Poured into a tulip glass.
Appearance - Pitch black, with a small, tan head.
Aroma - The aroma is what first got me. There’s so much going on here. The aroma punched me in the face soon as I barely cracked the cap. It’s huge. I picked up a ton of coffee and dark chocolate. The chili is definitely there as well. The vanilla was less apparent, but still noticeable. Overall, it was like BOMB! turned up to 11.
Taste - There is so much happening with the taste. Like the aroma, it’s huge, but it’s so well-balanced. I got big notes of coffee, bitter chocolate, vanilla, and the chili pepper. It was basically everything you’d expect, just more intense. The flavors all shine in their own right, and no one flavor is too dominant. The aftertaste was dominated by bitter chocolate with a lingering chili tingle. Alcohol is incredibly well-hidden. Awesome.
Mouthfeel - Silky smooth. Light, and not as thick as one would think it would be. The chilies really add to the experience in a fantastic way.
Overall - I try not to be a homer when it comes to Oklahoma beer. Since I'm not originally from the state, I feel like I can objectively assess the local offerings. That being said, this beer is something special. I have been looking forward to its release since it was first announced. Thankfully, it did not disappoint. I like it more than BOMB!, and it's one of the best non-barrel-aged stouts I've ever had. I really think it will age beautifully, and I can’t wait to see how it evolves throughout the upcoming months and years. It’s well worth the price, so pick it up while you can.

Bottle courtesy of kantrauch on RB. Pours the deep, rich black with semi-fluffy mocha colored head that had some decent staying power. Head fades into thick collar, and heavy wisps. Aroma is mostly coffee and dark chocolate, with some cinnamon and a slight hint of vanilla peeking through as well. Taste is the chocolate up front, the chile right behind that, the coffee comes in after the chile heat fades and then the coffee fades back into the chile heat. I do not taste the vanilla. I also get a touch of smoked woodiness in the aftertaste. Body is lacking quite a bit IMHO. I like my stouts to have a huge, thick mouthfeel and this is a medium body, but has the nice low carbonation I enjoy in stouts. I enjoyed this beer very much; the aroma was enticing and hinted at what you could expect from the taste, without giving too much away.
