The beer comes in a black color.

The aroma hits of bright skin of peppers, licorice, a touch of chocolate.

The flavor follows with that really fresh pepper flavor, with a full pepper heat. Some mole type pepper comes in with an underlying milk chocolate. There's almsot a fruity quality from the peppers and it does dominate the beer.

However, I prefer heat and it verges on overpowering the beer and slightly does so. The base could use more robust quality and body.

Bad azz imperial stout. Appearance with an aggressive pour was a smallish, rust brown, thick, soon to settle head, a little lace, and an opaque brown black color. Aroma is black patent malt, roast, coffee, cocoa, fruit. Flavor's like nose, very slight sweetness, good bitterness, enough tart, peppers both up front and lingering, but in a very balanced controlled, pleasing measure. Excellent round, full, rich body with a happy warmth that is indiscernible whether from alcohol or peppers. Almost an easy drinking beer for being such a heavy hitter. Great stuff!

Didn't find this beer to be overly hot. Got a taste of the chilis that warmed the palate on my first few sips, but the went away quick. Beer lacks the sweetness od some Imperial stouts, which would have been nice here. That blended with more chili would be great. Will try again as I hear the spiciness varies by bottle.

Not a beer that needs a lot of explaining. Solid imperial stout with the great smooth heat of ghost peppers. not overwhelming, not even sweat inducing, but very flavorful. would buy again! Great beer for under 10 a bottle.
