Pours a thick black opaque color with a one finger tan, creamy foam head. Smells are heavily of chocolate and vanilla. The carbonation is relatively light though it's a pretty full bodied beer. The tastes are of vanilla, chocolate, cinnamon, and some coffee and there is a peppery and spicy aftertaste.
Overall, this is an interesting, unique and pleasant drinking experience and uncomparable to anything I've ever had. This blows the Stone Smoked Porter with Chipotle Peppers out of water. It is a much more balanced beer that has a less smoky taste to it and focuses more on the contrast between the sweetness of the vanilla, the bitterness of chocolate and the spiciness of the habaneros.
The beer has been hyped up by lots of liquor stores, as well as on the Twitterverse and craft beer blog world. I can see why everyone has been going crazy about it but I still prefer many imperial stouts over this one. However it really is unlike anything I've had before, and for that, I commend Westbrook for their ingenuity.
