Poured from bottle into tulip. Date of review is 6/14/14.

Appearance- Pitch black with a half-finger dark tan head. Great lacing straight away. Little to no carbonation.

Smell- Peppers and cinnamon are the first two dominant scents. Following that, I detect brown sugar and vanilla. I imagine this is gonna be a sweeter stout. Just perfect in every aspect of scent.

Taste- Same exact flavors as scents, which is remarkable. The vanilla, cinnamon, peppers and cacao nibs all play their parts perfectly. So much hoppier than I had expected. A real treat to say the least.

Mouthfeel- Again, perfect in every way. Coats your mouth in a delicious stew of wonderful flavors and gives you the tingles in your throat. This beer has the perfect amount of peppers.

Overall- Almost a perfect beer. I will be seeking this beer out on every possible occasion. I will be trading for this, so I am ISO.

Pours dark black like oil with some tan head. Chocolate, some grain, a little coffee, and some sweetness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a nice roasted character. Very good, very complex stout.
