Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and cinnamon aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, cinnamon, and pepper flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with nice cocoa and cinnamon qualities all around.

Growler fill from Hopcat, GR.

Several pours into a tulip glass, it pours a brownish black color with a thin skim of tan foam across the surface. Some larger bubbles cluster to one side and slowly ebb away one by one.

Cocoa and vanilla bean sweetness, a hint of tootsie roll as it warms. Light and pleasant, not overpowering or overly sweet.

Moderate chile heat comes through in the aftertaste, backing up an initial taste of lightly sweet dark chocolate, mild roastiness and light vanilla again. Mellow feel, light carb and body. With a bigger swig you feel the chile heat more, but sip it and it's a lingering background element, nice. It does build up a bit over time. Overall a great version of a chile stout, a style i've had three of this week already... must be a record, lol.

Thanks to Justin for sharing the growler!

12 ounce bottle into pint glass; no bottle dating, but is a recent release. Pours pitch black color with a 1-2 finger dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, cinnamon, nuttiness, cream, light pepper, and roasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt with coffee and spice notes; with great strength. Taste of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, toast, toffee, cinnamon, nutmeg, cream, light pepper, and roasted earthiness. Light coffee bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, toast, toffee, cinnamon, nutmeg, cream, light pepper, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt flavors with coffee and spices; with great robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Some light pepper heat builds up on the finish near the end of the glass, but it is pleasant. Medium carbonation and body; with a creamy and smooth mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice spiced stout! All around good balance, robustness, and complexity of malt, coffee, and spice flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black body. Small khaki head. Very thin collar.

Smell - Graham cracker, which is clearly from the cinnamon. Chocolate. A little pepper.

Taste - Peppers are stronger. A faint burn, too. Chocolate and cinnamon, although the cinnamon is a bit overwhelmed by the pepper.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Not a heavy stout at all.

Overall - Nice adjuncts, even if they overpower the beer.

This bottle compliments of Another6Pack. Thanks, Trent!

Gorgeous tan foam sitting on a pitch black brew, the lacing is pretty spectacular.

Lovely mix of coffee and chocolate, sweet chocolate. Nothing too bitter in the smell. It almost smells like a milk stout when I ignore the coffee aroma.

Coffee first, then some spicing, then some heat? Gall dang it, I didn't read the label; habaneros are in this puppy and I'm getting them a few ticks after the swallow. Nice! Before they hit, there's a nice level of milk chocolate to go along with the coffee. Nice job of multi tasking this brew is doing.

Medium bodied, ditto for the carbonation.

Man, this sucker packs some real heat! Not for the timid but if you're a fan of spicy foods, this will fit right in with ya. Lovely brew.

Received as an extras in a trade. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Poured a nice rich darker brown with a good one finger mocha head that faded rather quickly to leave thin wisps.

S - Nose just pops here. Great coffee, chocolate, nice cinnamon, and great habanero heat. Nutmeg and cinnamon pops even more with a good swirl. Holy cow!

T - Taste is a fair amount of coffee and creamy chocolate. Faint cinnamon and a flash of habanero heat at first. Things mellow out very quickly in to a lightly bitter chocolate finish. Very balanced out with the habanero adding just that faint twinge of heat that simple peppercorns would not do. Tasty.

M - Mouthfeel is nice and creamy with just a little bit of carbonation. Super drinkable.

O - Overall, this is a delicious beer. Wish the appearance was better, and think this would be better as a richer, fuller imperial stout. Still, really really enjoyed this beer!
