Bottle of this from Doodler in a recent box. Cheers man!

APPEARANCE: Muddy black pour yields a three finger, foamy, medium tan head with very good retention. Jet black body with slightly higher levels of carbonation. Slowly fades to a full foam cap, then a wisp and ring. A simple ring remains but leaves no lacing down the glass.

SMELL: All the adjuncts are there. Chilies are first, with coffee, vanilla and cacao nibs, showing up in that order. Light roast, sweet cream and milk chocolate notes. Everything is really balanced in the nose. Can't get much better than this really. Bold and wonderful.

TASTE: Really flavorful with vanilla, chocolate and light roasted notes up front. Creamy chocolate and coffee through the middle into a big and lingering finish of bitter chocolate and coffee, sweet milk chocolate, vanilla, sweet cream and some spicy chilies. Chilies are well measured and give a little bite and heat in the aftertaste, but aren't overpowering. Lots of adjuncts but they're all well there and well balanced. Perhaps a touch too much heat lingers, but just great.

PALATE: Medium body and slightly higher carbonation. Creamy smooth on the palate, goes down smooth with a chili scratch at the swallow, finishing slightly mouth-coating. A chili bite and some heat lingers, but still really good.

OVERALL: This is excellent. Could be a touch thicker and a have a touch less carbonation for top marks, I'm really getting nit picky here. Fantastic, and there's no way this is actually 14% ABV either. Easily equal to Mexican Cake, and a tick below Huna. World class in any respect. Thanks again Doodler. Highly recommended.

I absolutely love this beer. The pairings of coffee, chili and vanilla are fantastic. I've been fortunate enough to try this on tap as well and I'm not sure I'm convinced it isn't better in the bottle.
