(Bottle) Pours dark brown to black. The aroma holds chocolate, glue, vanilla/cinnamon bun, dark caramel, tobacco, pepper, earth, dark fruits and some hops. The flavour is is light to medium sweet, near medium bitter and tiny acidic with notes of Christmas spices, chilly pepper, cocoa, roast, some hops and a touch of dark fruits. The mouthfeel round and numbing with a light to medium carbonation. Peppery finish. Medium bodied.

tkrjukoff (4101) - SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2012
Bomber @ CCB Day. Pours oily pitch black with a shortlived borwnish head. Aroma is dry hoppy grassy soapy nicely hoppy. Flavor is just as good as the other one but yet more balanced and the blend of vanilla cocoa and cinnamon is better. So good chili bite at the finish not taking over the beer. Great job done by the brewers.

22oz bottle, dark brown pour without much head. Aroma of vanilla and spice. Same with the taste but you have to search a bit to find the vanilla. I’ve had both batches, the blue wax is by far superior. Can’t wait to grab a bottle of this again.

soulpolisher (33) - Missouri, USA - JUN 24, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2012 Let this one warm up a bit out of the fridge. Pours black with a tan head that disappeared when I looked away. Aroma is great. Roasted cocoa but the spice was lingering at the end in the back of my sinus cavities. Taste is sweet malty chocolate. The heat comes on in the finish. Nice full oily mouthfeel. Overall a very good spicy beer.

BOLTZ7555 (2823) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 23, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2012 Bottle via funkyaudio! Dark mahogany, just missing ebony, pour with a dense latte head. Loads of cocoa, fudge, brownie batter, cinnamon, and chili pepper. Decent amount of capsiason and lactos...definitely get some heat and spice. Not the darkest or most aromatic but well rounded and interesting.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Pours deep brown with notes of dusted cocoa and dark chocolate. A nice smooth mouthfeel that shows the dense sweet malts and the chocolate syrup notes with a spiced chocolate finish. Does not drink hot or like its higher ABV.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Pipeworks end of days. Batch 2. Thanks fellas... Cola deep brown pour, slightly lighter towards the edges. Little head... Aroma of vanilla, fudge and a moderate spice chili pepper quality... Flavors are more of the same with fudgey chocolate, spice, and vanilla to pair alongside a medium bodied apparently bigger than the previous. Nice pepper sensation without the heat and i could do for either. Semi-sweet. Nice. 8/3/8/4/15
