A: Black coffee, head was a gorgeous mocha brown. It was quickly devoured

S: Roasty, chocolately, stouty goodness

T: The chocolate is present, and evident. The honey, however, eludes my palate

M: Mid-Low carbonation, medium body

O: Enjoyable, but not recommended for honey-lovers. Hessitant to purchase again, but not from my grocer @ $15/4-pack

A: Poured near jet black. Very small, but nice creamlike tan head. Didn't stay around for the party too long.

S: Typical chocolate and burnt leather. Earthy.

M: On the drier side. Roast-like astringency. Medium body and rather good amount of carbonation that plays well.

T: It does a good job repping the taste of cacao nibs. Tastes exactly like them, bittersweet with a slight char and earthy nuttiness. Smooth honey sweetness to finish, gelling the astringent coffee and burnt char tastes from the bitter tasting cacao nibs. I think I'd rather just eat the nibs and get the crunch factor. The beer hits some really good flavor notes, but just lack that alluring sexiness that would make me want to revisit again and again.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: The beer is close to being jet black in color—only traces of dark brown are visible near the edge of the glass when it is held up to a bright light. It poured with a quarter finger tan head that died down, leaving some wispy lacing g on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of chocolate and honey are present in the nose. The honey becomes stronger as the beer warms up.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, but has stronger flavors of chocolate along with notes of honey. Faint bits of sweetness are perceptible. Both the honey flavors and associated sweetness become a little stronger as the beer warms up.
M: It feels just shy of being medium-bodied and is a little creamy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This stout is easy to drink and has a nice amount of chocolate flavors. The honey adds some complexity to the smell and taste.

A - Typical dark stout. Decent half finger head tan colored fine lacing not much to speak of

S - Compelx smell. Very hard to explain. I smell coffee and chocolate, also typical of a sweet stout. I don't smell the honey. There is a noticeable brown liquor smell to it IMO. Some spices in there, but I can;t put my finger on what kinds of spices. Slight licorice notes.

T - All of the nose elements are present in the taste. Plus the honey. Tastes kind of like a dark chocolate ice cream syrup with honey and spices mixed in. FANTASTIC. Really warms your throat on the way down.

M - Thick. Very thick and full bodied. I would say low carbonation though. Or at least below average. Pretty creamy.

O - This is a GREAT stout. Absolutely will buy this again.

Bottle purchased from AJ's in Henrietta, NY.

Stout brewed with chocolate, honey, and "Mayan spices."

Smells like chocolate, roasted malt, and indistinguishable spicing. My nose isn't good enough to really pick it apart.

Tastes like Hershey's syrup, cocoa powder, dark chocolate, honey, a small amount of cinnamon, some espresso bitterness, and the faintest amount of chili. I don't know if this was actually brewed with chili peppers- so maybe it's my imagination- but it is called Mayan Dog, and stouts with the Mayan designation often have pepper additions. Some spice build up on the lips as you drink more of this one.

Creamy mouthfeel, with a medium body
