12 oz Bottle

Appearance: Very dark brown with a fairly generous-sized dark beige head that gradually faded. A good looking Imperial Stout

Smell: Bourbon, vanilla, moderate chile notes, mild oak, mild brown sugar, and mild roasted malt/coffee aromas. The vanilla and chile additions definitely make themselves noticeable.

Taste: The taste profile features chile spiciness, prominent vanilla, moderate Bourbon notes, and mild brown sugar. The vanilla and chile additions definitely upped the flavor profile in comparison to the regular Dragon's Milk.

Mouth-feel: Medium bodied with a medium level of carbonation.

Overall: A good Imperial Stout that was improved by the vanilla and chile additions. Very tasty beer that's a bargain.

T: big chili heat, a little bit of cinnamon on tre back end. Full spice flavor here, I like it.
F: a bit thin, has syrupy & Sicky feel. But that spice heat is nice.
O: An upgrade to the regular. The variants have missed thus far, but this his Thur mark.

Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours a very dark mahogany brown, appearing nearly opaque black in the glass with a thin brown head that dissipates to patches with light lacing. Aroma of sweet dark toasted malt, bourbon, chilis and vanilla. Flavor is semi-sweet dark toasted malt, milk chocolate, vanilla, chili pepper and bourbon. Finishes with chocolate, bourbon and a decisive chili burn. Medium bodied with light creaminess. A nicely done variant on the already tasty Dragon's Milk. The chili was quite a bit more assertive than I expected at first, but better balanced on subsequent tasting. Good balance of malt, vanilla and chocolate flavors and the bourbon is distinct, but does not dominate the flavor. The chili bite in the finish was well done, sharp but well supported by the rich malt and other flavors. This was great and gets me interested in other variants of this pleasant stout.
