Poured black into a snifter

nose- you can certainly smell the bourbon age with the vanilla and chocolate coming through

taste- vanilla and chocolate, no mexican spice though, seems as the bourbon and oak are the big players

mouthfeel- big, thicker, syrupy stout, little bourbon burn as it warms

overall- the bourbon flavors are great, but they drown out anything that was supposed to be unique about this beer, however, I'm not sure how old my bottle was, but I did not really get the mexican spice flavors that were supposed to play in this beer, otherwise another good bourbon aged stout

A: Black as night, half a finder of mocha colored head dissipating quickly into a nice halo that clings to the edges of my snifter.

S: Slight bourbon booziness, oak flavor, minimal spiciness comes through. Chocolate sweetness and vanilla does shine.

T: Follows the nose, chili almost nonexistent. Bourbon barrel agine comes through great, but not overly boozy. Vanilla and other spices come through softly, with a roasty chocolate malt. Also picking up the Mexican chocolate flavor. The bourbon, maltiness, and chocolate flavor mingle nicely, with the bourbon winning out in the end along with a soft smokiness.

M: Not overly boozy, smooth drinking and minimal carbonation. Slightly oily finish, lingering booze.

O: Very good BA Imperial Stout, the flavors are not masked by the bourbon, but it does shine through. I would have liked a bit more heat from the chilies, but would certainly drink this again.
