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.

I like spicy beers and was very curious how a coffee, spice and Habanero pepper flavored beer would come together... overall a good beer, definitely drinkable, but you must like spicy things to enjoy... I could see myself drinking 1-2 at a time, but no more than that in single evening.

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.

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.
