This beer has a beautiful amount of complexity with its ingredients coming out.

The beer has a medium minus spiciness from the peppers. There is a pop of whiskey barrel, which is clearly unlike the smooth qualities of bourbon barrels. Then from mid palate on, there is a big roasted coffee flavor that is familiar of Kopi from Kopi speedway.

The beer is medium plus to full.

An interesting and fun brew.

Bottle opened on 1.3.14

A - Pours a very dark brown with a huge active head that fades quickly.

S - Coffee hits first, then chilies, then finally some bourbon.

T - Taste follows the nose, except more bourbon and chilie heat in the finish.

D - Good carbonationn with a medium to light body.

O - Not sure if the bourbon helped this one. Still a good beer.
