Enjoyed at Tasty Tuesday

Big foamy dark head, good lacing and retention, jet black color

Nose sweet molasses, big aged malt and tons of fruit, apple and pome fruit, some wine, chocolate, fudge, fair cinnamon and pepper heat

Taste rich dark beer, intense malts but not too stout, like strong ale, little apple cider, big cinnamon, very spicy pepper heat with the cinnamon, light vanilla barrel and buttery, rich wine, little bitterness, roast, spices

Mouth this heavy syrupy, foamy carb, fair warming alcohol

Black color. Tan head. Bottle 079.

Great spice all around. Peppers, cinnamon, vanilla. Chocolate and fudge. Dark fruits and dark red wine notes. They all blend together well. Really enjoyable and very complex.

On draft. Dark black body, one finger mocha head, good retention. Milk chocolate, cocoa, oak, light tannin presence, touch of tobacco and dark fruit. Big time chili pepper heat on the finish. Up to that point, it's very nice and integrated with a big chocolate presence that integrates nicely with the red wine tannins but the heat really just kills it for me. I'd love less heat on this beer in general, but otherwise the body is medium bodied and appropriately carbonated, with a lingering burn on the finish that slows down my roll.

This one pours a very thick and imposing looking dark black color, with a small head, and no lacing.

This smells like like spicy and heat-laden peppers, with dry red wine, dusty oak, tobacco, fudgy chocolate, cinnamon spice, and roasted malt.

Unsurprisingly, this is pretty incredible. The red wine adds a little bit of sweetness to the bitter and spicy attack this beer provides. There's some mild fruitiness, and lots of spicy dark oak character. There's also a good amount of roasted malt, and some mild smoky tobacco character. I know GNVP is usually brewed with maple syrup, but I don't really get that here. I do get some very light cinnamon, cookie dough, brownie batter, espresso shots, and light vanilla. This is astounding, like Voodoo BA beers almost always tend to be.

This is medium bodied, rich and creamy, but strangely drinkable, with a lower level of carbonation. It's a slow sipper, and a highly enjoyable one at that.

Red wine barrels work well here to add some light sweetness to a pretty aggressive beer. This is pretty astounding.

Bomber into a snifter appears black in color with a khaki head.

This smells of peppery spice, vinous and oaky with char and earth to compliment.

It tastes oaky upfront with earth and charred grain then mild vinous note before and abundance of pepper in flavor and spice burning into the finish.

This is medium in body with modest carbonation. I always enjoy trying the GNVP iterations but this one ranks up there with possibly the spiciest ones to date. Not that its a bad thing, just caught me a little off guard. Would bang again.
