This mite be the Best imperial stout Ive ever had. This is a chocolate bomb with quite a spice kick at the end. And I love it. The habanero certainly comes thru and doesnt disappoint.

Aarslew (40) - - JAN 14, 2017
Bottle at himmeriget, Copenhagen. Pours pitch black with a small mocca head. Aroma is dark chocolate, cinnamon, vanilla, chocolate ice cream. Taste is sweet and bitter in a really balanced way - chocolatey and desert like. The end has some heat from the habanero. Nice full-bodied mouthfeel.

DocLock (10205) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2017
Shared bomber at Samms. Hazy dark black pour wit tan head. Nose was roasty dark malt, pepper, cacao, vanilla. Tasted like a peppery mole sauce with vanilla notes and cinnamon. Smooth and understatedly heated, like your mother.

neongolden (1327) - Linkping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 27, 2016
(650ml 2016 bottle from boxbeers.dk shared) Pours black with a small dark tan head that fades to a ring with lace. Aroma is quite cinnamon-forward, especially before it breathed a bit, with rich dark malts, dark stewed fruit, light chocolate, somewhat green and spicy habanero, vanilla, rather sweet with moderating bitter/spicy notes. Flavour is dark chocolate and deep, well-balanced roasted malts, spicebox with cinnamon less obvious, vanilla, lightly nutty, with a chili heat that builds a bit into the finish along with a recapitulation of the spices. Semi-sweet at max, with a balanced roast and spice character that leads to a dusty dry aftertaste, not a dessert sugarbomb. Medium-full body, velvety, light carbonation. Nice brew, its quite well-balanced and lets all the additions work in harmony. The only variant Ive had did kick it up a notch over the base, but this is good stuff.

Gramoit (466) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 25, 2016
Beautiful nose, choc, spices (cinnamon) with a very slight chilli finish. What is great about this beer is all the flavours even so subtle work beautifully together. Had it at about 8C but after 30 minutes more of the flavours became more apparent, Absolutely top class.

sjogro (3188) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2016
At home. Bottle shared courtesy of Mrks beershopping budget. Big roasted choco malts, roasted peppers, cinnamon, coconut, marzipan. Big sweet, mild bitter. Full body, soft carbonation. Nice soft velvety and powdery feel. Very nice blend of spices. Mexican christmas in a bottle. Very nice. I want this. Double barrel huna without the subwoofer.

JorisPPattyn (9670) - Ursel, BELGIUM - DEC 19, 2016
No head after seconds; virtually black beer. Sweet coffee, bit of Haagse Hopjes, caramel/toffee. Bitter-sweetish, roasted, mild chilli, some heat that isnt alcohol; roasted and vanilla, cherry-filled chocolate. Medium to well bodied, viscous. The restrained chilli is an excellent touch. Thanks to Louis!
