4.5 ounce pour on tap.

Cinnamon and peppers dominate the smell. The mouthfeel is smooth but not overly spectacular.

The taste is exceptional. Mostly cinnamon followed by a subtle spiciness from the peppers. I don't get a ton of vanilla but I do get a little bit of the malty, roasty imperial stout flavor.

This beer is great. I full bomber might be a little much but this small pour left me wanting a little bit more.

750mL into a tulip. Pours a deep translucent brown w/ a thin mocha head.

Aroma is rich bitter dark chocolate, roasty dark malt, hint of espresso, molasses.

Taste is bittersweet baker's chocolate, cinnamon, spicy chile peppers, cacao nibs. As it warms, vanilla, caramel and coconut. The chile heat puts high notes on the chocolate and brings layers of complexity. A touch of spicy heat on the finish.

Mouthfeel is thick and full-bodied, but not syrupy or chewy. Good bright carbonation.

Overall just wow. Like a molé beer. Very Aztec. Or Maya. Not sure which. Ingredients are pure and clean, and work so well together.
