Notes/Commercial Description:
So maybe their calendar wasn't the best judge of when the world was going to end but damn, those Mayans made a mean hot chocolate. With that as our inspiration we imperialized our old friend End of Days. That means more malt, more cacao nibs, more vanilla, more cinnamon, more ancho & guajilllo peppers and more virgin sacrifices (kidding, totally kidding). The resulting brew has a big rich body, notes of dark chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon and a slight spicy kick on the finish. It is delicious right now or you could stash it away in your temperature controlled resting place until the next time the world ends.

4.2/5  rDev +4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Batch 253-254 undated bottle at 50 degrees into imperial pint
Aroma of chocolate and chili peppers
Head average (4 cm) frothy, light brown, fully diminishing to a 2 mm ring
No lacing
Body dark brown, hazy (Bottle conditioned)
Flavor begins with chocolate, chili, and just a hint of cinnamon. There is a light burning at my cardiac sphincter which lasts a minute or two after finishing a drink. No alcohol, no diacetyl, no vanilla (which was added).
Palate is medium, creamy texture, soft carbonation.

Overall, an easy drinking beer. The chilies add flavor and just a little heat, and balance the chocolate well. The rapidly diminishing head and lack of lacing detract from the appearance, but the flavor is very good. In the end, the flavor is what matters.

A- Jet black with a nice lacing that sticks around.

S- It smells very sweat with a nice chocolate and vanilla then a nice spice that comes through.

T/M- you get a lot of nice sweet chocolate in the start then in the vanilla comes in and finish with a nice spice that comes from the chilies and cinnamon. A nice light stout with a spice finish that sticks around for a little while.

O- A great beer I wonder how it would age for a year or so. It has a great combo of flavors that work great with it.
