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!

(bottle - 22 oz) Dark black pour with a thick tan head. Aroma is a big and really nice mixture of chocolate, dark chocolate, cinnamon and peppery spice. Flavor is an interesting mix of dark chocolate, sugary sweetness, habanero spice and spicy cinnamon. Nine times out of ten, this may not work, but it worked extremely well. Almost had a spicy hot fudge taste to it. Big fan.

Coconut vanilla peppers Cinnamon fruity pepper woody woah. Bits of raisin touch of smoke. Piquant finish. I want to drink more to keep the spice but want to slow down to enjoy. Very full aroma. Round feel slight creaminess. Yes!

Vestergaard (268) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle thanks to Motherbrother. Pours pitch black with reddish edge. A small, short lasting brown head. Aroma has HUGE, dark chocolate, cinnamon, wood, lots of vanilla. Taste is fairly dry, tho the chocolate is very creamy. Slight leather, strong heat in the end. Chili fruit, espresso. Fairly thin body (don’t get me wrong), average to medium high carb. Really nice and hot!

2013 bottle. I know it’s not supposed to be aged, but that’s the best I could score in a trade. Despite being a year old this was still superb. Pours a deep black, small head, light lacing. Aroma of chocolate, pepper, and vanilla. Taste was chocolate, light cinnamon, and peppers hit in the back of the throat. Body was full and oily with a deep lightly hot finish to it. I’d love to try a fresh one from this year to compare.

This tastes like good frosting, chocolate and peppers. That’s actually a good thing, as strange as that may sound. Best stout I’ve ever had.

Drought. Very dark brown with creamy chocolate colored large head, permeating spirit aroma mixed with cocoa, medium carbonation, bitter cocoa taste laced with strong alcohol, long finish with alcohol and habanero aftertaste. Very interesting brew with strong alcohol overtones.
