[6675-20140816] Bottle. Mild roasted grains aroma. Black body with a quick foamy light tan head. Chocolate roasted dust flavour is quickly overpowered by spicy hot peppers. Not a fan. (6/3/5/3/11) 2.8

2014-08-16. Black body with a small tan head. 3++ Aroma of dark malt, light roast accents. Flavour is dry, dusty roast cocoa accents over dark malt with some chilis that grow significantly more prominent as you go. Smooth average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Just enough spicey heat to put me off personally but a decent beer nonetheless. Bottle at Campground Brewdown

Served on-tap at Perch Pub during the Voodoo/Perennial event during Philly Beer Week.

A - Pours ink black with a nice one finger tall tan head, quickly dissipating down to a light film, leaving small streaks of lace on the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of fresh ground cinnamon, dried pepper skins, chocolate, vanilla, day old coffee, woody oak, dash of hops, apple jack and plenty of dark roasted malts. It smells spot on for the description, maybe a touch to cinnamon forward but thats nit picking.

T - Starts off with the chocolatey sweetness quickly being joined by the warming peppers, coffee, oak, apples and the ever present dark roasted malt. Finish is sweet with some peppery spice and light booze, lingering long after the finish.

M - Medium-Heavy body with moderate to low carbonation. Feel is best described as sweet heat. The booze grows as it warms up, getting a touch out of control as it fully warms.

O - A bit more refined than the original version but overall they are about the same in the grand scheme of things. I would definitely drink it again but I wouldnít go overboard trading for it.

Woodshed 3.0! Big thanks to dak for saving this whole series and sharing with us. Awesome!! Bottle #071 pours with a dark mahogany colored body and minimal head. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, dark roasted coffee, some vanilla and some marshmallow and a mild chili pepper note. The taste starts with dark roasted malts, smooth molasses, chocolate and smooth brandy like booze. It then flows into a nice chili pepper heat note riding with the chocolate and a faint cinnamon spice sensation into the finish. This has pleasing richness and balance.

Dark brown pour, brown head. Wow. This is rich and incredibly complex. The apple brandy dies very well with the spices and chocolatey stout. Very tasty!

Bottle shared @ Woodshed 3.0! Dak, once again! Really interesting beer with a lot of complexity and warmth. Brownie batter, spicy cinnamon, sweet vanilla, and subtle capsaicin heat from the ghost peppers. Most refined ghost pepper beer Iíve had by far. A little oak. A hint of brandy. A touch of Granny Smith. It all works. Tasty.

On tap at perch with Liam, Eric and Craig. Pours black with off white head. Notes are cinnamon stick, pepper, cookies, chocolate and barrel richness. Medium body, a little sticky. Lasting finish....hell yeah. Warming in chest but easy for ghost pepper.
