Pours a pitch black coloration with a large, creamy head. Smell is dominated by roasted malt and chocolate, with just a hint of cinnamon coming through. Taste follows the nose, being dominated by roasted malt, chocolate and cinnamon. Vanilla is very faint and chilis are sadly almost undetectable. Finishes with a light, dry bitterness and just a little bit more chili coming through in the aftertaste. Medium body with smooth mouthfeel. While the balance could certainly be better, this is still a pretty enjoyable, chocolate-forward stout with a nice mouthfeel and slight hints of spice.

Moderate pour yields a one inch tan head over a very dark brown body with some nice lacing. Nose of roasted malts, chocolate, cinnamon, and spice. No vanilla until tasting this. Additional flavors include milk chocolate, cinnamon, spice, and vanilla. Nice feel and overall, a pleasant experience. Cheers!
