COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our sessionable take on the mole-inspired imperial stout style. The creamy confluence of milk chocolate & vanilla is dusted in cinnamon spice & finished with a sweet & mildly smoky hint of ancho chili pepper. Brewed with lactose milk sugar, vanilla beans, cacao nibs, ancho chilis & cinnamon. It’s an awesome brew for the holiday season (if we do say so ourselves).

Draft sample at the Brewery The sweet stout poured a deep black with a spiced sweet aroma and taste. There was coffee and burnt malt in the experience. It was just too sweet for me. The stout had light body and soft carbonation. Sweet finish . This was my least favorite beer for this brewery.

Keg @ Bluejacket. Deep brown with a tight tan head. Sweet vanilla cream aroma. Definite lactose. Some dark roast coffee, ash. The flavor’s really similar to vanilla noir. Coffee creamer, toasted nuts, dark chocolate. Slight bitterness in the finish. Oily body, pretty active carbonation. I liked this. Not over the top.

This all comes together very well. I like the light chilli notes in here, blends well with cacao and vanilla, the latter shines especially prominently. Bitter and spicy finish. Pours black without much head or lacing on cask. Thick consistency. Tap at brewpub.

On draft. Fantastic aroma of espresso, chocolate and red chiles. Flavors of cocoa, coffee, vegetable stock and peppers. Beautifully done - a lot of depth for 5.5%!

A mediocre version of a style I usually appreciate. Slick and black. Deep and sweet, with an unfortunate aftertaste.

[ Tap ][ Bluejacket ][ 12oz ][ Snifter ][ Free ][ 2/13/14 ]
>> Thanks Griff for the share. Inky black pour, medium foam. Big tootsie roll, apple in the nose. Taste is nice sweeter milk chocolate, chai spices. Very nice. Not bitter or too sweet. For abv, it is stellar and quite the feat. Wife would love it. Wish the nose were a bit better and the ancho chili heat picked up a notch. Still, was loved by our group.
