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!

thewolf (10792) - Kolding, - JAN 31, 2013
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph. Pours opaque black with a giant, creamy, beige head. Aroma has sweet chocolate, cocoa, nuts, light peppery. Medium to high carbonation, fine creamy and dry mouthfeel. Flavour has lovely luscious chocolate, vanilla, light oaky, good mild but sharp chili burn. Extremely well-balanced. And not too sweet.

Svart öl med ett mörkchoklad färgat skum. Doft: Kakao, kaffe, grön paprika, choklad kaka. Smak: Kakao, chili, stekt chili korv, malt, hallon. Trevlig, men bara själv tar habaneron över. Tillsammans med en trevlig choklad efterrätt blir det mycket bättre.

Prufrockstar (693) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 20, 2014
Catching up - 22 oz bottle shared by Ryan - thanks! Pours opaque dark brown with a thick mocha head. Aroma: cinnamon, milky chocolate, a hint of chili spice. In the mouth: Sweetness up front gives way to chili heat at the end; throw in as well a dose of chocolate and some nice roast bitterness. Full body, smooth creamy texture ... really nice. Overall: sort of an imperial milk stout with chili and cinnamon. As it warmed more and went on, though, a little vegetal, garbage stuff started to enter into the aroma, which gives a slight hit to the overall/aroma. Minus that, though, an excellent beer.

Krjukoff (7) - SWEDEN - APR 17, 2014 does not count
I love the colour of it and I liked how the pepper taste took a while to notice. But when it struck, it took over the whole taste.

calm_dreamer (140) - GREECE - APR 16, 2014
Black medium body, a small brown foam head. The nose catchea the lot of it. Dark chocolate, vanilla, cinamon, pepper oil, some coffee, a note of burbon and maybe a hint of alcohol. The pepper taste covers the others that are balanced in an excellent way. The burning stays on the tonsils for ages. A bit high carbonation. Oh. My. God.

Flaska. En syrlig barley vine doft. Underbar smak av cacao vanilj o chili. Ligger fint i munnen o sedan kommer chilin. En trevlig glidaröl att sitta o njuta av.

ekstedt (5217) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 11, 2014
Bottle (bomber) from Systembolaget. Black with beige head and some ugly brown floaters. Chocolatey and spicy aroma with some bisquity gingerbread notes. Medium bodied, the floaters disturbing slightly. Semi dry, medium bitterness, some spicy hotness lingering.

Tsekouratos (116) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - APR 4, 2014
650 ml bottle shared with calm_dreamer. Black color with a thick brown head. Aromas of coffee, vanilla, cinnamon, peppers, bourbon and some alcohol notes. Taste was pretty much the same with peppers dominating everything. Aftertaste is very long and hot, my taste buds were on fire. Medium bodied with medium carbonation.

mverity (254) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 2, 2014
2013 bottle from Hop City in Atlanta. Pours a pitch black with milk chocolate head that held pretty well. Medium collar and fair lacing. Aroma is deeply roasted malt, slight spice, slight vanilla. Taste has a warmth from the habenero, very dark earthy-sweet malt, slight vanilla. Rich body and mouthfeel, low carbonation.

markextrae (691) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 29, 2014
shared bottle thanks a lot to Cunningham!! poured pitch black with a nice not to long lasting mocha tanned head. roasted malts, vanilla, dark chocolate, a lot of spiced peppers, ash, faint dark fruits. first off you got a great smooth mouthfill with sweet chocolate combined with the vanilla, but shortly after it the pepper kicks in. wich ruins the aftertaste. this could be such a awesome beer if they should use a bit less pepper. but still a great beer!

pilsnerrogge (2414) - Finspång, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2014
Eye: Black with a small head.
Nose: Chocolate, vanilla and chili.
Mouth: Dry with growing chili heat.
Tongue: Dark chocolate, ash and lots of chili.
Brain:Not exactly balanced, but quite fun. Should perhaps come in smaller bottles.
