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!

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Bottle shared with a bunch of folks. Pours a dark brown with aroma of chocolate. Couldn’t really smell the pepper. Nice and smooth chocolate flavor on the palate with a hint of pepper on the back end.

Boutip (5680) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 23, 2016
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a nice large brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of black chocolate notes with roasted malt is pretty nice. Taste is a nice mix of roasted malt and black chocolate with some residual sugar notes, some cinnamon notes and some spicy peppers notes which really only become noticeable in the aftertaste. Body is quite full with nice creamy notes and good carbonation. Solid imperial stout thought spicy notes becomes a bit too much for my liking.

tomer (2733) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - MAY 19, 2016
At a tasting, many thanks, no head, treacly thick pour, opaque black color, cakey malty flavor with chocolate coca and a hint of something burned, chocolate flavor with toasted bread cinamon some earthiness and a lingering mellow habanero spiciness, extremely mellow and beautifully balanced. Excellent sipping stout.

willisread (2015) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 5, 2016
2014 bottle shared at MechaGodzilla. Big roasted cacao nib nose with vanilla and cinnamon notes all over the nose. As it warms a slight bit of prune comes out but the spices are the stars and pair with the cacao well. This is sweet on the palate, but not overly so like so many in the style. More vanilla as it warms, but the cacao stays at the forefront. Slight spicy cayenne pepper finish but reigned in and matches perfectly. 2 years aged has definitely toned the sweetness down. Loving it!

Zeswaft (1590) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - APR 27, 2016
Bomber. A good and overwhelming imperial stout thats low on soy sauce. I think the one thing that sticks out a little is the spiciness from the pepper. Very minimal bit certainly adds to the complexity.

CBC 2013 maybe from a bottle someone brought in. Pours black with an off-white head. Quite sweet with a light bitterness. Malty aromas of chocolate with hints of toffee and rye. Also aromas of dates and hints of pepper. Full bodied. Medium carbonation. Dry finish.

Bottle 0,65 with Slacker. Pours black with large brown head. Aroma of cocoa, vanilla, roasted malts, black berries, wood. Taste is dark chocolate, cinnamon, vanilla, malts, pepper. Nice sweet flavor balanced out by a mild burn from the habanero peppers. Full body and oily texture with soft carbonation. Excellent acquaintance.

angel77 (2163) - oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 17, 2016
Botella 66 cl tomada en el momento en Cimmeria 11..03..2016. (r506). Color negro intenso con espuma beige oscuro. Aromas y sabores maltosos tostados con buena dosis de cacaos y algunas vainillas. Toque final picante seco algo terroso bastante bueno y duradero. Cuerpo medio con buena sensación alcohólica desde el principio. Bastante buena. Para repetir sin duda.
