Pours thick like motor oil and pitch black. Aroma of chocolate, cinnamon, bourbon, vanilla, and rye spice. Taste is sooooo good! Starts spicy, sweet, and cinnamon with chocolate, vanilla, slight EtOH. Mouthfeel is super thick and tasty. Overall one of the best! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

#1400! Jet black, light on head. Nose of very heavy cinnamon, vanilla, bourbon barrel, rich chocolate, base beer is apparent and awesome. Taste of rich vanilla, heavy heavy cinnamon, bourbon barrel, toasty, super complex, dry from the cinnamon, dry spicy finish, the chiles become apparent only on the finish.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2015 Bottle from a trade with Matt. Pours black with a dark brown lacing. Aroma of CINNAAAMOON, cinnamon rolls, dark ripe fruits, some spice (from the chili i guess), cocoa powder, brown sugar, cookie dough, some barrel character, vanilla and some weak coconut as it warms - but the main thing is really cinnamon rolls all over the place. This beer gotta be kidding me. The taste is just freakingly slick chocolate, raw cocoa, vanilla, chili, cinnamon rolls, dark fruits, nougat and a lot of wooden whiskey barrel character. I think the barrel and the chili saves this beer from being cloying. The end of this beer is just crazy good just covering your mouth with melted chocolate haha! Really a beer that sticks out for me!

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2015 Bottle split 5 ways, thanks guys for sharing! Pitch black pour with a small dense tan head that fades away and leaves small lacings on top. Nose is full of cinnamon, milk chocolate, coconut, vanilla and a tiny hint of the chillies. Taste is really intense, everything melts together in a perfect way. Vanilla, spices, cacao powder, whiskey and then with a lingering hot finish. Very good indeed!

Bottle @ ZZT X shared by kermis. Opaque pitch black color, medium sized medium brown head. Aroma is malts, sweetish, spices, something weird, coconut. Taste malts, spices, coconut, cinnamon, sweet with a bitter touch. Medium body and carbonation. Well, I don’t like it. Way way too much sweetness and sweetish spices. Don’t like it.
