Poured from a growler. Aroma is moderately strong in chocolate with medium cinnamon, light pepper and medium light vanilla. Some medium light bourbon notes with light oak. A hint of a banana character in the back. Pours black with a medium sized, moderately thick, dark mocha head that slowly recedes to a thin film that lingers on the edges. Medium light lacing and moderate length legs. Flavor is very sweet with a medium dark chocolate note upfront as well as a bit of caramel. Some moderate cinnamon and pepper character mid palate with the spice becoming more prevalent as it lingers. Light vanilla and moderate bourbon notes. Some lingering spice, cinnamon and chocolate syrup. Mouthfeel is very full bodied with medium low carbonation. Low astringency and medium low alcohol warmth, Overall, a nice beer but definitely not my style of beer. A bit of an odd banana note int he aroma. Too sweet and thick with a lot of adjunct character. If you like spiced stouts you will like this.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2015 Draft sample at Hunahpu day 2015. Black. Bourbon vanilla with a ton of cinnamon and smoky malts. Some pepper heat too. Extremely complex. One of the best of the day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

markwise (4786) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 4, 2014
On draft at Cajun Cafe Fall Fest 2014. Pours a nice stout brown with a tan head. Nose is big cinnamon and earthy peppers with some vanilla and chocolate. Flavor is assertively cinnamon and pepper with vanilla, oak, some light spirits. Light to medium in body, tasty as hell, and a great beer hands down.

Brown/black pour with tan head and lace. Aroma is chocolate, chili peppers, cinnamon, and a touch of vanilla. Flavor is sweet chocolate, nice hot chili peppers, spices, and rich roasted malt. Double nice warmth. Medium bodied with smooth carbonation. very nice @bp

jbruner (2940) - Athens, Georgia, USA - APR 24, 2014
Cask sampled at Classic City Brew Fest 2014. Pours an inky thick black with nice ring of tan brown head. Aroma is big on the chocolate and barrel with nice touches of vanilla and spice. Taste follows, decadent and thick, amazing finish of spicy chocolate. Great balance, viscous mouth, light carbonation. Holy hell, this is amazing!

Just the perfect RIS. Complex, creamy, the right amount of spices that complement the base beer. The barrel aging is the perfect finishing touch.

chinchill (2999) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 15, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2015 Brewpub reports "our Cinco de Siberious, Mexican RIS. Its an infusion of cinnamon, vanilla, 2 types of peppers, cocoa nibs and rye barrel aged." Too sweet, a bit harsh (ABV + chilies) and a bit boozy but this big beer is otherwise thoroughly enjoyable. It sure seemed like some coconut had been added to the cask from which I sampled. The aroma suggested a world-class chocolate-coconut candy. O: over the top imperial stout is well worth seeking out.

Sample from a cask at ACAT 2014. Pours black, with a small, bubbly, beige head. Assertive notes of coffee, coconut, vanilla, bourbon, and some chili pepper. Very sweet flavor, with a spicy, warming finish that isnt overbearing, but balances very nicely. Very heavy body, with a creamy, lightly effervescent mouthfeel. This is an outstanding beer. The chipotle treatment is light, and lends a pleasant warmth and flavor, without overwhelming the rest of the beer. Im very impressed.

Holy hell what a beer. Gives BA Hunahpus a serious run for its money. Wow. Black pour, dense reddish brown head. Tons of dark chocolate, peppers, very light smoke, cinnamon, vanilla, the barrel flavors are integrated seamlessly. I was blown away by this beer.

GABF 2013, thanks to daknole for pointing me in the direction of this great beer
Aroma of rich chocolate, roasted coffee, vanilla and green peppers. Flavors of roasted malts, vanilla, rich chocolate, cinnamon and mild pepper heat
This was the best beer I had at GABF this year! Had multiple samples of this.
