Thanks to kbutler1 for breaking this bad boy out!
Poured into a snifter. This one is pitch black with a cinnamon looking head. Retention is lacking and so is lacing, but the pitch black beer with a reddish brown cap makes my day.
The nose is intense. I wasn't expecting the peppers to come out this much! I love spicey things and the slight chile pepper spice note in this takes this to a whole new level. Dark cocoa nibs, cinnamon and roasted malts, vanilla and cream and of course peppers. Super intense and I almost can't get past the nose.
Thank god I got past the nose, though, because this tastes amazing. The peppers don't come out as much in the taste, however, which is kind of a bummer (to me at least) but it's still great. Dark cocoa nibs, dark roasted malts, a slight heat from the peppers and a nice earthyness. Great tasting.
Mouthfeel is heavy in body, thick and sticky. Nice carbonation. Smooth feel. Drinkability is great.
Overall, not exactly a stout I will get to drink often, but probably one of my favorites of all time. The uniqueness is just unmatched by anything I've had in a long time. Thanks Kevin!
