Thanks to kbutler1 for breaking this bad boy out!

Poured into a snifter. This one is pitch black with a cinnamon looking head. Retention is lacking and so is lacing, but the pitch black beer with a reddish brown cap makes my day.

The nose is intense. I wasn't expecting the peppers to come out this much! I love spicey things and the slight chile pepper spice note in this takes this to a whole new level. Dark cocoa nibs, cinnamon and roasted malts, vanilla and cream and of course peppers. Super intense and I almost can't get past the nose.

Thank god I got past the nose, though, because this tastes amazing. The peppers don't come out as much in the taste, however, which is kind of a bummer (to me at least) but it's still great. Dark cocoa nibs, dark roasted malts, a slight heat from the peppers and a nice earthyness. Great tasting.

Mouthfeel is heavy in body, thick and sticky. Nice carbonation. Smooth feel. Drinkability is great.

Overall, not exactly a stout I will get to drink often, but probably one of my favorites of all time. The uniqueness is just unmatched by anything I've had in a long time. Thanks Kevin!

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5

Pours pitch black, bubbling up a great one finger dark brown head, lingers for a while until it turns to a thick sticky lacing.
Huge cocoa in the smell, lots of cinnamon and vanilla, milky and dark chocolate, fig, raisin, veggie chilli pepper, lower coffee notes, faint wood. The smell is incredible, with just a small hint of booze.
Roasty robust taste, huge with dark chocolate, riddled with dry plums and figs, spicy with a lot of woody cinnamon, rich vanilla, even faint licorice. Mellows down and gets a bit sweeter, with sticky molasses and toffee, only to be balanced perfectly in the end with some roasted coffee, dark malts and faint smoked woodiness. The chillies bring a nice warm prickle in the back of the throat, just enough so you know they're there. Taste really brings up all that's written on the label, amplified, rich and perfectly balanced.
Thick body, very smooth, with a very tiny bit of booze present, nowhere near disturbing. Full complex aftertaste, extra roasty.
A huge imperial stout, unique, worth any effort and future budget-hole to get again.
