decent but not blown away by this beer as I was hoping to be. definitely had the spices but IMO they were blended in a weird way, all there but hard to separate each one.

Ditmier brought out this big ole 750 a short while back.. very cool.. thanks Eric!!

Pours with a dark deep brown head.. the brew is the expected black with good retention and lace... thick on later pours.

Aromas are all over the place with dark chocolate and lite vanilla.. bits of char and some background chili aroma.

Flavor begins with chili spiked melted dark Hersheys.. espresso and black malts.. something that I can only derive as cinnamon (minor).. dark dried fruits and leather.. some tobacco shows with the sweet warmth... The chilis are about right for me.. I could even stand and enjoy some more.. Digging this one for sure... Pretty thick body and a lighter than expected carbonation... Very nice.

4/4/4.5/4.5/4

Thanks Eric... just another amazing brew from a better BA.
