Just tasted a 2010 bottle from a trade, poured into a tulip glass. Pours deep black with a wicked reddish brown head that fades quickly, but leave lacing everywhere it touched. I didn't pick up on the chile's, but the smell was otherwise dominated by dark chocolate, hints of vanilla, cinamonn, and a touch of oak. Lots going on in the smell, but the taste was more one dimensional, not bad, mind you, but not quite as complex as the aroma. It's definately up there as one of the best RIS's I've had. The alcohol is hidden well, and drinks very easily considering how thick and heavy the beer is.

Pours deep dark black with minimal dark brown/cocoa colored bubbles on the surface. The nose is just straight tobacco. A little fruitiness from the chilis and some dark baker's chocolate on the nose as well but mostly wet tobacco. The taste is really bitter dark chocolate with loads of richness throughout. The flavors have already really melded together on this 2013 bottle. They play well. There is no chili heat but some fruitiness. The body is nice and viscous to stand up to the big flavors. It's a bit of a sipper though. It needs to be split multiple ways with friends.

had on tap at lazyboy saloon 9/24/11

Opal colored pour with a massive chocolate mousse brown head; absolutely gorgeous. Aroma is way better than the Zhukov we just tasted; the chili pepper, cocoa nib and cinnamon are all prevalent, adding to the base of roasted malt, coffee, and burnt wood. Flavor is otherworldy; has every awesome aspect of your typical imperial stout, but the pepper and cinnamon just add a whole other dimension. The spicy notes do override some of the roast and chocolate a bit, but it’s welcome, and those characteristics are still discernible, not entirely masked. The palate is viscous, thick, and full flavored throughout. Absolutely top notch.
