Pours black with a creamy mocha head. The nose on this beer really blew me away, lots of bourbon, vanilla, roasted grain, coconut. The taste was very similar roasted grain, vanilla, cinnamon, bourbon, big sweet coconut (think macaroons) with that nice chili warmth on the finish. Big body with good carbonation for a rich, smooth mouthfeel and the alcohol was well hidden. Really fantstic!

Insane nose, awesome barrel notes and complexity. get great cinnamon/churro aromas and taste. Could sip on this beast all day. dry finish and peppers galore. Only knock is the dry-heat filled finish but this is one to enjoy and let warm up. Flavor is on point - one that could be analyzed for a long while, not a plain stout by any means.

Black with a frothy tan head. Good retention for a high abv stout.

Very aromatic. Chocolate, vanilla, oak, coffee. Also has some earthy and cinnamon notes.

It was bottled in August of 2014 but stored well at cellar temps. The barrel components seem to have dialed down a little. Woody and vanilla, but not boozy. Lots of fudge and coffee. Mild heat from the peppers in the back end, but I was expecting more. Cinnamon spice as well.

Very smooth and soft body.

Great beer, but I was hoping for more flavor and heat from the habs.
