The description reads "Imperial stout aged on coffee, cacao nibs, vanilla beans, and ancho chili peppers." Normally, I won't taste all aspects of a beer as described on a label. This one was perfect. Pay the money for a bottle.

Look: Black in color and poured with very little head. NIce lacing on the glass as a slowly savored the beer.

Smell: Definitely smell the coffee and chocolate with a faint hint of the peppers.

Taste: Oh boy. Love when a beer matches the hype. Layers of taste. Initial taste of coffee, chocolate, and ending with the peppers. Perfect balance of flavors.

Feel: Not too thin, not too thick.

Overall: Layers. Balance. Incredible. I'm not afraid to say that I love this beer.

Swag syrup. So smooth. Like the best bowl of oatmeal on top of a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Pretty good beer. I was impressed with the complexity as well as how well the alcohol was hidden considering the ABV. Pours black with what appears to be a crimson lining. Smells of warm chocolate and coffee. I was expected a smoother, silkier mouthfeel, but nevertheless satisfied. Overall a great stout. Not sure if worth the $8/12 oz bottle, but it's only money right.

Way too much coffee for me, didn't even taste the chilies. Christmas bomb is much much better... I'll try this again in a better setting because i have another bottle, and i'll quite possibly revise my rating.

This stuff is really good. Dark in color with a little hints of the peppers but nothing to overpowering. I really enjoy this and would drink it again.
