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!

75cl bottle, shared with friends. Bottled a week ago, so definitely incredible to get this that fresh in Europe. Pours black with a nice tan head, looks very good. Aromas of chocolate, caramel and some chilli is already detected. Very complex flavour: coffee, chocolate, vanilla sweetness...all backed up by the habanero peppers, without hiding any other flavour. Pleasantly warm and slightly bitter on the palate. Full body, good carbonation. Exquisite, nothing more, nothing less.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3796) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 8, 2015
On tap at A la Biere. Deep black with a thick tan head.  Mexican cake is chili and cinnamon intertwined on a bed of rich chocolate. Prickly spicy heat this shit is good but for me a small dose is enough.

The aroma is full of cocoa nibs, vanilla, cinnamon and coffee. The color is pitch black. The taste is full of cocoa nibs, vanilla, cinnamon, coffee and chilies. The finish is long and strong because of the habanero. My tongue is burning. Nice beer!

Bottle via "little" Matt, shared with Lubiere. Dark brown with a dark mocha creamy head. Roasted chocolate malt, cinnamon, lactose, light vanilla, some vegetable and light heat peppers (which build towards a nicely balanced heat finish), agave, some oak, full body and mild carbonation, smooth and nicely balanced throughout, enjoyable and delicious.

ABT_S54 (322) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2015 650ml bottle served in a snifter. Pours thick and black with a dark tan head with good head retention for a IS of this strength. Aroma is woody, dirty (in a good way) with a promise of the sweetness to come. Taste is powerful chocolate (both milk and dark), woody and an almost tequila-like quality that gives the dirty taste promised by the aroma. Chilli is really pronounced here - I have had a few IS that have promised chili heat that have not even registered on the (scoville) scale. Heat is present in the aftertaste really quite strongly and as the mouthfeel is so luxuriously viscous the sweet residue on your lips begins to glow after a while. Cannot fault this beer really. I would imagine the bourbon/double barrel would be my perfect beer.
