3.5/5 rDev -6.9%
Poured into Founders snifter. No batch number listed. Blue wax on cap. From a recent batch.
Bottle foamed everywhere upon opening. This is definitely overcarbed. Reminds me of my first homebrew stout.
Appearance is dark brown, opaque. Entire glass of foam initially. No head after the beer settles.
Aroma is sweet, chocolate, smoke, spice, vanilla.
Taste is sweet, dr pepper, some vanilla, dark cherry, smoke, lingering spice and very mild bitterness.
Mouth feel is on the thin side, over carbonated, sticky
Overall I'm sure other batches of this are better. Hopefully they come out with an imperial version and fix the carbonation issue

Reviewed from notes. Batch 29 consumed on 7 August 2013. Thanks to Duffman929 for the bottle!
A: Pours an opaque deep brown with 1/2 finger of mocha-colored head. Head quickly dissipates to nothing. Some light brown color is visible through the edges.
S: Aroma of milk, chocolate, chiles, cocoa, molasses, and dark roasted malts dominate the smell. Very little alcohol is detectable.
T/M: Sipping is smooth up front with chocolate, dark fruits, and a slight roasty bitterness. Chile swells through the sip and after the finish to become quite strong. Mouthfeel is medium -- a little thinner than I'd like, with low carbonation.
O: This is pretty good. The chiles are a little overdone as they are just about every time, and this is far from the most egregious offender in that way. The mouthfeel is a little thin and I wish there was a bit more carbonation. Judging from what I can find quickly online, this likely had a bit over a year on it when I consumed it, but it was doing pretty well.

It has a nice tan head, the color itself though left room for desire as it was a dark brown with some light penetration.
This is where it really starts to shine. It starts with a spicy coffee bitter, and mellows out into the vanilla.
It follows the nose here, the ancho chilies melds wonderfully with the coffee, and then smooths out from cacao to vanilla. I was hoping to not have to seek out the cinnamon so strongly.
Mellow on the carbonation, but it lends to the smoothness expected with a milk stout.
Stouts are one of those flavor giants in beer, and this is a wonderful entry. The Mayan spice theme was well done.
