4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark brown with thin layer of white head. Really nice original aroma of Mexican chocolate with cinnamon as the first think to hit the nose. Complex layers of flavors going here: milk chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon, maple syrup, and hazelnut

Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of fiulijn. Pours a deep dark brown with a vague tint of orange and a creamy beige head. Cloyingly sweet vanillaish milk chocolate aroma. Medium body, dry and dusty cocoa powder with a rather bitter, roasty finish. Not really a favourite. 230213

Bottle from Brewery Creek, Vancouver
Dark brown color, the head reduces quickly. The aroma is like perfume, talc, artificial vanilla. Dry mouthfeel, highly carbonated; cheap chocolate flavor and artificial vanilla; some roasted malt, and accentuated bitterness.
Odd. Not my kind.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A finger of head on a black body.
The aroma is roasted malt and milk, pretty nice.
The taste is great. Chocolate, spice, roasted malt; lots of borderline sweetness but maintains a good balance.
The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Serving: 22 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a dark brown color with a large, almost creamy, khaki head. The nose is cinnamon, cocoa, vanilla, and a little wood. Heavy vanilla and cinnamon on the palate with sweetness up front fading to a mildly bitter finish. Flat and thin on the tongue. Way too much vanilla in this brew. Not for me.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours brown with fizzy white head. Nice malt aroma with strong nutmeg components. Very nice brown ale flavor with cocoa and spice. Only complaint is with the mouthfeel. Comes off as a bit fizzy. I’d like it better if it were richer/silkier. A real winner nonetheless.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of chocolate, nutmeg, slight cinnamon. Unexpected and vibrant. Dark brown black, off white, beige head leaving good lacing. Immediate chocolate followed by slight vanilla, some cinnamon and then a general earthy malt. Glad I picked this guy up, worthy tribute beer. Has a nice medium to full mouthfeel and body.
