This beer is enough of a reason for me to pick up and move to Florida (you know, asides the beaches, beautiful weather, cheaper housing, and Disney).
Appearance - I could look at this beer all day. Actually thats a lie, because I would drink the shit out of it. Maybe if I had a photograph...Anyway, fantastic. Black as any good stout should be with a beautiful brown, yes brown, not mocha or off white, just full on brown head. Awesome. Unfortunately for someone like me who is totally digging this head it doesn't really want to hang out to long, oh well, nothing lasts forever. This liquid resembles oil closer than a stout.
Smell - A myriad of unusual aromas attack your nose with this one. Most people always review stouts the same way: raisins, coffee, caramel, choco...blah, blah, blah. We've read them a hundred times. This bad boy hits you with spice, vanilla, and earthiness, okay, yes, there are some elements of chocolate, and some hardcore roasted malts, but this beer will definitely hit your nose with something fantastic that is uncommon in most stouts, and you will love it.
Taste - The real winner in this whole review. In the front you have some heavy dark bakers chocolate combined with roasted malts, then some vanilla smoothness in the middle, and in the finish you get some faint hotness from the chilies and the cinnamon. It is out of this world. Let it warm up before drinking it, I feel like you would lose out on a lot of wonderful flavors.
Mouthfeel - Very thick, amongst the thickest I've had. For me I really enjoy a dark, hearty, rich, thick stout. I totally get that not everyone is in to that, but if your looking for a stout that you could drink with a spoon this is your beer.
Overall - Well, I clearly really enjoyed this beer. I have had many stouts from Cigar City and everyone of them have been incredible. This one however is the reigning champ of their stout line. Wonderful and delicious.

Opened on Christmas and split between 4 people
A - Dark as night with small mocha foam head
S - Chocolate, oak, vanilla, carmel and on the back end comes those chili's, very pleasant on the nose
T - Extremely balanced between the chili, vanilla, chocolate, cinnamon, and vanilla. This is much more balanced than I found Abraxas to be as that was a cinnamon bomb. The finish was where the spice came from.
M - Very thick full bodied mouthfeel with a creamy finish
O - This is my second favorite chili stout as of now. Just behind bomb! and ahead of Abraxas
