Reviewed from notes from 7/24/14

A- Pours a thick, viscous motor-oil black with a small light brown head that recedes to a film and leaves some lacing. When swirled some nice alcohol legs are visible.

S- Massive waves of cinnamon and chocolate waft out of the glass immediately! Tons of sweet chocolate and bitter dark chocolate. There is almost a maple syrup smell, and some molasses going on. Fudge and some whiskey and vanilla. The nice touch of chilies gives a spicy and sweet touch that rounds this out. So complex and so fantastic!

T- It bursts with flavors as soon as it hits the tongue! Bitter dark chocolate up front, followed by logs of chili peppers, and a whole lot of whiskey as well. Some dark roasty malts give some coffee-like flavor. Hints of cinnamon and vanilla add to the complexity. A lot of boozy heat and spicy heat make this a very slow sipper.

M- Incredibly thick and viscous, nice carbonation, dry, and a good bit of heat.

O- This is just an awesomely crafted beer that hits so many different notes without being messy! I personally would prefer a little less booze and heat to allow for some other flavors to shine more, but it's a very minor complaint!
