Dark brown beer with a brown head. Smells like chocolate and coffee. Has a strong coffee flavor, with a hint of nutmeg and cinnamon, and has a nice burn from the habanero at the end. A little harsh, but still enjoyable. Surprisingly, the bourbon barrel aged version seems a little sweeter and has less of a bite than this. I really enjoy the concept, and beers like this is the reason I admire Odd Side Ales for their creativity.

$2.19 for a 12oz bottle @ Siciliano's. 6% ABV per the website. Brewed with coffee, cinnamon, nutmeg and habaneros.

Pours out to a deep black, forming a modest tan head with poor retention and minimal lacing. Carbonation is moderate. Thick layer of sludge in the bottom of the bottle. The nose is fantastic...dark cocoa powder, coffee, cinnamon...kinda like International Coffee Cafe Vienna. Nice amount of roasted malts in the nose, lightly chalky, vanilla and black walnut. The mouthfeel is initially prickly from the spice, with a medium body, giving way to some mild but very pleasant smooth heat. The taste is a recap of the aroma. Plenty of roasted malt, perhaps a bit too much as it doesn't quite keep up with the base malt and thins out the body a bit. The spices are very nicely balanced with the coffee and the roasted malts. Any more and it would be overbearing. The heat is also kept in check, adding a nice layer but not distracting from the flavor. Very complimentary with the mild bitterness. The coffee has a good flavor. It's not overly acidic nor fake and again, is complimentary to all the flavors.

I've had this on tap at Oddside, on tap at other places, and in the bottle. I seem to remember that about a year ago, I thought it was with too little body. It seems this has improved since then, however it could still bear a bit more (5%) base malt and a bit less (5%) roasted malt. As it stands, however, this is a very unique beer in which you can really taste all the ingredients and they are all in balance with each other. A testament to the brewers, as this is a tricky recipe.
