Black color with mocha head. Aroma is spicy with umami notes, slightly smoked malt and a bit of booze. Taste is roasty, chocolatey, a bit spicy, quite bitter and roasty on the finish. Almost full bodied with smooth mouthfeel. Quite nice but the original is more complex and even the chilies seem more intense.

Served in a snifter glass from the bottle.

Appearance: Thick deep almost black body with a heavy tinted dark tan head rising roughly three quarters of one finger's length. Drops to almost nothing after two to three sips to the point no stickiness to the glass.

Smell: light chocolate scent with hints of coffee bean, little bland and could be a touch more potent .

Taste: Touch of coffee and brown sugar the caramel and cream all in one shot. Its a touch sweet but well offset with smoothoth bitterness. The molasses aren't too overpowering and hits you just right.

Mouth: Sticky beer with semi thick body and medium carbonation. Feels a bit like mocha with touch of spiciness lingering in your mouth.

Overall: Good brew, definitely would like to get it again but I have only seen this for sale within the dour-pack. Well worth it and you shouldn't hesitate if it crosses your eyes. Salud!

We let these Deconstructed kegs sit for about 6 months before the tap takeover, looking forward to see how they’re tasting. Prairie Tap Takeover, Loosa Brews, Tuscaloosa, AL.

Pours deep and dark, with a medium weight body and an ivory head of foam that sits softly on top. Some minimal spots of lace sit around the glass.

Fairly mild nose, with hints of malt and coffee balancing a clear presence of chili peppers. Time has bittered the nose slightly, but I’m not detecting any major off aromas.

It seems like a lot has faded in this beer over time.. again, earthy, roasty malts and coffee initially, but not a lot happening on the tongue until the end. The chilis emerge, but only a subtle flavor to go along with a noticeable spice on the tail. It’s got a nice sweet-to-spicy feel to it, but overall unimpressed.

A nice mouthfeel, good weight. Creamy, sticky, warm. Slightly bitter, very subtle lingering spice.

12 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 4/3/2018. Pours opaque dark brown/black color with a small dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin lace cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, chili pepper, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, molasses, and toasted dark bread; with lighter notes of licorice, raisin, prune, leather, tobacco, smoke, char, herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness. Mild touch of booze in the aromas as it warms. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt, chili peppers, and light earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of huge milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, chili pepper, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, molasses, and toasted dark bread; with lighter notes of licorice, raisin, prune, leather, tobacco, smoke, char, herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness. Mild herbal/roast/char bitterness and chili pepper spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, chili pepper, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, molasses, toasted dark bread, light licorice/fruit/smoke, herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, chili peppers, and light earthy hop flavors; with a fantastic roast/hop/spice bitter/sweet balance; and no cloying, acrid, astringent flavors after the finish. Slightly increasing dryness from lingering hop/char bitterness and pepper spiciness. Light-medium carbonation and full body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky/velvety, and slightly slick/sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is fantastic. Mildly increasing lingering warmth of 11.8% and pepper heat. Overall this is a fantastic spiced imperial stout! All around outstanding complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, chili peppers, and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth and dangerously easy to drink for the ABV, with the mildly bitter/drying finish. Amazingly dense, rich, well rounded malt complexity; great chili pepper flavor presence with minimal added heat; and light earthy hop balance against sweetness. This was 2nd best of the 4, just shy of Coffee. Other 2 felt a bit too thin, and not as rich. A highly enjoyable offering, and spot on style example as expected.

This one is excellent. Standard stout appearance. Smell is roasty with mild spiciness. Hints of chocolate and vanilla. Taste is roasty, chocolatey and slight vanilla flavor, with a mild heat that hits the roof of the mouth and settles on the back of the tongue. Feel is smooth, velvety, slight oiliness, good booze presence. Not as spicy as i feared. Really has a number of the same characteristics as Bomb! with just a touch more spiciness. Excellent.
