This beer pours pitch black. Literally looks like oil coming out of the bottle. The habenaro gives it a kick after each sip, but to be honest I think the beer might have been better off without it. The cinnamon and vanilla flavor is delicious. This really does taste like cake albeit a cake with some peppers mixed in

Sweet and spicy at the same time really nice but something you can't drink all the time once in awhile the special occasions

Wish the pepper had been a little more mellow, and the mouth feel a little more full.
