Bottle from Whole Foods PM. Pours hazy black with tan head. Nose was roasty dark malt, oaky bourbon, cacao, molasses, vanilla, pepper. The flavor had more hot pepper flavor, nice vanilla, oak, cacao, molasses, spice. Very well hidden alcohol. IrishBoy (4228) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAR 25, 2017
12 oz bottle from Ratman! Nose is vanilla, chocolate,with light amounts of bourbon, wood and chilies. Black with a small lightly lacing cinnamon tan head. Flavor is moderately sweet dark chocolate, vanilla, and a nice light amount of pepperiness that gently licks your tongue. Excellent! Thanks for the bottle Don.

Roasted malt aroma with some slight spice from the chillies. Taste is a slight sweet roasted malt, very full flavored stout, with mild chillie spice, and a vanilla bourbon finish. Fantastic balance. The chili spice is perfect in this beer. Some beers it is too much and burns the throat. This adds some slight heat without overpowering the stout. Brilliant balance. Alcohol is very masked. Such a good imperial stout.

Bottle courtesy cwsample. Pours black, opaque. Tan head. Aroma is very rich. Malt and molasses, bourbon, wood, vanilla, dark fruit. Super complex. Flavor is rich as well. Roasted grain, bourbon and dark chocolate. A distinct pepper heat can be felt on the finish. The alcohol level also provides some heat. Full bodied. Very nice. Would age well.

Aroma is molasses, dark ripe fruit, and a tiny pepper. Punch of chilis, but not the spice, just the flavor. Tobacco, vanilla, red velvet cake, and booze. Lots of booze. Bottle. ajnepple (6990) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 30, 2016
12 oz single bottle from the Craft Beer Cellar - Fort Collins. Black appearance with a small, lingering brown head and light lacing. Enticing aroma of chile peppers, chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon, oak and a hint of bourbon. Similar flavor, medium sweetness and medium to heavy spiciness that lingers to the finish. The alcohol is hidden well at this ABV. Full body with average carbonation and a thick, coating mouth feel. Complex and pretty fun to drink overall.

Bottle from Avery. Dark brown pour. Aroma is dark roast, chilies, cinnamon. Medium to slick palate, full flavored. Vanilla comes out. Lots of big elements in this, but balanced beautifully. Awesome.
