Sampled from a 750ml that I traded locally for a Fou Foune.
A - Deep dark black with a great tan head. Clings to the glass nicely. Looks wonderful.
S - So rich with a great base of typical IS notes but then so much more. The peppers provide incredible richness and complexity without dominating. The cinnamon starts slow but really picks up over time. And the vanilla is wonderful. Wow!
T - Again, amazing with many of the elements of the aroma working together in great unison where each stands out on its own without interfering with the others. The peppers, cinnamon, vanilla and cocoa all do their part. And at the end, you have a light perception of pepper spiciness remaining on your tongue. Mmmmm.
M - Creamy and chewy with a low carbonation. Fantastic.
O - It's not often a heavily hyped beer exceeds its reputation but this one did. I loved it.
