Jet black in color and impenetrable to light. A wisp of khaki colored foam covers most of the top of the beer. Aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg dominates the nose. The front of the palate is an assault of spices including cinnamon and nutmeg. I barely get a whiff of coffee. I get some warmth from the habaneros that leaves a lasting but gentle burn. It's a bit sweet and there's a lot going on,but my palate enjoyed the ride.

12 ounce bottle into snifter; no bottle dating, but is a recent release. Pours fairly pitch black color with a 1 finger dense dark tan head with decent retention, that reduces to a thin lace cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, cinnamon, nutmeg, toast, dark bread, vanilla, clove, oak, light bourbon, pepper, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt, spice, and moderate barrel notes; with good strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, dark bread, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, clove, oak, light bourbon, pepper, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Slight spice/pepper heat on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, dark bread, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, clove, oak, light bourbon, pepper, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of dark/roasted malt, spice, and light-moderate barrel flavors; with a great malt/spice balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a creamy and lightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice spiced stout. All around good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt, spice, and light-moderate barrel flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

Black beer with a tan brown head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is chocolate coffee and peppers upfront with cinnamon nutmeg. Heavy cinnamon and taste with lots of chocolate and peppers with just a little bit of heat. The finish has just a little bit of the oak in the barrel along with the chocolate coffee. It's a lightly oily medium heavy mouth feel.
