no wax, recent release
The beer pours an inky black-dark brown topped by a thin, loose tan head that fades quickly. There appears to be decent carbonation, some lace while drinking, but no sediment. The nose is initially cocoa and roasted coffee when chilled - notes of vanilla, caramel, some licorice, and booze come out as it warms. The taste is predominantly bitter and roasty coffee upfront, which is then smoothed out by the cocoa and malt sweetness and finished by lingering booze and bitter cocoa. Chilies? Naw son, don't get the heat, flavor, or scent (though they are possibly contributing to the beer's bitter finish?). Otherwise, the beer has bold, identifiable adjunct flavors, nothing is too muddled. For being 13-14% abv it has reasonably hidden booze, which is no doubt related to its sweet, full body, silky mouthfeel, and generous carbonation. For a stout this big, it's quite drinkable and maintains that shelf-status appeal. I'd drink this again, probably not if I'm out somewhere, but it's certainly appropriate for that day when you're just hanging out in your PJays and decide it's definitely 5pm in the middle of the Atlantic, so why not?

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

12 oz bottle poured in to a tulip. Thanks scotlyn911!

A- Pours like used motor oil with a half in brown head.

S- Lots of coffee and roastiness with some chili spice and alcohol in the background.

T- Oh, how this beer changes as it warms! The chilies become much more pronounced towards the end. My first impression was of a very roasty dryness, but the taste quickly transformed, showing signs of dark chocolate and raisins. Almost no sweetness.

M- The feel is medium-full with medium amount of carbonation

O- Very nice beer. Would have again.
