Enjoyed at The Porter Beer Bar in Decatur, GA from a bottle. Pours a thick, opaque black with some minimal head. Heavy notes of harvest spices, cinnamon and some chocolate too. Taste definitely has the apple brandy barrel notes but is at times overwhelmed by rich spiced coconut flavors and chocolate undertones. Extremely complex with rotating flavor palettes that work in harmony. The finish is surprisingly spicy deep in your throat from the pepper additions. Quite a neat experience and absolutely delicious, although extremely rich and probably a bottle best split between two people. As my wife noted, tastes like how Cracker Barrel's Old Country store smells, but in a glass, loaded with coconut and seasoned with chili spices.

From notes of 3/21

We drank this side by side with AB Hunapu and this was far and above the better beer.

I think you need to do this type of comparison to really appreciate how well executed this beer really is. Yes, it appeared a bit sweet, but if it hadn't been I don't believe that you would have tasted the apple brandy to it's fullest.

We had reg Mexi with AB (going off of memory from last night)

A- Pitch black with minimal lacing. Very little gumming on the glass when swirled.

S- Very very sweet smelling. The AB takes over, leaving very little base spice.

T- Just extremely sweet that overpowers the base beer. The AB is so dominant that the spices are only tasted waaaay in the back when at room temp.

M- Very smooth, nice AB sting.

O- The five of us had reg next to AB; and we all would have rather gone with the reg over the AB. I guess I am glad to have knocked this one off; nothing special here
