4.5/5 rDev +0.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25
Dark black fluid with coco colored burnt head. Minor on-finger head. Poor retention. No lacing.
Tons of fresh anco chilies. Lots of smooth vanilla. Super nice. I could smell this all day.
Tons of carbonation, with very little kick from the pepper. It's damn smooth and very drinkable. Bitterness is mellow and sweetness is relaxed and well placed and not high-speed. Lots of vanilla, coco, nutty, robust, roasty, not a syrupy mess. Just a bit on the too thin side... Rubber finish without nasty bite.
A bit all over the place, but still very smooth, milky, drinkable, fluid, and quaffable. A damn fine brew, but could use just a *touch* more refining. Recommended, but not worth selling the farm for.

4.48/5 rDev -0.2%

Looks the part of an imperial stout. Black, coffee colored head, poor head for that matter and poor retention. This is par for the couse on impy stouts though, especially one of this strength. One of the most remarkable aromas on a beer I've found any time in the recent past. Huge aromas of vanilla, cacao, coffee. The vanilla aroma is wild. So many beers with vanilla in them the vanilla comes across as chocolate, or cacao, but this is vanilla and huge. Love the other subtle aromas too, chocolate, some earthy quality from the chili. Vanilla comes on first wafting over the palate followed by earthy pepper flavor. This all melds with chocolate and cacao. Alcohol pops up here and there but especially the finish, though it is hard to seperate the alcohol heat from the chili heat. Thick, rich, full, what else can you say. Overall the only fault of this beer is that it is slightly hot, but I don't think that could be fixed given the strength. Otherwise so amazing.
