First off, I love the pull tab wax combo. Pours dark as night with a reddish head. Aroma is decadent cinnamon candy, toffee, anise, and barrel. Taste is truly delicious. Graham cracker, cinnamon, turbinado sugar, sweet exotic booze, childhood candy essence. Really and truly delicious. Right up there with DB Hunahpu. Absolutely world class.

Bottle @ Perennial. Crazy cinnamon sugar, coconut, and marshmallow on the nose. Lots of dark chocolate, vanilla, fudge, and whiskey. Damn. The cinnamon really makes the flavor for me. Great spice balances out the sweet chocolate, vanilla, and coconut. A touch of marshmallow and somewhat moderate rye/whiskey. Awesome beer.

Sampled along the RBSG 2014 bus tour. Bottle at the brewery. Nose has a lot of booze in it, and the strong cinnamon from the base beer is still present. Taste is like a chocolate cinnamon bourbon ball. Slightly sweet and borders on being too thick and sweet, but ultimately dries out. I never seem to get the pepper character in the base beer and this version is the same way. Very good beer though.
