Wonderful stout! Smooth and creamy with not overpowering chocolate flavor and a fantastic yet subtle habanero spice finish. This is as good as it gets!!! (153 characters)

Pours black with an inch beige chocolate head. Smell is of chocolate, coffee, cinnamon, a little bit of nutmeg, and spice.Taste is fantastic with a large amount of chocolate, coffee, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a bit of burn as it goes down from the habaneros. Really complex but everything is balanced with only the coffee really sitting back at all making it not overly bitter or acidic. The cinnamon & nutmeg give it a nice lingering sweet flavor as well. The mouth feel is rich and full with a medium to full body as well. (520 characters)

Finally, a chile stout where the heat isn't too overpowering. The coffee, nutmeg and cinnamon are present in both the aroma and the taste, with just enough warmth from the habanero to make it interesting. Love this one, smooth mouthfeel and not hot enough that having more than one isn't a problem. (298 characters)

A- Dark as a starless night with a creamy light brown almost peanut butter like color head. The head quickly dissipates, quite a bit of carbonation on this one.

S- Roast coffee, chocolate, nutmeg, a spiciness of chili powder?

TM- taste is of a bitter chocolate with coffee undertones throughout. Can pick up the nutmeg, not getting much cinnamon as in the description on the bottle. Definetly get a hint of heat in this one in the beginning from the hot peppers that are nicely incorporated in this beer. The mouthfeel is a little thin for my liking in a stout but this beer is very well balanced. It has a lot of flavor but is not overwhelming complex to the point that it would be difficult to throw back several of these.

Overall this is a unique and flavorful stout that is well balanced and very drinkable. Worth giving a shot if you like unique stouts (861 characters)

a huge shout out goes to jas45678 for including both the BA and regular version of this beer as extras in a recent goandpickitupformebro (believe it or not, this feind had the never to include even more extras). both beers enjoyed side by side from a hunah snifter (regular) and an abraxas snifter (BA).

4.25 4.5 4.5 3.75 4.25

a - regular version poured with a deep rich black as midnight sludge with a nice off-tan colored head that didn't hang long and left a ring of bubbles on the surface where the glass met the beer. swirling the glass brought it back to life and there was some spotty lace. the bourbon barrel version on the other hand, had a gorgeous shine to it. no head to speak of at all. more ominous...oooh ahhh

s - gorgeous nose. this beer can hang with hunah, mexican cake, the stone xoco...something or other. really great blend in the nose of rich chocolate with just the right amount of cinammon and spicing.

t/m/o - not as full bodied as i expected, but the flavor is there. a wonderful blend of chocolate, spice, coffee, cinnamon and nutmeg. super silky, super smooth...a bit on the thin side, but then again this isn't an imperial stout. great great great beer...definitely seek this out. (1,227 characters)

On tap at Ashleys in A2. Huge mocha chocolate smell with some alcohol. Flavor is very strong chocolate, but not too sweet or syrupy, a bit of coffee on the finish, slightly bitter. Alcohol warmth follows strong, with some low carbonation and a silky mouthfeel. Very similar mocha-alcohol profile to KBS, but with slightly more carbonation. Very good stout--not sure why the alcohol came off so strong with a 6% ABV. I had this as listed: Mayan Mocha Stout. No mention of the barrel aging. Looking forward to trying again out of the bottle next time I visit Michigan.

Revisiting from the bottle on 1/7/14 from a free beer contest from MikeM. Thanks! Pours pitch black with a finger and a half of appropriately mocha colored head. Huge fudgy coffee aroma with hints of cinnamon and spice. This smells awesome. Flavor follows with rich fudge, earthy espresso, and just a small bit of zest from the peppers and cinnamon. Lingering spicy coffe chocolate cinnamon flavor left on the palate with a small bit of heat left in the throat. Medium plus body with medium carbonation and very smooth. I have had both Bomb and Pirate Bomb and find this to be better than both of those, with more pepper kick than Hunahpu. Awesome and underrated brew! (1,236 characters)

poured into tulip glass.

Appearance: Black bodied beer with 2 fingers of light khaki colored head. Head drops down to a ring around the glass. Spotty lacing.

