Hanoi (897) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2016
Bottle. Nose is a little muted; milk chocolate, vanilla, hint of cherry, spice, and a little chilli tickle.Taste is sweet malt, leading to chocolate, a sweet chilli spice, vanilla, coffee ice-cream, a little fruitiness, hint of licorice, and a pleasing spice. Mouthfeel is oily and maybe a little thin for an imperial stout. I think this is a good imperial stout, but I particularly liked how the spice is used, and particularly the pepper to stop the beer becoming cloying and oversweet.

PugUglyBrewer (327) - - OCT 29, 2016
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. On the appearance the color is black with a think brown head that fizzes out quick. The aroma is cocoa, coffee and a tickling of chili pepper. The taste is deliciously complex with a cocoa base that blends smooth vanilla with subtle cinnamon spice and chili heat.

cwill (78) - Coatesville, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2016
Jet black pour with a thin head and plenty of lacing. Faint aromas of chocolate and some spice. Taste far exceeds the smell. Chocolate, roasted malts with hints of cinnamon, vanilla and peppers with a bitter sweet finish. Full bodied mouth full with little carbonation. Very nice imperial stout, right up there with Brooklyn chocolate stout

Antzrhere (127) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2016
Pours dark redish brown with beige head. Decent carbonation. Not much aroma, some sweet notes but hard to pick up. Taste is chili, vanilla, candy chocolate, roast. End taste is bitter sweet. A little lacking in body and not sure the Mexican style works well here, but hides the ABV well.

Andrew196 (1625) - Katy, Texas, USA - SEP 23, 2016
Bottle to glass - dark, dark, tan head, quickly vanishes. Aroma of chatted oak, chocolate and some booze. Full and creamy, heavy on chocolate and vanilla, well masked ABV, very flavorful, spicy notes.

likeatrainwreck (521) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2016
Black pour with a fizzy tan head that sinks away quickly. Quite thin bodied. Nice tingle from the chilli, some vanilla, roasted malts... sweet. Really drinkable and quite light for the ABV. I really enjoyed this.

12 oz bottle. Bottled on 06/16/16. (Meijer) Kalamazoo, MI.
Oh, I didnt realize this was 9% Imperial Stout... I thought this was a 5% sweet stout with chocolate. Lets see. Dark reddish brown... almost black color with a small tan head. Roasted malt and spices... the spices are dominating... and probably ruining this for me. Ill give it a chance. The flavor is roasted malt, alcohol, mild chili, spices and chocolate. The spices aint ruining this. Thats nice. Not the best, not the worst.

tricksta_p (3922) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - SEP 4, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is roasted malt, vanilla, chocolate, mild chili, cocoa, dark fruits, prunes, plenty of liquorice in the finish, touch of roasty coffee and soy sauce. Flavour is medium sweet and light to moderate bitter with some chili burn in the throat. Flavour is medium to full. A bit heavier on the liquorice than Id expected. Not top tier Imperial Stout but good, nice vanilla chocolate and subtle chili notes.
