$4.50 for a 16oz draft at Boat Works in St. Clair Shores, Michigan.

Alright, this isn't what I was expecting. I saw this on the menu and hadn't heard of it ... BeerAdvocate let me know that this was by Odd Side, so I knew I had to try it out. Well, hm. Alright, so it comes pitch black with a dark tan head -- about what you'd expect from a stout. There's a nice little head on it, but no lacing lasts throughout the glass. The smell on this is quite a bit of chocolate with some traces of cinnamon/nutmeg. The taste is like the smell... but far more pungent. There's a significant cinnamon and nutmeg sort of taste on top of the chocolate... to the point where there's a spicy burn in the back of the throat. It's not bad, but I feel like this should really be a Winter seasonal. I was expecting a chocolate/coffee sort of stout, but Odd Side threw this curve at me, which I should have been sitting on.

Mayan Mocha Stout is a pretty good beer, but I'd appreciate it more if it were winter. Sorry, but I don't like much (especially THIS much) cinnamon/nutmeg and/or similar tastes in my stouts during the summer. For what it's worth, I'd only bump my score *slightly* either way. Definitely a unique stout, so give it a whirl.

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.
