Picked this up from a great trade with Mike! Bottled Jan 2013. An aggressive pour yields a beautiful pitch black body with a quickly fading one finger caramel-colored head with basically no lacing. The nose is complex and incredible! The chilies, cacao nibs, and cinnamon are all equally represented, and when you throw in the whiskey barrel, it's over the top! Also getting coconut and vanilla along with hints of dark chocolate and booze. The taste is just as complex. Once again, everything comes through as advertised, which isn't always the case with these types of beers. Huge cinnamon notes, huge cacao, and huge, but not too huge, chili peppers. Tons of dark chocolate fudge and coconut, along with hints of oak, vanilla, whiskey, tobacco, and subtle dark fruits. The mouthfeel is thick and rich and incredibly smooth. The heat from the chilies is there, but it's perfection. Too many times with chili beers, the peppers overwhelm and distract. But not with this beer. Overall, this beer delivers in every way. All the advertised elements were bold, yet equally represented. Can't think of any other beer that delivered on what was advertised quite like this. Highly recommended!
