4.23/5  rDev +8.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: black as night with a copper/cream head that subsides quickly

S: roasted coffee with hints of cinnamon with a bit of sweetness

T: subtle toffee taste in a sweetness like a roated marshmellow, roasted coffee to match the aroma, cinnamon and pepper at the back. Not too much heat but just enough to remind you it's there

M: thin body for a stout, more akin to a porter in mouthfeel

O: this is a great pass at the spicy stouts, the flavours all blend together quite well

a huge shout out goes to jas45678 for including both the BA and regular version of this beer as extras in a recent goandpickitupformebro (believe it or not, this feind had the never to include even more extras). both beers enjoyed side by side from a hunah snifter (regular) and an abraxas snifter (BA).

a - regular version poured with a deep rich black as midnight sludge with a nice off-tan colored head that didn't hang long and left a ring of bubbles on the surface where the glass met the beer. swirling the glass brought it back to life and there was some spotty lace. the bourbon barrel version on the other hand, had a gorgeous shine to it. no head to speak of at all. more ominous...oooh ahhh

s - gorgeous nose. this beer can hang with hunah, mexican cake, the stone xoco...something or other. really great blend in the nose of rich chocolate with just the right amount of cinammon and spicing.

t/m/o - not as full bodied as i expected, but the flavor is there. a wonderful blend of chocolate, spice, coffee, cinnamon and nutmeg. super silky, super smooth...a bit on the thin side, but then again this isn't an imperial stout. great great great beer...definitely seek this out.

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.
