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.

Bottled. Pours black, tan head. Aroma is mint, cinnamon, chocolate, very light and thin. I would guess this is 6.5%, not over 8% at all. Flavor is chocolate, coffee, mint, cinnamon. It’s fine. Thin.

adnielsen (10584) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 27, 2016
Winter 2012 bottle @ home via my rot box. Pours a fairly clear, brown appearance with a big, long-lasting brown head. Aroma has some milk chocolate, mild roast, green pepper, vanilla, and spice. Body is a bit thin. A little twangy flavor. Lightly spicy. Chocolate and vanilla. A little watery. This is certainly on the old side but it’s hard to think this was all that great fresh.

Bottle shared at Pruf’s in Seattle. Warm brown, small soapy tan foam. Warm fruity aroma. Spicy cinnamon, milk chocolate. Hot chocolate vibe for sure. Warm, but not to heavy body. Clean and very tasty.

nealblind (1813) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - NOV 5, 2015
dark chestnut brown some bubbly head. Aroma cinnamon, yogurt wood. Tastes slight sour lactose, a bit of spice from cinnamon. woody peanuts. sweetness is low-medium for this kind of beer - noticable bitter on finish. clear lightish body with milky mouthfeel seems odd. wish this was a little more cohesive..
