4.1/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Just hit shelves here about a week ago. 12.3% ABV.

A: Viscous jet black pour with a big and dense dark brown head. Great head retention and pretty thick lacing to boot.

S: Lots of dark fruits immediately. Lots of grapes and lots of char. Bitter cocoa and chili powder. Interesting combo.

T: Up front is the big fruitiness of the sherry. Chili pepper kicks in fast. Way more heat in this than the base beer. Nice spiciness with quite a bit of chalky char and some bitter cocoa to go with it. Lingering spiciness in the finish and aftertaste, reminds me of a chipotle powder when the char combines with it. Long, long lingering chili dusty chili powder flavor. No real heat despite the >12% ABV.

M: Heavy but not overly so. Charry and chalky - borderline dry in the finish (from a relative standpoint for a big ABV stout, anyway).

O: Very unique brew. Spicier than the base beer (at least, according to my memory). The fruitiness of the sherry provides another layer of complexity but otherwise it is very similar. Pretty well balanced. Not sure if it's worth the $17 for a 12.7 ounce bottle (yikes) but it was nice to try.

Ap - Awesome. Classic imperial stout.

Ar - Berry character.. Almost tart, char, chocolate, light vanilla.

T - Subtle heat, feels more like alcohol burn than chili. There's too much char for my liking. The berry character, vanilla and chocolate all blend well. But they're masked by the char and alcohol burn.

M - A touch thin for what I was hoping for. But carbonation level is perfect.
