The aroma is full of cocoa nibs, vanilla, cinnamon and coffee. The color is pitch black. The taste is full of cocoa nibs, vanilla, cinnamon, coffee and chilies. The finish is long and strong because of the habanero. My tongue is burning. Nice beer!

Bottle via "little" Matt, shared with Lubiere. Dark brown with a dark mocha creamy head. Roasted chocolate malt, cinnamon, lactose, light vanilla, some vegetable and light heat peppers (which build towards a nicely balanced heat finish), agave, some oak, full body and mild carbonation, smooth and nicely balanced throughout, enjoyable and delicious.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
650ml bottle served in a snifter. Pours thick and black with a dark tan head with good head retention for a IS of this strength. Aroma is woody, dirty (in a good way) with a promise of the sweetness to come. Taste is powerful chocolate (both milk and dark), woody and an almost tequila-like quality that gives the dirty taste promised by the aroma. Chilli is really pronounced here - I have had a few IS that have promised chili heat that have not even registered on the (scoville) scale. Heat is present in the aftertaste really quite strongly and as the mouthfeel is so luxuriously viscous the sweet residue on your lips begins to glow after a while. Cannot fault this beer really. I would imagine the bourbon/double barrel would be close to my perfect beer.
