L - draft pour to the rim. Tough to analyze. Looks thick.

As I drink it down its thick indeed. Very sticky lacing.

S - indistinguishable from bomb! Imo. Cinnamon, char, peppers.

T - sweet. Great pepper presence. Lots and lots of cinnamon. Chalky on the finish. Lots of bitter bakers chocolate as it warms offseting the until sweetness.

M - pretty thick. Very, very creamy. Well above average mouthfeel flirting with a 4.75/5.

O - great. Better than bomb! ? Probably about the same.

Pitch black thick and with a small beige head

Smell of coffee, loads of cinnamon, a bit of cocoa

The taste follows with an amazing fruitiness from the ancho chili. The cacao is very nice.
The taste is absolutely balanced. A bit of stone fruits sweetness from the pepper. A very nice spiciness with mostly cinnamon. The hops are floral and a bit citrusy. This is really amazing

The carbonation is fine and the mouthfeel is thick with a semi dry impression

A great mole imperial stout. Not the most hot, not the most roasted one. Certainly the most balanced one.

Taste: Cinnamon, nutmeg, dried chilies. The chilies give of this sweet fruity flavor, dark chocolate, dark roasted malts, espresso, light vanilla in the finish. Full, thick mouthfeel, semi dry, a beer that is a sipper. This is great!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Look: Thick. Pours like motor oil and stains the glass. Opaque black body with a root beer colored head.

Smell: Rich dark chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon, and chilies. Like Mexican dark chocolate. Heavy one the nose.

Taste: The attack is all dark chocolate fudge with rich notes of cinnamon and vanilla. This mellows to a body with dried smoked chilies and nut meg. The finish is slightly burnt malt bitterness and marshmallows.

Feel: Viscous. Heavy on the palate. Medium bitterness. Medium alcohol. Dry finish. Thin carbonation.

Overall: One of the best adjunct stouts I’ve ever had. So flavorful but not overly sweet. Outstanding.

From Hopt. 2017 version. In Teku glass. Playing Avernum 3. Well balanced combination of cinnamon and peppers, all soft enough to not dominate. Invites to slow drinking, maybe too much. Too big size for one single person. Took 4 hours to finish
