4.29/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Enjoyed out of a 12 oz brown bottle with a green plastic seal around the crown that I guess is supposed to enhance the seal? Ironically, the grean shrink wrap popped off of its own accord before I got around to opening the bottle. No bottling date that I can find anywhere, but this is a pretty recent offering from PAA and Evil Twin. Poured into a large 20 oz snifter glass.

Appearance - An aggressive pour yields a one finger head that is fairly dense looking, almost mousse-like, the color of espresso foam. In fact, combined with the charcoal black body, the entire glass could be seen as a comically distorted glass of fresh espresso. Retention is quite good, lingering for several minutes before slinking back down into the body leaving a fine film of brown across the surface of the liquid. Lacing is present, but sparse, leaving intermittent streaks across the glass.

Smell - Big notes of bitter coffee and earthy tree bark come through at first, with some faint vegetal notes that would come from the chile peppers. As I allow it to warm up, notes of bitter cacao and even a faint hint of vanilla come through, but very similar to the Bomb! base beer, coffee tends to overpower all the other elements in this beer's aroma.

Taste - Again, big notes of coffee and now more aggressive presence from semidark chocolate, but those are the flag bearers for the beverage. On the finish, there is a faint buzz of warmth from the chiles, providing a little bit of spiciness to compliment the rich and bitter flavor profiles. There is a bit of char in the taste as well that wasn't as noticeable on the aroma. As it gets warmer, the sweetness definitely ramps up, with vanilla and roasted malt becoming more present.

Mouthfeel - Full bodied and moderate to low carbonation, with just enough to prevent the beer from becoming more of a strange chocolate/coffee strong wine. I'm amazed at how well the 13% ABV is hidden in this beer.

Overall, a very good beer, and kudos for it being easier to find than its cousin, Bomb!, however, it is no substitute as far as I'm concerned. I'm also not really sure what the point of this beer was, as the collaboration with Evil Twin didn't really seem to change it up enough to make it worthy of a completely different beer.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Pours very little tan head. Color is a dark caramel brown.

Flavor profile: Rich dark chocolate. Caramel malts. Molasses and raisins. Dark fruits. Some oak and bourbon flavors. The chili peppers are kind of muted here. The vanilla does show, however. Tons of roasted and burnt alts.

Mouthfeel: Roasted/burnt. Full bodied. Low to medium carbonation. Ends dry.

Overall, I wasn't that impressed with this one. It was too burnt for me. Barrel flavors didn't show very much either.
