L — 1,000 lumens passed through the glass reveals a very dark black body, as expected. Half a finger of deep brown head produced with aerated pour. Some retention and minimal lacing
S — Cinnamon, nutmeg, graham cracker, caramel, milk chocolate, cookie dough, clove, vanilla, fig, hint of booze. Very nice and warming
T — Ginger snap cookie, pumpkin pie spice, brown sugar, maple syrup, milk chocolate, mocha, sugar-dusted dried fruits, french toast, and just a touch of ancho heat. Delightfully holiday-like, this is a great harbinger-of-winter stout. My only complaint is the ancho heat could be turned up a notch
F — Thick, velvety, and viscous. Medium- carb. Really smooth and surprisingly mellow for the ABV
O — Aside from the lack of ancho character, this stout is wonderful. These xocolatl beers are always a favorite of mine, and this one is amongst the best I’ve had to date

91/100

Huge beer. Pours ink black with a caramel head. Aromas of cinnamon and vanilla.... Tastes of vanilla and cinnamon. The Chiles show up on the finish which is long and memorable. Excellent.

Great thick mouthfeel. Delicious and on spot interpretation of a stout

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.
