Received as an extras in a trade. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Poured a nice rich darker brown with a good one finger mocha head that faded rather quickly to leave thin wisps.

S - Nose just pops here. Great coffee, chocolate, nice cinnamon, and great habanero heat. Nutmeg and cinnamon pops even more with a good swirl. Holy cow!

T - Taste is a fair amount of coffee and creamy chocolate. Faint cinnamon and a flash of habanero heat at first. Things mellow out very quickly in to a lightly bitter chocolate finish. Very balanced out with the habanero adding just that faint twinge of heat that simple peppercorns would not do. Tasty.

M - Mouthfeel is nice and creamy with just a little bit of carbonation. Super drinkable.

O - Overall, this is a delicious beer. Wish the appearance was better, and think this would be better as a richer, fuller imperial stout. Still, really really enjoyed this beer!

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

poured into tulip glass.

Appearance: Black bodied beer with 2 fingers of light khaki colored head. Head drops down to a ring around the glass. Spotty lacing.

Smell: Lots of nutmeg, roasty coffee, and roasty malts blend with some nice sweetness. Hint of cinnamon and earthy peppers. This smells fantastic!

Taste: This beer tastes pretty close to how it smells! Hint of marshmellow sweetness. Then a bunch of roasty coffee with a hint of earthy peppers and some heat. Next the cinnamon and peppers begin to mingle and add more complexity to the beer. Finishing with milk chocolate and hints of earthy peppers and some cinnamon. The heat from the peppers builds up and gets hotter as the beer warms and during the finish the entire time you a drinking the beer. I would say that the heat is at a solid 5/10.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with low carbonation almost moderate carbonation. The beer gets a little thin and watery as it gets to room temperature, but when the beer is cold I liked how full and oily it feels.

Overall: I dont know what it is, but I am really getting into these mexican style stouts lately. This beer is honestly just as good as Prairie Bomb! The only difference is that Prairie Bomb has a thick full mouthfeel that is just way better. I am pleasantly surprised and I honestly did not expect this beer to be this good! Its my first introduction Odd Sides Ales, but this beer has won me over, I am a fan of this Michigan brewery!
