Notes/Commercial Description:
Happy birthday to us! To celebrate our first year as a brewery we brewed a serious imperial stout and aged it on cocoa nibs, vanilla beans, cinnamon sticks, and fresh habanero peppers. This is the first offering in our annual Anniversary series. Here’s to many more!

Small draft pour at Tørst

Black with a thick brown head that sticks around nicely and leaves some lace.

Nose is a little lacking compared to the flavor. Could be glasses. A little sweet cinnamon and chocolatey. Pepper skin.

Robust flavor full of chile/heat, roasty coffee, cinnamon, chocolate and a touch of sweetness buried behind the omnipresent chile.

Smooth and creamy.

So many of these beers now it seems. The local Dallas take on this, Mole Temptress, is just as good to me.
