Easily my current favorite beer. Extremely dark beer with a nice reddish-brown head to it. You can smell the chocolate over all else with a bit of a curious tang to it- undoubtedly the peppers. Overwhelming dark chocolate flavor with a hint of pepper spice, but no heat at all. 10% ABV is very well hidden by the strong complex flavors of this beer. Notes of cinnamon and coffee swirl throughout the cocoa. I wish I could have this for dessert every single night!

In the arts based on dialogue and lyricism, good art is characterized by richness and subtlety of expression. Not sure that observation carries over to the culinary arts. (My favorite beers are the fruit bombs that go by the name of IPAs at Cellarmaker.) But this beer is an argument that it does, even with adjuncts like chili ("Please sir, I want some more.") and cinnamon.
