COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

A touch on the boozy side, though the flavors underneath are pretty solid. Your typical beer attempting to be BA Hunahpu and falling quite short; good enough to drink, but off enough to remind you that nobody does it quite like Wayne.

Served on tap at griffon gastropub. Dark black color with a brown head. Sweet bourbon aroma. Strong bourbon flavor with a slice kick at the end. Heavy body. Very good but intense. Lot of bourbon and alcohol. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not a fan of whiskey, but must try some of these as barrel aging is so en vogue. CS can be a bit of a crap-shoot, but they have some great brews. This one pours with a darkness and thin skim of mocha foam. Aroma thankfully has nice rich notes of cocoa and roast amid the obvious booze. Flavor is similar, with more of the whiskey coming through, but still yielding some room for chocolate and vanilla. My favorite aspect of this is by far the incredibly smooth mouthfeel and mild, clean finish. Quality brew for sure. If only I could enjoy whiskey...

The beer pours very dark brown with a dense tan head. The aroma has sweet roast, vanilla, chocolate, bourbon and oak. It has a full smooth body that’s velvety and had light gentle carbonation. It starts with milk chocolate, oak, bourbon, rich roast and some berries. The finish has cocoa nibs and mild astringency. Excellent imperial stout.

Bottle shared by a friend. Pours darkest brown with a thick beige head. Aroma of cinnamon, chocolate and bourbon. Malty and chocolatey flavor with cinnamon and chili pepper before a boozy finish.

Aroma chocolate, coffee, vanilla, woody, Appearance black, tan foam, Taste medium sweetness, heavy sweetness, Palate medium body, thin feel, Overall a very smooth barrel aged beer. It is a little on the thin side for me. The heat from the chillies is slight but after I stopped drinking I would feel some heat on my tongue. I would suggest this beer to a friend.

From a 22 oz bottle shared at home. Pours a clear cola with a tan head. Aroma of dusty cocoa. Favors of chocolate and chili with big bourbon notes. Very nice blending of some strong flavors. Smooth, bitter roast finish.
