4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle. Pours a near black color with a thin dark tan head. Aroma of dark roasted malt, chocolate, molasses, tobacco, and a hint of chili pepper. Flavor is just awesome with the chocolate and especially the chili really come through as it warms. Visually very enticing as well as the beer leaves a viscous tan sheen skinny the side of the glass as you swirl it around. Glad I finally got to try this local treasure. It did not disappoint!

2011 bottle that I have no idea when I got in a trade. This is definitely a big, bold imperial stout. Slick and oily mouthfeel adds to the overall effect. Really cool looking pour, jet black but with some ruby red highlights as it thins. Almost no hint of the 11 ABV. I really didn’t get much from the chilies but that might have been due to the age. Tasty.

2013 bottle courtesy of Armin. Pours a dark brown...near black, but the light exposes some copper hues. Smell is robust. Caramel, vanilla, tobacco, dark chocolate and faint chili peppers. Taste is loaded with chocolate, roasted nuts, vanilla sweetness, tobacco, spices and faint peppers. Very well balanced. Very nice and oily mouthfeel, slightly sticky. So very well done. Love this beer!

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
2012- bomber. Pours dark thick and viscous. First taste is smooth but full of complex flavor. As it warms more subtle notes of the chillies. I'd love a tad more vanilla but for the abv it's incredibly well balanced. Much better than the 2011 bottle I had previously.

Poured from a 2013 bottle. Color is an opaque black with a thin dark head. There was a slight ruby tinge to the head, but barely noticeable. Aroma is chocolate, cinnamon, and spices. Taste was a complex and well balanced. Definitely one of my favorites.

Bottle thanks to Sparky! Pour deep black. Aroma is peppers, roasted coffee, sweet chocolate and spices. Taste is vanilla, peppers, spices, roasted coffee - this keeps changing with every sip. This bottle was aged and this beer is best fresh.
