Pretty good spiced up imperial stout. Maybe a bit too spiced up for my taste, but for what it is, it is great. Tons of cinnamon. Cocoa, chocolate, vanilla and chili presence as well. Some booze on the nose. The cinnamon pressence makes it taste pretty much like an apple cake.

Sample from bottle, shared with X random people in the Cantillon Blbr 2016 line in Copenhagen. :-) Pours a jet black body with a large creamy beige head. Nose is vanilla, cocoa, chocolate, coffee, cinnamon and hints of caramel, toffee and mild herbal notes. Taste is dark chocolate, caramel, toffee, cocoa, vanilla, cinnamon and hints of clove, chili, deep malts, biscuits and dark syrup. Full body, medium to soft carbonation. A real "new school" sipper, saturated with cocoa/vanilla and spices. Pleasant and enjoyable, although not quite in my range of blissful flavors. Solid stuff though.

AWISLguy (2652) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 17, 2016
On tap at The Lodge on Hilton Head. Black pour with a brown head leaving quite a bit of lacing. Aroma has big chocolate, cinnamon, light chiles. Taste is of sweet caramel, cocoa, cinnamon, some tangy chiles, some bakers chocolate. Quite smooth and the blend is terrific - the sweetness of the caramel, cocoa and cinnamon with the tangy of the chiles and cinnamon, and the bitterness of the chocolate really supplied a lot of differences. Full bodied with some alcohol presence. Finishes fairly sweet, with some tanginess. Excellent! 16.7

Black color. Cacao aromas, vanilla, cinnamon, caramel. Taste is sweet from the vanilla, but the habanero makes itself known quickly and dominates for the remainder of the tasting. The habanero makes it a bit unbalanced, lingering burn during the finish. Cool Imperial Stout.

Bottle from Michael (misterburd) -- cheers, buddy! Even from just watching it pour I could see that this was going to be one slick beer. Its got a truly incredible mouthfeel -- its chewy and very, very thick, but it manages to not be sweet at all. The habaneros start subtle, allowing chocolate to dominate, but after about 10 seconds theres a great light spiciness that finishes everything off. This is so legit.

snoworsummer (4971) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 12, 2016
From a bottle. Pours very dark brown with a thick, brown head. Tastes like chocolate, cinnamon, smooth booze, pepper, and woody malt. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like rich chocolate, cinnamon, creamy, boozy, pepper, and woody malt.
