Well, I finally get to cross this off the list.

Keg, snifter, 2015

I wanted this to be awesome but it's just really damn good. Not awesome though. Apparently it's been a lot better in the past, with more chili presence, which is definitely missing in a big way here. There's plenty of cinnamon all over, and chocolate is big, but where are the peppers?

As it stands now it's a really good beer but it didn't live up to the hype. I've had plenty of bomb and I'd take that over this all day. Sorry perennial.
