Very nice imperial stout with chocolate from beginning to end. Vanilla is a definite flavor but no chili pepper taste, just a slight resinous-spicy hot finish at the back of the throat. Almost oil-black with a tan head.

Pours a motor oil black with a medium thick head and decent retention. Big aromas of dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, wood, caramel, toffee, (no alcohol noticed). Oh, did I mention chocolate! The flavors are a BOMB!!!!!!! Big wood, chocolate, caramel, toffee, vanilla coffee, earth, nutty, and WOW!!!! Highly sweet, I’m talking HIGHLY atomic. Drank on the first day of my family reunion in Friona Texas 7/21/16. Light smoky finish. Not much of it is that cloying. The alcohol is very well hidden with the volume of malt and other ingredients. Impressive.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2016 1 - 1.5yr old bottle. Pours black as night with a thin, tan head that fades to a ring. Aroma has great notes of smooth coffee, caramel, toffee, slight spice and nut shells, smoke, dark chocolate, and dark fruits. Taste is a touch on the bitter side with bitter sweet chocolate, caramel, coffee, toffee, vanilla, spice, and a warming heat in the throat at the end. Medium-full body with a low-medium carbonation. Medium oily the mouth. Overall very balanced. Vanilla, coffee, roasted malts, chocolate, and a whiff of warm chili at the end.
