Black pour with good viscosity. Aromas of chili peppers and vanilla. Taste is quite good. Starts with a thick mouthfeel from a classic American impy stout taste. Nice hopping that accentuates the body. It has hints of vanilla in the middle of the taste but ends with a spicy pepper and hop finish. I like this much better than ccb huna

On tap! I don’t really know why I am not rating this even higher - maybe because I imagine that some BA versions could be even tastier. Looks as a stout should look like, aroma has cocoa, milk chocolate and some espresso. taste is thick, very milk chocolaty - that means soft bitterness, loads of cocoa and all of that superbly balanced with alcohol. It is warming, alcohol is there, but does not feel like too much. Need to try some other versions of this also!

Tapped at Stone Brewing second location. Pitch black color. Beige head. Epic aroma of mocha, chocolate, medium Chilli spices, vanilla. Taste is fruity and spicy plus milk chocolate, coconut. Alcohol completely hidden. Tastes like ice cream. Dry chocolate bitter finish. One of the top 3 imperial stouts I have ever had!

emartell (349) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - SEP 18, 2016
Aroma perfecto. Intensidad de notas a café, chocolate, maltas tostadas, vainilla, madera y algo de especias. Completamente negra, corona de espuma abundante de media retencion. Cuerpo redondo. En boca suave y sedosa. Al paladar es perfecta. Compleja, pero a la vez equilibrada. Ningún sabor es dominante ni mucho menos agresivo. Las cantidades adecuadas en los momentos precisos. Una cerveza que disfrutas a cada trago de principio a fin y que a pesar de su potencia alcoholica es muy fácil de beber.

trapped (2245) - New York, TURKEY - SEP 16, 2016
Draught. Inky black with very small frothy beige head, sharp coffee aroma, low carbonation, slightly sweet mocha taste with coconut flavor and alcohol undertones, smooth body long mocha finish. Deliciously satisfying.

Bottle@ home. Aged 18 months. The pours is almost black with a small beige head. Aroma of green chilies, coffee, coffe beans, vanilla in a nice combo with some vinous dark fruits, chocolate, biscuits, tobacco, raisins,, slight toffee and licorice. Palate is incredibly smooth snd oily with a medium to full body and an extensive duration. Taste is sweet with biscuits and molasses upfront. Some coffe and alcohol like bitterness. Flavors also of chilli, chocolate, vanilla, raisins plums. Some lingering alcohol heat, nicely combined with lingering chilli.

Typical impy stout appearance and aroma. Flavor is excellent. Just a perfect amount of chocolate, vanilla, roast, peppers. So balanced. Impressive brew.

Caskalefan (165) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - SEP 4, 2016
The perfect blend of chocolate, vanilla, espresso and just the right touch of chili peppers. Creamy, slightly syrupy body, and an almost endless dry(ish) finish. At one time, I thought this beer was too austerely dry, but now it seems like absolute perfection.

Pours almost black with small brown head. Aroma is vanilla, toffee, coffee, hint of tobacco, liquorice, some chili. Medium sweet, medium to high bitter, wonderful long, salty finish with chili kick. Full body, oily texture, rather high carbonation. Great taste without being too syrupy or sticky, really explodes in the mouth. Fantastic brew.

petewhitley (519) - Nagoya, JAPAN - SEP 3, 2016
coffee, chocolate, vanilla, black, minimal head, medium sweetness, medium body, creamy. Perfect balance of coffee and chocolate in aroma. Nice vanilla notes. Black, almost no head. Solid medium sweetness matched with pepper; brilliant combination. Silky smooth, light bitter finish. I would have never guessed that this carries a 13% a.b.v.; absolutely no indication in taste. Imperials are far from my favorite genre, but this transcends such preferences. Shockingly delicious.
