12 oz undated bottle prchased at Central Market (San Antonio) 2 days ago.
A - Pitch black; creamy brown head with great retention.
Aroma: Moderate-strong vanilla-coffee aroma with chocolate.
Flavor: rich and strong flavor of expresso, vanilla and cocoa nibs over dark roasted malts. Some (too much) char in the finish and aftertaste. Bittersweet balanced.
Feel: soft, medium-low carbonation; very smooth; mild heat from the chilies. Very full body as is apparent in the pour.
O: an excellent Imperial Stout rather similar to Westbrook's Mexican Cake. The later has a slightly better flavor wih more heat and much less char, but a less appealing feel.

Bottle courtesy of kantrauch on RB. Pours the deep, rich black with semi-fluffy mocha colored head that had some decent staying power. Head fades into thick collar, and heavy wisps. Aroma is mostly coffee and dark chocolate, with some cinnamon and a slight hint of vanilla peeking through as well. Taste is the chocolate up front, the chile right behind that, the coffee comes in after the chile heat fades and then the coffee fades back into the chile heat. I do not taste the vanilla. I also get a touch of smoked woodiness in the aftertaste. Body is lacking quite a bit IMHO. I like my stouts to have a huge, thick mouthfeel and this is a medium body, but has the nice low carbonation I enjoy in stouts. I enjoyed this beer very much; the aroma was enticing and hinted at what you could expect from the taste, without giving too much away.
