3.93/5  rDev +11%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

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.
