bottle... really great looking beer, super dark black body with an equally dark tan head, good carbonation, just great coloring... on the aroma I get a big initial burst of the cinnamon, a bit of peper and a little chocolate, good but I’m not a big cinnamon fan so its not great for me... the best thing about the tasting experience is the mouthfeel, full and coating, thankfully the cinnamon fades on the taste, as do the peppers, get more nibs and chocolate flavors than anything... solid beer I’d have again

fraternie (877) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Crazy aromas of cinnamon and brown sugar. Tastes like a dark cinnamon muffin, gaining subtle cocoa notes and chile spice. Powdery mocha body, ultra-complex and innovative. Suave texture.
