330 mL bottle. Black body. Smells of movie theater butter, alcohol, and chocolate. Tastes of chocolate, butter, coffee, and green pepper. Heavy and boozy. Lots of butter, unfortunately. Disappointing.

The colour is black with a brown edge, the low brown head disappears quickly.

The smell got some tartness and notes of chili peppers, chocolate, beef stock and black coffee. Passing hints of vanilla. It reminds me of vanilla ice cream, it is not as rich as I had expected.

The taste is quite bitter with growing sweet notes of milk chocolate, bell peppers, hot alcohol and vanilla beans. Slowly growing chili heat. Medium to full body. The aftertaste got alcohol, cocoa, roasted nuts and some pumpernickel. Passing exotic fruits, rosehips and rum. The finish is quite short, sweet and roasted without any chili flavours.

The carbonation is strong, the small fresh bubbles are short-lived. The liquid is semi-smooth and a bit light for the strength.

Yes, another flavoured imperial stout from Omnipollo. OK, there is chili in this one, otherwise it is mostly like the other ones.

Poured to a BrewDog snulip.

A: Body is dense and pitch black. Head is brown and has an awesome retention and lacing. Very good appearance.
S: First aroma incoming is milky chocolate, followed by the peppery profile and vanilla. Coffee is very light to non-existent. Still, very interesting composition.
T: On the entry of the sip, tons of vanilla and milky chocolate and just a small hint of coffee like an affogatto, being really close a morning beverage. In the end of the sip, there's some heat and pepper profile, followed by a coffee and chocolate mild bitterness giving a purpose to everything.
M: Body is high. Carbonation is high and good. Heat is medium. Alcohol is noticeable. Bitterness is mild and perfect for this beer.
O: Not specifically what I thought of this beer, coming from Omnipollo, but it's a great evolution to the breakfast stout now turned an imperial stout.

Pours jet black with low chocolate colored foam.

Smell is sweet and full of chocolate, coffee, cream and vanilla.

Taste very much follows the nose, with just a mild, mild hint of the chilis. Pretty boozy finsh.

Mouthfeel is a bit thinner than Omnipollo stouts usually are, but still good.

Overall, a very good stout by Omnipollo. Not up to the level of some of their other ones, but still good.

Black color with creamy brown head. Aroma is roasty with vanilla notes and chocolate syrup. Taste is roasty with bitter chocolate, cacao and some acrid bitterness. Medium body with soft carbonation. Overall it's a quite nice imperial stout but a bit boozy for my taste.
