12oz can. No date.
1" tan head on a pitch black imperial stout. Short retention - fades to a ring quickly.
First impression is a rich nose of chocolate, cinnamon, and wood. More intense rich wood aroma comes alive after 20 minutes in the glass.
Vanilla, chocolate fudge, thick roasted malt, chocolate, spicy cinnamon, and a late chili spice that adds to the booze warming effect. Everything that's advertised in the beer is present and accounted for in the flavor. Extremely well done.
Full body, silky mouthfeel, low carbonation. Long flavorful, roasty and boozy finish. Very well balanced and incredibly easy (too easy most likely) at 13% abv.
Outstanding.

Big black shiny body with a tall beige-brown head of 2 fingers.

Smell is just gorgeous. Freshly dusted fresh churro and red hots. Light fudge.

Flavor is orgasmic. The heat and bourbon come forward first with lots of cinnamon. What follows is churros covered in hot fudge, sprinkled with red hots, and more rich bourbon. Again, eyes-roll-back good.

Feel is slick, hot, slightly thinned out but the creaminess brings it back up to par.

Overall, this beer is just nuts. Insanely good, and a Prairie BOMB!/Christmas BOMB competitor if i EVER saw one. This is hardcore world class. Virtually impossible to find. $36/Growler, but worth it. Phenomenal beer.
