Talk about cinnamon. This ones like candy and cinnamon all in one. I'd drink it again, but the cinnamon spice was a bit too overwhelming for my personal taste. Regardless an awesome stout. Definitely a good option for a bottle sharing.

Look- Like a black goddess standing on the other side of the bar giving you the look.

Smell- Whiskey really compliments the cocoa, cinnamon and vanilla like the Bridal Party at a Wedding.

Taste- A whirlwind of delightfulness that would make your toes tap.

Feel- Like a magic carpet ride with Aladdin.

Overall- Would love to thank the 20 people who brought this to Tampa Bay Beer Week 2014. Drank it so much and never could get enough. Good people.

Had b2 at almost exactly a year old, wish the peppers had still been there but it was a very good beer. Cinnamon, vanilla, and chocolate still very present, barrel was a bit strong for my liking.
