2018 release. Released about a month ago.

A: Pours an inky, dull black with a smattering of dark brown, RIS-like head. No lacing or much retention to speak of.

S: Cinnamon, dark chocolate, red chili, austere oak, vanilla, light roast, anise, dried plum, and a nominal amount of maple and bourbon.

T: Cinnamon, maple syrup, dark melted chocolate, alongside light bourbon and vanilla bean, finishing with a lingering medium-light heat from the chilis (not hot, but plenty enough to let you know it’s there). Moderate sweetness brings things together but fatigues the palate over the course of a pint.

M: Medium-full body, slightly sticky, with medium carbonation. Mild alcohol warmth.

O: Tasty and well-constructed beer, but the maple and bourbon are not that noticeable.

This beer is outstanding. Pours dark black with a thin tan head. Smells of light bourbon with strong maple. Nice sweet upfront maple with a wonderful chili finish. It is warm on the palate but not too much. Fabulous beer
