4.4/5 rDev +1.4%
12 ounce bottle. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with an inch frothy tan head that stuck around for a while. There's a decent amount of lacing. I like the aroma, the brew smells like coffee, burnt/charred malt, chilies, vanilla, bittersweet chocolate and some earthy smokiness. I think the taste is mostly like the aroma, but there's also some roasted malt and a bit of nuttiness and dark fruit noticeable. There's a nice amount of heat from the chilies, but it's not overpowering at all. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's slick and smooth with a good amount of carbonation. I thought this was a pretty good brew, I'll definitely have to pick up another bottle the next time I come across some! $9.49 a bottle.

4.38/5 rDev +0.9%
12oz bottle, poured into a teku glass
A- pours jet black with a viscous looking body, small light-brown foamy head eventually reduces to a reign around the glass, leaving some short lasting lace behind 4
S- smoky roasted malt gives big aromas of dark chocolate and espresso, the addition of the spice gives it a cake-like aroma with the vanilla providing a icing-cream aroma. The chiles are felt on the nose, also picking up dark molasses, walnut, bourbony charred oak and dark fruits 4.25
T- the base stout shines with huge smoky roasted notes of coffee and bitter-sweet dark chocolate, sweet molasses mixes with dark fig & raisin, woody and nutty notes gives illusions of bourbon soaked oak, the vanilla seems to enhance the chocolate profile. While nearing the finish, a slight tanginess kicks in with notes of tart cherry, the chills provide just a hint of warmth on the linger 4.5
M- medium-heavy body with low carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that eventually turns creamy, giving a smooth finish with slight alcohol warmth, abv is hidden pretty well considering it's 13% 4
O- having an outstanding base stout only helps the spices enhance it's flavors. All ingredients seem to be balanced, unlike other popular beers I've had of this style, well done 4.5
