Got this bad boy from a trade with Dimenhetfield, thanks bro. 2013 vintage split with BostonRyan, poured into snifter glasses, reviewed from tasting notes.

A: Pitch black body with a dark head of 1-2 fingers with awesome retention and lacing.

S: Complex smell, a lot going on. The chilli is strong on the nose. The cacao is also strong and quite bitter. There's a good amount of spice, cinnamon is present, and a little vanilla but not too much. No alcohol on the nose.

T: Again, very complex, but different from the nose. The cacao mellows out with the sweetness from the vanilla. Unlike other chilli beers, the chilli is present throughout and works really well. Cinnamon is not as present as it was in the nose, a little overwhelmed by the chilli. A lot of flavors going on, but a really solid malt backbone is a great foundation with roasty characters and the overall medley leaves little to no alcohol burn.

M: Just the epitome of the style. Creamy and full, rich and thick, a little dryness from the pepper but wet otherwise.

O: I loved this beer. Definitely worth the hype. A delicate balance that plays very well. It may not be for everyone, and I may have enjoyed this a bit more than my compadre, but it is really world class, and definitely the best non-barrel aged stout out there.
