3.19/5 rDev -22%
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.

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!!
