4.43/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

No date but just recently released in the last month or so? Who knows. Red waxed 12 ounce bottle.

A: Pitch, pitch, pitch black pour. Very large, very dense, very dark brown head. Head fades very very slowly, leaving quite heavy lacing behind. Great retention.

S: Big big coffee aroma. Huge roasted coffee beans, quality beans at that. Lots of cocoa adds a mocha-like effect. Just a hint of sting from the chili peppers but barely. Really nice sharp, bold aroma.

T: Again with the big roasted coffee bean but not AS overpowering as the aroma. A little smoother here too, not as sharp. Still pretty much dominates. Mild bittersweet chocolate mixes with the coffee and stands alone in the middle. Just a brief hint of chili pepper in the aftertaste but it's obliterated by everything else. Lingering mild chili pepper and bitter mocha between sips. Zero sign of alcohol especially for the 14%.

M: Heavy and thick and slightly astringent.

O: A beer with so much potential but didn't quite reach it. No sign of vanilla and barely any sign of the chili peppers. This is basically a big and wonderful coffee stout with a little chocolate to back it up. If I didn't know it had vanilla and chili beans I doubt I ever would have picked it up. The coffee pretty much dominates the whole brew BUT it is delicious coffee so how can I really complain? I had just hyped it up as more, if I'm honest. One of the times where hypes detracts from the experience, unfortunately. Don't get me wrong, fantastic coffee stout regardless. With just a litttle bit of heat. Super easy drinking for 14% with no sign of booze.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

12 oz bottle poured in to a tulip. Thanks scotlyn911!

A- Pours like used motor oil with a half in brown head.

S- Lots of coffee and roastiness with some chili spice and alcohol in the background.

T- Oh, how this beer changes as it warms! The chilies become much more pronounced towards the end. My first impression was of a very roasty dryness, but the taste quickly transformed, showing signs of dark chocolate and raisins. Almost no sweetness.

M- The feel is medium-full with medium amount of carbonation

O- Very nice beer. Would have again.

This is a really great beer. I wasn't expecting it to be this good.

Pours a nice dark beer. Forms a small dark brown foam. Smell is normal chocolate, coffee, nothing out of the ordinary for an imperial stout. Tastes like a good imperial stout, nice and smooth, not heady at all, lots of chocolate and coffee, not bitter. Then, you feel some heat in your throat, some tingling. The peppers hit you in the back of the throat but not in the mouth. Fantastic work. Body is syrupy.
