Poured from a bottle into a snifter

A. Pours black with a 2 finger khaki head with some pretty good retention. Spotty lacing around glass.

S. Roasted malts, milk chocolate, vanilla, and definite chili peppers are filling the nose. Sneaks very nice. Sweet with some spice.

T. Yum. This is very nice. All the notes from the nose. The chocolate is rich and the pepper is there just for enough spice. Some vanilla and coffee. Chewy. Very good!

M. Velvety. Slight carbonation which I like in a stout. Plays well with the chili. Clean finish. Really nice.

O. An awesome beer. Very nice flavors that balance well. I'm really happy with this beer and will be looking for more.

Really, really well balanced. Not one flavor is overwhelming here, but there is a lot of complexity going on. Very impressed.

This beer is so good it's stupid. The smell is an intoxicating mix of coffee and dark chocolate that hints at the beer's heavy alcohol content. The taste of the coffee is awesome. I can see why the brewer featured the coffee brand on its label. The rich flavors of the beer hide the alcohol taste dangerously well. While it is a gorgeous rich dark espresso color, there was not much of a head on it.

Pours a black body with mahogany highlights. Head is tan and 1/4 inch. Lacing and head retention are good.

Smell is of fresh brewed coffee, slightly acidic. Smoked malt and oak are also present, almost like burning wood. As beer warms the chili pepper starts coming through, though I don't get much cacao or vanilla beans. Hops aren't present but at 13% abv, alcohol is definitely there.

First tastes are of smoked malt, chocolate, and chili pepper. Heat from ancho and heat from alcohol complement each other nicely. Not getting much vanilla or hops but flavor of acidic coffee makes up for it.

Mouthfeel is medium heavy, nicely coats the tongue. Carbonation is high for such a high alcohol stout. Head stayed around in some form adding a nice frothy texture.

Overall great beer. Interesting combo with the espresso, pepper, and chocolate executed well. Flavors are bold without being overwhelming and alcohol is well hidden for such a high abv. The coffee and peppers really hit my sweet spot, looking forward to having more of this soon.
