Shared on 14 April among a couple of friends; 750mL bottle.
Poured up absolutely black and thick with a dark brown head. Looked simply *stunning* in my chalice leaving a brown, oily film on the sides of the glass as I gently swirled it around.
Smell was whiskey, vanilla, chocolate, chile peppers, and loads of other things I couldn't readily identify; quite a lot going on!
Taste was immensely chocolate with spent coffee grounds, spicy chile peppers, chocolate covered cherries (wasn't expecting this), finishing with a lovely warming sensation attributable to both the easily detectable cinnamon and chile peppers. Very complex and absolutely incredible!
Mouthfeel was very heavy, but silky smooth leaving a nearly oily coating in the mouth.
I found this to be exceptionally well crafted, a real privilege to enjoy, and the first 'elusive' beer to actually live up to all the hype! Very, very well done!
