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!

Garbageman (443) - Lexington, South Carolina, USA - JUN 3, 2013
From bomber. Pours deep velvety black with thin tan head. Big rich chocolate and roasted malt with a slight spice. Taste is rich and changes with each taste. The peppers, sweetness and roasted goodness all play nice together.

BlackWarrior (203) - Spartanburg, South Carolina, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Pours black and viscous with a dense foamy tan head that lingered. Plenty of roasred malt, chocolate and some spice. Hint of raisin and black cherry. Smells great. Full bodied and smooth with lt/med carbonation. Some stickiness on the lips. Starts with sweet chocolate and roasted malts and moves to an earthiness briefly before finishing with some sharp pepper heat in the finish. Very unique and well put together stout. Will look for more of this. Bottle brewed May 13, 2013

tdmuel (251) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 30, 2013
Pour is pitch black, maybe the darkest beer I’ve ever seen, with a fluffy brown head. Lots of chocolate and roasted malt notes on the nose, hints of cinnamon, some dark fruits, a little bit of spice, and vanilla and caramel. Wow, amazing taste and it comes with a little burn too. Smooth velvety chocolate, cinnamon, coffee, some caramel, and very subtle chili taste. Full bodied beer, supremely balanced, and with a nice burn going down from the peppers. I’ll have to revisit this one a year or so from now to see how it ages.

mcberko (7074) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 9, 2013
On tap at CBC, pours black with a towering brown head. Aroma of rich chocolate cake, a little spice, and cinnamon. Flavour is extremely decadent, full of rich chocolate cake -- that pretty much describes this. Rich, decadent medium sweetened chocolate. Viscous and full-bodied. Remarkable mouthfeel. Awesome stuff.
