Pours nearly jet black except for just a tinge of ruby when held in the light,a deep beige half finger head atop.Love the complexity of the aromas,milk chocolate,roasted nuts,bakers spice,french roast coffee,and some mild honey funk,smells like dessert and coffee.Somewhat sweet on the palate with honey and chocolate dominating at the onset with some nice roast to dry it out enough,as I drank more some alcohol induced sweetness came into play.What a cool beer with alot going on,again like a chocolate dessert laced with honey and coffee together in liquid form.

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

Excellent stout from Thirsty Dog. Poured motor oil black with a thin tan head that remains on the brew. Smells of chocolate, coffee, and honey (!) the honey amazingly comes through on the nose. I am stunned at the taste of this beast; sweet honey, chocolate, and coffee up front and on the back with a bitter chocolate aftertaste that really plays nicely with the coffee and honey, which itself is not so pronounced that it is super sweet like a milk stout. Lingering coating aftertaste with a great mouthfeel that is light yet satisfying for a stout, good carbonation lends itself well to this brew. Would love to have this one on tap. A new favorite MINUS the price per four pack. YOW!

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a dark, oily-black coloring with a tall, foamy, dense, light tan head. Nose of bitter dark-cocoa nibs, raw honey, and roasted coffee. Flavors are roasted heavily, with cocoa nib and coffee throughout. Heavy bitterness, with a rich, raw honey sweetness. Very balanced and rich. Smooth, velvety body, with a richly sweet and heavily bitter cocoa aftertaste. The finish is smooth and slick, with a decent linger.

$ 3.59/12 oz bottle at Lager Mill
Undated bottle at 50 degrees into Duvel snifter
Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate
Head small (2 cm), light brown, creamy, rapidly diminishing for 2-3 mm ring and 1 mm layer
Lacing poor, few small irregular islands
Body dark brown, opaque
Flavor begins with slightly sweet roasted malt and chocolate with a hint of honey. No alcohol, no diacetyl, no hops. Ends with a faint taste of bitter chocolate.
Palate medium, creamy, lively carbonation

This is a tasty stout. The appearance is decent despite the small head and poor lacing and the aroma is appealing. The flavor is subdued with the honey barely making an appearance (fortunately). The palate is enjoyable.
