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!

Leighton (14705) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2013
Sampled at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013 - Day 2, Session 2. Pours oily black with a dark, brown cream head. Rich dark chocolate aroma with notes of decadent chocolate cake, too. Big sweet flavor, moderately roasty, with lightly charred malts and mellow earthy bitterness. Full bodied with fine carbonation and chewy texture. Sugary dark malts to finish with mild alcohol warmth and delicious chocolate cake. Indulgent and outrageously good.

Svart med brunt gräddigt skum. Mycket chockladtoner. En hel del chili, kryddig. Och ja kaffe så klart.

Thanks to Lukaduke for sharing this bottle! Pours dark brown-black with 1 finger of creamy tan foam. Nose is chocolate, coffee and spicy notes provide a hint of what’s to come. Mouthfeel is creamy, rich, smooth, so easy drinking for an imperial stout. Taste is bitter roasty chocolate and cream up front, warm spices, cinnamon. Finish is roasty bitterness that transitions into a nice heat which lasts but doesn’t overwhelm. Delicious, interesting, and fun to drink!

22 ounce bottle shared among 5. Dark chocolate aroma, minor amount of vanilla and espresso. Black color, little foam, no visible carbonation. The taste had a very distinctive front and back end: front is all creamy chocolate cake with vanilla notes, back is a kick of hot pepper spice. Very clear layers of flavor arrive in waves. Medium bodied, very smooth. Overall a very pleasant dessert beer.

lusikka (7594) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 26, 2013
650 ml bottle. Pours a pitch black colour with a beige head. Aroma of rich roasted malts, vanilla, biscuit, baking powder and mudcake. Rich flavour of roasted malts, grassy bitterness, mudcake, some mild tart fruitiness, raisins and chocolate. Habanero warms nicely after building up a while. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and a long, warming, roasty and stinging finish. Great.

Mtbiker54 (29) - Nancy, FRANCE - OCT 24, 2013
Une belle couleur brune très foncée. Au nez une légère odeur de piment et une forte touche chocolatée. En bouche, piment et vanille sont au rendez-vous. Des notes chocolatées arrondissent le tout.

FESTIVAL. Black body, medium sized khaki head, spotty lacing. Chocolate, roast, vanilla, peppers, cinnamon, caramel, brown sugar. Medium to full bodied, appropriate carbonation, lingering finish. Lived up to the hype.
