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!

An imperial stout with peppers, but in a balanced way, instead of some overpowering hotness. Smooth taste of pepper, vanilla and roasted cacao and coffee. Very good.

Defreni (3005) - Husum, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2014
Fad: På CBC. Kulsort med et fint mokkafarvet skumhoved. God duft af vanilie og kakao. Habaneroen viser sig først meget sent i eftersmagen men varmer så munden godt op. Fungerer upåklageligt. God øl.

Sampled @ Zeebra 2014. Spicy beer, pepper. Nice. Bitter. Also hints of vanilla and bourbon. Really well-balanced beer.

Bottled 7/3/13
Pitch black color with creamy brown head, persistent. Roasted malt aroma, very dusty, ashes too; too much cigarette and ashtray. Full bodied, round mouthfeel, moderately sweet; it has flavor of roasted malt and some dark chocolate, strong tobacco feeling, cigars; but cigarette butts too; hints of vanilla and chili pepper. The final is muddy.
Rare mess; it’s one more example of "throw everything in" without grace or art.

Sampled at Boise’s Imperial Stout get together, over 120 bottles to choose from. Going with the flow on this rating.

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 (1994) - Cincinnati, Ohio, 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.

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.
