4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
A-- Pours like Hunahpu does. Thick, sludgy, oily, and black. Just huge. Beautiful reverse cascading head. Went from black leather to a dark mocha colored head. Two finger head that settled to a thick film. Just gorgeous looking. Big oily residue of ABV legs and sediment. Good spotty lacing.
S-- Yikes. Chocolate fudge, marshmallow, cinnamon,an nutmeg. Barrel notes were soft but did get vanilla, oak, and carmel. Really thought the base beer somewhat overshadowed the barrel. Not complaining though.
T-- Thick and rich. Massive array of flavors. Vanilla, chocolate fudge, marshmallow, cinnamon, oak, vanilla and carmel. Like drinking a thick milkshake.
M-- Thick and oily. Big but not overly big or sweet at all. Quite smooth really and still chewable at the same time. Low carbonation. What was really memorable was the chillies really made an impact in this. As in the heat in the mid an back palate. Had heartburn the next day from it. Nice touch.
O-- Outstanding beer in every respect. Would have liked more of the barrel but in this beer it is more about the spices and what it adds. Yeah, I am a Stranahan homer and like the barrel treatments from them. Was quite fun to drink and would love to try again.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 75cl, at TFODRBSG 2012. A black one, topped by a finger-thick dark tan head. Some lacings. Oily pour. Lots of dark chocolate and wonderful coffee on the nose. Roasted malts, alcohol, a touch of prunes and raisins, as well as a pleasant but intense boozyness. A bit heavy on the booze, itís really warming on the palate, full-bodied, oily and smooth. Quite hop bitter, both initially and in the end. The flavor has loads of dark chocolate, mocha, some boozyness resembling chili, and a touch of dried fruits. Really, really lasting finish with dark chocolate, roasted notes and some coffee. And bitterness. Superb and wonderful. 120818

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
pours dark black with a paperthin dark brown head. Aroma of whiskey, in your face overpowering the other components of the beer. Taste follows, some chocolate, vanilla and oak. no peppers. The whiskey is too forward in this. still not bad just not my favorite of the variants.
