Taste is tobacco dark fruit cocoa and a nice lingering chili finish. It’s good but trying to find the barrel here. dnstone (4062) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - FEB 11, 2017
Pours black in color with a white head. Boozy cinnamon, vanilla, chocolate aroma. Thick and sweet, chocolately with strong vanilla Bourbon booze character and a nice significant chili burn in the finish. Cinnamon is in there but get gets eclipsed a bit by the chilies.

Aroma is molasses, dark ripe fruit, and a tiny pepper. Punch of chilis, but not the spice, just the flavor. Tobacco, vanilla, red velvet cake, and booze. Lots of booze. Bottle. baraciisch (3532) - California, USA - JAN 3, 2017

12 oz. bottle. Black body with no head. Smells of alcohol and cinnamon. Sweet with a little chocolate. Tastes boozy. Cinnamon. Heavily sweet. A little bit of chocolate hidden by alcohol. Rough and tough to drink. This is too much.

12oz bottle to snifter. Lots of booze on the nose. Thinner bodied. All adjuncts are present, albeit subtly. Sweet finish but not over the top. bookman10 (1378) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - OCT 27, 2016
Pours a rather watery black (not as thick and oily as you’d expect), with minimal, almost no head. Aroma of vanilla, dark fruit, booze, bourbon, cherry, chocolate. Flavor is strongly vanilla, with some cocoa, just a slight touch of heat from the chiles, more than a little bourbon/booziness, plum, cherry, some licorice. Very smooth with a touch of the chile pepper heat in the finish. Quite tasty. hopdog (13374) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2016
Bottle. Poured a black color with a tan head. Chocolate, vanilla, chili peppers (not over bearing), lighter spices, and bourbon. Lighter hot spice in the finish with the alcohol overall hidden.
