Bottled sample via and shared with oakbluff. Jet black in colour with moderate carbonation and an odd coloured (beige with a hint of red) head. Aromas are of roasted malt, spicy pepper, raw chocolate, vanilla, and Mexican coffee. Sort of like a fancy spicy peppery hot chocolate in the mouth, along with more vanilla, red bean, and medium roast coffee. Heavy bodied, with the peppery heat providing some interesting balance on the palate. Amazing stuff.

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.
