All cylinders are firing, perfect stout pour, amazing entertaining nose, multitude of flavors (coffee, vanilla, cinnamon) working over your taste palate with a nice heat finish. Perfect!!

I didn't expect the dark fruit taste at first but really enjoyed how it melded with the cinnamon, vanilla and peppers. This is a GREAT beer

This was an all around amazing beer. Great nose and mouthfeel, booze, chocolate and cinnamon complimented by slight heat. All mix to a well balanced, heavy stout with intense flavor.

This pours with tremendous viscosity for not being barrel aged, its inky black with a dense brown foam.

The nose seems to be mostly chili peppers, habenero or Serrano perhaps, with a bit of cinnamon powder and a phenolic duct tape. (It may just be this bottle)

The flavor is predominantly cinnamon spice at first with an accompaniment of raw chili peppers. The peppers provide heat the rest of the way but are almost indistinguishable through the end. The mid palate to finish is chocolatey and malty. Delicious.

The feel is downright chewy and thick. Just fantastic.

As of 1/3/15 -
Had a vertical consisting of '12, '13 and '14 (Batch1.)

All were world class but there was a noticeable fall-off in the cinnamon / chilies as it ages - as expected. Conversely, the mouth feel improved. Cannot wait to try the 2014 Batch 2 and the 2015 offerings.
