Im not much of a spiced beer fan but this was an EXCELLENT execution of such a recipe. I rate it at 4.25 because there are a few other spiced stouts Ive preferred over this but a fantastic offering none the less.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Black, turbid body with a thin, bubbly, dark tan head.

Smell: Highly roasty nose with full notes of dark chocolate, black coffee, spices, a big pinch of Captain Black tobacco (white blend, natch), and a sharp, vegetal note from the chilies contained within.

Taste: A heady mixture of roasted maltiness, chocolate, and vanilla give you a sip of Kahlua garnished with a sprinkling of cinnamon. Before long the heat and spice from the peppers kick in, but it's very well-integrated and complimentary to the overall flavor. A few careful drops of prune juice. More tobacco, which really is all too appropriate coming from a joint called Cigar city. Earthy hops with a modest amount of bitterness. Packed with flavor to the very end, there's even a bit of persistent heat beyond the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-low carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel.

Drinkability: Very nice. Beers with peppers have come a long, long way since the infamous Cave Creek Chili Beer, haven't they? Without a doubt, I'm sure Crazy Ed is smiling down from heaven at Hunahpu's Imperial Stout.
