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!

A: Pitch black with chocolaty brown head

S: Chocolate, and a lot of it. An incredible amount in fact followed by a bit of cinnamon spice.

T: Ah, yes the taste. Tons of chocolate, cinnamon a touch of vanilla followed by a nice spicy & lingering pepper burn.

M: Very good, but misses the boat a bit on body, could be a bit thicker but not super thin.

O: I had very low expectations for this beer based on all of the hype surrounding it. But I have to be honest, I was blown away by this one. Its a damn good stout and I will be searching out another bottle or two.

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.
