Split this big beer with BostonRyan. $21/25oz. Poured at cellar temp into 2 mini-goblet glasses.
A: This is a dark brown/black beer, head is a little lighter than I imagined solid retention and lacing.
S: A lot of chilli, coffee, chocolate, and cinnamon on the nose. Some roasty malts as well. Very pleasing.
T: Wow, chilli. Chilli presence is crazy on this beer. The cinnamon is also very present. Nice chocolatey notes add a richness to it. Roasty malts and coffee as you might imagine. Little to no booziness.
M: Sadly, the only unremarkable aspect of this beer. Its tastes and smells compete with Huna's, but the moutfeel is too thin and overcarbonated. Wet throughout but some dryness on the finish from the pepper.
O: A fantastic imperial stout that is almost as good as Huna. Perhaps the BA version of this thickens the mouthfeels and tones down the carbonation. I imagine with that, plus perhaps some barrel, vanilla, oak, and bourbon notes, this could be one of the best beers ever. Definitely would want to try the BA version of this.
