I found this to be a pretty amazing imperial stout. Thanks Dchmela!! I got none of the harshness some of the other raters found. Thick black pour with mocha head. Aromas of cream, malted milk, vanilla, chocolate, berries. Thick sweet and creamy. Cocoa powder, milk chocolate, a touch of pepper and ash, vanilla, strawberries. Passion indeed. Excellent.

Bottle from Homer. Pours opaque black with a large dark brown creamy head that dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is roasty, green pepper, some chili pepper, a bit of coffee. Flavor is light sweet, medium plus bitter, roasty, green peppers, a bit of a chili kick, coffee. Fullish body, a bit hot from ABV. Lingering bitterness. Too much green pepper for me, but not bad otherwise.

Bottle shared thanks to beerman6686. Pours a deep blackish brown with a brown head. Aroma of cocoa powder, smokey bacon, ash. Taste is slightly acrid, ashy, sweet up front with a bitter finish. Pretty similar to expedition. Good stuff but harsher than I usually like.
