Pours a thin black in appearance, not the thickness I was hoping for.

Smells of cinnamon, peppers, and bourbon are well hidden and not overly abundant.

This is an interesting one! Starts off as a standard stout that quickly develops into a Mexican fiesta in the mouth. Chilis, spices, and bourbon are all very well balanced to give a Latin vibe to this brew.

Tastes just like hot chocolate, but the spices slightly degraded the overall score for mouthfeel on this one.

Overall a very nice dessert beer, this one sure warms the belly!

Served in a snifter

A - It looks like cola when poured. I'll just call this one black. When held to the light, none comes through. It is capped with three inches of dark mocha head that leaves little trace behind after a few minutes.

S - The spices really pop in this version. The aroma is filled with cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and chocolate.

T - The spices stand out in the taste, too. The cinnamon and nutmeg make this taste like a chocolatey Christmas treat. The coffee is noticeable in the finish and aftertaste. The peppers are no where to be found. There is also a rather sweet building of vanilla after a few drinks. It is almost too sweet.

M - Full

O - This is one bourbon barrel beer that I prefer the non barrel aged version of better. The spices are much more distinct in this variant. The sweetness really comes through to almost be a hindrance rather than amplify the taste. I think I'll stick with the regular Mayan Mocha with I very much like.
