4.36/5 rDev -3.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25
Pours pitch black with a slight brown head. Pretty strong looking carbonation.
Smell is great, coffee upfront, then vanilla and chocolate. Don't really smell the chilies much. Really pleasant all around.
Taste is strong coffee upfront, followed by a nice bit of sweetness from the vanilla and then a bit of bittersweet chocolate, ending with a slight kick of chili spiciness. All well integrated with one another and just the slightest bit of alcohol is evident.
Mouthfeel is a touch watery for me considering the intensity of the flavors involved. Not a huge negative or anything, but it is not on par with the elite examples of this style.
Overall this is a really pleasant and well thought out beer. The mouthfeel is the only thing that keeps it out of the truly elite Imperial Stouts. The chili element is nicely subdued, though I honestly enjoyed its integration here just slightly less than I did in Huna. Give this a shot if you can.

4.53/5 rDev +0.7%

The bottle label has 13.0% ABV vice 14.0%.
The body appears India ink black with a thin, wispy dark brown head; sediment left in the bottle. Deep and rich aroma of coffee grounds, charred grain, and chocolate. The taste exudes vanilla, cocoa, and sour cherries; boozy; cigarette ash. Heavy bodied; rich and smooth; velvety mouthfeel.
My goodness, what a heavenly, heavy brew! Big, bold, and rich throughout with incredibly robust and earthy dark tones in appearance, aroma, and flavor! Depth and complexity galore and a perfect for RIS/double stout fans. Most definitely a dark ale flavored road-trip in a bottle!
And I love the catfish on the bottle cap (not that that has anything to do with the beer or its taste appeal -- it just looks cool)...
