Pours a very dark opaque black/brown with a 1 finger chocolate head. Head disipated leaving a layer of foam and a little lacing.

Smells of chocolate, coffee and sweet malt. The cinnamon and nutmeg come in when you take a drink. Then on the back end you get the burn of the habanero. Not overly spicy, just a nice bite to add some interest. My threshold for capsaicin is pretty high so this might be hotter than I'm letting on. For me the spice gives me the bite and flavor of a very dark bittersweet chocolate bar. I like it.

Mouthfeel is a bit thin, but this is a delicious and drinkable stout that gets better as it goes.

The flavor on this beer is great. I found the spice from the habanero was hiding on the bottom with the settled yeast. The only thing holding this beer back was the mouthfeel. I found it very watery.

12 ounce bottle dated 09/17/14

Bottle pours with a deep, black hue and a quickly dissipating mocha head. The beer leaves no lacing.

Aroma is almost exclusively creamy chocolate and other roasted malts. Coffee pokes its nose in the background, increasingly so as the beer warms. Cinnamon and nutmeg spices also make an appearance as the beer warms.

Taste begins with a balanced blend of the aforementioned creamy chocolates along with the cinnamon and nutmeg spices (not really getting any coffee). As the taste finishes, a slight heat from the habanero coats the tongue and back of the throat, never overpowering.

Mouthfeel is medium with low carbonation and very low bitterness.

Overall, this beer was an experience to drink! Odd Side really balanced all the ingredients well and produced one of the more interesting beers I have ever drank.
