Tried this beer because I loved the 70s cartoon. Wow this definitely caught me off guard. Solid imperial stout and then the heat kicks in, yummmmm. Very impressed with the smoothness and a big 12% extremely well hidden. If you're into imperial stouts and like a bit of spice, give this a try.

Definitely has hints of pepper and spiciness. It almost taste like a cocktail. It is very good and I would recommend to a first time non-stout drinker that wants to try something new. It has a tan the head that dissipates quickly leaving a oil slick like layer over the top. It is dark black in color.

Typically stout look/smell just a hint of chili powder. The heat is not over powering.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: naturally, black-bodied, shiny and opaque, with a finger of dark mocha foam

S: roasted malt chocolates and espresso, suggestions of molasses and hints of hot chili

T: luscious bittersweet dark chocolate flavor undercut with coffee and spiked with tingly stings of ghost pepper magic... minor notes of something herbal and hoppy round off the approach

M: smooth and full-bodied, rich and satisfying, and all a-tingle with the chili pepper heat

O: a very nice Imperial stout with an appropriate amount of heat - assuming you enjoy the heat of chili peppers in beer - I do - for the style (chili stout), a sure-fire winner. Recommended.

Bottled in January, I opened the bottle in March, still very strong chili pepper taste. After snifter number two a decent heat had built up on the tongue....and I loved it.

Poured from 22 oz bottle into snifter.

A: Pours pitch black with 1-2 finger dense mocha colored head. Decent retention and leaves some nice lacing.

S: Light chocolate, roasted malts, and chilies.

T: Roasted coffee beans, chocolate, and a mix of chilies. The spices are apparent and warming but not overpowering.

M: Full bodied but not thick. Finish has some nice spice heat, but complements the other flavors.

O: Another nice offering from CW. Really well done spiced stout.
