look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A. Dark brown to almost black with a tan head of 2 fingers.

S. Somewhat shy nose - chocolate, creamy vanilla and dark roasted malt.

T. Really expressive palate - rich chocolate, roasted malt, expresso followed by some chili pepper heat. Finishes long with roasted malt and lingering heat from the peppers on the back end.

F. Moderate to full bodied with good creaminess. One of the better feeling stouts from Central Waters.

O. I believe this was released in early 2014 - some cellar time has really put the pepper heat into a nice place. It's still there but not so dominating as it was right after release. This is an excellent beer - one of the tops I have had from CW. I hope they brew this again.

Amazing. Great body and flavor from the imperial stout, with a serious, but underlying pepper burn that never overpowers, but definitely builds some heat as you sip.

Bought a bomber at the central waters. Actually, not that bad. Not my cup of tea, but ok. Decent stout, with a slight pepperyness.

1 PINT 6FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a snifter

It is as dark as the ace of spades. It is capped with an inch of mocha head that leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is of dark fruit, cocoa, molasses, plum, fig, anise, and coffee.

The taste is deep and rich. I get some intense roasted malt featuring dark chocolate and anise with a slight burnt flavor. The chili peppers tingle my tongue but are not hot.

It is thick and full on the mouthfeel.

It is a pretty damn tasty imperial stout. I feel this style seems to do best with peppers being added. The roasted flavors and heat make for a great combination. Endorphins released!
