Received this as an extra in a trade. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a nice rich dark brown nearly black hue with a very nice one finger mocha head that simply does NOT go away. Nice creamy side lacing and a creamy blanket. Excellent retention.

S - Chili's are first and foremost here with some earthy smokey ancho chili goodness. Wonder what chili's they used...they actually overpower the coffee. I get nice chocolate and a lot of vanilla. Wish there was more coffee here but the prominent chili and vanilla make up for it.

T - Ah..okay, this is nice. First sip brings a smile to my lips. Lots of chocolate and earthy smoke to start, light sweetness, super delicious vanilla. The ancho chili lingers on the finish along with super, super faint bitter roast coffee. Nice dark bakers chocolate, sweet vanilla pods, getting no alcohol at all with this one. Delicious.

M - Mouthfeel is very, very nice for the style. Alcohol hidden wonderfully, very light carbonation. Would like it a bit more 'velvety' but yeah, well done.

O - Overall, this beer has been getting a TON of attention. I was very skeptical, but man oh man is this good. Its damn good, and that's without tossing this in a bourbon barrel! The faint (for me at least) lingering smoky ancho chili heat and vanilla wins this one for me. Very, very well done.

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

This is a very special stout.Pours almost pure black with a half inch head but I was careful on my pour.Nice frothy lacing that goes away and leaves a little ring around the head.Smell is coffee right away and alcohol to follow.First taste is coffee and then as I swallow here comes the chilis which I am sure cannot be good for my acid reflux but I had to gamble with this one...lol.Mouthfeel is warm and fizzy.This is not my favorite stout but it is definatly different and lives up to the hype in my opinion for at least originality.A bit boozy for my liking but all in all a great stout if you are open minded.
