Black as the void, with a soapy, chocolate-milkshake-coloured head that dissipates very quickly.

Aromas of wonderful Mexican chocolate, with the cacao up front backed by an appropriately soft but noticeable amount of vanilla and the faintest hint of chili.

Body is thinner than expected -- more along porter lines -- but is robust and extremely complex in flavour and balance. Rolling waves of cacao, vanilla, and chile fight for dominance around the palate, with just the right amount of coffee so that it adds rather than detracts from the complex chocolate characters.

Chocolate and vanilla up front and throughout, with just enough chile and coffee on the finish to add a ton of complexity. Easily one of the best stouts I've had the pleasure of tasting. Thank you, Craig!

Wow, a really great balanced imperial stout. The flavors all come through separately the vanilla keeps it sweet and the chocolate isn't bitter like some stouts. The pepper removes the alcohol burn. At 14% this is a great beer. The mouthfeel isn't as viscous as some of the big stouts but it's good. Seek whenever you can
