Got to sample 2 ounces or so out of a waxed bottle in October 2013 (gave a 4.25 then).
Got to try a 8-oz pour on tap, next to Abraxas, in March 2014 (gave a 4.5. 4.25 for Abraxas)
This review's based on a 7-12-14 tasting of a May 2014 unwaxed bottle. Comparing it to a 2014 Huna consumed last weekend, despite the fact the adjuncts are slightly different.

A: like Huna, very dark appearance, with zero light escaping from the body. there is a red tinge at the edges. there's no head though, and weaker alcohol legs.

S: vanilla and very, very earthy coffee grinds. the ancho chile gets drawn out with a vigorous swirl - very interesting. I wish the cacao was more pronounced though

T: like Huna, the chile comes across most distinctly, without "heat." there's more of an earthy flavor than Huna, likely because of the addition of ancho AND coffee to the vessel. personally, though, I'd prefer more cacao, less coffee

M: thinner mouthfeel than Huna, despite the 14%. to its credit, this went down easier than expected for the ABV

This is a 5 star beer. To rate it lower is to wantonly find lacking what is in every way an superlative creation and satisfying beer; or you don't enjoy the style.

The beer is near black and thick looking; it has a medium to thick brown head with lacing.

Its smell is perhaps its weakest point, as it is less distinguished than its other attributes. A strong smell of coffee and roasted malt.

The combination of cacoa, peppers and coffee combine smoothly to create a delicious taste. It is mildly sweet and very strong. The high alcohol content seems to support a depth and variation in taste as you sip.

This beer is heavy full bodied, smooth in the mouth and extremely balanced for an ABV above the roof and a complex list of ingredients. This is one beer I buy every time I see it.

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

A - Pours a dark almost jet black dark chocolate. A very slow to form 1/4 inch dark tan head. The head is smell but it does linger for some time

S - Wow, lots going on here. Chocolate, coffee, a hint of pepper. Sounds weird but I even detect something that smells like a chocolate milk shake

T - Awesome flavor. Not as sweet tasting as the aroma would indicate. Lots of sweet chocolate dominate at first but then it fades to a oak type bitterness. Tastes of coffee are nicely mixed in the middle. It even has a little bourbon flavor on the finish.

M - Great heavy beer. It does has a pretty powerful burn but what else would you expect at 13% abv. Really easy to drink and provides a nice warming feeling as it goes down!

O - Fantastic beer. Glad I stumbled across one. Has a powerful but well balanced flavor. I was a little leery when it mentioned chili peppers, but they are very mild and hard to detect but are present. Will be picking another one up soon!
