On tap at the brewery.
An excellent spices sweet stout.
Complex yet balanced flavor, albeit a bit sweeter than I'd prefer.
Notes of cinnamon, chocolate, vanilla and a faint but appreciated touch of chili pepper.
Smooth body is a touch thin.

Enjoyed Bluejacket Mexican Radio at a small bottle share and I am glad that I got the opportunity to try this brew. Very nice stout with chocolate and spices. Pretty good stuff!
