DCLawyer (2787) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - SEP 18, 2016
Draft sampler at the brewpub. Murky dark brown with wispy khaki head. Cinnamon, pepper spice, chocolate, vanilla. Decent Mexican stout, though nothing really special about it. Solid beer for breakfast nonetheless.

jgb9348 (5988) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 6, 2016
75cL bottle, hangtag says 7,2% abv Deep dark brown coloured body with about 90% opacity. Aroma of roasted malt, nuts, earth, grain and some light spices coming through. Medium-bodied; Strong roasted malt flavours with a bunch of sweet elements showing caster sugar, caramel, canella and a bit of lactose still around. Strong aftertaste of roasted malt, licorice, aniseed and a bit of grain that overpower the sweetness. Overall, a decent stout, but leaning too much on the pungency of the malt and the thinness of this one stood out on the con side of things. Not a bad beer, but definitely not worth US$12,00 for 75cL! I sampled this bottle passed out by one of my teammates after a hockey game in Arlington, Virginia on 01-June-2016, purchased earlier in the evening at BlueJacket in Washington, DC for US$12,00 for the 75cL bottle.

DiarmaidBHK (4450) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2016
Draft at brewpub. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Big malted roast notes on the nose with a bit of a smoky thing. Faint hint of pepper on the tongue which unfortunately fades. Slight hint of chocolate. Solid beer but not as enticing as I hoped it would be from the description. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A really well put together Mexican chocolate type stout. Vanilla, cinnamon, peppers, and cocoa all expertly balanced. Really smooth and delicious throughout.

Bacterial (2931) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - MAR 3, 2016
Dark brown pour at Bluejacket. Big chocolaty nose with some roasted malt. Thin, but quite flavorful. Moderation of all these ingredients leads to a really pleasant beer.
