Reviewed from notes from 7/24/14

A- Pours incredibly thick and viscous, midnight black, with a medium sized dark mocha head that slowly recedes leaving some lacing. Some nice alcohol legs appear when swirled.

S- The aromas don't explode from the glass, but when explored it is full of complex subtleties. Dry cocoa and bitter dark chocolate are followed by sweet vanilla. The chilies' sweetness and slight spiciness meshes amazingly well with the apple brandy. The spiced rum and cinnamon blend fantastically as well. Some fudgy chocolate and booze round it out.

T- The flavor follows the nose incredibly closely. Bitter chocolate, roast and smooth vanilla meets a counter-point of cinnamon and chilies. The rum and apple brandy barrels impart such wonderful complexities! As it warms the fudgy chocolate really comes out to counter-balance the chili heat. As in the nose the rum and cinnamon play off each other as do the chilies and apple brandy. This is extraordinarily complex and at the same time perfectly balanced!

M- Thick and viscous, drying, good carbonation, and only slightly boozy.

O- This beer just comes together so perfectly with flavors that compliment and play off each other so well! It's delicious, complex, and greater than the sum of it's parts!

Bottled shared by Jacob - thanks.

A: Pours an oily black with a 1/2" dark mocha head which fades slowly to the rim leaving spots of lace.

N: Dark cocoa, earthy, roast, rum and and a hint of sweet brandy.

T: Apple brandy and rum integrates very well, chilies and cocoa are also well balanced. The cinnamon is a little strong - minor issue and not a flaw.

N: Full body and light carbonation. Smooth , rich and luscious. Dark chocolate cake with peppery spice drizzled with rum and apple brandy icing.

O: Amazing. Just fantastic.
