Haven't had the regular version but thanks to rudzud for sharing another big want from my list.

Light fizzy head, dark creamy head covering fades instantly, pitch black color with great legs.

Nose is awesome, coconut surprisingly, great dark choc, creamy choc, vanilla barrel, so much cocoa, toasted barrel, melting choc, little caramel, decent cinnamon. Amazing.

Taste great choc, lots of cinnamon, hot spicy cinnamon, great coconut, vanilla barrel, bitter dark choc, thick melting choc, light vanilla barrel, dark choc, little creamy, mild hot booze, little nutty and thick dark malt. Finish is semi sweet and lots of hot cinnamon and booze, more big coconut and vanilla barrel.

Mouth is med to fuller bod, decent carb, some warming booze little creamy and melting choc.

Overall great other than really spicy cinnamon is a bit too much, but otherwise awesome, great coconut and choc.

Received in a trade.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a super dark black hue with a thin halo that fades almost immediately.

S - Aromas are crazy, huge coconut barrel notes, enormous cinnamon notes, vanilla, faint chili, awesome.

T - Taste is loads of barrel coconut, crazy amount, lots of cinnamon. As awesome as this is the nose is this taste is awesome. Really really tasty with still tons of cinnamon.

M - Mouthfeel is really smooth and creamy, delicious and silky.

O - Overall this was a damn good beer, though the cinnamon was a bit heavy.
