4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Taps opaque dark chocolate brown with a thin but serviceable light tan head. Aroma presents roast malt, smoky, molasses and mocha tones. Got me going Pavlov! Delightful flavor delivers roast malt, coffee, pepper, smoky, coffee and cocoa tones. Pepper is just enough to get your attention without making your palate feel in need of the fire department. Mouthfeel features firm body and good fizz, while finish has peppery, roast malt and mocha tones. Maybe this is what dragonís milk really tastes like--

Bottle from flandersned-thanks, Steve! Dark brown, much thinner than I remember the regular being. Nose has some earthy, dried chiles that carry through in flavors, along with some darker malts and light chocolate. Very light heat.

Black pour, fingers worth of head. Dark chocolate and chili aroma with slighter whisky notes. Barrel more prominent in taste, chili becomes more prevalent as it warms. Fuller body. Smooth

Draft. Poured black hue with an average frothy tan head that lasted with good lacing. Aroma was a heavy toasted sweet malt, coffee and roasted chilies aroma. Medium to heavy body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy complex toasted malt, vanilla and warm flavor and a medium to heavy complex sweet & hot finish of moderate to long duration. Solid brew.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 2015 vintage. Chocolate aroma with notes of chiles, vanilla and bourbon. Pours black with a thin light brown head with decent retention and lacing. Starts with sweet chocolate flavors with a decent heat from the chiles as well as a little bit of earthiness from them as well. Finishes smooth with some vanilla and bourbon but is overpowered quickly but the heat of the chiles that lingers on the palate long after the sip. Pretty good, but the bourbon gets overwhelmed quickly but the chile flavors.

Draft at Dutchís. Pours a deep cloudy brown with a small tan head that forms a ring and laces the glass. Lots of chile pepper in here, with cocoa, coconut, molasses, earth, oak, vanilla, and mild roast. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a spicy, but smooth and sweet mouthfeel. Good chile imperial stout.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black pour with a thin light tan head. Lovely dark cocoa nose with roast and sweet chocolate and a gentle bit of chile. And a kiss of bourbon and oak on the aroma. Big smooth flavor with roast, dark cocoa, light roasted chile, gentle Oaked bourbon, and a dry roasty and peppery finish. More sweet and roasty and bourbonny than peppery.
