3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft for Hunahpu Day- Thanks IBrew2or3 for sharing a pour. Pours a dark brown with an off-white head. Nose is lots of porter and spice- chocolate, roast, spices- vanilla, cinnamon, cloves, and maybe some nutmeg. Flavor is lots of porter and the chai and spices stay in the background. Medium-bodied porter with lingering background spices.

Pours a very dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is cinnamon, punkin. Spice and roasted malts. Taste is nutmeg, cinnamon punch. Very sweet. Palate is medium mouthfeel. A bit sticky. Overall a very good beer

Pours seep brown with a thick tan active head. Nose is HUGE spice. Cinnamon, clove, all spice, teas, herbs. Flavor is big roast with insane spice mix. Pretty much toss in the spice cabinet and hope the big roast of jose marti balances it out. AND it does. Excellent execution of a heavy spice beer.
