2013 Vintage split with my neighbor on my 32nd bday. Been wanting to open this for awhile.

Poured into snifter a motor oil black with a dark mocha colored head that had some decent legs given a year and a hslf in the bottle.

Aroma was mostly chocolate and roasted coffee, some sweet crream

Taste was dominated by bitersweet / dark chocolate. Amazing. Some coffee and vanilla but was a bit let down to not get any cinnamon or chilies guess I need to try more fresh

Mouthfeel was very thick and visocus , lower carb. Perfect for the style

Overall I was impressed but just slightly let down by the lack of complexity I was expecting. Need to try this more fresh to properly evaluate

I have been eager to try this beer for some time now. Pours with a deep dark black color. Aroma is complex with bits of cinnamon, vanilla and chocolate all coming through. Taste is amazing! It is very complete. The spice from the chilies is minor and gives a great little accent to the chocolate, vanilla sweet that takes center stage.

Finally excited to review one of my favorite beers. I've managed a handful of sample pours via bottle shares, looking forward to a full glass / bottle. This is a 2014, first batch, poured into a Hunahpu's glass.

A: Pours black with half a finger of a dense dark khaki head that reduces slowly and leaves a very thin collar.
S: Huge wafts of chocolate, cinnamon and vanilla. In the back ground I get a lot of roast and coffee.
T: Sweet chocolate up front with a pleasant lingering cinnamon after taste. There are layers of flavor going on here, roast somewhere in the middle, but for me it's all about the chocolate cinnamon holding it all together.
M: Thick, rich, and creamy.
O: As stated, I already knew going in that this is one of my favorites, and nothing has changed after enjoying more than a few sips.
