4.6/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Been wanting to try this one for a while. Got one as a wedding present for a friend and have been lucky enough to obtain a second bottle, so here we go.

Pours a pitch black with a motor oil complexion. Very very slight brown head. Looks the part of a big IS.

Smell is vanilla sweetness upfront, followed the smell of sweet malt and some cinnamon. The faintest hint of chili is also evident. A great, complex smell.

Taste is sweet upfront with immediate notes of cinnamon as well. Lots of vanilla comes forward midway through and chilis come on strong at the end of each drink. Certainly a spicy element here, but far from overwhelming. A great combination and blending of flavors.

Mouthfeel is about right for the style. Very full and smooth, but not quite to the point of being sticky like, say, Dark Lord.

Overall this is one hell of a beer, and one that demonstrates the ability to integrate some marginally out of the box flavors without making them feel gimmicky. No one note dominates and everything comes together fantastically. There are few things better in the beer world than when you find a beer that is both unique and rewarding, and this fits the bill.
