Poured from bottle to teku. Dark hue with fizzy brown head that dissipated to a ring. Aroma is malt, chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon, pepper spice. Mouthfeel is nice with medium body and fizzy carbonation. Taste is sweet initially with a nice astringent following and a spicy ethanol finish. Overall this is amazing!

Smells like a chocolate bar. The spicy kick masks the alcohol flavor. Smooth drinking delicious brown foam.

Pours an opaque motor oil black with bubbly brown head that lasts but leaves little lace. Aroma is big on the chocolate and booze with hints of molasses, vanilla, and spice. Taste is well balanced, toasty dark chocolate, booze, hint of spice, oak, hint of cinnamon, nice. Thick and viscous, burns on the way down, good carbonation. Wow, very nice, no hunahpu, but still awesome.

bomber from trade with stevbeergeek. WHOA! perfect 5 on app. almost perfect on aroma, and palate. Aroma of cinnamon immediately, plus chocolate, roast, malts and other good things. Taste was wow! not sure the cinnamon is needed in the taste but as a stout without tricks it is outstanding!! you taste the pepper but not distracting, just some heat. WOW!! Thanks for the trade Steven; I greatly enjoyed this one. would love the stout version without the tricks - almost perfection.

(bottle - 22 oz) Dark black pour with a thick tan head. Aroma is a big and really nice mixture of chocolate, dark chocolate, cinnamon and peppery spice. Flavor is an interesting mix of dark chocolate, sugary sweetness, habanero spice and spicy cinnamon. Nine times out of ten, this may not work, but it worked extremely well. Almost had a spicy hot fudge taste to it. Big fan.

Bottle thanks to Motherbrother. Pours pitch black with reddish edge. A small, short lasting brown head. Aroma has HUGE, dark chocolate, cinnamon, wood, lots of vanilla. Taste is fairly dry, tho the chocolate is very creamy. Slight leather, strong heat in the end. Chili fruit, espresso.
Fairly thin body (don’t get me wrong), average to medium high carb. Really nice and hot!
