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.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

This thing does everything. The aroma doesn't quite stand up to the quality of the rest of the beer. Great great stuff. Love.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught. Black no head. Aroma is light dust cocoa, cinnamon, vanilla, chocolate cake. Flavor is that plus potent pepper spice. The sweetness just peaks through. Feel is intense. sticky & lively but mostly only in the spice and heat. Overrated but still good.

4.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Phenomenal Imperial Stout. Multi-tiered assembly with all advertised flavors standing out on their own. Milk chocolate up front, followed by natural vanilla carried out by the cinnamon. Habanero nips at its heels with just the right amount of kick on the back of the tongue. Three bold flavors in three distinct acts. Bravo.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark pour form the tap. No head, moderate lacing. Aroma is very typical for an imperial stout. Flavor is complex, chocolate, vanilla and in the back of the throat a bit of pepper. An interesting brew.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours black with a bubbly, thick light brown head.
Chocolate, roasted malts in the aroma fresh out of the pour.
Chocolate, cinnamon, a hint of vanilla and roasted malts, finished out with a lingering heat on the swallow. Perfect balance of the peppers.
Thick, mouth coating texture. Perfect stout mouthfeel.
Really good stout. Perfect balance with the peppers, as I feel they must be a tricky ingredient to add. I’ve had beers where the heat from the peppers completely overshadow everything else. This isn’t one of them. Great stout.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Lazy Dog. Pours an opaque dark brown with toffee colored head. Aroma of spices and coffee. Taste is really great, nice coffee and chocolate with a nice layer of spice that joins in later with a dash of vanilla.

Really complex flavors, and the "hit" of habanero spice is not overwhelming. Delicious!
