January 27th, 2015 - Initially the prospect of drinking beer laced with horchata was unappealing. The sombrero wearing beaver logo didn't help a whit. But Belching Beaver is also no stranger to meddling with flavor science, and their expertise has produced a surprisingly likable Horchata flavored brew. With an herbaceous and cinnamon laced aroma, it packs a lot of olfactory punch, though some detective work susses out both clove and Mexican chocolate on the nose, too. The palate is heavy, smooth and rich, and probably by necessity. A thin, gruelish horchata would stray too far from the spirit of the drink. There's noticeably more alcohol burn here than on their Peanut Butter Stout, and even a juniper herbaceousness. The horchata core of a rich cinnamon is there too, but it plays very harmoniously with the malt bill. This is definitely one of the better beers I've had at BB, and is a vast, vast improvement over the Blue Moon attempt at a similar style. Strykzone (7889) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 23, 2017
Bomber from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Light eating black with a tiny bit of amber. Not a lot of tan foam but maybe a finger. I smell chocolate and grain. First sip and I am not sure what it is I am tasting but it is delicious. Spicy, cinnamon(?), lactic, sugar, and a hint of smoke. My only negative with this beer is a light taste of alcohol. Other than that I like it a lot. And it is the first horchata beer I have ever had. hayduke (5757) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 23, 2017
This was shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. From a bomber poured black with a tan head. Nose of cocoa and cinnamon. Medium body. Smooth mouthfeel from the lactose. Flavor is chocolate, vanilla, nuts, and cinnamon. A swirl of the glass releases smoke. Rich and flavorful this is well balanced and quite drinkable. Very nice beer.

Black pour with a tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roast, cinnamon, caramel. Medium bodied, nothing really exciting but pretty well balanced.
