Beer has maple, vanilla, and key ingredient cinnamon. Has a strong smell of cinnamon, but I personally thought it added well to the profile as I like more spice in my beer. Chocholate and maple are ever-present. Overall, pretty boozy taste, so I'd recommend letting it mellow for a couple months before drinking.

Black with a moderate mocha foam settling to a thin raised ring.

Smell is very intensely spicy of freshly grated cinnamon to the point that it actually seems like it has some hot chili peppers in it. It comes damn near to smelling like a chipotle-forward Dark Lord de Muerte. As it warms, it develops a softly faint, slightly redeeming chocolate-marshmallow aroma.

Taste veers off from that intimidating nose, with a more brown sugary and dusty cinnamon combo up front, as smooth chocolate malt makes up the middle, before a finish that features dark char and mapled date and prune. The slick oily body finishes with a slight semi-dry sting, as a vanilla rum character comes out on the exhale, and it sweetens as it warms.
