Pours black color with a quickly fading khaki head. Dark Chocolate, chilies, cinnamon, wood, and some vanilla notes dominate the nose. The flavor profile matches the nose with the dark chocolate most noticeable and a nice lingering burn from the chilies and spices on the finish. Cinnamon and spices become more noticeable as it warms up. This beer reminds me so much of Cigar City’s most sought after Hunaphu beers which is why I enjoyed this beer!

Bottle Poured into short glass
2012 Bottle

A- Pours deep black with medium brown head, quickly fades

S- Primarily Cocao with some spice, but mostly dark chocolate

T - Follows the nose, dominated by dark chocolate. Not sure if the bottle being a year old killed the spice and heat, but neither of these were present

M- Very smooth, low carbonation, coats very well

O - This drinks very easily for 10%. Almost no carbonation so it goes down quick. I could see myself drinking a bottle of this for either breakfast or dessert, really tasty

Poured from a bottle into a Hunahpu snifter
pour is dark with little head and very little lacing
smell is heavy chocolate and cinammon
which is very consistent with the taste
overwhelming great chocolate and cinammon mix
i don't know if the taste of the pepper faded as this bottle was a year old
either way an excellent drink and would definite get again

11/2013 bottle.

A- Pitch black, coffee head with good retention down to medium dark coffee lacing with good legs.

S- Lots of chocolate in the batch, less on cinnamon and spice. Take that back, on second try more cinnamon, but still low on spice. Minor toffee malt backbone.

T- Somewhat creamy chocolate, some biting spice and a good amount of cinnamon. Some graham cracker in there.

M- Kinda light here, which is the downfall for this batch. Minimal carb, kinda creamy. Great all around beer though here!

O- I have had BA a few times over, dunno why it took me awhile to rate this. Grab it if you can, a great beer. Huna>Mexi Cake>Abraxas>Space Ghost>Copper Kettle Mexican Chocolate Stout. Try them all
