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!

Draft. Nose is like chocolate cake batter; literally I think I can smell the flour. Pours a pitch black with small brown head. Taste is initially chocolate with a slight sweetness. Then a slight heat starts to kick in. Very subtle and more if an afterthought. It does continue to build but is really complimentary. This draft is way more tame than the bottle I had about a year ago. Still spicy but way more in balance. I could drink many of these. And I shall.

Helt svart farge med tynt lys brunt skum. Lukter kaffe, sjokolade, kirsebær og krydder. Lukter også alkohol. Smaker kaffe, frukt og mørk sjokolade. Smak av mokkabønner:-). I Ettersmaken kommer chillismaken veldig. God spennende imperial stout.

Svart med brunt skum som forsvinner fort. Espresso, mørk sjokolade og mørke frukter, brødeig og nøttelukt. Mørk sjokolade, mørke frukter før chillien kommer som ei bombe på slutten.

An imperial stout with peppers, but in a balanced way, instead of some overpowering hotness. Smooth taste of pepper, vanilla and roasted cacao and coffee. Very good.
