4.74/5 rDev +7.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75
Appearance - The beer was a dark black color, looking like used motor oil. A slight mocha head topped the glass.
Smell - The aroma I detected was almost a syrupy coffee smell. The sweetness in the aroma was almost overwhelming.
Taste - This is heavy. Initially, I am led to believe this will be sweet like molasses. Then, I notice cinnamon, vanilla, and a hint of pepper. The malts give the impression of coffee, but it is not overwhelming. The warming in the aftertaste is mild, but it is the thick sweetness that gives the biggest impression.
Mouthfeel - This is thick and coats the tongue and throat. It leaves an impression well after the swallow.
Overall - I liked this one a lot. This is a fantastic stout.

Another treat to have in my glass and an overdue review. Thanks to jamminjohnson for sending me this bottle of 13 and the matching abraxas snifter.
Bottle from 11/2013
a one of the more attractive stouts, rich and sludgy with a great shine. Nice dark brown head that hangs a minute and streaky lacing on the glass.
s all the goodies. Cinnamon chocolate roasted coffee, really nice balance. Small hints of the heat
t takes the pass from the nose and slam dunk. All the flavors in perfect harmony. Rich chocolate with a glazing of cinnamon and a dash of spice. Really nice.
m great full body. Lush and rich. Big and unapologetic, but oh so silky and easy to destroy the entire bottle on my own.
o overall this is a hunah killer. I am not usually a fan of spicy beers and this beer, right now 6 months post bottle is just perfect. I have had this beer a few times and this is probably my favorite experience with it. Really just fantastic
