Look - Thats how a stout should look. Thick blackness with a big lasting sticky tan foam.
Smell - sweet vanilla and cinnamon with a slight cocoa scent along with some spices
Taste - Lots of complex flavor. cinnamon vanilla with the spices but not hot as expected since its habanero. Kind of nutty but very light on that side
Feel - light body with a light carbonation as well.
Overall - I was expecting more but its still pretty good.

Pours a deep black with a slight caramel-colored head that fades to a creamy ring almost immediately.

Aromas burst with habanero heat out of the bottle, but soon soften immensely to form a bouquet of soft, incredibly vibrant cinnamon (now with only a little peppery heat in the background), bright vanilla, and mild oak; very detailed but easy to decipher, and so well-done.

Taste sees the habanero heat make a return, adding an overarching and earthy spice to notes of cacao nibs, light cinnamon, walnut, and creamy vanilla on the finish.

Mouthfeel is slick but smooth and has this really appealing, mild creaminess working for it; no trace of the ABV, not to mention the heat is tempered very nicely on the palate.

Absolutely loving the cinnamon tones in this one; good use of heat as well, and although at times overwhelming, it always belonged in the profile. I'm normally not one for peppery stouts, but this one had my curiosity, and from a pure quality standpoint did not disappoint.

Pours black with a finger and half of khaki-colored, dense foam. Head has good retention. Aroma is spicy mole, walnuts, pecans, chocolate, lactose, and roasted and toasted malts. Lovely depth to the aroma, with a fun little twist in the aroma. Flavor profile is Mexican spices, lactose, walnuts, pecans, and roasted and toasted malts. Nuts and malts are up front with the spices swelling on the back of the tongue as the beer warms. Mouth feel is medium in thickness with a velvety, fuzzy, grainy texture. Good presence. Overall, a very tasty brew with a pleasant twist in the aroma and flavor profile. It has a great presence.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 375mL bottle.
