2014 bottle poured into a snifter. Inky, black as night with a deep brown quarter inch head. Smell had licorice, molasses, vanilla, chocolate and a hint of cinnamon. Taste is very layered, and complex. Get waves of baker's and milk chocolate, red licorice, vanilla, brown sugar, and a dry cinnamon and chile finish. Mouthfeel is substantial and oily. This beer really leaves it's mark. Overall this is an outstanding beer. I think I might like chile kick of a Prairie Bomb a bit more, but this is a more complex treat.
