Poured on draft at the Saison du Fermier release. $10/11-12oz.

A- Poured pitch black with nearly no head. Thin dark brown head left little lacing.

S- Hint of chocolate and coffee hard to place due to strong bourbon nose.

T- More complex than the base for me. Hint of cinnamon with strong coffee and chocolate notes finishing with bourbon notes and slight burn. The only knock is that as it reached room temp the bourbon notes took over and it lost it's complexity.

M- This is the one. Definitely my favorite mouthfeel for this style. Viscous but goes down smooth and has an amazing backbone to carry the complex flavors.

O- By far the best "Mexican" stout I've had. Will be seeking out additional pours at upcoming tap takeovers. Setting the standards high for the BA Mexican Cakes next month.

Served on draft at bottle pick up day today. Was really excited to try this, just had DB Hunahpu no more than two weeks ago. Poured on draft by Pete into a snifter glass at Perennial. This is Batch 2.

A - Extremely dark pour with a minimal 1/4 finger dark mocha foam head that slowly recedes but leaves the mocha ring around the glass. This guy has some legs on it.

S - Smell is rich chocolate coffee smells mixed with cinnamon on the front with some light hints of vanilla and whiskey on the end. It all blends together into a mesmerizing smell.

T - The taste follows the nose with almost a Cinnamon toast crunch flavor but with more chocolate coffee flavors on the front of the palate. The cinnamon lingers throughout the sips as I swish it about my mouth. It finishes with a cinnamon vanilla whiskey ever so slight burn.

M - This is probably the most perfect mouthfeel I've ever had on a stout. Within the style this is no. 1 for me. Chewy viscous creamy smooth beer that sits in your mouth and coats the entire inside. This really is a top beer in the world. The mouthfeel is to die for on draft. lets hop the bottle is that same.

O - I was not expecting as much cinnamon, but with the base it was obviously going to be there. This rivals DB Hunahpu as the best mexican style stout in the world, I am just missing AB Mexi Cake now! This was everything that I thought it would be and is dead even or even slightly ahead of DB Huna. I will be doing a side by side here soon to tell for sure!
