12oz Brown bottle with no wax so was probably bottled spring of 2014. Poured into a snifter.

Appearance: Pours dark as motor oil with a tan head that recedes into a thin ring

Smell: Chocolate, coffee, vanilla and a whole lot of roasted aroma

Taste: An incredible blend of all the flavors mentioned in the aroma with a well balanced spice throughout

Mouthfeel: Creamy and just thick enough; the carbonation really tickles the tongue

Overall: I've had this a few times on draft and now I'm excited to crack a bottle to review. This is perhaps still the only chili beer I have had that I will enjoy to have again. Upon opening the bottle you are quickly greeted by all the ingredients with aromas of chocolate, coffee, and vanilla beans with all these working in perfect unison. This is even more demonstrated in the flavor with a blend of all these with a persistent chili spice that is persistent throughout and stays right in the back of your mouth. Most impressive is how hidden the alcohol is with little to no booziness in the finish.

Non waxed edition. Smell is of vanilla, coffee. Really nice
Taste is very coffee forward, creamy. As it warms up, the chilli begins to come out. Not my thing . Becomes very bitter as well. The chilli is a little too much. Dominating.It kills the vanilla, coffee. The smell is the best thing about this stout. Good, but not for me.

While I'm not normally a fan of stouts, this one is really amazing. It pours coffee dark and the smells of all of espresso, chocolate, and vanilla instantly make themselves known. The tastes of all of these are there along with a nice warm taste of chili peppers.

The mouth feel is good, with a heavier carbonation, and a thick, creamy body.

Great stout!
