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!

This spicy treat immediately became one of my favorite beers as soon as I had my first sip. I wish I could have this beer all the time.

65cl bottle shared by Kaaz - thanks. Pours black with an off-white head. Aroma of roasted malt with dark chocolate, dark fruits and chili. Well balanced and delicious. Excellent stuff and pleasant chili sting. (2014-02-15 - Halden)

Bottle at the Triad bottle share at Foothills organized by Mike. Really nice dark chocolate and churro nose. Flavor is clean of dark chocolate, cocoa powder, and a subtle linger red pepper spice. The sensation from the peppers lasts forever without leaving an obnoxious pepper flavor on the palate. Really nicely done!

gEUS (1713) - Linden, BELGIUM - FEB 25, 2014
Bottle - bedankt dennoman. I like the character of the roasted malts and the vanilla aroma... but the chilli burn is just tooooo much. Not quite baalnced as the Hunahpu’s. Aftertaste is non-existing because of the overload of heat.

tony_gorilla (159) - Drammen, NORWAY - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle from systembolaget enjoyed at home. Pours thick black with a smal light brown head. Taste is coffee, chocolate, vanilla and chilli. Cool it down and some liqorice turns up.

Neeskens (328) - SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2014
Nice looking beer, pitch black with dark brown head. Very rich in both nose and mouth, a bottle last for hours. Really stands out among its peers through a massive chocolate and chili finish. The heat from the chili is very apparent but still blend in nicely with the other flavors.

skullgeorge (70) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - FEB 19, 2014
Bottle at the Hoppy Pub, Thessaloniki - Pours really black with a beige,brown head. Aroma in the start is sweet chocolate and cacao, but when it gets warmer you can notice vanilla and oak wood. The taste is so good, with dark chocolate and coffe in the start and spicy from the peppers in the end. Oak wood, and vanilla is also present in the taste. Bitter aftertaste that lasts... Really nice one

fletchfighters (1399) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 19, 2014
Batch 1 Ink black pour, light tan head. A bit too much carbonation but looks good. Nose is chocolate, dry chocolate, lots of chocolate, vanilla, caramel and cinnamon. Good nose. Smells very desert like. dry chocolate, sweet chocolate, caramel, vanilla and cinnamon. Good roast notes to this. Low carbonation, big, dry feel with hints of the chillies in the finish. Radical good beer

Fantastic. Chocolate on the front with just enough spice in the back. Great color and consistency. A perfect stout in my mind.
