look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Hand bottle via neighbor who hooked it up literally at 10:30pm PST Thx Art S.

Pours pitch black and pretty viscous with a creamy tan head that has some large bubbles.

Amazing aroma - chocolate, spices, roast, smoke, and mild chili peppers burnt sugars.

Flavor is incredible and moves through several phases as it warms up. Starts with semi-sweet chocolate then roast and coffee, followed by some smoke, vanilla, then chili peppers, cinnamon, wood and bitter cocoa and hops on the finish. The complexity is pretty cerebral.

Medium full on the palate with a bitter cocoa chalkiness. Bitterness really sticks with you, and I feel like it's more from the cocoa than the hops.

Drinkability is semi-smooth at chilled level once it warms up its chalky , but I think this works very well as a sipper. Smell is amazing intense chilly mild vanilla. AMAZING BEER glad to try twice in one week.
