At MBCC. Red wine flattens out the flavors for me here. It still has some spice and the light cacao/cinnamon/vanilla thing going on, but this has been my least favorite variant. Still a solid beer, but the bourbon or Tequila versions (or the original!) are much better.

Mbcc green. Black. Light green paprika, mud cakey, dusty intense nose. Fullish bodied, intense, smooth, some sweetness. Malty rich doughy kinda nice.

Apparently had this twice (same score): Mbcc green. Black. Smooth dark chocolately, bit salty roasty nose. Med full bodied, malty, bit old woody. Slight bready dusty. Ok.
