Pour Motor oil black with the darkest brown head ive seen on a stout thats creamy and thick. looks very viscous with good lacing left around the glass

i had my nose in the glass for a good amount of time before taking my first sip. its a very complex nose and i couldn't get enough. mildly smokey pasilla pepper, cinnamon, dark chocolate from the cacao nibs, some fruits and a little coffee.

cacao nibs hit you first, with cinnamon and the smokey pasilla back end with some licorice.

full bodied super viscous medium carbonation

overall this was fantastic extremely complex not only on the nose but in the taste. i really want to get my hands on another bottle and see it age just a little bit

On tap at Cigar City

This beer is the standard Marshal Zhukov's Imperial Stout kicked up a bit. Some chili were added along with a bit of vanilla and cocoa nibs.

A: Like all Cigar City stout's this one is evil looking in the glass. As dark as night with a huge creamy brownish black head. The beer clings to the glass as if it is laced with oil. The head hangs around nice, and leaves big chunks of that dark brown goodness.

S: To say the aromas are bold would be an understatement. Huge charred malt aromas with strong notes of bitter chocolate. Light hints of roasted chili's can be detected as well. The vanilla hides beneath all these bold aromas along with a bit of dark fruit and tobacco.

T: The roasted malt is the first thing you detect here. Coffee come next along wtih a blast of bitter chocolate and tobacco. A touch of vanilla can be picked up and then the chilis create a touch of warmth on the back of the tongue. Very complex and very unique.

M: Very full bodied, smooth, creamy with the chili's creating a real depth.

D: Not as drinkable as some of the other Cigar City stouts, but it sure is tasty. A one of a kind treat.
