COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As the name suggests, this 11.3% ABV American Imperial Stout is the foundation of everyones favorite, Sunday Morning Stout, with a twist (and without the barrel aging) This brew captures everything youd expect from a traditional mol coffee, chocolate, heat and smokiness. Foremost is coffee, which is followed by layers of chocolate courtesy of the chocolate malt, cocoa powder and cacao nibs. Finally, a subtle lingering heat and smokiness from our blend of ancho, pasilla, mulato and chipotle peppers, as well as cinnamon, which is gone by the time youre ready for your next sip.

Bottle from Shawan Liquors. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Big peppers and chocolate on the nose. As it warms the coffee becomes more apparent. Malty and sweet on the tongue with a hint of pepper. Easy sipper. Nice stout.

Pours dark black thick with tan head quickly dissipates. The aroma is coffee, alcohol, roasty malt. The flavor is roasty sweet molasses, coffee, little notes of plum mainly chocolate. Overall body is very thick and tasty, def a good brew for a cold sunday!

Pours soy black into a tulip. Mocha head quickly recedes to stillness. Chocolate, chipotle and coffee aromas. Medium to sharp with soy and licorice upfront turning to cinnamon and dark chocolate before the mild chipotle in the smoky burn finish.

12 oz bottle from Tavour. Nose is chocolate, roast coffee, and more really dark roasted coffee. Black with a small, lightly lacing, cinnamon tan head. Flavor is lightly peppery, lightly sweet, chipolte peppers, and dark chocolate with coffee accents. Nice!

chinchill (4824) - South Carolina, USA - APR 16, 2017
12 oz bottle withe a 9/16 bottling date and a 9.2018 BB date. Near black body pours with obviously low carbonation. The carbonation is adequate. Rich flavor with notes of dark chocolate, light coffee, cooked chilies, black bread Boozy aroma and feel, but with most of the heat no doubt coming from the chilies. You can smell these coming and no one will miss the chili heat in the mouth, but it is just moderately hot. Overall: An appealing but hot stout thats plenty good just a 6.5 months old. Nonetheless, Ill age an additional bottle or two and return to this after at least a year of further aging.

10/9/16. On tap at Bleu Cafe. How many Huny clones are there these days? Black pour with nice tan head. Mild aroma, coffee and chocolate, a hint of spice. Good flavor, chocolate, coffee, cinnamon, some heat build as you get through the glass. Tasty.

kramer (6657) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 6, 2017
Bottle. Pours a pitch black body, rather viscous looking, with a small fizzy dark brown head that faded quickly. The nose is pretty intense, lots of roast, coffee, cinnamon, chocolate, a lesser pepper note, and a bit of alcohol. The flavor is just as intense, the mole dominates quite a bit, the cinnamon and pepper especially, more than the coffee and chocolate. This is quite a big beer. Rather warming and a bit boozy tasting on the finish. Though the coffee does emerge and takes over some the more of this I have. Interesting beer, its better than I was expecting. Full bodied and very chewy with soft fizzy carbonation. Intense stuff, glad its in a 12 oz bottle.

ryanscourt (1436) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2017
Enjoyable. Thick motor oil like body with light chochlate flavors. Light heat at the end that is actually nice, normally not a big fan of pepper spices in beer.

LinusStick (3420) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 26, 2017
Delicious and thick imperial stout. Aroma was big and full. Strong chocolate (both milk and dark) with heavy coffee. Pour was a deep dark brown/near black with a thin tan ring for a head. Taste was thick and chewy. The heavy chocolate and coffee flavors dominated with a nice bitter roasted malt finish. Didnt pick up any of the pepper or cinammon flavors. Thick mouth feel. Good carbonation. Nice beer
