Thanks to pushkinwow for this - 2013 edition

Appearance - Dark brown colour with an average size frothy head. I can't make out the amount of carbonation showing and there is some decent lacing. The head lasted for around 2-3 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, chocolate, grains, coffee, chilies, vanilla, booze

Taste & Mouth - There is a below average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, chocolate, and coffee. There is also some vanilla, dark fruit, chicory, and chilies.

Overall - I'm not a fan of peppers/chilies in my beer normally, but they work so well with this beer. One of the better beers I have ever had for sure, and something that is well worth seeking out. A big bold flavourful beer that somehow remains quite drinkable and balanced.
