Alrighty . Here we go ! I first would like to thank the lovely Ba who was drunk off hunahpu while packing my box ! Cause he packed a double barrel instead of a regular ! Honest mistake , right ? Drinking and packing multiple boxes don't mix !!

A: the pour was sexy, silky , and a tad oily looking. Viscous ! Minimal head and lacing. Totally barrel appearance .

S: this very apple brandy forward. Kinda sweet smelling almost . Mild rum notes on the nose. Takes a minute to find. I'm getting raspberries and apples. Not the most inviting smell IMO . The vegatal chilies and spices are subtle. I detect those more than the rum notes.

T: lots of raspberry and apple going on and a cacao and spice finish. The chocolate is nice . Very Mayan-ish in taste if you will. I kinda like how dirty the chocolate tastes . The apple raspberry thing going on I find rather gross though. The chocolate is all the taste has working for it. I think I feel a tickle from chilies but I can't tell with the other cloying flavors from the barrel notes.

M: not as chewy as I expected , but decent body. Fair carbonation. The chocolate adds a graininess to it.

O: its not a bad beer but I believe its wayyy over hyped. It's no Life is Like ;)

Thanks to the members of El Catador Club for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, vanilla, cookie dough, spice, rum, apple brandy, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, vanilla, chile, and apple brandy flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast and wood bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and thick mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty but the aromas on this one are much better in my opinion.
