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 beige colored head. Head drops down to a ring around the glass. Spotty lacing.

Smell: 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!

A - Black velvet, with a back drop of reddish glow. Big creamy mocha head that weaves a web of lace after each drink.

S - Coffee beans, vanilla extract, licorice, syrup, bananas.

T - Opens with a rich chocolate, followed by root beer, vanilla, coffee, and finishes with with some heat. Bitter and a bit of an odd after taste.

O - This is a very unique stout with some heat in the back end. Very impressive look to this along with an inviting smell that works into a really solid tasting brew. Loses points with a bad aftertaste and mouthfeel. I will not get this again.

Smells like chocolate and the taste follows up front, some coffee and creamy smoothness in the middle. It then leaves you with mild lingering pepper. By far the best pepper infused beer I have tried, the pepper is there but never overbearing. I will definitely buy this again.

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.
