One of my favorite beers I have ever had, if you take enough time to drink and enjoy this beer all of the flavors will eventually strike you at some point!

On tap at Voodoo Homestead in Homestead, PA. Got 3 pours of this gem of a beer.

Pours an oily dark black, with a very small head, basically nothing, and basically no lacing. Unspectacular looking, to be honest, but does it really matter in the end?

Smells awesome, chocolate, apple brandy, roasted malt, a little bit of vanilla, molasses, maple syrup, and pepper flesh.

This is an utterly insane and awesome beer in every way. The pepper heat is still noticeable, and hits you strong up front, tingling your lips for the duration of the drinking session. There's some bitter chocolate and vanilla bean in the middle, and a very sweet blast of maple syrup and molasses near the end. The beer is not too sweet, however, it's only at the end that you get the wonderful maple character. The apple brandy character is definitely there, but integrated well into the beer. It's not overwhelming, it's subtle. There is absolutely no boozy presence here, which is quite amazing. The year or so since it's been released has probably toned that aspect down.

This is fairly thick bodied, and syrupy, with a bit of an oily mouthfeel. There's a very low level of carbonation. The pepper flavor is the only thing that lingers sip after sip, and it's honestly quite pleasant.

This is definitely one of the best barrel aged stouts I've ever had. It approaches Apple Brandy Mexican Cake territory- it's damn close and I can't honestly decide which one I like better.
