Appearance: pours a walnut color just short of black. a finger of tan head with weak retention. opaque due to the darkness but lets some light through the very edges.

Smell: peppers, cinnamon and chocolate to mocha.

Taste: opens with spicy peppers, some cinnamon filters in. mocha and chocolate. notes of espresso but with a bit of smoothness from vanilla. some booze and ends with a bit more pepper

Mouthfeel: heavy , strong carbonation and some heat from the peppers.

Overall: strong spices and could be more chocolatey. If your into spiced beers go for it but I prefer more malt character

Can't believe the ratings on this beer. It's a very average stout. Far from perfect. Yet again deceived by the hype.
