This is a 2015. Pours super dark brown with a bit less than a finger of head, nice brown color, quickly dissipated. No light passing through this bad boy. Not much on the nose, some chocolate, maybe a bit of cinnamon, fair amount of booze. The taste is wonderful, like a delicious chocolate shake. Tons of cocoa, nice amount of vanilla and cinnamon, don't get much from the peppers. Incredibly smooth with a really long finish of bittersweet chocolate. Mouth feel is great. Overall just a great beer. I've had it on draft now (several years) and a bunch of the varietals. Meets the hype, or most of it a least.

Pours black, no head. Smells of coffee, alcohol. Tastes wallows in coffee, cinnamon, alcohol, prunes. Lots of carbonation and creaminess in the feel. Amazing.

Pours a motor oil black color. Aroma is super roasted malts, notes of chili and tobacco. Flavor is complex and roasted with notes of chili and a subtle sweetness. Has a big rich body and overall is really delicious.

L - Pitch black body and dark brown head

S - Brownie batter, cinnamon, fudge, vanilla, marshmallow, pepper skin.

T - Big wallop of vanilla up front with rich, melted dark chocolate and cocoa powder. Heavy pepper flavor an a dash of coffee. Pepper heat hits the back of the tongue, but doesn't set it on fire.

F - Thick and viscous. Feels like a massive 11% stout, but the dessert-like flavors make it highly drinkable even with the chili heat.

O - One of the better spicy stouts out there and one that really kicked off the Mexican Hot Chocolate Stout craze. Thumbs up!

Made it to Cigar City for the first time. Worth the drive! I had the 14 and the 16 5 Oz poor, liked the 14 better. Had to be sure so I tried the again, yep still like the 14 better. It appears to age well and loose a little of the zip/carbonation.
