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.

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!!
