Very rich Stout with mocha tones. Great body with very dark color and wonderful aroma. Oh and it pairs well with a great burger.

12 oz. bottle from Mark - thanks again, Mark! Pours an opaque near-black color, really deep, with a small tan head that settles into a ring, small island of film, and a few ropes of lace in the glass. Big cinnamon and spicy peppers and nutmeg in the aroma, along with brown sugar, coffee, chocolate, and graham cracker. The flavor doesnt quite have the same balance or depth, with coffee, habanero, dark chocolate, cinnamon, earth, dark fruits, brown sugar, and a hint of metal. Light-medium bodied, with a spicy, sweet, rich, and just barely tangy mouthfeel. Spicy finish and aftertaste. Just a wee bit too much heat on the palate without as much balance as the aroma. Nice, fun beer otherwise.

Aroma is spicy, spicy, spicy... definitely the habeneros, but also vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg - wow! There is a fair amount of bitterness, though who knows if its from hops or roasted malt. Color is pretty much black with a small tan head. Taste includes that generalized bitterness and not too much sweetness. Body is medium; texture is oily to creamy; carbonation average; finish is loooong and warm.

Draft. Pours thick black. The aroma is bold. Cinnamon and spices. The main taste cinnamon and sweet chocolate is light but good. Then the heat rushes in not over powering.

12oz bottle from Beer Bazaar in Hainesville. Big cinnamon/pepper presence with almost a chocolate mint component. Loved the BA imperial version which seemed to smooth the pepper out. This is solid with the pepper being a key player. 13.8

Dark black. Very thin and receding lacing. Starts off chocolate and cinnamon and then habernero sits on the palate. Not much heat, its just really well balanced. I love these sessionable mexican chocolate style beers. Thx arminjewell

Bottle. Black with a small tan head that leaves no lacing. Aroma is cocoa, coffee, cinnamon, winter spices, and pepper. Taste is cocoa, chocolate, coffee, winter spices, cinnamon, and pepper in the finish. Thinner for the style and a lingering mild heat.

The aroma is wonderful chocolate and spices and it pours a perfectly beautiful glass of brew with a sizable, long lasting creamy brown head. I would prefer it to have a thicker more creamy mouthfeel but that is my personal preference. The spices come through more as a scent to me but they do enhance the overall flavor. I get more of the light chocolate/coffee forward with lingering habanero bringing up the end.

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
