4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tasted on 1/12/11 from a 750mL bottle obtained in a trade. Pours absolutely oil black with just the thinnest brown lace head that slowly recedes to nothing at all. The nose is intense and complex with vanilla, smokey chili peppers, cinnamon, clove, coffee, tons of cocoa, prune, raisin, and of course very darkly roasted malt throughout. The flavor starts off with the chili and cinnamon spiciness with light smokiness, moving to the sweeter vanilla and dried fruit, tons of coffee and cocoa nib bitterness, with darkly roasted malts backing it all up. The body is massive and creamy with light carbonation and a super long finish that contains all of the flavors mentioned above at one point.

Thanks to dchmela for this one! Pours thicker than anything I’ve ever seen. Thick dark lingering Mahogany head. Lots of chocolate in nose with some spice and alcohol. Taste is same. This one changes with every sip. More spicy than suits my tastes, but clearly an excellent brew.

first batch opened on my new years beer bash. Pours pitch black with small tan head. Aroma is explosive with sweet chocolate and a earthy tone lending to coffee. Drinks with coffee and sweet chocolate upfront with that earthy note im assuming from the peppers. Vanilla is faintly noticeable on the back end and finishing again with semi sweet chocolate and day old coffee. very nice beer but I think the peppers are throwing me off on putting this in my top 5 stouts.
