Well, this beer lives up to the hype. It's unique, it's different, but most of all it's great.
Bottle was obtained from the brewery a week after the release. Poured into a tulip glass--the pour is motor-oil esque. Thick, viscous, a light brown surface--can't really call it a head. Brownish swirls.
This beer has a nose like no other. The first smell is black olives. Never what you would expect from a stout. As I kept smelling and as it warms, it smells more of coffee and chocolate and the olives fades.
Initial taste is very light and pleasant, with stout overtones but not as heavy as you would typically expect from a stout. As it warms, it provides a nice dark chocolate tang, with the finish very similar to--yes, a cigar.
Mouthfeel is very light and pleasant. This is a VERY drinkable beer and although you will most likely take your time drinking it, you will enjoy every minute of it.
This beer is well worth the cost and the hype. Top notch!!

4.53/5 rDev -0.4%

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
