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!

spacecube (1369) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2015
Keg, pours black, small tan head, lovely viscous full body, chocolate, vanilla and chili pepper, just the right amount of spice to balance the malts and the hop. Finish is light bitter, creamy, yet dry. Soft carbonation.

Faut arrêter vos bêtises les enfants ! Donc ici, une attaque cacaotée somptueuse sur fonds de cannelle et de fruits confits. Bien, nous sommes donc effectivement dans le gâteau. Puis vient le tour du piment et c’est là que tout se gâte ( Pourtant dieu sait que j’aime le piment et que j’en mets partout dans ma cuisine ... ) dont la chaleur ne vient pas soutenir les arômes mais les éteindre ( comme une fille trop fardée ... ). Tout d’un coup, il n’y a plus que ça. Le pire est à venir puisque le piment s’épuise alors dans des notes poivrées ( Pourtant dieu sait que j’aime le poivre et que j’en mets partout dans ma cuisine ... ). Ou est passé le fruité du piment ??? On est ici très loin de la maîtrise d’autres brasseries. Bien fraîche, les symptômes sont moins présents, mais pour une imperial stout ce n’est pas adapté. Une bière intrigante donc mais surcotée !

Bomber. Aww hell yeah. Dark rich pour with a brown head. The pepper heat is perfect in its character - additive without being too hot. Rich and delicious. Yummy.

nihtila (1823) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 18, 2015
Keg at Brewdog Edinburgh. Pours black with tiny brown head. Nose is spices, cake, vanilla and cinnamon, lots of. Taste is still vanilla, cinnamon and cake but more heat of chili and intense toasted malts. Not the most common IS but not overly seasoned.

Alexanderdahl (101) - DENMARK - JUL 18, 2015
Pours pitch black, with mocha head and curtains as fat and juicy as rosie o’donnel! Lots of vanilla in the nose along with a spiced cinnamon aroma. So much cake! HOOOOOLY SHIT, CHINGA TU MADRE MARIA JESUS! Wholebodied smoothness, overwhelming you with sweet vanilla and working your taste buds with heating chili. Maaaaaybe a little too spicy, leaving little room for the other spices. The cinnamon really works for the impression of liquid cake! Chocolaty and extreme in every way! Probably my favorite this year! Low carbonation and smooth, but with a nice tingly sensation on the tongue instead.

marcinatas (1) - Warszawa, POLAND - JUL 17, 2015 does not count
G?ste, oleiste niczym czekoladowy fondant rozp?ywa si? w ustach, pozostawiaj?c na podniebieniu ostry posmak chilli. Po pierwszym ?yku wyczuwalne nuty wanilii, karmelu, gorzkiej czekolady i lukrecji.
