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!

Pours black with at tanned head. Smell of cinnamon, dark malts, chocolate, cocoa, vanilla, a pletora of spices, amazingly complex. Heavy sweet, spicy, alot of chili punch, more cinnamon, more chocolate, more vanilla, dark malts. Alot of flavors that blends well. Maybe to a Mexican cake? Moderate bitter. Overall this an exquisite experience. World class beer

MiP (15172) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2015
Bottle, 10.5%. Vanilla aroma. Black colour. Very small off-white head. The flavour is spicy and fruity with some vanilla and cinnamon and a nicely warming chili note. It burns a little but it is not painful or anything.

martin00sr (2485) - Haderslev, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2015
Black with small beige film. Coffee, chocolate and chili aroma. Choc and coffee flavour but then the chili takes over, resistance is futile... barely balanced. Every sip starts fruity and chocolaty but ends hot every time. Hhmmmm...

Nevalainen (520) - FINLAND - OCT 30, 2015
Black color with no head. Aroma of coffee, vanilla and toffee. Taste is sweet at first turning into spicy/ chili finish, but it’s not too much, you just get the feeling of the chili. Nice mixture of sweet and chili. A good one.

Bamsen78 (4912) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2015
Bottle @ Rowdy Rebel Revel, Sønderborg. Pours cloudy very dark brown with small but stable dark tan head. Clear aroma of roast, with malty and coffeelike notes and touches of chilli, cinnamon and smoke. Spicy flavour of pepper, with notes of vanilla and roast and coffeelike and malty touches. Spicy and estery aftertaste with powerful chilli notes. Good, but the habanero factor could be less conspicuous, please.

Maakun (3397) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 30, 2015
Bottle at THT thanks to Jeroen. Black with short lasting light brown head. Massive spices, banana bread, chilies, chocolate, old coffee, fudge, very sugary, vanilla, cinnamon, speculaas. Quite sweet with light bitter finish. Full bodied, soft but present carbonation and burning chili finish. Lovely.

nuplastikk (5708) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 29, 2015
22oz bomber shared by Ben. Deep unfiltered brown-black body. Oily beige head. A little more chocolate centered than some of the others we have had today. Cinnamon. Pretty tasty beer. Subtle, lots of flavors linger. Quite nice.

heman (565) - Tychy, POLAND - OCT 26, 2015
Czarne, z piękną, drobną, brązową pianą, która jednak szybko całkowicie zanika. Aromat to bomba w postaci wanilii i kakao,z cynamonowymi niuansami w tle. Do tego kawa, a po ogrzaniu lekka nuta alkoholowa. W smaku piwo jest gęste, oleiste. Słodka czekolada, miesza się z kawą i kakao. Finisz za to jest wyraźnie papryczkowy, chili mocno atakuje kubki smakowei chwilowo dominuje całkowicie posmak. Ostrość jest wysoka, ale według mnie granica tolerancji jeszcze nie została przekroczona. Doskonałe piwo.

Butelka. Barwa czarna z widocznymi przejaśnieniami pod światło. Pian beżowa, drobna, utrzymuje się do końca tworząc bardzo cienką obrączkę. Aromat intensywny, kawy (espresso). Dodatkowo wanilia i kakao. W smaku na pierwszym planie wanilia z kawą. Finisz mocno piekący w postaci papryczek, który zalega na długo i zbyt długo. Wysycenie wysokie, goryczka konkretna. Podsumowując piwo bardzo dobre, pełne, gęste, oleiste ale zalegający ostry smak papryczek zalega za bardzo.

tandembrauer (1059) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 25, 2015
On tap at Whats’s Brewing 2015, Stavanger, Norway. Pours black with very small brown head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, alcohol, cake, cherries, gingerbread. Taste sweet with some fruitiness, some bitter notes in the finish and quite hot. Extremely complex.
