Bottle @ home. Black in color with a khaki head. There’s a nice bit of roasty coffee and plenty of dark chocolate. A touch of nuts and some pepper. Good sweetness of hazelnut and a touch of toffee. Decent amount of coffee, though not as much as is present on the aroma. Mouthfeel is a little on the thin side but otherwise not too shabby.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from my brother from a Hilton Head trip. Pours dark brownish black with minimal khaki head. Nose is roasty dark malt, huge coffee, hot peppers of the chili and jalapeno variety. Tastes roasty choc malty, with notes of coffee and chili pepper in the finish. I’m pretty sure no hot peppers were used in this, but it damned well tasted like it , and it tasted good, stubby.
