Pour is black with a tight mocha colored head. Nose is heavily spiced, ginger bread, nutmeg, cinnamon, pine needle. Taste is spicier, still a ton of spice. Lots of cinnamon and nutmeg with a fair about of pine needle and lots of cayenne pepper spice. Body is full, mild carbonation, soft palate.

Big bottle from the brewpub that's been sitting in my fridge since it was released. Finally pulling the trigger. Pours thick and syrupy black with a small dark brown head on top. Aroma is, well, chocolate covered broccoli and other vegetables with not much spice presence, a bit of smoke. Weird. Aaaaand the flavor. Oh my lord. Rotting metallic burnt shoe with a little extra smoke and leafy green bitterness. What the hell? Thick bodied with low carbonation. This is exceedingly awful and not that old (stayed in the fridge, too). Goodness this is bad.
