A notch below the best "Mexican Hot Chocolate" type of beers. But this is still very good. I do get a bit of the nutmeg which adds an interesting dimension. More cinnamon on the nose at first but some comes out in the taste as it warms. The pepper is just hot enough where you get some burn on the back end.

Opaque brown beer with a tan, dense head. The aroma is cocoa, cinnamon, nutmeg and a bit of peppers. There is an almost woody component in the aroma. Sweet malt, some dark fruits and a bit of nutmeg up front with cinnamon and a great pepper heat at the end. The nice spice of the pepper goes well with the chocolate and nutmeg. A tad thin for a stout but otherwise a nice beer.

Pitch black body with a 1/2 finger of head, receding to a ring shortly after.

Very first whiff yielded nothing, but as i inhale deeper, I get the cornucopia of nutmeg, coffee, vanilla, and cinnamon. It's really awesome if a touch faint.

Flavor is by and large peppery cinnamon coffee. The heat comes on the back end, very much like red hots due to the cinnamon (rather than the jalapenos). Second sip brings more vanilla and nutmeg. Very much a cinnamon-coffee bomb.

Feel is watery, lightly carbonated, with a slight heat and roastiness. The heat never gets overwhelming.

Overall, this is a really interesting stout, I've not had anything like it (apart from the Barrel Aged version). The cinnamon and heat are what stands out, and if you like cinnamon in your coffee and a little tabasco with your breakfast in the morning, you'll definitely find this up your alley. The cinnamon/red hots thing is what keeps me sipping this; I could go without everything else.

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.
