Outstanding beer. Vanilla, chilis, cinnamon are all very apparent but none over-bearing. Delicious stuff.

Aroma: So much going on here... dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, cinnamon, a little bitter dark fruit. Easily a beer that I could sit there and smell for hours and remain content

Appearance: Pours like motor oil, the darkest of dark liquids... even while the beer is being poured the beer does not relenquish its hold on any light that may pass through it... opaque

Taste: As complex as the nose... every sip lends a different element of the beer, all of which are exceptional and are a pleasure in themselves... one sip is more vanilla forward, the next cinnamon and the next you finally get the heat from the chillies... I even get some milk chocolate, must be the vanilla and chocolate malt/cocoa nibs shinning together, you don't know whats coming but whatever it is will be delicious

Mouthfeel: The thickest beer I have consumed, coats every inch of your mouth... definitely a sipper but each sip is bliss, the alcohol may slow you down somewhat but thats not a bad thing

Overall: The best stout I have had... ever. I love barrel aged stouts but this beer gives me the vanilla I love from barrel aging, the roasted malt and dark chocolate from imperial stouts, as well as a little kick from the chillies for a little something different and is almost like a new experience with every sip... Awesome!
