3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle from Red Dog. Poured at room temperature. Pours a deep amber to light brown body with a lasting ring of beige head. Aromas of cocoa, cinnamon, like the aroma of that cinnamon roll shop in the mall. Flavors first hit with chipotle, including a touch of smoke, and other fruitiness of the peppers followed by caramel, cinnamon, and chocolate. Finish is mildly spicy and sweet cinnamon, like a red hot.

Quite good within this style. Nice amount of heat, rich cinnamon character, not overly thick, altogether a delicious beer.

650 ml bottle poured at home. Pours a dark brown with no head but beige lacing. Smells like chili powder. Taste is chocolate with a spicy chili kick at the end. I rated another mexican stout not long ago and really didn’t enjoy it. This one is considerably better, although I don’t love the style. Still, it’s drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Watering Hole. Muddy chocolate color with caramel highlights and a small tan head. Big aromas of chocolate and cinnamon with some chilli pepper too. Rich and smooth slightly syrupy mouthfeel with average to soft carbonation. Starts off sweet and then ends with a nice chilli burn. The cinnamon is a little overbearing but still very enjoyable.
