4.63/5 rDev +6.4%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Served from a bomber into a Smuttynose tulip. Bottled a month and a half ago.
Appearance- Pitch black with 2 fingered fluffy mocha head that lasted about 3 minutes. Gorgeous lacing.
Smell- Choclate, cinnamon, coffee, vanilla. Dark stone fruit. No booze.
Taste- Similar to the smell, but with heavier cinnamon and very light chili. The Habanero leaves a nice mild burn at the end though.
Mouthfeel- Surprisingly light. No hint of booze. Very drinkable. Nice thickness.
Overall- I'd say that this is a new permawant. Sooo good.

Poured from bottle into Founders KBS goblet. Date of review is 7/23/14.
Appearance- One of the best looking beers I have ever seen. A vigorous pour results in a 3/4 inch SUPER creamy cardboard brown head. Lacing seems to be spectacular right out of the fridge.
Smell- I get roasted malt right away. I would argue cinnamon is the next scent followed by vanilla, hot peppers and chocolate. This is quite a unique smelling beer.
Taste- Wow, chocolate and coconut almost knock me out in a fantastic kind of way. I also get smooth creamy vanilla and the heat from the peppers. Cinnamon is taking a backseat in the flavor for sure.
Mouthfeel- Just about as close to perfect as a beer can get. Super creamy vanilla makes you think this is a milk stout, then BAM, hot peppers. Makes your throat tingle long after you swallow and I LOVE it.
Overall- Such a great beer! I am usually a barrel-aged snob, but this beer is perfect how it is. I cannot even imagine trying the apple brandy version, I just might die.
