Pink wax - Poured into a Westbrook snifter
A - Pours bitch black and settles quickly with little head retention to a light khaki ring around the glass. The lacing is slippery and it displays a decent amount of carbonation around the outside of the glass. I can't wait to dive in!
S - The aroma is of dark roasted coffee and spices. There is no mistaking that there are chilies in this beer. Almost remind me of Abraxas (I hope I win the lottery for Ba Abraxas...lol). You can also detect subtle hints of cinnamon and nutmeg. There is maybe the tiniest bit of vanilla, but nothing overwhelming. Enough is enough...let's drink it!
T - The first flavor that hits my palate is coffee. It almost is reminiscent of BCBCS, but then the spiciness of the chillies kick in. Like the nose, there is a faint amount of vanilla and a hint of cinnamon that make themselves know on the back end. The spice of this beer covers them up. There is a touch of dark chocolate, but there is mostly coffee in this one. Trust me, there is nothing disappointing here.
M - Perfect balance of carbonation bite, spiciness, and depth of flavors. Medium to full bodied, mouth coating with a long finish.
O - This is one beer that is hard to criticize. What else is there to say about this that hasn't been said already. I am glad that I have another in the cellar. This one see,s like it can go another 6mo.- 1yr, but it probably won't make it that long. I would be more inclined to drink this fresh as to get all it has to offer before it fades away. Buy/trade for one if you haven't had it! I promise you won't be disappointed.

The smell of coffee is very strong. The taste is a smooth mix of coffee and cocoa. It's a little thick on the tongue. It's rich in flavor and aroma. it's certainly one of the best coffee beers I've ever had. I also appreciate the size of the bottle and design.
