3.91/5  rDev -4.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 22 oz bomber into a tulip.

A-Pours dark black, small dark tan head with some lacing and small lingering bubbles.

S-Mild, faint roasted malts and chocolate, the spice reminds me of mexican chocolate cookies with the hint of pepper. Not overly impressive but still pleasant, more like CW's Satin Solstice with a kick.

T-Hits you with spice right away, my nose got tingly, which slowly moved to my lips and throat. Very heat forward but it blends slowly and quite deliciously to chocolate malts and a bit of hop bitterness. Spice isn't overwhelming, it is very complimentary to the underlying beer.

M-A bit thin but that may be due to the pepper oils. Otherwise it's like a typical imperial stout, a bit dry.

O-One of the better spice beers I've had but the underlying elements aren't anything radically different from the other standard CW stouts. Not a bad thing, but was hoping for something a bit different overall.

3.43/5  rDev -16.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Aroma is dark malts, milk stout characteristics and a good hint of heat. The flavor is dark malts, chocolate and a long and deep heat in the finish. The first sip was not too bad as far as heat but after the second it became far too intense, to be expected with an ale made with ghost peppers.

3.19/5  rDev -22%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black body. Small khaki head. Medium collar.

Smell - Milk chocolate. Light peppers. A little coconut and vanilla. That could be left over from the Floyd D'Rue I drank previously.

Taste - Chocolate. Between dark and milk chocolate. Peppers build quickly. Sharp spiciness. Finishes with a nutty caramel malt.

Mouthfeel - Very spicy. Medium carbonation and medium body.

Overall - The pepper doesn't bother me so much, the way I thought it might. It's really just the stout that isn't very impressive.
