4/5 rDev -11.9%
S - Spicy with a strong pepper presence up front. There is also some bitter dark chocolate
T - Sweet apple brandy, vanilla, chocolate and slight pepper spice that lingers in the finish. The pepper is strong but lingers slightly in the finish as well as some oak and chocolate.
M - Medium body with some slight syrupiness from the apple brandy. There is also spice that lingers on the tongue in the finish
O - A good stout with loads of pepper and spice that is balanced against sweet apple brandy and chocolate

Served on-tap at Perch Pub during the Voodoo/Perennial event during Philly Beer Week.
A - Pours ink black with a nice one finger tall tan head, quickly dissipating down to a light film, leaving small streaks of lace on the sides of the glass.
S - Smells of fresh ground cinnamon, dried pepper skins, chocolate, vanilla, day old coffee, woody oak, dash of hops, apple jack and plenty of dark roasted malts. It smells spot on for the description, maybe a touch to cinnamon forward but thats nit picking.
T - Starts off with the chocolatey sweetness quickly being joined by the warming peppers, coffee, oak, apples and the ever present dark roasted malt. Finish is sweet with some peppery spice and light booze, lingering long after the finish.
M - Medium-Heavy body with moderate to low carbonation. Feel is best described as sweet heat. The booze grows as it warms up, getting a touch out of control as it fully warms.
O - A bit more refined than the original version but overall they are about the same in the grand scheme of things. I would definitely drink it again but I wouldn't go overboard trading for it.
