4.33/5 rDev +8%
Opaque and very dark brown with a big pile of awesome brown bubbly foam on top. Sticky clumps cling to the glass as soon as the head starts to calm down casually. Aroma is sweet and dark chocolate, softly roasty, with some fun zesty spicy pepper. Caramel, cream, and buttered toast. Taste is that of a very well done imperial stout with pepper heat that carries itself nicely from slightly after the beginning of each sip through to beyond the finish. Sweet and soft at first turning into spicy drawn out heat. I think two words that summarize smell, taste, and mouthfeel are soft and spicy.

Black - dark as can be coming out of the bottle, crowned by a generous head of thick, tan froth. Heavy, dark chocolate aroma with deep bready roasted malt, cream, malted milk balls, and a hint of chili. Super smooth and intoxicating. Tons of dark, chewy malts in the flavor, continuing to focus on the chocolate. Creamy coffee, roast, nuts, oats, and berries. The habenero flavor seems to come out more long after the swallow, in the aftertaste. Silky smooth, heavy mouthfeel with a building peppery heat. This is much more than a gimmick...the base beer is a very well-crafted, delicious stout that brings big flavor without feeling too strong. Tasty!

Poured this 22 oz. bottle into a New Belgium globe. The body was deep brown with a dark tan head. The dense creamy head left specks of lace.
The smell was ashy. Chili peppers. Metal and grain.
The taste was also ashy. There was a nice peppery burn which was never too hot. Light char and rich maltiness. Chocolatey.
The mouthfeel was creamy and medium to full with moderate carbonation.

Poured from a bomber into a snifter, the beer is a mahogany highlighted black coloring with a frothy, foamy, dark tan head that sustains a solid surface covering while you drink. Aromas of milk chocolate, pepper, mocha, earthy notes, and an underlying bitterness. Flavors are smooth and sweet forward, with a milk chocolate and baker's chocolate blend, followed by a subtle, underlying pepper spice and heat. A great job is done keeping the pepper spice as a highlight and not letting it overpower anything. Coffee/mocha sweet and bitter balance throughout, transitioning to a cocoa and pepper spiced aftertaste. Smooth and light bodied, with a smooth, clean finish and a subtle pepper linger. Building heat in the back of the throat as you drink, too. Seriously, this is one of the better beers made with habanero peppers, using it as a balance/highlight instead of an overpowering palate wrecker.
