2015 release drank in Feb 2015. Sweet then spicy. I'm a sucker for peppery or smoky porters, Mexican food and spicy foods, so that is part of my affinity. Very smooth and as good as I remember it from the last release a few years ago.

Having had other "hot spiced" beer, this one stands out in my opinion. Pours a very dark brown, wtih the spices coming to the forefront of the smell. The taste brings some warming heat, but there is also a sweetness that is present. The heat of the spice lasts well into the next sip. Overall a nice beer.

tastes like a water-y Prairie Bomb!
transparent dark chestnut.
aroma is thin and "adjunct-like".... yes, really.
taste is almost "adjunct-like" but the level of flavor competes with that profile. definitely can taste some chile and it adds to the flavor profile. kind of chocolate-y. carbonation appears although there are no bubbles- could it be the heat from the chile? great beer but thin.

Lighter in color than your average porter imo, not that there's anything wrong with that!
Smells of caramel, chocolate, strong cinnamon, no discernable pepper nose.
Taste starts off with the cinnamon and Mexican spices, then eases into subtle pepper heat and mexican chocolate for the finish.
If you are like me, and have a weakness for authentic Mexican cuisine as well as a finely-crafted beer, this porter is a love letter to you.

Want more of everything except cinnamon. Especially more chilies. Would also like it with more body, as a stout perhaps?

Really enjoyed this complex beer. The spice is mild but stands out. Would go out of my way to get this beer.
