First had: on tap at Voodoo

Dark brown-black pour, with a thin tan head that dissipated almost complete; no real lacing to speak of, but the beer left some unctuous streaks on the glass. Cinnamon up front in the nose, with an underlying thick, dark roasty maltiness. Big, complex taste, cinnamon sticks, vanilla, semi-sweet chocolate, burnt caramel, a bit of roast, some alcohol warmth, but reasonably tolerable. As with many pepper-containing beers, the heat from the peppers came in near the end, giving the mouthfeel a prickle, but not destroying the palate with intensity. All things considered, it was a pretty well-balanced beer. Body was medium to full, and it was a nice drinker, though after a while, the pepper taste/heat might get to be too much.

There will be obvious Hunahpu comparisons here, but this was a lot better than the vastly disappointing Cigar City beer.

On tap at Voodoo. Poured into a snifter. I forget the base (although the name would indicate BBVD), but brewed with vanilla beans, cinnamon and ghost peppers. I'm so glad I took the chance on this one.

A - Black with thin lacing. Sticks very well to the glass, thickness is apparent.

S - Tons of cinnamon, some sweetness and some chocolate.

T - Chocolate and vanilla come through before a blast of sweet, chocolatey cinnamon. The peppers only provided a hint of heat and flavor that came through in the end, which was probably for the best considering the type of pepper used.

M - Fairly thick, but it was poured a bit too cold to get a real feel on the body.

O - This was my favorite beer that they served during the event. I hope they bottle this one down the road, as it would possibly win a blind tasting among its peers. EDIT: I just drank a Hunahpu's 2013....I think Grande Negro may be better tasting.
