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!

Maakun (2054) - 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 (5255) - 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 (331) - 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.

tomekboniek (319) - Warsaw, POLAND - OCT 26, 2015
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.

DWFAWB; Draft Poured small, black with a bobble frothy and lacing tan head. Nose is moderate to heavy, roasted malt, alchol, coffee, chocolate, vanilla and spice. Taste is moderate sweet and bitter bitter with a lasting roasted, warming, unbalanced, spicy chili tail finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is flat. Spicy cake, indeed.

koleminer20 (1377) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - OCT 11, 2015
22 oz bottle shared with ebone1988. The pour is a jet black, very oily with a dark cap of khaki head that falls to a collar with minimal lacing. The aroma is big on cinnamon. There is a light chili presence and a very light chocolate. It's pretty good, but I was hoping it would be a touch more complex. It's good, but I'd like a touch more. The flavor is good. Cinnamon bomb up front and it rolls through a decent chocolate into a heavy chili-induced spiciness. There isn't any roast that is detectable, and the chocolate is a little lax on the back end. The mouth feel is good and oily, but thinner than I want it to be. The aftertaste is lingeringly chili heat and just a touch of cinnamon. I wanted this to be better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ebone1988 (619) - Taylor, Michigan, USA - OCT 11, 2015
Bottle shared with koleminer20. Aroma is wonderful, cinnamon, chilies, vanilla, chocolate. Appearance is black, thick, with a tan head. Taste is cinnamon forward, tons of chilies, light vanilla and chocolate. Mouthfeel is spicy, has a good carbonation, oily but very spicy. Overall, of the bunch of great cinnamon beers, this one is at the bottom. Still great, but pretty disappointing compared to Hunahpu and Abraxas.
