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!

Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is coffee, earthyness and chocolate. Taste is coffee, chocolate, plum with a nice kick off habanero in the back of the throat. Excellent beer and worth the hefty price tag.

Piwo czarne. Piana drobnopęcherzykowa, szybko znika. W aromacie wyraźna czekolada. Ponadto kawa, karmel, zioowość. W smaku podobnie dodatkowo wanikia. Ostrawy leciutki posmak. Bardzo fajny stout.

Pours black with a tanned head. Aroma; chocolate, coffee, caramel, cinnamon and habanero pepper. The taste is awesome and consists of coffee, chocolate, vanilla a touch of cinnamon and a presence of habanero pepper all the way without hiding the other flavours. This stout is amazing!

22oz bottle pours a thick black color without much head. The spices come through strongly but balance well together. A mild habanero bite at the end.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2015 Bottle. Pours black, thick, with great beige head. Aroma of fine dark chocolate, roastiness, cinammmon, dried fruits and of course habanero. In taste semi dry with roastiness, chocolate flavours, dried fruits and rather strong spiciness which mellows in the aftertaste. Full bodied, nice bitterness in the finish. Really great.

This beer had great flavor mouthfeel but the habanero peppers just made it finish a bit too hot for me. Would love it with less pepper heat.

Love it! Outstanding aroma, after opening gives impressive glimpse of cocoa, coffee, bit later transfers into Latvian sweet version of pumpernickel cake somewhat between tiramisu and brownie, perfect cinnamon accent, vanilla and ofc very pleasant hard roast background with nice twist of chili. At first chili gives quite harsh kick, but afterwards its getting more subtle, warming and perfectly blends into bouquet of this awesome brew. Moderate sweetness with moderate bitterness. What can I say.. perfect aroma - I could sniff that all day long, awesome taste and palate, great balance.. Love it

Alusmamuts (1156) - LATVIA - AUG 26, 2015
Dark brown with small light brown head. Honey cake aroma. Honey cake taste followed by coffee bitterness in finished with lasting pepper spiceness in the throat.

SinH4 (1388) - Garching, GERMANY - AUG 26, 2015
Black color with great beige-brown head. Aroma is chili, dark chocolate, cinnamon, coffee. Taste is dark chocolate, cinnamon, coffee, great and intense chili kick, but I think it fits. Hot and spicy aftertaste. A very very spicy Imperial Stout. Thick mouthfeel. Great stuff.
