Red wax - split with the wife. I'm blanking on how I got this bottle but thank you to that special someone. Drank immediately after Abraxas.

Black with a cinnamon head that puddles to the edges.

Big blast of coffee right off the bat. Big deep inhale pulls out the chiles to the point of feeling it deep in the recesses of my snout. Smells rich.

Peppers, roast, coffee, more peppers....a mix of green bell and jalapeno.

Mouthfeel is oily....like drinking the dregs of a bottle of Marconi. Mike North recommends putting it on your shoes.

Pales in comparison to Abraxas. The pepper juice aspect is actually tough on the stomach. Love spicy food, love peppers, love a good stout, don't love this.

Hellz yeah, long time want. Gracias Danielson. 6 oz. poured into a Westy Chalice on October 25th, 2013.

A - Deeply dark caramel coloring here, light frothy brown head. Fair legging and minimal retention. Good start.

S - Massive espresso, hot chocolate cocoa, light vanilla. It's nearly over-the-top on the coffee note. Little traces of alcohol phenols, which is great considering the abv.

T - Equally heavy coffee beans, lesser baking spices, black pepper, bitter and almost tannic in nature. I can't think of another huge stout that exhibits so much english barleywine quality to it. It feels miscategorized to me.

M - Medium-heavy body, plentiful alcohol warming, higher carbonation than usual.

D - Very unique. Certainly memorable but I'm not entirely sure what to make of it until I can get a revisit.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12 oz bottle with blue wax.

A: Pitch black - no light getting through this one. Medium brown head. Really nice looking.

S: Aroma explosion. Mostly dark chocolate in the nose with some coffee and roasty malt.

T: Way sweeter than I had anticipated based on the nose. Huge sweet milk chocolate upfront blended really well with hop bitterness. As the chocolate flavor fades, sweetness is left on the tongue and the coffee presence is more noticeable. The chili flavor was the last thing I noticed and it was exactly as prevalent as I hoped it would have been, not overly imposing at all but just a really note subtle note. I never would have guessed that this is a 14% beer.

M: Very smooth. Less thick than I would have imagined and medium carb.

O: Worth trading for. A very exceptional stout that boasts huge and unique flavors with great drinkability.

Abraxas, Darkness, BCBCS, The Berserker, Abyss

12 oz bottle poured into a snifter

A - Dark as night pours out of the glass like syrup, small tan foam head with minimal lacing.

S - Where to begin, this may have been the best smelling beer of the night with Roast, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and peppers. Awesome smell and gave off more and more aroma as it warmed.

T - Taste was as good as the smell, peppers were not prevalent which i do not mind as Abraxas has the peppers and cinnamon too upfront. Good amount of vanilla chocolate and coffee in the taste and they really work together well here. Very balanced

M - Full bodied beer with a creamy chewy mouthfeel. It has all the qualities I look for in a stout. Alcohol is hidden perfectly and it goes down smooth.

O - This was quite an enjoyable experience and ended up being one of my favorites of the night. My palate was quite destroyed afer 6 huge stouts and several DIPA's

Will definitely be seeking this and pirate bomb out again
