Thanks to TheGordianKnot for this. Just met him in Nashville, gave him $20 and had my bottle. No trading involved. Awesome guy.

Appearance: Pours a motor oil black with a half a finger of a brown head - almost identical to Zhukov. Blackest beers I've ever seen.

Smell: Smells of chocolate, coffee, slight dark fruit but not much, a little of the pepper and cinnamon.

Taste -Taste is chocolate, vanilla, chiles on the back end, cinnamon and coffee. Just awesome.

Mouthfeel: Thick mouthfeel - velvet like.

Overall: One of the best beers I've ever had - not sure if I like this or Zhukov more though.

Looks awesome. Deep and dark, one of the blackest stouts I've seen. Dark tan head, I love it. I smell the chile's and not much else. Smelled a bit oxidized as it warmed, not as pleasant. Taste is decent. Standard RIS with flavors of chile and very faint chocolate. The vanilla was absent until it warmed a bit. The unfortunate oxidization masks the potential of both the cocoa nibs and vanilla. I was hoping these flavors would be the highlight of the beer. Mouthfeel is nice and creamy. Overall, I'm a tad disappointed. I see the great scores, yet I'm perhaps distracted by a fridge full of Black Tuesday and Chocolate Rain that I know will never let me down. I can't help but think that Goose Island and the Bruery are way ahead of the flavored stout game.
