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.

rodenbach99 (4415) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2017
Style et rsum: Imperial stout avec caf, cacao, cannelle et piments.
Comment: Petite bouteille de 12oz. 09/14/16 09/14/18 (achete Boston bue avec Patrick).
Portrait: Cette bire a une robe brune fonce presque noire. Un nez compos dun mlange mexicain avec du cacao, du piment et du chocolat. En bouche le liquide est quelque peu piquant mais pas trop, la texture est moyenne. Le chocolat est bien prsent, la finale est sur le poivre et surtout fort agrable. Un hommage russi au mole mexicain.
Note: 7/10

Merci rodenbach99 pour cette belle dgustation! Un liquide presque noir et une mousse qui nest pas l. Un nez de chocolat et de caf avec un amalgame dpices et de piments bien enrobs. Des saveurs bien cohsives dans lesquelles lalcool est bien camoufl. Un corps ni trop fort ni trop faible. Une finale qui mapparat terreuse dans le bon sens. Somme tout un peu discret au niveau des piments. Peu importe, jai bien aim boire ce stout.

Bottle shared by a friend. Darkest brown pour with a thin tan head. Aroma of malt, vanilla, chocolate, slight pepper and cinnamon. Malt and chocolate flavor with some vanilla and smoke before a heatless pepper finish.

BillWyce (1051) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2017
Pours opaque ink-black with a 1-finger dark tan head, that had a touch of red to it and disappeared quickly. Aroma of coffee with a note of chili pepper. Full body, oily. Some astringent dryness in the finish. The predominant flavor is the coffee. The cocoa shows some as it warms, with the heat from the peppers appearing at the back.

chucklemation (1525) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - JAN 25, 2017
Pours a dark brown with a very foamy tan head that quickly dissipates to nothing. Aroma is chocolate, roast, dark fruits, coffee, and cinnamon. Flavor is sweet chocolate, cinnamon, and roast, with a subtle heat from the peppers that lingers in the throat. Has a thick, full body. Excellent!

Scipio (909) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JAN 19, 2017
Pours black with a full, dark tan head. The head appears smooth, though with carbonation apparent at the edges of the glass, and recedes, slowly, steadily, and smoothly. Unusual. The robust aroma is full of chocolate, pepper, roasted malts, cocoa, and cinnamon. The taste has an initial sharp cocoa flavor, which then extends into chocolate, pepper, and cinnamon. There is heavy alcohol throughout, while coffee and mild pepper serve as undertones. The aftertaste is alcohol and cinnamon. This one is full in body, with a thick, oily texture, and has soft carbonation. This is a remarkable beer. This is a must buy.

trapped (2690) - New York, TURKEY - JAN 19, 2017
Bottle. Pours inky black with very small frothy beige head that disappeared fast, mocha aroma, low carbonation, mocha taste with alcohol undertones and a bit of chili pepper, thick body, long bitter mocha finish with alcohol aftertaste. The alcohol bite is a bit too much.
