12oz bottle generously shared by Doug. Poured into a GLBC snifter today, 5/1/2014.
A- Pitch black body, two finger mocha head with great retention and great lacing. Unfortunately this is the best aspect of this beer.
S- Coffee. Lots of bitter, acidic coffee which I like. As it warms up, there is a nice touch of vanilla, but as vanilla tends to be more bitter than sweet (husks), it really makes the nose not quite as good as it should be. Very little base chocolate malt, and definitely very little chili peppers and cocoa nibs.
F- Disappointingly mundane. This tastes like Founders' Breakfast Stout with with a drop of vanilla extract. Very little chili heat, though it does come out a bit as it warms up. But this is dominated by coffee, which was disappointing as I expected more Bomb! character at the very least.
M- Slick, thick bodied with a good creamy mouthfeel. This is pretty solid in terms of M.. which is not surprising considering the base beer. Very bitter and acidic finish detracts from it, though.
O- Disappointingly boring and one-note with all the coffee. I especially should have expected this with Evil Twin's stamp on this. Don't bother trading for this if you can trade for Bomb! at the same quantity and cost.. Bomb! is far superior.

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.
