4.5/5 rDev +7.9%
Pours near black with a very thin light brown head that quickly vanishes
Smell is strongly of roasted coffee and fresh wood with maybe a little alcohol and cinnamon.
Taste is unique, the dark, roasted malt flavor is there along with the wood, which lingers. There is also a really prominent spicy bite to this, almost like cayenne pepper.
Mouthfeel is dominated by a tingly, prickly feeling across the tongue, almost like crushed peppercorns. Medium body, not a stout, with good carbonation.
Overall a tremendous and unique beer. I think mine is fresh, and it expect age will bring out softer vanilla flavors and tame the spicy/peppery flavors and hide the alcohol better.

T: coffee, dark fruit, licorice and vanilla with a pleasant bitterness and slight alcohol presence.
M: medium to heavy body, good carbonation.
O: Doesn't know whether it not it it wants to be a brown ale or an imperial; but either way it's delicious.
