Poured cold from the bottle to a 14oz snifter a deep black with a full two finger foamy, big bubbled, super long lasting tan head

subtle aroma of milk chocolate and chilis in the way back.

Lighter bodied than expected, the heat comes quick and hard, big carbonation - almost to the point of distraction.

Smoky stout, great big chili peppers, chocolate in the way back.

I'd give this one another shot, but not this vintage.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

two finger tan, frothy head with nice lacing on a jet black body. Aroma is clean but light with mild roasted malt, only a little chili pepper, with mild cocoa. I want more from the aroma. Flavor is not at all what I expected. The chili is very late and although it lingers for better or worse it doesnt really attack the palate. I want more from the chilis here. It really comes across as table pepper as appose to spicey chili peppery. There are notes of dark fruit, mostly some strawberry with oak and some roasted malt, Medium to full body and light to medium body. Oh, and where is the chocolate? I am not getting much from the chocolate but its there.
