Fantastic! A 2016 bottle drinking in Dec '17. Still has strong cinnamon and chocolate flavors up front. A hint of spice (maybe fallen off since fresh?) Thinner than Abraxas. I have to taste both back to back to see what I like more now. One of my new favorites! I hope I can track down a BA version somehow.

The beer comes in a oily black color with a brown film coating the inside of the glass during the swirl.

The flavor offers a medium base of cinnamon, onto smokey and earthy pepper flavor. With a theme of molasses, chewy roasted malts, an intense mouth coating viscosity, rounding sweet vanilla, a bitterness of cocoa nib onto dark chocolate,

Pours very dark brown/black. Light brown head. Head won't stick around long but good carbonation and head will return with every whisk/agitation thrown at it. Smells mostly of cinnamon with a hint of choco. Taste: cinnamon, followed by minimal heat from peppers and alchohol. Feel and consistency a little thinner than Abraxas. Overall taste and price combined a very good non BA stout.

Black pour, ample medium brown foam. Retention and lacing are very good. Great looking beer. The aroma is big cinnamon and hot pepper. Notes of vanilla, chocolate. Taste is very good, but doesn't quite match the nose. Cinnamon and chocolate flavors are most prominent. Strong notes of vanilla as well. Spice from the peppers is faint. Cinnamon is a little too prevalent, mutes some of the other flavors. Medium-full body, moderate carbonation, and a dry finish. Very nice brew, glad I got to try it!

22oz brown bomber, sample from the brewery.

Thin tan lacing stays, deep crude oil black color. Smells of cinnamon, chocolate, chili peppers, dark fruit, coffee, burnt toast, & molasses. Sweet and semi-syrupy, mild molasses with a spicy kick from the chili peppers and cinnamon. Chocolate and coffee married with a dark fruit ester in the middle. Spicy sweet finish. Very much a dessert beer, sweetness was expected here. Enjoyable.
