Pours a very dark brown with a tan, sticky head. Great lacing. Aroma is malt and chocolate. Taste is malt, chocolate, some alcohol, and a tiny bit of the chile heat. Not getting any vanilla on this one. Pretty good flavor.

22oz bottle, thanks to Casey B. Bottled 3/2012. Shared with DanielCoor. Very dark brown color, near black. Thin light head. Dots and splotches of lace. Surprisingly good bitter roast malt and dark chocolate aroma. Some cinnamon, light spice. Good bigger malt profile, nice stronger bitter taste to it, light sweet. Chewier, bigger body. Lighter, more crisp carbonation. Very light stickiness in the finish. Light spicy, sweet alcohol bite to the taste, but still nice. Interesting, big mexican imperial stout. I enjoy the spiced, herbal twist. Just a bit too sweet, right now. Initially, it’s very interesting and tasty, but it gets a bit cloying sweet and 1-dimensional after more sips. Slight cinnamon aftertaste remains enjoyable the whole way through, though

22 oz bomber. It pours a deep mahogany color with a nice thick tan head. The aroma is very rich and chocolaty with some hints of green chili pepper and maybe some cinnamon. The flavor has more rich chocolate maltiness with some sweet fruitiness… maybe some plum or raisin. Not getting any heat or vanilla. Some chili flavor. Very rich and thick on the palate. It has a pleasing roasted/chocolate maltiness. Fruitier as it warms. Very tasty and satisfying, but it could be a bit more aggressive to be truly awesome.

Bottle: The aroma consists of chocolate, cinnamon buns, light chili peppers, and a touch of vanilla. It pours a dark brown with some faint orange highlights. It has a small beige head that quickly fades to a thin film. There is some thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate dark chocolate with a touch of caramel. The finish has light-moderate roast, light cinnamon, a touch of chili peppers., and minimal vanilla. It’s medium-full bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel.

Smooth, silky with slight chocolate tones. Nice hit of molasses comes through a bit sickly but not to bad.

Pours a beautiful black beer with a good tan head. Smells a lot like coffee and dark chocolate. Tastes a bit roasted, coffee and dark chocolate. Bit vanilla. Medium body, sticky texture and a good average carbo. Good one!

Mooi zwarte kleur met een volle bruine schuimkraag. Ruikt naar mout en toast, koffie, chocolade. Smaakt chocolade, roasted en iets vanille. Iets brandende nasmaak. Lekker bier.

The perfect amount of chocolate. Doesn’t overdo the chilis. Smooth, strong and not so bitter. Wish it had a bigger head. That’s what she said.
