Very fun stout to try. I knew it was aged on peppers but underestimated the "heat" that was present. Good, drinkable mouthfeel with a nice blend of cocoa, vanilla and peppers. The peppers started present and then flexed their muscles as it warmed. I recommend sharing the bottle (as I did) or having some Pepto available.
