On tap at Hops & Pie. Black appearance with a small tan colored head. Pleasant aroma of light chili peppers, chocolate malt, vanilla, cinnamon, light oak and a touch of whiskey barrel. Similar flavor, rich, malty and moderately sweet with a lightly spiced bitterness. Medium to full body with soft carbonation, a smooth feel and a balanced finish. An excellent sipper overall.

Bottle received in trade. 2017 vintage. Pitch black pour with a mocha head. Intense coffee, chocolate, coconut, cinnamon & bourbon nose. Nice coffee & chocolate balance. Sweet, bitter, malty, roasty & nutty taste. Soft, round, velvety & tiny astringent mouth. Wow! Very impressive! Especially when comparing to the base. The barrel really did wonders.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2017 0.75l [email protected]: pours oily black, opaque with creamy dissipate brown head. Aroma-flavor: dark malts, with notes of coffee, cacao nibs, dark chocolate, licorice, molasses, vanillin, chilli, hint of cinnamon, bourbon. All ingrediends are perfectly blended, even cinnamon, almost too intense by regular version, is here pretty well balanced. Body is full, texture velvetly smooth, almost creamy oily, carbonation is low.

From notes. Enjoyed at a tasting Kyle finally made it to at Mickey’s on December 01. 750 mL bottle, batch 3. The pour is a lighter black with a thin ring of dark tan head and a couple spots of lace. The aroma is pretty good. There is a strong spiciness from the chilies and cinnamon, but the chocolate really mutes it. The barrel offers a further balance and a hint of vanilla. The light woodiness really adds a touch of sweetness that I like. The flavor is just as good. The complexity and depth really stand out. Chilies, cinnamon, chocolate, light vanilla, whiskey sweetness, and a light woodiness. This is just so complex and lovely. The mouth feel is light and not as viscous as I’d want. The carbonation is on point, and the aftertaste is lingeringly sweet whiskey and spicy chocolate. It’s really good. Damn.
