Very nice imperial stout with chocolate from beginning to end. Vanilla is a definite flavor but no chili pepper taste, just a slight resinous-spicy hot finish at the back of the throat. Almost oil-black with a tan head. Fantabox

mambossa (326) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - FEB 11, 2017
Unrelenting black pour, dark wet-sand head that dissipates furiously to a small ring and smooth, soft patterns on the surface. Aroma, foremost, of Mexican chocolate. Brown sugar, pepper skin, milk chocolate. A unifying treacle fudge underneath. Coffee presents itself as roasty and floral at the same time. Bit of minerality and herbaceousness. Overall, turbinado sugar, coffee, and pepper skin riding on a brick of fudge. The first sip. The peppers provide a nice tingle of heat, surprisingly, overtop a beautifully oily body consisting of a non-cloying fudge, bright espresso, gently sweet. The flavor glides through the center of the palate as opposed to sticking to the cheeks. Very fun beer. Nose is so lovely, texture is great. I typically hate spicy beers, but this one has the pepper bite balanced on the head of a pin. Not spicy, but just a tingle. I can appreciate that restraint and precision!

Sorry gents but this is just not my style. I know a lot of people go for this but the thick molasses like texture and syrupy feel is something I find off putting. People talk about the coffee or espresso flavor but Ive had many many better coffee porters or cocoa stouts, in fact I think Ive only had one worse than this and that was past its used by date. Shared a bottle of this with 3 other people and all of us struggled to even finish a quarter glass.

From tap at Bootleggers. Lovely black color with a nice off white head. Aroma is massive of chocolate and some coffee, very nice. There is very little bitterness, and the taste is again dominated by chocolate and coffee and a smidgen of vanilla. Creamy and very nice to drink!

ketchepillar (1194) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - FEB 10, 2017
Bottle. At first it seemed really syrupy and not good, but it just need to warm a smidge. Still very thick, and kinda syrupy, but mostly in a good way. A little heat at the very end is nice. Velvety vanilla is very nice.

BlackBeerPG (463) - Darien, Illinois, USA - FEB 7, 2017
Taste: Complex mix of chili, coffee, semi sweet vanilla, cacao nibs and dry finish. Coffee and Vanilla bean aroma. Black/Brown, mostly opaque, soft tan head with nice lace. Full body with some alcohol kick to it.

Anova167 (354) - Manhattan Beach, California, USA - JAN 28, 2017
Inky black pour. Thick like motor oil. Huge coffee aroma with chocolate and toasty. Initial blend of chocolate and vanilla, coffee. Just enough chili bite to round it off. Finish is sweet and boozy. Thick mouthfeel coats your throat.

ulrikolsen (562) - DENMARK - JAN 21, 2017
Tap. Pours black with tan head. Aroma has dark malts in complexity, coffee, vanilla, chocolate and slightly sweet. Taste is semi-sweet malty with roasted notes, coffee, vanilla, chocolate and sweetness yet balanced. Finish is balanced malty and lightly dry with lasting notes of chocolate and coffee.

beerbill (3615) - Laurel, New York, USA - JAN 20, 2017
12 oz bottle at Daves tasting. Pours just about black with a light brown head. Aroma of wet paper, vanilla, coffee and cocoa. The wet paper is in the flavor profile as well but is less prevalent than in the aroma. Vanilla, coffee, and cocoa present as well. Coffee lingers in the aftertaste. Mild coffee bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied.
