Pour is black with a small amount of tight brown head. Nose is heavily spiced like a Christmas ale but a bit larger and has some actual malt backbone. The habaneros seem fairly present but the bourbon barrel doesn't have much influence on the nose. A bit of sugary malt sweetness in back. This has a lot going on, really big flavors, the spice isn't overly strong, gives at a little kick on the back of the tongue and through the finish. Tons of Christmas spice to it, again not much bourbon, malts aren't really doing much and a bit of sugary mid palate through the finish. Fairly full body, thins a little in back, well carbonated.

A - Pours a midnight black with a thin tan head. The head dissapates quickly leaving very light lacing.

S - Lots of cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and dark chocolate.

T - Follows the aroma. Lots of dark chocolate, cinnamon, and vanilla. The finish has a light habanero heat and a touch of bourbon.

M - Light bodied with light carbonation. Very smooth drinking with a dry mouthfeel.

O - Not picking up much bourbon or oak in this one. That said, this is a very drinkable and flavorful BA Stout.

No bottle date, poured into a snifter

A- pours pitch black with a small foamy and sudsy khaki-tan head that reduces quickly to a small layer floating on top, no lace

S- cinnamon and nutmeg is first noticeable, reminiscent of a pumpkin spiced ale. The habanero is definitely noticeable and adds a slight burn to the nostrils, underlying chocolate with a hint of smoky malt and coffee round it out

T- Cinnamon and nutmeg flavors up front mesh with slightly sweet chocolate, a touch of coffee and papery spice close it out, faint heat from the habanero on the linger.

M- medium body & light carbonation lead to a slightly foamy mouthfeel, foamy finish with habanero warmth on a dry linger

O- The combination of cinnamon, nutmeg and habanero worked well together, but I would never know that this was aged in bourbon barrels. Couldn't pick up and barrel or bourbon notes at all
