Wow. Poured into a snifter at the brewery. Practically no head or lacing, and very little carbonation. The pepper is very subtle, more heat than taste. The chocolate cools the heat very nicely. Coats the mouth, tongue, throat, stomach...who am I kidding, it was a big fuzzy blanket, a hot tub in a snow storm, a hot toddy and a beautiful red head all rolled into one.

I don't rate many beers but this one is just to good not too. Lives up to they hype and comes through on all levels.

Motor oil thick and with a nice balance of spice (I m not a spice guy either). The heat from the bourbon along with the spice warm you up on the way down. Just an amazing beer , definitely should be top 3 on the 250 list.

Read a review once on this site and who ever wrote it nailed it..... Cinnamon Toast Crunch......

Amazing beer well worth the price of admission

2016 vintage

Light tan head. Black in color.

Tons of cinnamon and vanilla. Very little chipotle heat, however. Chocolate and cocoa. Bourbon and oak. Rich and complex.

Typical Perennial BA stout thickness. Very big. A little spice shows in the finish.

This is an amazing beer, but I wish it was spicier. It is incredibly thick and smooth.