Smell: Lots of nutmeg, roasty coffee, and roasty malts blend with some nice sweetness. Hint of cinnamon and earthy peppers. This smells fantastic!

Taste: This beer tastes pretty close to how it smells! Hint of marshmellow sweetness. Then a bunch of roasty coffee with a hint of earthy peppers and some heat. Next the cinnamon and peppers begin to mingle and add more complexity to the beer. Finishing with milk chocolate and hints of earthy peppers and some cinnamon. The heat from the peppers builds up and gets hotter as the beer warms and during the finish the entire time you a drinking the beer. I would say that the heat is at a solid 5/10.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with low carbonation almost moderate carbonation. The beer gets a little thin and watery as it gets to room temperature, but when the beer is cold I liked how full and oily it feels.

Overall: I dont know what it is, but I am really getting into these mexican style stouts lately. This beer is honestly just as good as Prairie Bomb! The only difference is that Prairie Bomb has a thick full mouthfeel that is just way better. I am pleasantly surprised and I honestly did not expect this beer to be this good! Its my first introduction Odd Sides Ales, but this beer has won me over, I am a fan of this Michigan brewery! (1,460 characters)

Had this on tap. After reading other reviews, I think some people must have very delicate palates when it comes to heat. Strong initial coffee & chocolate taste finishes in a smooth yummy tingle on the back of the tongue, with just a hint of pepper taste itself. I'm a big fan of Odd Side's unique combinations and I LOVED this. (328 characters)

Received as an extras in a trade. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Poured a nice rich darker brown with a good one finger mocha head that faded rather quickly to leave thin wisps.

S - Nose just pops here. Great coffee, chocolate, nice cinnamon, and great habanero heat. Nutmeg and cinnamon pops even more with a good swirl. Holy cow!

T - Taste is a fair amount of coffee and creamy chocolate. Faint cinnamon and a flash of habanero heat at first. Things mellow out very quickly in to a lightly bitter chocolate finish. Very balanced out with the habanero adding just that faint twinge of heat that simple peppercorns would not do. Tasty.

M - Mouthfeel is nice and creamy with just a little bit of carbonation. Super drinkable.

O - Overall, this is a delicious beer. Wish the appearance was better, and think this would be better as a richer, fuller imperial stout. Still, really really enjoyed this beer! (910 characters)

$2.19 for a 12oz bottle @ Siciliano's. 6% ABV per the website. Brewed with coffee, cinnamon, nutmeg and habaneros.

Pours out to a deep black, forming a modest tan head with poor retention and minimal lacing. Carbonation is moderate. Thick layer of sludge in the bottom of the bottle. The nose is fantastic...dark cocoa powder, coffee, cinnamon...kinda like International Coffee Cafe Vienna. Nice amount of roasted malts in the nose, lightly chalky, vanilla and black walnut. The mouthfeel is initially prickly from the spice, with a medium body, giving way to some mild but very pleasant smooth heat. The taste is a recap of the aroma. Plenty of roasted malt, perhaps a bit too much as it doesn't quite keep up with the base malt and thins out the body a bit. The spices are very nicely balanced with the coffee and the roasted malts. Any more and it would be overbearing. The heat is also kept in check, adding a nice layer but not distracting from the flavor. Very complimentary with the mild bitterness. The coffee has a good flavor. It's not overly acidic nor fake and again, is complimentary to all the flavors.

I've had this on tap at Oddside, on tap at other places, and in the bottle. I seem to remember that about a year ago, I thought it was with too little body. It seems this has improved since then, however it could still bear a bit more (5%) base malt and a bit less (5%) roasted malt. As it stands, however, this is a very unique beer in which you can really taste all the ingredients and they are all in balance with each other. A testament to the brewers, as this is a tricky recipe. (1,604 characters)

12 ounce bottle dated 09/17/14

Bottle pours with a deep, black hue and a quickly dissipating mocha head. The beer leaves no lacing.

Aroma is almost exclusively creamy chocolate and other roasted malts. Coffee pokes its nose in the background, increasingly so as the beer warms. Cinnamon and nutmeg spices also make an appearance as the beer warms.

