COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imperial Stout brewed with Coffee, Cocoa Nibs, Vanilla Beans, Chili Peppers, Sea Salt and Oak.

Every great city has its wild side, and in 19th century San Francisco, that was the Barbary Coast. From this chaotic cauldron emerged San Francisco’s vibrant jazz culture and a rich legacy of poets, artists, writers, and entertainers. Inspired by this creative tradition, this decadent imperial stout was brewed with oak staves, sea salt, a hint of spicy chili, Dandelion Chocolate’s cacao nibs and Sightglass Coffee. Pair with rich chocolate cake and a flair for adventure!

From notes. Had this one at the 2018 Brew Crew Bash at Benny’s house on August 12. 16 oz can. The pour is a nice darker black with a good thin cap of khaki colored head and a couple spots of lace as it falls down. The aroma is pretty good. There is a nice coffee roast and a very dry chocolate. There is a bit of booze, but it works pretty well. The flavor definitely falls apart. This is super hoppy and alcohol forward. There is a light chocolate and coffee backing it up, but it’s an American stout mess. The mouth feel is medium bodied and softly carbonated with a strong alcohol on the back end and a very dry roasty chocolate and hop. This is a strange mixture, but I don’t like the American aspect to it. 7 4 6 4 14

Can. Black pour. Aroma has mocha coffee, milk chocolate, caramel and soft chili. Taste has smooth milk chocolate, soft spicey earthy chili, mocha coffee, earthy vanilla and a nice subtle chili afterburn. Really balanced and tasty.

Braudog (6803) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUL 30, 2017
Can. Thick, oily pour. The tan head dies quickly. The aroma and flavors are both just chock full of milky chocolate. It’s even milkier and sweeter on the tongue. I can get some vanilla and sugar, but am afraid to say I don’t get any java. Good stuff though. (#6724, 7/30/2017)
