Bottle @ Yespr. Pours near black with a light brown medium head. Aroma is heavy coconut, cocoa-nibs, chocolate, heavy roasted malts, chili, cinnamon. Taste is heavy sweet and moderate bitter. Body is medium, texture is thick and viscous, carbonation is soft. Finishes dry, roasted, boozy, with mild chili-burn. I really like this stuff, but the amount of coconut is almost of the charts.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAR 20, 2014
750ml, copper waxed bottle, first edition. just couldn’t wait any longer to crack this one. pours a deep, dense, silky black capped by a smooth, rusty, beige head that leaves sticky sheets of lace. truly a beautiful beer in the glass. aroma is simply stunning with huge notes of cinnamon, cinnamon rolls, Mexican coffee, mole cocoa, and dark chocolate backed by subtle, smoky peppers, vanilla beans, dry oak, and hints of whiskey. flavor is just incredible as well with massive dark chocolate, malted vanilla, cinnamon candies, coffee beans, and baked cinnamon cake with rich oak, toasted coconut, whiskey, and mild pepper heat. palate is rich, full bodied, and perfectly carbonated with a beautiful finish of whiskey, cinnamon, and chocolate. overall, this truly is a remarkable effort and falls just a sliver short of perfection. well done.

joet (2055) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - MAR 11, 2014
A big round meniscus, black color and quickly dissipating tan foam. Very intense coconut and tropical aromas with Mexican mole behind it, slitghly nutty. Chilies apparent as piquancy once it hits the tongue. A substantial, thick body despite the size and age. Wisps of vanilla. This was tasted in a lineup of many top tier beers and was a clear standout. Thanks very much Ed Hops! Fantastic work, Corey King. Tremendous.

brystmar (1112) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Massive cinnamon aroma erupts from the glass. Transcendent, overwhelming pleasure from smelling this. Yeah.

Taste delivers a beautiful blend of chocolate, cinnamon, peppers, bourbon, vanilla. Average body, could def use more. Regardless, this is tremendously better than the base, which I actually don't like at all. Need my own bottle.

Theis (12758) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2014
Bottle at Yespr’s - Thanks. Pitch black - no head. High coconut - bounty chocolate bar, burned malts, bourbon, vanilla, alcoholic, fruity, licorice, light sharp chili bites, high malty, chocolate, cocoa. Far too much coconut.

hopdog (8521) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 21, 2014
BBT3 tasting. Poured a black color with an off white head. Did not know what to expect going into this one as chilies and cinnamon are kind of a turn off for me. Cinnamon was definitely there, but if cinnamon were to be done in a beer, this is the way to do it. Chilies there too, but not an overpowering chili. Whiskey, woody, chocolate, vanilla, and caramel. This one was just done right all the way around.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2014
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a dark brown head. The aroma has notes of coconut, roasted malt, alcohol, soy sauce, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, alcohol, cinnamon, dark chocolate, chili, and brettanomyces, leading to a dry finish, where the chili burns a bit.
