Unknown vintage; drank 10/25/16 @ World Of Beer Evanston.

Black appearance.

Tan head; strong lace.

Cinnamon & chocolate syrup notes in the nose.

Smooth, medium thick mouthfeel.

Chocolate syrup & cinnamon flavors up front; mild habenero heat on the finish.

Very sweet & a little too spicy; above average but not one I'll track down.

Pours out mostly black, some dark brown to the outer edge. Great mix aroma wise of dark chocolate, cinnamon and maybe some ancho peppers.

Taste, more of the same, great mellow heat downbottle, that dark chocolate and cinnamon combination is never sweet, never more hot than comfortable. This is another gem from Odd Side, I really can't figure why these guys don't get more play, yes they make some weird stuff, but they also make some awesome stuff, and this beer is definitely one example of that. Would love to drink this again. Thanks for the beer MIlwaukee Nick!

Everything I read says this is 6% ABV but it certainly doesn't feel like it. The pour is too thick and the flavors too strong. I've never tasted each and every adjunct so decisive. Lots of coffee, cinnamon, nutmeg and chilies with a bourbon barrel vanilla. Nice heat on the back end. Fantastic beer!

Bourbon Barrel Mayan Mocha Stout is like an attempt at a Mexican Cake clone. It is a bit thin on the mouthfeel but the flavor is full of spices and alcohol heat. Overall, a good find.

This pours a thick black with a thick hot chocolate color head. Smell is of nutmeg, cinnamon, and toasty caramel and bourbon barrel oak. Wonderful aromas are the best part of this beer. Taste is of coffee, chocolate, and nutmeg, with some cinnamon and hot pepper coming through at the end. The initial taste is sweet, with some spiciness mixed with barrel character taking over at the end. The feel is smooth with some lingering heat.

Did this side by side with prairie bomb. This one has better look and aroma, but bomb is the better more fulfilling beer. Both are high quality brews.

Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a dark brown almost black hue with a wispy head that fades to leave thin bubbles.

S - Aromas of cinnamon, faint nutmeg, pepper heat is super faded. Nice bourbon and vanilla and chocolate. Excellent

T - Taste is similar to the nose...ungodly amount of barrel notes here, coconut, vanilla, bourbon galore. Nice cinnamon, mild heat, good chocolate. The heat builds some. The main taste here though is the barrel.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, little creamy, pleasantly smooth.

O - Overall this beer was really tasty. Absolutely stellar barrel notes, I can see why people refer to this as poor man's Huna.

Don't know how this only has a 92 rating. Definitely one of the best chili stouts out there, and maybe the best 6% stout I've had.

Thick, black, with a moderate head that fades fairly quickly but leaves an edge. Smells amazing -- so much chocolate, coffee, vanilla, cinnamon, and a little pepper balances it out. Great. In the taste, all those flavors stand out perfectly and bring you an extremely flavorful stout with all the flavors you'd expect from the smell. This could be 12%, I had to triple check this was only 6%. The peppers only enter in the aftertaste and really complement it. The back of your throat feels the lasting heat, but it adds a ton of character and is balanced perfectly. The bourbon is masked by the strong frontal flavors. The mouthfeel is THICK, probably the thickest 6% stout I've tasted. It beats out a lot of big stouts, especially the watery Founders stuff including KBS (sorry it's true, get over it).

What a beer. Overall extremely impressed. Wish this was easy to obtain, it'd be a go-to on a weeknight for sure.

Pours out pitch black with a very small khaki colored head. Smells awesome. Lots of cinnamon, vanilla and pepper skin. Like a slightly thinner Huna, but it tastes better. Great heat.
