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.

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.
