Tap at Churchkey thanks to a secret tip from Travlr and no thanks to twitter, Facebook, or the tap list online. Inky opaque pour. Medium dark coffee head. Nose is cinnamon graham cracker, intense Mexican chocolate with Ancho chili, flashes of American sweet tomato paste bourbon a la fifty fifty eclipse series. Body brings out immediate silky melted dark chocolate, powerful bourbon but no white alcohol or tomato paste. The back end gives tremendous chili heat, cinnamon, dessert spices, bourbon warming. Heating, face flushing back end. Rich, well integrated. This is essentially a redux of Cigar City Hunahpu without the lemon acid and thin tea body. Very delicious and worth the hype. Very thankful to try this thanks to Gene. 4.3 level off the bat. But as it warms, I’m going to equate this experience with the best of Bourbon County Stout bottles I’ve had and make sure it gets the 4.5 it deserves. Incredible. 9/4/9/5/18=4.5
