Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer pours a deep dark brown with a snow-white head. Aroma notes of Vanilla, Cinnamon and sweet milk hit the nose bringing up images of the delicious Mexican drink this beer is styled after. The beer hits the palate with Vanilla, sweet chocolate malts, and a hint of cinnamon; all with a medium body and a balancing hop bitterness. Enjoy this beer next to a roaring fire with your amigos in a cozy cabin after a long day of skiing the deep powder of the Rocky Mountains.

This beer fits better into the Herb/Spiced Beer Category, as it is spiced with a ton of Cinnamon and Vanilla and also uses milk sugar. It recently took home a medal in this category and we believe it is a more accurate description then an Imperial porter.

Thanks and Cheers.

The Elevation Team.

Redoing this review, since I think I missed what this beer truly was that first go around.

Pours black with a nice off white head. Aroma is sweet and lightly roasty; vanilla beans, some milk chocolate, lactose sugars, and a kiss of cinnamon. Flavor pretty much followed suit. A creamy, medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, another solid brew from Elevation. They continue to impress me with what they are capable with. This one isn't my favorite from them, and it kinda pales in comparison to their regular porter (IMO) Little Mo, but I certainly enjoyed what I was drinking as I drank it.

A big ol' bottle that pours black as midnight with a creamy slight tan head. Smell is vanilla, cream, cinnamon, and the local Starbucks. Taste is cinnamon, burnt biscuits, some vanilla, and a bit of cream.The mouthfeel is creamy and slick. This review seems to be holding the record for use of the word "cream". Not including that one even. Overall, its interesting. A bit heavy handed with the flavors for me but probably this not being my favorite style is affecting my judgement. If you like the style, give it a shot. If you don't...well, you probably wouldn't have anyway.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance - Jet Black that pours with a latte like head to it. The head leaves quickly, but it was quite a nice pour.

Smell - lots of cinnamon and a nice chocolately malty finish

Taste - Creamy chocolate into a nice caramel and then a cinnamon finish. Quite fun

Mouthfeel - very smooth with a strong cinnamon after burn

Overall - glad I got to try this one and looking forward to next year's version.
