Poured into a snifter. Thanks to jyounger30 for a chance to try this one. Can't wait to see if the beer lives up to the hype.
4.0 A: Pours a syruppy black color. Two fingers of creamy dark brown head with about average retention and some spotty lacing.
5.0 S: Wonderful nose. Right up there with the best of them. Complex with all the aromas collaborating. Sweet milk chocolate is by far the most prominent aroma. Blackstrap molasses, lots of toffee, some coffee, dark crystal malts. Plenty of roasted barley and toastiness to balance, but the sweetness still dominates. Vanilla is subtle and in the background. I may be detecting the cinnamon, but I'm not sure. Can't tell there's a chile in there though.
4.5 T: Sweet chocolate is most prominent again. Black coffee and roasted barley team up to give this an equally forceful roastiness and bitterness. Vanilla bean is subtle again, but definitely there. I definitely picking up the chiles now and they add a vegetal character, but I'm glad there aren't stronger. The only problem I have with this beer is that the alcohol isn't well hidden.
5.0 M: Heavy body with a silky creaminess to it. Good moderate carbonation. Thick, smooth, and silky is the way I like my Imperial Stouts and this meets all my requirements.
4.5 D: Very tasty beer with a wonderful nose and great mouthfeel. This is definitely the real deal. Time for another ISO.
