look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

beer poured from bottle aggressively. Jet black, little to no lacing. Half a finger of light brown head quickly dissipates.

coffee smell right away, i get a little of the nutmeg and cinnamon in the background, but the coffee is the major player int he aroma. i do smell some chocolate in there as well. i am not getting the bourbon like in other bourbon ages beers. i know Odd Side makes this in a non bourbon aged as well, so i double checked the label and it is the BA version.

First sip gets a very sweet coffee flavor, much different than other coffee stouts. i think its because the cinnamon and nutmeg are cutting the bitterness of the java bean. i'm still not getting much of the bourbon, its there but very minimally. I didn't get the habanero up front, however after i swallow the first sip, there it is tingling the back of my through, not overly noticeable, but enough.

this is an extremely well done beer, very complex and a lot of in your face flavors all mixed quite well. this would be a 4.8 4.9 had there been a little more bourbon flavor, that was the only real disappointment for me.

look: 3.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a dark brown with a small, quickly disappearing off-white head. The bourbon from the barrel aging process comes off strongest in the aroma. There is also an aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg. The cinnamon dominates the flavor, giving the beer a nice sweet taste. There is also some coffee, nutmeg, and of course a nice spicy burn in the finish. The beer has a nice complexity of flavors and a good medium body mouthfeel. I enjoy this better than the original.

4.53/5  rDev +9.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter.

A: Deep dark black, impenetrable to light. Minimal head, but significant lasting lacing rimming the glass.

S: Cinnamon, nutmeg, chocolate. Incredible, it smells like you just opened the door to a chocolate house.

T: Chocolate early then the melody of spices. The back end brings out the barrel (which is underdone and somewhat muted) and then finishes with a mild warming from the habanero. The habanero flavor is absent, just provides a slight warming sensation complimenting the bourbon taste on the back end.

M: Much to thin. This beer really needs more body and malt. Carbonation is perfect, mild and complimentary to the spices.

O: An excellent combination. The habanero is perfectly executed and compliments the warming sensation from the barrel aging perfectly. However, the amount of malt character is lacking and the beer really needs more body to better execute the aging. Needs more malt is my only negative critique.
