Significantly better than any other spiced stout I've had (Abraxas, Mexican Cake, etc). Great balance, complex flavors that aren't overly aggressive. Well worth the effort.

In the family of non-barrel aged stouts, this may be the best. Better than Abraxas in my humble opinion. Less chiles and more cinnamon/vanilla.

Quite possibly the best beer on the planet. Extraordinarily complex.

EBF Pour. Thick and pitch black. The body sticks to the side of the sample cup. Aroma is pretty insane. The usual roastiness and chocolate of a high end example of the style is all there but I am also greeted with a zany mixture of heat and cinnamon spice. The flavor brings forth more of the same flavor intricacies. Thick chocolate and roasted coffee followed by a peppy chili heat. Not overly hot but the heat tickles the back of the tongue. The cinnamon is also very easy to detect and I admittedly enjoy this more than what the chills give off. Thick bodied. Lingering aftertaste. I find some noticeable bitterness. A lot going on in this revered brew. I was not in love with all of it but there is surely plenty to find appealing.
