A: Black and opaque beer showing a tall dark tan head. The lacing and retention are both good.
S: Fantastic smells of chocolate, sweet malts, coffee and a hint of spicy peppers.
T: Wow, the taste is an incredible mix of chocolate and habanero peppers, plus roasted malts typical to a stout. The pepper is just right and does not overpower. I also get warmth from both the alcohol and the peppers.
M: Low in carbonation, with a full body. The finish is bittersweet with a good dose of hot peppers.
O: An excellent mixture of the sweet and hot elements; highly recommended!

4.25/5 rDev -2.5%
Very tasty beer, and while the heat from the chili peppers is noticeable, the dark chocolate, cinnamon, light vanilla and coffee are more than enough to handle it. A very delicious beer, and one I was very happy to have the opportunity to try.
Still tasted very fresh after being in the growler for several weeks.
