2014 bottles poured into snifter.

One of my favorite non-BA stouts. Pours dark black with a small khaki head. Little carbonation. Smells of cocoa and vanilla, a bit of sweet molasses as well as a decent alcohol presence. Tastes smooth and rich. Lots of dark chocolate, fudge and mocha. Vanilla beans make it even smoother. Just a touch of cinnamon and a nice even heat on the aftertaste from the peppers. Just an outstanding stout all around.

Glad to have finally tried this brew. Not quite perfect, but close to it. Feel was a bit off.

This was one of the best cinnamon spiced beers I've ever had! The flavors that came from this were perfect. The alcohol heat was well hidden by the chiles in the back. I will definitely be going to Huna day next year!

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

Appearance: Pours a pitch black with no light able to penetrate at any point. Thick dark brown one half finger head that recedes to a lacing relatively quickly. Beautiful looking beer.

Smell: Very complex, even when still cold. I smell a lot of bitter chocolate up front followed with a dose of vanilla. Good amount of sweetness from the vanilla. The smell alone is intoxicating.

Taste: Everything comes through here! This is simply amazing. Chocolate and vanilla just punch your tongue. Its amazing how much these flavors come out in this beer! At the end of the sip I taste the little twang from the chili peppers. Cinnamon flavor does not particularaly stand out to me. The beer is not overly sweet but the base seems like a great stout as well.

Mouthfeel: The best part of the beer! So thick and motor oil like. Great heavy body but still some nice carbonation on the tongue.

Overall: This beer is FULLY deserving of the hype it gets! Amazing. I am considering traveling to the release party one of these days. This is the best stout I have ever had hands down. So complex, there is so much going on but it melds together perfectly!
