Pours black slick oil like with thick mocha colored head that clings to the glass.

Aroma TONS of cinnamon, chocolate, vanilla and spices.

Flavor is just amazing, rich lots of cinnamon, vanilla, peppers and chocolate.

Feel - Thick full bodied and creamy nice amount of heat.

Overall - This is the perfect stout I cannot think of one thing I would change.

Looks absolutely beautiful in the glass. Very dark with some sexy dark brown head that settles quickly. Smell is dominated by cinnamon with a bit of chocolate and pepper spice in the background. The taste heavy on the cinnamon spice, yet somewhat balanced. You get some chocolate as well as some creamy vanilla on the finish. The peppers are there in the background but there's not too much heat to it. I kind of wish it had a bit more of a spicy kick to be honest. Feel is pretty thick overall, a little oily and coats the tongue. Carbonation is on the plus side of average. Overall, this is probably the best tasting "spiced" stout that I have had to date, much better than Huna for sure. Definitely a must try!
