A- Thick black, medium coffee lacing that spreads 1" legs with little movement. This beer does not give a gum to the glass when swirled around. Rather light, but makes up in other areas.
S- Big chili spice upfront (equal to Mexi Cake or Copper Kettle Mexican Chocolate Stout). Then the chocolate is present pretty large; not bitter or sweet, but in the middle. Some charred figs in the background.
T- I like heat, so I am biased here. The chili spice burns 1/2 second in and for 20 seconds after. I love it. Some chocolate, somewhat on bitter side is present, followed by the charred figs.
M- It is on the thinner side, but it does not bother you with the heat from the chilies. I am not a fanboy of CW, but I really enjoy this beer.
O- A very well executed hot a peppery spiced stout. This was a pleasant surprise!!

4.11/5 rDev +0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours like a dark Imperial Stout with little head that quickly collars.
Smell: Dark chocolate, dark fruit and roasted malt. There is a definite pepper presence underneath it all that tingles the nostrils.
Taste: Semi-bitter roast over dark chocolate, followed by the chili heat on the middle of the tongue. As the drink washes over the palate, the peppers creep to the back of the throat and offer an assertive burn there, followed by some coffee and dark chocolate; both of which fade out to end the experience.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied for the style, but still full enough to be enjoyably drinkable and not annoyingly watery.
Overall: Nothing wrong with this beer at all, although I wish they would do a version with some vanilla. After recently having had Mexican Cake and enjoying it, these peppers (from what I've read, there are Anaheim chiles and Ghost peppers) are more robust, offering some good taste and not just burn at the back of the throat. Would definitely drink this again.
