Bottle (2013) to HFS sniffer
A:Dark dark brown like the color of black coffee it has a small tan head with a medium sized lacing around the top of the glass. It is completely opaque and there is no light get through its about as thick as you can get.
S: There is quite a wide range of scents in here the vanilla is defiantly the strongest, but you can definitely still smell the chilies and they blend interestingly. The cacao is present too in the background it is a very unique spicy scent that I can't really compare to anything else I've seen.
T: Ok so I am really glad I had this beer fresh as the chilies are present and prominent and mix in well with the vanilla flavor. There is so much depth to the flavor the chilies stay on the tonuge and start to blend with cacao nibs for one deep unique flavor I really can't describe it better but it is really good.
M: The feel is surprisingly thin for the style and abv but it does go down fairly smoothly the vanilla matches that well. There is no carbonation and with it not being thick it is kinda weird. This is pretty much the only aspect of the beer that does not blow me away.
O: Wow this is such unique beer it has some much different flavors and scents there is really nothing I can compare it too. It is also delicious I could drink this for days and drink it fresh the chilies really come out and mix in well. This is a hard to get but totally worth it get it if you can

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.
