3.5/5  rDev -10.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pours dark brown with a mocha colored head. Head dissipates quickly leaving a ring of tan foam along the outside of the beer. Beer appears a bit thin when poured.

Smell has a very strong aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg - lovely spice on the nose. There is also a lactose aroma - like sweet milk - that comes through. Not much heat is detectable through the nose. The coffee only really comes through as the beer warms up.

Taste is extremely Taste up front is Chocolate, lactose, roasted malts and spice. Then all the sudden you are punched in the throat with the cinnamon and habenero spice. Lingering spice stays in your throat well after the sip is done. Mellow roasted malts and chocolate not eh back end before that spice is all you are left with. The beer is heavy on cinnamon and habanero. If you don't like spice, you won't like this one. Touch of coffee is noted as the beer warms up.

Feel is thin, medium carbonation, smooth.

Overall its an interesting stout - certainly its quite spicy, and if you like heat, you'll love it, but if not, pass on this one.

Sorry, I just didn't like this beer. Two sips and an unfortunate drain pour.

There is definitely a habenero kick to it, which lingers. The other components work against each othe, IMO. The mouthfeel is oddly smooth for a beer with this type of bite on the back end.

a huge shout out goes to jas45678 for including both the BA and regular version of this beer as extras in a recent goandpickitupformebro (believe it or not, this feind had the never to include even more extras). both beers enjoyed side by side from a hunah snifter (regular) and an abraxas snifter (BA).

a - regular version poured with a deep rich black as midnight sludge with a nice off-tan colored head that didn't hang long and left a ring of bubbles on the surface where the glass met the beer. swirling the glass brought it back to life and there was some spotty lace. the bourbon barrel version on the other hand, had a gorgeous shine to it. no head to speak of at all. more ominous...oooh ahhh

s - gorgeous nose. this beer can hang with hunah, mexican cake, the stone xoco...something or other. really great blend in the nose of rich chocolate with just the right amount of cinammon and spicing.

t/m/o - not as full bodied as i expected, but the flavor is there. a wonderful blend of chocolate, spice, coffee, cinnamon and nutmeg. super silky, super smooth...a bit on the thin side, but then again this isn't an imperial stout. great great great beer...definitely seek this out.

A delicious, well-balanced stout with the flavors of Mexican hot chocolate. The heat from the habaneros compliment the coffee, chocolate, cinnamon and nutmeg peefectly, leaving heat on the palate without becoming heavy or overbearing. A fantastic winter beer, this stout was delicious and should be enjoyed at near room temperatures, in my opinion.

Pours a very dark opaque black/brown with a 1 finger chocolate head. Head disipated leaving a layer of foam and a little lacing.

Smells of chocolate, coffee and sweet malt. The cinnamon and nutmeg come in when you take a drink. Then on the back end you get the burn of the habanero. Not overly spicy, just a nice bite to add some interest. My threshold for capsaicin is pretty high so this might be hotter than I'm letting on. For me the spice gives me the bite and flavor of a very dark bittersweet chocolate bar. I like it.

Mouthfeel is a bit thin, but this is a delicious and drinkable stout that gets better as it goes.

De Labirratorium. En copa Teku. Viendo The OA 2x07. Si bien aromaticamente prometia, en boca es un desastre. A alguien se le ha ido la mano con los habaneros. Quema la garganta. Imbebible. Al fregadero por miedo a que me siente mal
