12 oz format poured into a snifter.

Pours a dark brown with a thin head. Coffee and ancho is strong on the nose. Mouthfeel is thick and decedent. Vanilla hits the palate first then segways into the ancho. Overall a great compilation of unique and balanced flavors.

Pours nice and black. Zero head, though.
Nose is chocolate, coffee, vanilla, touch of pepper.
Taste is rich dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, coconut, a touch of oak, subtle pepper. Subtle rum flavors come through as the beer warms. Nice warming alcohol in the stomach.
Carbonation is much too low. Even for an imperial stout. Maybe not capped well?
Good beer, but I️ think I️ sat on this one too long.
