2012 vintage, courtesy of Axic10 in the Secret Bunny BIF, thanks Alex! (reviewed from notes taken 4/10/2012)

A- pours a deep black with no light penetration. There is a mocha-colored, one-half finger head that rests atop this dark beast. Very little lacing is present.

S- Coffee, dark chocolate, chilis, vanilla, roasted malt, dried dark fruits come through in the background.

T- like a party! Vanilla presents itself immediately and is followed by cocoa. Dark fruit and molasses/brown sugar enter in shortly thereafter. Coffee makes a cameo somewhere in the mix. Finally, chili arrives casually late on the finish. At no point are any of the flavors unaccompanied; each just stands out at a different point.

M- Thick with enough carbonation to break it up just a bit. A coating is left with each sip.

O- I absolutely loved this beer. I would really like to try one of the barrel-aged variants. The complexity is unbelievable. I am glad that I drank this fresh so I have an experience to compare the BA version to if I ever get to try it.

2014 vintage. 22-oz bottle served to snifter, shared. Have had the pleasure to sample 2010 aged, 2013 fresh, 2014 fresh. Time for a review of a larger pour.

A: very dark appearance, with zero light escaping from the body. there is a red tinge at the edges. for the alcohol, more head than I expected though this dissipates quickly. lots of cling on the side of the glass.

S: wave upon wave, in order, of milk chocolate, vanilla, then an herbal chile. I don't get much cinnamon when this one's fresh - understandably the chile overpowers

T: less intricate than the nose. the chile comes across most distinctly, but it's the taste of a well-charred green ancho instead of a tongue-scorching red. there is no "heat." dark roasted malts and vanilla as well. there's so much going on that I didn't notice much hop bite.

M: thick, viscous. the quality of the mouthfeel explains why I took plenty of time (gladly) to finish my half of the bottle.

huna > bomb > abraxas . . . actually looking forward to aging this one a little