Taste begins with a balanced blend of the aforementioned creamy chocolates along with the cinnamon and nutmeg spices (not really getting any coffee). As the taste finishes, a slight heat from the habanero coats the tongue and back of the throat, never overpowering.

Mouthfeel is medium with low carbonation and very low bitterness.

Overall, this beer was an experience to drink! Odd Side really balanced all the ingredients well and produced one of the more interesting beers I have ever drank. (847 characters)

Pours a very dark opaque black/brown with a 1 finger chocolate head. Head disipated leaving a layer of foam and a little lacing.

Smells of chocolate, coffee and sweet malt. The cinnamon and nutmeg come in when you take a drink. Then on the back end you get the burn of the habanero. Not overly spicy, just a nice bite to add some interest. My threshold for capsaicin is pretty high so this might be hotter than I'm letting on. For me the spice gives me the bite and flavor of a very dark bittersweet chocolate bar. I like it.

Mouthfeel is a bit thin, but this is a delicious and drinkable stout that gets better as it goes. (633 characters)

A: A modest one-ish finger head poured into the tulip glass. Fine bubbles the color of mocha and chocolate that persisted for about 45 seconds before falling into the blackness leaving behind a rim of foam on the perimiter. The beer is a opaque, soul crushing, black.

S: Sweet cocoa and milk chocolate are dominant, coffee and a slight roast blend well a soft mocha aroma is in the mix too. Some caramel and toffee notes.

T: Sweet toffee/caramel and cocoa, only a hint of roastyness. The coffee, mocha flavors round out the bitterness making it nice and noticable. A slght nutty character comes out as the beer warms up with a touch of smoke.

M: Lower carbonation level with a moderately big body. There is a bit of an ashy aftertaste left on the tounge that gives a drying affect, not bad in this style.

O: Chocolatey, coffee with a rnice ound bitterness. The beer definatly came alive as it warmed up. (907 characters)

A: black as night with a copper/cream head that subsides quickly

S: roasted coffee with hints of cinnamon with a bit of sweetness

T: subtle toffee taste in a sweetness like a roated marshmellow, roasted coffee to match the aroma, cinnamon and pepper at the back. Not too much heat but just enough to remind you it's there

M: thin body for a stout, more akin to a porter in mouthfeel

O: this is a great pass at the spicy stouts, the flavours all blend together quite well (474 characters)

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Nice look. Hearty dark brown, nearly black, a little bit of light comes in around the edges. Creamy brown head with good retention.

Not much in the nose. Good coffee, a little sour, not a lot going on.

Taste is quite good. The label claims Dutch chocolate coffee, cinnamon, nutmeg and habaneros. Surprisingly, I'm able to detect all of those, some more than others. It's an excellent balance of coffee, spices, and a hot pepper finish. The habanero and coffee are the key elements for me, I'd like to see more coffee/chile stouts out there. I'd like more nutmeg since I'm a nutmeg fiend, but it seems like that and the cinnamon are there more for balance than anything else. Maybe some vanilla would be nice. In general, it tastes just like what it claims. If it was a big imperial stout or something it might be better, but the hot finish and coffee up front make a very delicious combination. I actually kept changing my taste rating, from 4.0 up to 4.5. I've had a few of these and I just realized tonight how good it truly is. The interplay between the roasted/chocolatey coffee and the peppers is pretty incredible. I absolutely love the tasteful but assertive heat it leaves on my lips.

Medium body, just right for a non-imperial stout. Light enough to be drinkable for the lower ABV, but heavy enough that it wouldn't be mistaken for a porter. Just enough thickness to bring home the intended flavors.

It's ironic that I realized this beer's true power after it disappeared from shelves. $12 for a sixer isn't the best price, but still pretty fair. It's not quite in the same league, but this tastes like a satisfying little brother of Prairie Bomb! Definitely get it if you see it on the shelf. (1,708 characters)

Pours with a cola colored body that settles into the glass as a near black. Thick, frothy mocha colored head that lingers around. Aroma has bit notes of coffee, cinnamon and roast, hints of chocolate as well, but no real noticeable pepper in the nose. Chocolate comes through more in the flavor, with cinnamon showing up heavily as well. Coffee is somewhat noticeable, but not at the forefront and the pepper add lots of heat towards the end. Flavor is pretty well rounded and no flavor over-dominates the rest. The feel is medium bodied, medium carbonation and lots of lingering heat from the peppers. All in all a really nice take on the style. Not the body of Abraxas, Huna, etc., but solid flavor. (701 characters)

