look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A - Black velvet, with a back drop of reddish glow. Big creamy mocha head that weaves a web of lace after each drink.

S - Coffee beans, vanilla extract, licorice, syrup, bananas.

T - Opens with a rich chocolate, followed by root beer, vanilla, coffee, and finishes with with some heat. Bitter and a bit of an odd after taste.

O - This is a very unique stout with some heat in the back end. Very impressive look to this along with an inviting smell that works into a really solid tasting brew. Loses points with a bad aftertaste and mouthfeel. I will not get this again.

Smells like chocolate and the taste follows up front, some coffee and creamy smoothness in the middle. It then leaves you with mild lingering pepper. By far the best pepper infused beer I have tried, the pepper is there but never overbearing. I will definitely buy this again.

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.

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.

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!
