Fantastic stuff. So good as to inspire my first review. Frankly, the hint of heat, and the overall richness drive this to a level that make it "clear the shelf at any price" good.

Great, everything came together very nicely in this one!

Floydster (33) - Oceanside, California, USA - OCT 19, 2016
The chocolate is dominant while the cherry and chipotle are subtle, there is mild heat and a good amount of oak. You can also pick up a bit of roasted malt from the previously used barrel which I found impressive
