Significantly better than any other spiced stout I've had (Abraxas, Mexican Cake, etc). Great balance, complex flavors that aren't overly aggressive. Well worth the effort.

In the family of non-barrel aged stouts, this may be the best. Better than Abraxas in my humble opinion. Less chiles and more cinnamon/vanilla.

Quite possibly the best beer on the planet. Extraordinarily complex.
