The main thing they got right on this beer was the prevalence of the peppers. Some say it is too spicy but i think it has just the right amount of heat.

Aroma is dark malts, cinnamon and definitely creeping chilies. The flavor is dark malts, cinnamon, dark fruit/fruit and a mix of chilies and acidity in the finish.

Poured a jet black color with a one finger, light brown head of foam. It smelled of cinnamon and habanero. Very spicy early on with a good dose of cinnamon and nutmeg. Just enough stout flavors for balance.

Pours very dark brown, almost jet black. Smells like chocolate milk at first, then the habanero spice shows up. Taste starts with cinnamon and nutmeg, and ends with a habanero aftertaste. Mouthfeel is light. Overall, a nice complex beer. Warms the mouth, however, doesn't make you sweat.

Tons of spice. The amount of spice would benefit from a bigger malt bill

Pours dark brown with a mocha colored head. Head dissipates quickly leaving a ring of tan foam along the outside of the beer. Beer appears a bit thin when poured.

Smell has a very strong aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg - lovely spice on the nose. There is also a lactose aroma - like sweet milk - that comes through. Not much heat is detectable through the nose. The coffee only really comes through as the beer warms up.

Taste is extremely Taste up front is Chocolate, lactose, roasted malts and spice. Then all the sudden you are punched in the throat with the cinnamon and habenero spice. Lingering spice stays in your throat well after the sip is done. Mellow roasted malts and chocolate not eh back end before that spice is all you are left with. The beer is heavy on cinnamon and habanero. If you don't like spice, you won't like this one. Touch of coffee is noted as the beer warms up.

Feel is thin, medium carbonation, smooth.

Overall its an interesting stout - certainly its quite spicy, and if you like heat, you'll love it, but if not, pass on this one.

This beer was very dark with no head on top. The smell was a very sweet Chocolate and vanilla. The taste blows you away. Can taste the chocolate along with peppers. It's a very hot Stout.
