Thanks to the members of El Catador Club for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.
Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, vanilla, cookie dough, spice, rum, apple brandy, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, vanilla, chile, and apple brandy flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast and wood bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and thick mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty but the aromas on this one are much better in my opinion.

Wow! This pours out jet black with a beautiful oily look. The smell is a ton of Apple cinnamon on the nose. The taste has plenty of cinnamon and barrel age spice and sweetness. The mouthfeel is thick, it lingers perfectly and hangs with insane amounts of flavor. Overall it's sweet and spicy but incredibly balanced. Love this beer! Get it and drink it!

Huge thanks to DocJ007 for sharing this one with us tonight. Happy birthday buddy!!
A - Pours jet black with a small film of tan head, quickly dissipating down to nothing at all, leaving no lace at all on the glass. Pretty much dead flat almost instantly.
S - Smells of milk chocolate, chili spices, vanilla beans, cinnamon, oak, spicy rum and fruity brandy warmth. Everything that should be present is there and shining brightly.
T - Starts off with a mix of cinnamon and chili spices quickly being joined by the milk chocolate, vanilla and toffee sweetness. The spicy rum and fruity brandy match perfectly with the base flavors. Finish is spicy sweet with some mild booze burn, lingering long after the finish.
M - Heavy body with moderate to low carbonation. Slick, spicy feel with a bit of heat at the end of each sip. Just needs more carbonation and it would be amazing.
O - This is a pretty incredible beer. The two barrels blend very well together and complement the base flavors amazingly well. I would still take the Apple Brandy version over this one but it is closer than any of the other variants I have had to date.

On draft at Rustico in Arlington. I very excite! The beer appears pitch black with a thin, oily beige cap. The aroma brings a grandiose helping of cinnamon, roast, brandy. What a flavor! Ample cinnamon at first followed by a perfect compliment of chilis. Silly smooth brandy notes with a delicate sweetness from the rum barrels. A lovely concoction. Wonderfully smooth on the palate. World class.
