Notes: Imperial Stout with Cocoa, Vanilla, Peppers & Spices

A massive Imperial Stout inspired by Mexican Hot Chocolate, with a long delicious flavor tail that balances the subtle spicy notes from peppers, with the bitterness of cocoa and the perceived sweetness of vanilla. Hefty in both mouthfeel and ABV, with a smooth sippability and a slight sensation of spice that lingers on the palate.

This is truly a chocolate bomb of an imperial stout, really well done if you like these kinds of beer. Admittedly, I have a taster of this at the brewery, and while it was good, I wouldn't invest in buying a whole bottle.

Had on tap. Shimmering jet black body with a faint white ring. Smell featured cocoa and vanilla powerfully, peppers were relatively quiet, with a hint of cinnamon or some kind of sweeter spice mixed in. Taste is very smooth in the presentation of the flavors: cocoa is lush and powerful, vanilla brightens up the cocoa and meld well, the finish has a stronger pepper and spice presence than the smell indicated, but not jarringly so. Feel is smooth, heavy, boozy, and generally makes you sip and appreciate the high gravity of it all.
