look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

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.
