This is a review of the one released December 2011. My sister and brother-in-law brought it with them from Tampa.
Appearance: black and syrupy, low head formation, but dark tan/brown foam (never seen head this dark!)
Aroma: big notes of molasses, dark chocolate, soy sauce, rum, vanilla, and pipe tobacco
Flavor: full malty sweetness (almost cloying), but the burnt sugar, coffee, smokiness, rich roast, and cocoa notes do balance it out a little bit; laced with vanilla, tobacco, and cinnamon (in the background); finishes sweet with long-lingering caramel, roast, and molasses
Mouthfeel: full (almost syrupy) body, mild carbonation, some alcohol warmth, but most of the warming comes from the chili spice that slowly builds
Other comments: Woah. It is almost shocking how dark and thick this beer is when it emerges from the mouth of the bottle. I actually did a double-take. I have never seen a beer this dark. Drinks like a meal. I'm glad I tried it, but I probably wouldn't buy it again.
Serving type: bottle
