Very Dark brown with a tan head. It appeared to be less thick on the pour particularly compared to Man Bear Pig which we had drank before this beer.
Boozy on the nose but not over powering which is just the way it finishes. Malt chocolate, slightly spicy, sweet molasses but not overly sweet. I liked the balance in flavors.

T- Kind of weird (not saying that's bad). It's mostly chocolate (mix of milk and dark like the smell) with some chili heat on the finish. Every now and then, I get hints of dark sugars and a bit of green apple. 

F- Medium feel. A little booze burn. Could be thicker and richer. 

O- It's good, but I wouldn't put it near it's ranking. It makes me wonder how awesome batch 1 was, not that I'm ever going to get to try it. It's definitely worth a try if you're into pepper stout

This review is for batch 2.

L- Similar to most stouts. Dark brown to black with a mocha head. Started around a finger on the initial pour, faded to a thin ring that lingered. Medium-thin pour.

S- Blend of dark and milk chocolate. Some molasses and chili. Every now and then, I get a little bit of green apple from the brandy.

T- Kind of weird (not saying that's bad). It's mostly chocolate (mix of milk and dark like the smell) with some chili heat on the finish. Every now and then, I get hints of dark sugars and a bit of green apple.

F- Medium feel. A little booze burn. Could be thicker and richer.

O- It's good, but I wouldn't put it near it's ranking. It makes me wonder how awesome batch 1 was, not that I'm ever going to get to try it. It's definitely worth a try if you're into pepper stouts.
