Updated on 12/11/14:
Easily the best beer from Georgia. I've made it to every tapping, but one. It is a bit inconsistent, but it's always phenomenal. Sometimes there's more heat and chili notes, other times it's more sweet and chocolatey... all implied notes are always present, though. I prefer the batches with more heat over the more sweet ones. And then you get lucky and it's perfectly balanced... when this happens, it's something special. I personally think it's happened two or three times so far. Good lord, that's a mighty fine brew...
Every batch has still been the best beer I've had from Georgia, hands down. The perfectly balanced batches are some of the best beer I've had, period.

Poured every 5th of the month at the brewpub, this is every bit as good as more famous versions of barrel aged spiced imperial stouts like Mexican Cake and Hunahpu's. Perfect balance of pepper, chocolate etc. If not the best beer brewed in Georgia, it's dammed close.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: With an onyx body under a very, very thin head, tan in color and short-lived.

Smell: Roasted, blackened grains, some chipotle. Sharp French roasted coffee grounds. Chocolate, very mild vanilla and very mild citrus.

Taste: Roasted malts and heavy coffee-ish accents coated in a glaze of bitterish chocolate. Subdued sweetness. A lil' dollop of vanilla cream spiked with cinnamon. Growing roasting and chile pepper heat. Peppers throughout but not overbearing or squashing the other flavors. Earthy quality on the back half. Lightly citrus hops and bitterness. Roasty, chili-heated finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Medium-low carbonation.

Overall: It's a bit reminiscent of Hunahpu, which is a good thing.

Brewpub reports "our Cinco de Siberious, Mexican RIS. It's an infusion of cinnamon, vanilla, 2 types of peppers, cocoa nibs and rye barrel aged."

Too sweet, a bit harsh (ABV + chilies) and a bit boozy but this big beer is otherwise thoroughly enjoyable. It sure seemed like some coconut had been added to the cask from which I sampled this (in VIP area of a beer fest, so seems plausible). The aroma suggested a world-class chocolate-coconut candy.

O: over the top imperial stout is well worth seeking out.
