Bottle brought from Michigan. Not loving the cinnamon and nutmeg flavors. They almost taste artificial. I wouldnt mind that its maybe a little too spicy if it werent for the cinnamon weirdness. It almost has a soapy taste. I tasted a ton of new great beers on my trip to Michigan, but this was a disappointment.

On tap. Very interesting. Pours black. Aroma is chocolate and nutmeg with cinnamon. Taste is the same but with the habenero spiciness that lingers long and bitter

tmoreau (3848) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2016
On tap at Bigbys Pour House in Addison, IL., dispensed to a small snifter showing a black/brown hue, with a fingers width of frothy, brownish tan head foam, and wavy lacing. The nose was expressive notes of roastiness, sweet milk chocolate, a bit of coffee, and spices as cinnamon & nutmeg. Medium+ bodied, with fair carbonation, the taste continued the aroma notes, and combined a dry, roasted & earthy bitterness, with a peppery heat that enhanced the flavor, and lingered pleasantly in the throat. Enjoyably unique.

mmmbeer (1393) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 3, 2016
12 oz. bottle served in shaker (last one from MI)- poured a non transparent black color, no head, sits very still in the vessel. Aroma of nutmeg, hot peppers, and dark chocolate. Hits the mouth with a wide body, malt is awash with nutmeg and cinnamon but a roasted malt is detectable, middle has some vanilla and tobacco, finish is kind of one note- some heat, but nothing much else really. Decent, but it just lacks something.

Caramel, Spicey, If you love stouts this is among the Finest. The kick is what makes this abit different from many Stouts. The coffee taste makes this a go to. One of my favorite Stouts. This is a break away from the usual Stout kick and I highly recommend this, The habanero is a nice touch.
