COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer pours a deep dark brown with a snow-white head. Aroma notes of vanilla, cinnamon, and sweet milk hit the nose bringing up images of the delicious Mexican drink this beer is styled after. The beer hits the palate with vanilla, sweet chocolate malts, and a hint of cinnamon; all with a medium body and good balancing hop bitterness.

Poured from a 750ml bottle. The aroma is sweet chocolate, vanilla. The flavor is rich and malty, roasted malts, vanilla, the cinnamon is minimal. Very tasty.

Bottle. Despite the description, the head is not snow-white; it’s a lovely, lacy cinnamon brown, topping beer that is jet-black with brown highlights and as opaque as a mathematics doctoral thesis. The nose is chocolate, coffee, and cinnamon; the milk is more milk chocolate than pure dairy, but it’s definitely got an element of richness. What hit me first was the mouthfeel -- round, smooth, and mouth-coating, like rich cream; there’s chocolate, cinnamon, nutmeg, coffee, all conveyed by that glossy, velvety mouthfeel. Incredibly impressive. Bitterness on the close, and more spice. Very, very well done.

Pours a very dark brown almost black color with off-white head. Vanilla, cinnamon and oak are very present on the nose along with some cocoa; follows onto the palate. There is a lot going on in this one and ends with a bit of warming from the cinnamon spice.

Growler from Craft and Growler. Dark brown pour with a white head. The aroma and flavor of this beer are very nice. I get some heavy chocolate and roasted malt notes in the aroma. These notes are also present in the flavor, with the welcome addition of some cinnamon, lactose and vanilla notes. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice beer.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 19, 2014
Coffee nose, sweet fudgey malts, lots of richness. Sweet, milky vanilla coffee character. Tons of sugar, rich body, maybe too sweet for me but it is a good dessert beer.

Draft. Pours a deep brown color with a thin creamy tan head. Aroma is slightly nutty, roasted malts, sweet cream, vanilla. Flavor is light roasted malts and nuttiness, heavy creamy sweetness. Horchata very present. Medium body with a lingering nut and sweetness. Interesting. Delicious.

Beerenberger (1364) - Fischer, Texas, USA - APR 27, 2014
Aroma of vanilla, spice, and hints of milk chocolate. Pours a thick brown hue with a khakie head and moderate lacing. The taste is overall sweet - a Mexican milk shake- vanilla, cinimon, and milk chocolate. Full body and soft carbonation. Smooth round mouthfeel. Overall, a creamy richly rewarding sweet beer. licorice,

Tap. The look is dark, black in color, and has a thin tan head. The smell is spicy, cinnamon, muffins, sweet, and nice. The taste is spice, malts, hops, touch of a bite, and not bad.
