Brewpub reports "our Cinco de Siberious, Mexican RIS. It's an infusion of cinnamon, vanilla, 2 types of peppers, cocoa nibs and rye barrel aged."

Too sweet, a bit harsh (ABV + chilies) and a bit boozy but this big beer is otherwise thoroughly enjoyable. It sure seemed like some coconut had been added to the cask from which I sampled this (in VIP area of a beer fest, so seems plausible). The aroma suggested a world-class chocolate-coconut candy.

O: over the top imperial stout is well worth seeking out. (509 characters)

Poured every 5th of the month at the brewpub, this is every bit as good as more famous versions of barrel aged spiced imperial stouts like Mexican Cake and Hunahpu's. Perfect balance of pepper, chocolate etc. If not the best beer brewed in Georgia, it's dammed close. (267 characters)

Superb brew.
Tasting notes come to you in the order described with spicey aftertaste lingering. Not over the top but good for a fan of heat. Well balanced for 11% and hides it well. (182 characters)

This beer is the best beer made in Georgia to date. Batches vary, so its always worth the effort. Heat, cinnamon, roast, admirable viscosity. It has it all going on. (165 characters)

If I could make it to the wrecking bar everyone they had this beer I would be there until the keg kicks. This is hands down one of the greatest beers I have ever had. (166 characters)

Had this at Ponce De Leon beer fest, on tap poured into pint glass

Poured very smooth and a very dark brown color with a small frothy head. The smell was rich in chocolate and small amount of chili. The taste on the front end seriously tasted like dark chocolate cake in liquid form then had a bit of heat on the back end and ended very clean, leaving a sweet heat in your mouth.

Overall: this is one of my favorite Russian Imperials to date it was very nicely balanced and tasted delicious! Bravo, Wrecking Bar! (515 characters)

Easily the best beer from Georgia. I've made it to every tapping, but one. It is a bit inconsistent, but it's always phenomenal. Sometimes there's more heat and chili notes, other times it's more sweet and chocolatey... all implied notes are always present, though. I prefer the batches with more heat over the more sweet ones. And then you get lucky and it's perfectly balanced... when this happens, it's something special. I personally think it's happened two or three times so far. Good lord, that's a mighty fine brew...
Every batch has still been the best beer I've had from Georgia, hands down. The perfectly balanced batches are some of the best beer I've had, period. (703 characters)
