Aroma: Loads of cinnamon! Followed with some sweet chocolate, and then you notice the peppers coming in a little, finishes with a wonderful blend of cinnamon, chocolate, vanilla bean, coffee, and the chiles. Just from the smell I know this beer is going to be great! The cinnamon is the star of the aroma for sure! 5

Appearance: Pours pitch black like motor oil and leaves a small espresso colored head that dissipates quickly, how every imperial stout should look! 5

Taste: Yes! So complex! Up front you get this wonderful cinnamon and slight pepper blend, then you get sweet chocolate, vanilla, and cinnamon combo, and finishes with all previous flavors mixed with a little more heat from the peppers, some coffee, and light hints of coconut. Finishes a little bitter, but the sweetness lingers and overcomes the bitterness quickly. I was a little unsure about the chiles, but damn they work well with this beer! The complexity of this beer so fantastic and all the flavors are so rich and indulging, this is definitely one of my new favorites and I need to get more! 5

Palate: This is the only part that I don't really like about this beer, with how sweet it is I would have love to seen a syrupy texture, but it is very thick and very dry. It makes you want to drink it rather fast instead of the beer letting you sit there and want to savor it, this beer truly needs to be savored while your drinking it and the mouthfeel contradicts that. That being said it finishes superbly for a dryer stout but, because I don't think the mouthfeel goes with this beer I give it. 4 since it still executes the dry stout feel so well.

O: This is a damn good beer, I would love to get my hands on a Double Barrel Huna to see what the barrel aging brings to this beer, overall this is an incredible stout and it is well worth the hassle getting one of these!
