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!

Minderbinder (2595) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 19, 2013
Bottle 22oz. Pours black with low brown head. Some lacing. Aroma is of roasted malt, coffee, sugar. Taste is of pepers, roasted malt, chocolate, "hotness". Palate: Full bodied. Overall: Too much pepper. Very hot. Not to the point of being ridiculous, but not too far either. ’Muricans...

Bottle (22 oz). Thanks Tom for this one! Reddish dark brown with a small dark brown head and some lacing. Aroma if of green peppers, cinnamon, chilis, vanilla, cocoa and mineral notes. Taste is moderately sweet and quite hot (chilis) with cinnamon, vanilla, cocoa and alcohol. Full bodied. Moderate carbonation. Dry and hot. Complex. Lack of balance. Too hot for my liking.

Art (2253) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 16, 2013
Bottle thanks to icehawk. Pours an extremely dark brown, almost black. Not much of a head at all. Aroma of mostly chocolate and alcohol. The taste is quite different. Maybe a slight cinnamon taste, very little vanilla and then the medium burn of habanero pepper. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Very good but I give the nod to Huna.

dnstone (2364) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Deep chocolate brown color with a bit of tan head. Roasted cocoa aroma. Definitive chocolate (cake) character and creamy with roast undertones and a touch of spice and heat in the finish. Really well balanced and rich...the flavors really linger well.

JBoan (176) - Arizona, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Bottle. Pours deep black with good mocha head. This beer smells amazing! Smell is big chocolate cake, coffee, roasted malts, spices, some fruit and faint peppers. Taste is roasted coffee, chocolate cake, brown sugar and the finish is spicy peppers. After the 3-5 sips the pepper really shines in this beer. Creative beer that is a must try.

Lukaduke (2686) - Gray, Maine, USA - SEP 8, 2013
This beer is absolutely delicious ! Smells like a spicy chocolate cake taste like a spicy chocolate cake and all the flavors you want to be there are there and in perfect balance. Big chocolate cake, dark bitter cocoa, chili spice, warm cinnamon, boozy vanilla...round full mouthfeel, thick chewy... fucking right this beer does it for me !

Palme (3603) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 3, 2013
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. It’s as good as pitch black in the glass this one and it has a small sidesticking quite good looking deep dark chocolate top. Strong and intense chocolate on the nose here! Some port and wood, dark fruits and roasted malts. Even a trace of licorice. It’s somewhat sweet at first, but it has a soft acidic touch that cuts all the sweetness. Really really heavy roasted as well. The sweetness can perhaps be a bit to much in the long run, but as a sipper in a small glass this is really really good. Marzipan and nuts in the finish and aftertaste. Light mouthdrying also. Flavorbomb? 04.05.2013

What a combo. The bite of pepper is perfect. Sweet bite. Very nice tang. Incredible. Lasting head. Nice malt. Darkness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tasting at Kevin’s. Chocolate. Roast. Coffee. Big beer if not big body to the stout. Slight chili at end. Sticky.

Bottle shared by Taylor at Beer Study. Thanks for opening this, buddy. Nose is cocoa, light spice, cinnamon, pepper heat. Flavor is similar, lots of dark chocolate, peppers are integrated well. No green pepper grossness. This was a nice surprise as I wasn’t sure what I’d think about this one.
