Bottle received in a trade.

Pours a very dark brown, essentially black, with a small film on top that almost passes for a head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon, roasted malt, and a slight bit of peppers.

Tastes similar. The cinnamon doesn't come through quite as strongly as it does in the aroma. There's a lot of flavor here for the lower ABV. I'm not really getting any coffee, but I am getting lots of chocolate, and more pepper than the aroma would tell you. The pepper flavor is pretty hot, and builds up slowly as you drink more of this. It never becomes overwhelming, luckily.

This is medium bodied, a bit thinner than I tend to like my stouts, but it is much lower ABV. It's got a lower amount of carbonation, and a creamy, smooth mouthfeel.

Always nice to try another Mexican-style stout. This isn't quite the hard hitter that some of the more Imperial versions are, but this is still well executed.

A beer pours in a dark black, much like a bigger beer than the 6% it is

The aroma has everything. A huge burst of cinnamon, nutmeg, spicy fresh pepper, and mocha of roasted coffee and light chocolate. A touch of vanilla from the barrel, but not barrel bourbon.

The flavor follows with that huge spice in the front of cinnamon and nutmeg. Mocha balances the beer with roasted coffee and milk chocolate. Pepper pops at the back of the throat with heat.

Reminds me hugely of Xocoveza. This beer is one of the best 6% stouts I've ever had. Quite underrated.
