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!

Good beer. I can really do without the pepper heat, but that’s really kind of the point here. Everything worked well together.

Chocolate and vanilla nose. Dark black color, not much foam or lacing. Chocolate flavor, turns roasty almost ashy, then the habanero kicks in. Residual heat in the mouth. Unfortunately this gives the beer a gimmicky feel. There are good elements here but they aren’t particularly well integrated.

2103 Vintage, pours black with a small tan head. Quite thin body, not very oily. Nose is great, chocolate, vanilla, spicy. Taste is a bit spicy for me, never been a huge fan of this style, but this one is well done!

Bottle. Thanks Ernesto!! Pours big thick black with perfect cola head, big frothy. Big spiced coco and ash aroma. Taste is thick sweet spiced chocolate tons of roasted cigar. Would love this in some rum barrels.

Bottle shared @ EricTeusink’s - I had what one would say is high expectations/excitement before trying this beer and I was wowed. Pours pitch black with minimal beige head. Here we go. Aroma was sweetness, coffee, a bit lactose, cocoa powder, chocolate, vanilla. Flavor is the standout winner here. Smooth coffee, vanilla, the peppers come thru in the end and lightly linger for a bit. Damn, damn good.

Nate (3806) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2013
On tap at The Lodge. Nice rich chocolate and coffee nose. Toffee, nutty, with some molasses, mild vanilla, and sugar. Dark black opaque with thin lacing brown head. Thick body with medium carbonation. Starts sweet, malty with lots of cocoa, coffee, molasses, and vanilla. Bitter finish with warming. Nice sweet lingering after with mild bitterness.
