Bottle 256/432 of the 2013 batch.

A: Pours pitch black with a tall, dense and very dark brown head. Head fades slowly with top notch retention. Moderate but thick slices of lacing.

S: Hmph, spicy. Not exactly sure what it is. Some kind of hot pepper and cinnamon? Maybe even ginger (or is it cardamom?). Decent amount of bittersweet chocolate and roasted malt character.

T: Heavy on the spices up front. Cinnamon again with a good amount of heat. Maybe chili pepper or perhaps even curry? Again with the ginger/cardamom following. Fairly heavy charry roasted malt with lots of chocolate throughout. Lingering cinnamon and chocolate in the aftertaste. Overall it sorta reminds me of a mexican hot chocolate.

M: Heavy, thick and viscous. Smooth too.

O: Interesting heavily spiced stout. It reminds me sorta of Indra Kunindra or Bombay Berserker. Indian-centric spices I would say. Pretty strong but not too overpowering. Very heavy and potent brew with strong flavors. Surprisingly smooth bodied with no real booziness though. (1,030 characters)

22 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black, but not inky. Big khaki head.

Smell - Very spicy. Cinnamon. Anise. Someone told me cardamom, but I don't get it. A little bit chocolatey.

Taste - Falls off here. More chocolate, but it's still very spicy. A little nutty. Bitter in the finish.

Mouthfeel - High carbonation. Too bitter.

Overall - I'd like more stout. Too heavily spiced. (407 characters)

Wow. Spice bomb with a little chocolate. Not much noticeable roasted malt or coffee flavor here. Tons of ginger and cinnamon. Very.,very sweet. Tons of sugar. If it were toned down a bit, it would be excellent. The stout really gets drowned out. Could use a little more heat from the peppers too. It is what I would describe as an unbalanced Xocaveza. It would be a good holiday beer. (386 characters)
