COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Happy birthday to us! To celebrate our first year as a brewery we brewed a serious imperial stout and aged it on cocoa nibs, vanilla beans, cinnamon sticks, and fresh habanero peppers. This is the first offering in our annual Anniversary series. Here’s to many more!

Pitch black with tan medium head. At first it hit me with fresh banana (unweizen one, just raw fruit), as it warmed up it opened up to lots of vanilla, cinnamon, gingerbread, chocolate, cocoa, prunes, dark cherries, coffee. It leaves long chocolate & vanilla aftertaste. Basically you can write a book about this beer. It’s softly carbonated with smooth, creamy and almost milkshake-like texture with big, bold boddy.

Lore (2169) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 10, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2016 tasted as one of the masterpieces of the best beer tating event I’ve ever attended (many thanks for both the beers and the company, Kapusil and Cristobal37!); Dark brown colour, minimal dense dark brown head; aroma of plum and sour cherry jam, chocolate and vanilla; taste of chocolate, sour cherry, rum vanilla and minimal chilli

0.66l bottle courtesy of Lore. Black body, light brown head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, sour cherry, pepper and vanilla. Taste of chocolate, caramel, vanilla, plums, sour cherry, rum and floral hops. Medium to full body with creamy texture. Nice one.

SlovakSniper (5074) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 8, 2016
Noire comme une Mexicaine dans une nuit mexicaine. Nez épicé comme une Mexicaine qui mange un taco. Intéressant sans être renversant. Les saveurs sont celles d’une Mexicaine qui frenche une autre Mexicaine. Liquide sexy comme peut l’être une Mexicaine légèrement trop maquillée. Finale olé olé. La fiesta dans mon verre et dans mes shorts.

Stoned99 (1237) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 8, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2016 22.05.2014 bottle shared with SlovakSniper. Aroma: cigarette ashes, roasted malt, licorice, mexican spices. App: pitch black, small to minimal frothy brown head, ok retention, great lacing. Taste and palate: full body, liquoreux, light sweetness, strong alcohol and spicy burning finish. Overall: good but far from great. Might be because it’s too old but wasn’t really impressed. Didn’t enjoy that much the nose, taste isn’t that much better, just by a tad. Mouthfeel is good though. Focus is a lot on the alcohol and spices. Would be happy to drink this in Mexico.

PabloZab (1138) - Wroclaw, POLAND - SEP 6, 2016
Tap (Targowa, Wroclaw). Almost black with small, brown head. Aroma is intensive with chocolate note, vanilla and alcohol hints, very nice. Mega chocolate, bit roasty with small notes of noble alcohol like bourbon. Beer with quite high bitterness and with very nice sweet aftertaste. Really good and drinkable if we take the power of the beer.

Pours black oily color, clear, with one finger creamy brown head, which immediately transforms itself to a big ring around the glass. Aroma: intense roasted and dark malt aroma, with notes of refined dark chocolate, mokke, espresso, cacao nibs, smooth refined vanilla and cinnamon powder, with gentle note of chillies. On the second half steps forward notes which reminds on port wine, boubon, supported with notes of leather, oak....flavor: intense note of malts, which takes on roasted, dark chocolate, espresso coffee, vanilla, cinnamon, cacao nibs, leather, tobacco, port wine, bourbon, with gentle burnt of chilli, which steps forward on second half, perfectly balanced with dark chocolate. Finish is slightly dry, bitter, with long lasting roasted malts sourisness and at the same time chocolate swetness in aftertaste. Alcohol is noticeable, but not in a disturbing way, body is full, texture silky smooth, carbonation is low. As Alengrin wrote: world-class imperial stout.
