This beer pours a thick motor oil jet black with a half finger head that is very dark brown with a garnet hue. The head dissipates completely and almost immediately and there isn't a single spot of lacing. Smell is the only draw back only because I thought it would be stronger, but it is still amazing and this bottle is about a year old. The rich chocolate, roasted malts really stand out with a nice mix of cinnamon and peppers as well. Taste is everything I hoped it would be and more. A great blend of sweet chocolate and roasted malt that give off a little hint of coffee up front, then mid sip the vanilla takes over with the cinnamon and a touch of heat from the peppers making for the perfect finish. Feel is perfect for a stout. Thick, full bodied and very viscous. Overall lives up to/exceeds the hype. This beer is phenomenal!

2014 vintage. Met or exceeded every expectation that I had. Roasted grains, chocolate, vanilla, and cinnamon throughout the nose and taste. Did not get much chili, which I was thankful for. Silky smooth mouthfeel. Would recommend, and will seek again.
