy, brownish tan head foam, and wavy lacing. The nose was expressive notes of roastiness, sweet milk chocolate, a bit of coffee, and spices as cinnamon & nutmeg. Medium+ bodied, with fair carbonation, the taste continued the aroma notes, and combined a dry, roasted & earthy bitterness, with a peppery heat that enhanced the flavor, and lingered pleasantly in the throat. Enjoyably unique.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle served in shaker (last one from MI)- poured a non transparent black color, no head, sits very still in the vessel. Aroma of nutmeg, hot peppers, and dark chocolate. Hits the mouth with a wide body, malt is awash with nutmeg and cinnamon but a roasted malt is detectable, middle has some vanilla and tobacco, finish is kind of one note- some heat, but nothing much else really. Decent, but it just lacks something.

Wow. So very thick and heavy residual sugar that sticks to the tongue and cheeks. Cocoa and and some of the jalapeno ending. Cinnamon scent and cocoa. A bit of vanilla but it’s got a tobacco scent too. Thick, Just thick and black. Bottle

Caramel, Spicey, If you love stouts this is among the Finest. The kick is what makes this abit different from many Stouts. The coffee taste makes this a go to. One of my favorite Stouts. This is a break away from the usual Stout kick and I highly recommend this, The habanero is a nice touch.
