Cinnamon and spice. Caramel roasty malt. Reminds me of Hunahpu.

Most of the adjuncts are well balanced and come through nicely in the beer, just a touch too strong on the cinnamon front for me. Kind of distracted from the overall experience. Should be interesting with some age on it.

2012 Vintage. Excellent stout. No alcohol presence. All elements unveiled during experience.

Not getting much in the nose, mostly chocolate cake. Taste is another story. That rich chocolate is joined by cinnamon and pepper in a near perfect balance. Not getting much vanilla, but there is a little coffee roast to balance the sweet chocolate. They got the chillies just right on this. Not overpowering, but spice cotes the mouth and throat adding to the mouth feel which is medium to full bodied. Excellent stout which is not far behind hunahpu.
