2014 vintage; drank 11/6/14 @ Harvest Hop Haus.

Bottle #112 of 586.

Poured from the bottle into a glass.

Brown/black hue.

No head; no lace.

Coffee, cognac & mild pepper heat in the nose.

Medium thick mouthfeel.

Heat daggers on the tongue immediately give way to kiwi juice tartness. Sweet heat settles on the lips over time. Unique & delicious.

i thought the mouthfeel was on point with this one. great for the style. picked up enough barrel and a nice kick from the pepper. good balance with the sweetness, chocolate, vanilla with the pepper on the back end. nice beer, glad i was able to snag a bottle.

Opened one of two of the 666 bottles that I was able to acquire about 3 months after the 2015 summer release. $35 a bottle is a hard bargain but it definitely delivered some unexpected flavors. So spicy that it almost felt like pop rocks on your tongue as you drank it. Peppers were the only flavors that I was picking up the most. Maybe age will help cool down my last bottle. Enjoy if you were able to snag one.