Bottle from secret Santa BlowOffTube, thanks for the opportunity!
Solid black color with a smallish tan head that dissipates almost instantly. Aromas of cinnamon and nutmeg with a whole lot of chocolate and some light earth and roast to round us out. The flavor is spices up front with chocolate coming in next, nutmeg pops out again before the spicy heat settles into the back of the throat and just lingers there. Medium body with a light level of carbonation. That is a tasty beer. could use a hint more carbonation, but I still enjoyed the hell out of it . (561 characters)

This bottle compliments of Another6Pack. Thanks, Trent!

Gorgeous tan foam sitting on a pitch black brew, the lacing is pretty spectacular.

Lovely mix of coffee and chocolate, sweet chocolate. Nothing too bitter in the smell. It almost smells like a milk stout when I ignore the coffee aroma.

Coffee first, then some spicing, then some heat? Gall dang it, I didn't read the label; habaneros are in this puppy and I'm getting them a few ticks after the swallow. Nice! Before they hit, there's a nice level of milk chocolate to go along with the coffee. Nice job of multi tasking this brew is doing.

Medium bodied, ditto for the carbonation.

Man, this sucker packs some real heat! Not for the timid but if you're a fan of spicy foods, this will fit right in with ya. Lovely brew. (781 characters)

***This one is much better when fresh. Yes its a stout, but take my advice and don't even try aging it. This beer doesn't sit well.***

Pitch black in color. Brown (quite dark) colored head shows on top of the glass.

Aroma is roasty, with slight scents of cinnamon, nutmeg and well water.

I would call the flavor a dirty, earthy, stout. Chocolatey at times. Cold coffee in other sips. Smoked notes are present. More of the flavor seems to be focused on the cinnamon, nutmeg, and habaneros, but it doesnt always seem perfectly balanced. It does alteast have a little more noticeable heat from the habaneros than other chili/habanero beers I've tried. I'd like if it had even more. Something in this beer (or perhaps the combination of everything in it), occassionally gives me a black, potting soil flavor... like the kind you'd use in your garden. Somehow that isn't bad, I'll call it earthy instead.

Feels medium to large-bodied. A bit slick. Could probably use a tad more carbonation. (1,004 characters)

I really can't believe that this isn't rated higher. I was originally thinking that this is one of those perfect beervana moments, but the more I keep drinking this beer, the more I really like it. Appearance is like any other stout-dark and opaque with a small amount of head. Smells of chocolate, light coffee roast, and a hint of cinnamon. Tastes of chocolate, cinnamon and on the back end, the perfect amount of heat. Mouthfeel is moderate. Overall, I love this beer. I wish it would have more body and little bit more sweetness, but this is a terrific beer as it stands. Must get more. (590 characters)

Appearance - 4.25/5
Pours a very dark brown-blackishwith two fingersof dark chocolate-beige head.

Smell - 3.75/5
Earthy/dirtiness (this could be the chocolate though), slight spice, faint cinnamon/nutmeg spices. Smells like a Mexican mole sauce, just not as great as other beers of similar style.

Taste - 4.25/5
Very well balanced coffee and cinnimon-nutmeg spices, with a slight to moderate burst of heat at the end. I get mostly the spices in the beginning of the sip, the chocolate in the middle, and the spiciness at the end. This beer definitely packs a lot of heat--which is great--because it is well-balanced with the rest of the brew. Definitely tastes like a nice spicy Mexican mole sauce. One complaint though is that the coffee is not as detectable as I would like it to be. Although if they made it stronger, it might clash with some of the other flavors. Maybe this should be a 'Mayan Chocolate Stout'. Regardless, great beer, highly recommended. Pick some up!

Mouthfeel - 4.25/5
Medium bodied, carbonation seems about average. maybe less, but it combines with the spicy heat to create a very strong tingling sensation in the back of the throat. Speaking of that, that's definitely the highlist of the beer. The great strong spiciness that lingers in the back of your throat long after a sip has ended. Some may not like this, but for those who like spicy beers, this one is great.

