Poured into a Westbrook snifter on 7/30/14
A: pours a deep dark black with a very nice brown head that lingers for a while. Looks absolutely delicious!
S: Nice dark coffee roast on the nose, hints of chocolate and spice...tons of spice...I'm drooling already
T: Very much follows the nose. A nice amount of coffee roast and to a lesser degree chocolate. The peppers are very dominant on the flavor profile which I love. If you were to compare this to Mexican Cake, it's not quite the chocolate brownie taste in the middle, a little less sweet and more charred flavors. This to me is damn near perfect.
M: Perfectly carbed for a nice thick/rich mouthfeel. Can't get much better than this, IMO
O: I'm in love with spiced stouts and this was one of the best I've had. The heat and spice was more predominant than the other flavors found in the beer but I enjoyed that aspect most. Would love to have again!

Tried this at the release. Pours black with a creamy khaki head. Aroma of big green chiles, chocolate, roast. Flavor follows with serious heat--but doesn’t linger--alongside chocolate and graham crackers. I don’t get much coconut here but maybe it is the toasty graham flavor I am getting. Medium bodied with adequate carbonation. I have never had the base beer to this so I can’t compare (and I am told they will not release the base Catherine’s on its own again) but this is a nice treatment. Definitely unique and strong peppers but it doesn’t build. I couldn’t drink a full 750 of this but a glass would be a nice treat after dinner. Good stuff.
Serving type: on-tap
