Had a small taste of this months ago, and couldn't wait to open one of my own! Poured into Jackie O's snifter and shared with the wife.
A- Pours thick and jet black. Looks syrupy when poured into the glass. Very dark khaki, brown head, recedes very quickly. So thick the beer leaves a film on the glass for a moment.
S- Very nice aroma. Get chocolate and vanilla mostly in the nose. Roasted malt notes throughout sprinkled with a little spice here and there.
T- Wonderful flavors throughout on this drink. Even better than I remember. Right out of the gate I get a bitter chocolate flavor mixed with cinnamon and chile spice. Chocolate flavor then blends nicely with sweet vanilla flavors. The sweetness takes over in the middle. Roasted malt flavors hold everything up nicely. Ends with sweet vanilla and still some chocolate flavors and again get some hints of the chile lingering.
M- Full body. Low carbonation. Thick, almost syrupy feel to it. A little dry too.
O- One of my favorite beers I've had. There was a lot of hype around this, and it definitely out did the hype for me. Could drink this all night long if I could. Now I can't wait for next year's release!!

Incredibly dark in color - no light getting through this one, small head - and light lacing around the glass. Bitter chocolate aroma, slight vanilla as well. Taste is unbelievable!! Bitter chocolate, some vanilla with hints of coffee and some cinnamon in the finish - but not overly boozy. Incredibly complex and unique - thanks to my beer bud for sharing this one with me!!