Overall - 4.25/5
This was an excellent beer. It is very flavorful with the coffee/chocolate and the cinnamon/nutmeg, and then this is combined with a bunch of habañero heat! Definitely a must try for lovers of chile beers, stouts, and all things awesome. (1,654 characters)

The beer comes in a dark black color.

The aroma hits of bright fruity habanero, cinnamon, nutmeg, a touch of roasted coffee, with some milk chocolate sweetness.

The beer hits immediately of a bright spice that hits towards the back and the back of the throat. A medium plus burning. Then onto lots of cinnamon and nutmeg. Afterwards, the beer is a bit watery with some roasted malt and cocoa.

Surprisingly lacking from the BA version. (437 characters)

I picked up a bottle of Odd Side Ales Mayan Mocha Stout a couple days ago for $2.09 at The Lager Mill. I've had this beer before a couple times and I really enjoyed it and I was pretty happy when I heard they were disturbing it in bottles, I'm interested to see how the bottled version compares so lets see how it goes. No visible bottling date, but it just showed up so I know it's fresh. Poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a snifter.

A- The label looks, ok, I was expecting something a little more eye catching, but it isn't bad looking. It poured a very dark brown color that bordered on being black and it didn't really let any light come through with two fingers worth of mocha colored head that died down to a thin ring that stayed til the end and left some spotty lacing behind. This is nice looking beer, but I wish it had a little better head retention.

S- The aroma starts off with a medium amount of sweetness followed by loads of coffee aromas that have that nice good cup of coffee aroma to them with lots of nice roasted malts aroma in the background as well as some dark chocolate aromas that make it live up to it's mocha title. Up next comes the spices, i get a lighter amount of cinnamon and nutmeg aromas with a little bit of the hot pepper showing up in the background. I think the aroma is really nice, and I just couldn't stop smelling it.

T- The taste seems to be fairly similar to the aroma, but it's a little lighter and it starts off with a medium amount of sweetness followed by loads of mocha coffee flavors with some nicely roasted coffee and dark chocolate flavors coming through. Up next comes the spices which are still a little on the lighter side with some equal nutmeg and cinnamon flavors with some Habaneros imparting a slight bit of flavor in the background and a noticeable warming heat that shows up just enough. On the finish there's a a light amount of bitterness that has a bitter coffee taste and it has a very coffee chocolate like aftertaste with warming habanero spice. The taste was very nice, all the ingredients showed up in the taste and neither of them were too overpowering.

M- Fairly smooth, a little spicy warming, dry, on the somewhat lighter side of being medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. The mouthfeel was nice, but I wish it was a little thicker.

Overall I thought this was very nice beer and very nice example of the style, all the aspects seem to work pretty well with each other and they make for one flavorful and unique stout. This beer had ok drinkability, it was fairly smooth and the taste did a great job at holding my attention but I think the warming heat would start to wear on me after a couple so that would be my limit. What I liked the most about this beer was how well all the different aspects in this beer worked together in the flavor and aroma. What I liked the least about this beer was the mouthfeel, I thought it was a little too thin. I would for sure buy this beer again, and I wouldn't mind keeping some in the fridge for when I'm in the mood for a beer a like this. I would recommend this to anyone who likes coffee beers and doesn't mind some spice to go along with it, I pretty much recommend it to all my friends. All in all I enjoyed this beer, I thought it was a little different then the draft version since the nutmeg and cinnamon seemed a little toned done, but other than that it was pretty much just how it remember. It would put it up there with citra and bean flicker as my favorite bottled beers by them so far, good job Odd side Ales, keep up the good work and interestingly unique beers. (3,614 characters)

Served in a perfect pint glass

A - It is black with not a lot of mocha head.

S - I get a sweet chocolate smell. The nutmeg and the habaneros come through, too.

T - The first thing I taste is black coffee. The habaneros tingle my tongue for a moment. Then I get the spices. Finally, a bitter coffee finish.

M - Full. The carbonation and peppers dance on my tongue to give it a prickly feel.

O - I had this on tap and loved it. The bottle version is good, but I prefer this on draft. (507 characters)
