COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As the name suggests, this 11.3% ABV American Imperial Stout is the foundation of everyone’s favorite, Sunday Morning Stout, with a twist (and without the barrel aging)… This brew captures everything you’d expect from a traditional molé – 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 you’re ready for your next sip.

Pour from bottle. Black with absolutely no head at all. Nose is coffee and alcohol. Powerful drink - first sip is a bit of an explosion. A lot going on - this is a big beer. Black licorice, coffee and alcohol. Good - not great, but good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

OK, so I got this mug because I was buying the sunday morning impy stout and then I find it has HEAT! Big & black with a choco moose head that fades. Yes, first impressions are heat, just like a molay should, heheheh. Mexi - mole that is. Heart of heat is there. Much better than the regular sunday morning variety. Srong impy stout finish, but not as as strong as 11% would indicate.

Adamsville (399) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 31, 2017
Apparence : Noire, pétillement actif laissant un col brun plus qu’éphémère et sans dentelle.

Nez: Chocolat, torréfaction, café. Plutôt intense.

Goût : Entrée sur le malt grillé, le chocolat et le café; les piments étant pour leur part très présents en deuxième vague et nous tenant aussi en finale. Base de malt assez sucrée camouflée au départ par les arômes, mais qui finit par percer au fil des gorgées.

Sensation : Corps d’une belle densité, effervescence moyenne, piquante.

Bref : Exactement ce que la description mentionne : d’abord le chocolat et le café, ensuite la présence du chili avec sa chaleur. Ma plus grande ‘’déception’’ fut de ne pas capter de cannelle. Peut-être celle-ci contribue-t-elle à l’équilibre du produit final, mais je n’aurais pu la deviner à l’aveugle.

Capa (3500) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - OCT 10, 2017
Black with a dark head. Medium to thick body. Full of sweet roasted malt, coffee, cocoa, light smokiness, and a good pepper filled burn in the finish. The sweet roasted malt lingers while the peppers burn off quickly. Very well done.

12 oz. bb 10/06/2018. Jet with a mostly disappearing head. Nose is earthy cacao, vanilla bean, and roasted pepper skin. Flavors of the same but with a bit more intensity plus some soy sauce and raisins. Nice dessert beer with well-disguised abv has a slightly larger than medium body and medium CO2.

JPDIPSO (6293) - Wauwatosa, USA - AUG 29, 2017
Bottled 9/15/16. Very dark brown, with very only a bit of light on the edges from the flashlight test. Even with a fairly vigorous pour, only a ring of tan bubbles around the edge of the glass. Heavy malts and green to burnt coffee in the scents. The more I think about it, the green coffee might be the peppers. Some cinnamon does come through but the coffee and pepper dominate. I seem to remember that was the case when I tried it last year and decided it could use some time. Sweetened, heavy coffee in the front. Heavy feel, with lots of residual sugars, as my lips stick together. Smoother than when I last tried it. Still has a nice burn in the linger. Some fruit (dark cherry) aromas and flavors sneak in as it warms. Still has a touch of green pepper that I�m not a fan and seems to thin out as I am nearing the end. Interesting, but not quite for me.

flatearthman (76) - Woodbury, Minnesota, USA - AUG 18, 2017
Purchased as a 4 pack: Opaque black hue with a light brown foam head and a nose of fine sweet coffee; smooth carbonation with a bit of a back throat bite; initial taste is a dominant cinnamon coffee flavor with a background sweetness of cocoa. A slight pepper flavor along with continuing coffee and a bit of cocoa continue in the finish.
