Poured into a pint glass.

A: Black with a nice tan half finger head that sets for a while. Light lacing.

S: Chiles out the wazoo combined with biscuity malts.

T: Hot hot hot! Malts slide in with chocolate. But the chiles dominate this brew like a plague. If you like your beers on the hot side, this one's for you. But it was just too hot for me.

M: Medium with medium carbonation.

O: I would've given Dragon's Milk a higher score, but the chiles killed it. Would love to try it minus the chiles. The malts and chocolate were great. Letting it settle a bit calms down the spiciness.

22 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 4/15/2014. Pours nearly pitch black color with a 2 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of chocolate, caramel, toast, roasted malt, toffee, vanilla, oak, bourbon, chili pepper, and roast/oak earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt, chili pepper, and oak barrel notes; with good strength. Taste of big chocolate, caramel, toast, roasted malt, toffee, vanilla, oak, bourbon, chili pepper, and roast/oak earthiness. Moderate chile spice on the finish with a large amount of heat after the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, caramel, toast, roasted malt, toffee, vanilla, oak, bourbon, chili pepper, and roast/oak earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt, oak barrel, and toasted chili flavors; with a nice malt/barrel/pepper balance and minimal cloying flavors after the finish. Light carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a moderately creamy and lightly slick/chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish; mostly masked by the pepper heat. Overall this is a very nice pepper spiced imperial stout. Nice complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt, bourbon barrel, and chili pepper flavors; and fairly smooth to sip on for the ABV. The pepper heat on the back of the finish limits drinkability; but this is a very enjoyable slow sipping offering.
