Very very good! Pours with no foam. Super dark chocolate brown. Smells of vanilla and a little coffee. The flavor is excellent. Almost everything is in balance: a little too much pepper, but cinnamon, vanilla, cacao just right. Gets even better as it warms. There's mild bourbon-like flavor. Vanilla? Then, there's a strong but not overwhelming pepper burn on the end.
Overall, a great beer. I want to drink this head to head with other non-BA pepper beers like Hunahpu, Bomb!, and whatever else I have that is comparable.
Update:
Went head to head w/ Abraxas! Very close. Thicker almost viscous compared to Abraxas, more lingering pepper heat, more carbonation, more vanilla. Geez, this is too close to choose. Both are excellent.
