Ticking this one from memory at tonight's tasting. Massive thank you to mulder1010 for the opportunity to try this.
A: lovely pour with loads of head
S: definitely get the Mexican hot chocolate spicing coming through. Cinnamon is detectable in the nose. Chocolatey in general. Perhaps there's some organic fruity chilli smells.
T: There's more of a Mexican hot chocolate character. Quite dry and extremely smooth with very little alcohol detectable. Chillies aren't very prominent in taste or mouthfeel.
M: Thick and viscous
O: This was the pick of the night against such offerings as Black Tuesday, Black Albert and Abstrakt 04. This was supremely drinkable and delicious and imo even a non-beer geek could handle this with ease. Excellent.

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.
