Our third anniversary beer up-sizes Chocolate Sombrero, using extra ancho chile and adding chipotle pepper. We aged the brew 100% in Wild Turkey and Heaven Hill bourbon barrels. May it leap onto your palate majestically, like a luchador who flies into the ring from atop the highest rope.

22oz bottle opens with a small gush and pours oily brown-black with a small finger of tan head. Nose is soft bourbon spice, very faint pepper heat on the long inhale, sweet chocolate syrup. Taste is earthy chocolate, hershey syrup, sweet vanilla, mild pepper flavor, spice, compost. Finish shows more pepper presence and heat than on the palate, french vanilla coffee, chocolate, cheap bourbon. All the pieces are there but they never really come together harmoniously and it leaves this beer feeling a bit disjointed and rough around the edges.

Pours black with small head. Smell is bourbon, vanilla, chocolate. Taste is pretty sweet, chocolatey roasty malt, bourbon, a hint of oak, and very light alcohol, but no peppers at least at first. Full, syrupy rich mouthfeel with nice soft carbonation. This is a very tasty BA Imperial stout but its all bourbon, no chile and the booze was just a hint too prominent.

Profundo color obscuro con cabeza avellana, notas profundas a chocolate, cafe, vainilla con un toque a Chile sutil, en boca grandes notas de bourbon con chocolate y cafe, alcohol presente, pero con balance, cuerpo robusto... Deliciosa

Shared bomber poured to snifters, showing a ruby highlighted, black/brown color, with deep, brownish tan head foam, and when the spotty lacing subsided, still a leggy coating on the glass. The nose was roasted, sweet, cocoa, lurking alcohol, and some subtle spice that seemed to be the extent of the ancho & chipotle influence throughout. Full bodied, with low carbonation, syrupy texture that wasnít overly sweet, and a bourbony finish. Nice dessert brew!

BottleZ. Pours black with white head. Aroma is spice, cinnamon, dont get barrel or vanilla. Taste is surprisngly light, peppery. Again no barrel or vanilla. Decent beer, just missing some of the aspects.

bottleshare thanks to Beechner224. Nose is slightly spicey with lots of chocolate. Pours a dark black with minimal head. Pepper is slightly muted but the most prominent of the spices. Cinnamon is there but slightly muted as well. Not much barrel character. Pretty good but just kinda lacking.

DrewFace (967) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUN 6, 2014
Bottle share thanks to beechner224. Big chocolately malt aroma, some light sweet lactose like character, peppers come through as it sits. Demise sweet, chocolate malt, grainy, light peppery notes, fairly smooth and not overpowering pepper. Lots of boost and barrel character.

Bottle. Pours black with a medium sized foamy head that fades to a nice ring. Aromas are bourbon, brown sugar, vanilla, cocoa, and light smokey peppers. Tastes a little too bourbon forward but thereís some nice vanilla and cocoa. Smokey peppers and pepper heat only show in the finish and itís pretty light. Nice brown sugar sweetness throughout. Medium to thick body. Very creamy mouthfeel. Good BA stout.

A wee desert beer this one. Big sweetness over all followed by a dominant aroma and flavour from the barrell which works really well with just the hint of cinimon coming through. Missed the chilli and peppers though.
