My first review so this will be brief and echo others....pours with a thin head which was a little surprising. Great chocolate and spice flavors with a perfect amount, for me, of Habanero on the back end. Very interesting drink that grows on you. Only negative, as others have noted, is the watery mouthfeel. Maybe not a go to beer that you always have on hand but certainly one to try and to savor on occasion.

A- Dark as a starless night with a creamy light brown almost peanut butter like color head. The head quickly dissipates, quite a bit of carbonation on this one.

S- Roast coffee, chocolate, nutmeg, a spiciness of chili powder?

TM- taste is of a bitter chocolate with coffee undertones throughout. Can pick up the nutmeg, not getting much cinnamon as in the description on the bottle. Definetly get a hint of heat in this one in the beginning from the hot peppers that are nicely incorporated in this beer. The mouthfeel is a little thin for my liking in a stout but this beer is very well balanced. It has a lot of flavor but is not overwhelming complex to the point that it would be difficult to throw back several of these.

Overall this is a unique and flavorful stout that is well balanced and very drinkable. Worth giving a shot if you like unique stouts

I really can't believe that this isn't rated higher. I was originally thinking that this is one of those perfect beervana moments, but the more I keep drinking this beer, the more I really like it. Appearance is like any other stout-dark and opaque with a small amount of head. Smells of chocolate, light coffee roast, and a hint of cinnamon. Tastes of chocolate, cinnamon and on the back end, the perfect amount of heat. Mouthfeel is moderate. Overall, I love this beer. I wish it would have more body and little bit more sweetness, but this is a terrific beer as it stands. Must get more.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black body. Small khaki head. Very thin collar.

Smell - Graham cracker, which is clearly from the cinnamon. Chocolate. A little pepper.

Taste - Peppers are stronger. A faint burn, too. Chocolate and cinnamon, although the cinnamon is a bit overwhelmed by the pepper.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Not a heavy stout at all.

Overall - Nice adjuncts, even if they overpower the beer.
