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. rlgk (18844) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2017

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. hackobock (4095) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2017

Crazy good. Pours a thick dark black brown color with reddish brown head. Notes of heavy vanilla, faint smoke, cinnamon, coconut, and dust. Perfect amount of chili.
