Notes: We pulled two 4+ year old barrels from our stout library and gave them the Mexican Cake treatment, with the added twist of dried guajillo chiles for some extra complexity. This is a fun one!

4.65/5  rDev +6.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75
Appearance - The beer was tarry black color with a dark tan head.

Smell - The beer smelled like a chocolate humidor. Notes of chocolate and spice were present.

Taste - There was a ton of heat in front from peppers and cinnamon. The profile continued with warming bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, and tobacco. There was burn going down the back of the throat in the finish.

Mouthfeel - The body was like a melted chocolate milkshake with heat.

Overall - I love the heat on this one.
