Bottle purchased in Oklahoma City, also had this at The Beer Trappe in Lexington, Kentucky a couple days beforehand. Liked the Bible Belt variation of this alot, happy to be able to review this now as well. ABV listed as 13% on the label.

Appearance - Oily black pour into a snifter. A finger or so of brown head forms, a swirly cap and thick ring are left by the end along with some good lace. Impressive for the ABV for sure.

Smell - Nice nose with prominent cocoa and chili spice, quite a bit of roasted malt as well, which rounds it all out very well. Coffee is on the lighter end of the spectrum but becomes more noticeable with warmth. Vanilla if you look for it. Noticeable alcohol but not bad. Pretttty nice.

Taste - More vanilla here, still very much cocoa/roast/chili forward. Coffee is pretty understated for me but can't really complain much. Smoke and heat from the chiles starts to build with further sips but it's not over the top and melds well. Touch of molasses.

Mouthfeel - Great mouthfeel, nice higher carbonation feels unique for a stout of this size, diggin' the liveliness on the palate. Very nice melding of flavors, a little booze noticeable but pretty damn drinkable. 12oz is no problemo solo.

Overall - As far as ridiculous-ingredient imperial stouts go, this may be as balanced, drinkable and enjoyable as it gets.
