Pours a dark brown with a minimal amount of head. Lots of chocolate on the nose, some coffee also. The taste is dominated by chocolate, more like a powdered chocolate taste. Almost no heat from the peppers . Just a slight heat at the back end of the sip., A good stout, but did not live up to the hype.

A rich and complex Imperial Stout. Just enough heat to make it exciting but it doesn't linger on the palate which allows you to enjoy the nibs, vanilla and cinnamon that follows. Awesome brew! I should move to Tampa.

Chocolate, cinnamon on the nose and taste. Mild chili burn. Layers of flavor that linger long after you are finished. This is how you do a stout!
