Bottle shared by Justin. Thanks man!

Thick black body with a small khaki collar. Huge aroma of cinnamon, cocoa powder, spirits. The flavor is incredibly complex, with each component integrated beautifully into the overall flavor profile. Smooth and silky on the palate. Lingering sweetness and booze complexity. Wonderful.

500 mL bottle poured into snifter.

Near black with a thin mocha head.

Nose: bourbon, rich dark chocolate, undertones of cinnamon. Tequila is subtle and provides an added layer of depth without overtly smelling like tequila. Very complex and really pops.

Taste: Follows the nose. Bourbon, rice milk, chocolate brownie batter, cinnamon. Hints of tequila on the finish. Tons of layers and depth. Only knock is that it is pretty sweet.

Feel: full-bodied, appropriately low carbonation. Smooth.

It certainly had a lot of flavor, and it is a very good stout, but I thought it was too sweet.

Look: Black with a thin mocca colored head

Aroma: The aroma is very nice like a rum cake with raisins and chocolate, pepper and cinnamon.

Flavor: The flavor is chocolate, cinnamon and sugar, some pepper, and maybe vanilla, and a hint of bourbon and tequila. It is both very good and very complex but a bit too sweet.

Feel: It is fairly thick and viscous, but not as thick as some other imperial stouts I've had.

2018 release.

A: Pours jet black with a ring and smattering of medium-light brown, fizzy head. Recedes quickly to a ring. No lacing.

S: Herbal (?) tequila, cinnamon, dark cocoa, spicy pepper, dusty oak barrel.

T: Pretty spot on for Mexican hot cocoa: cinnamon, cocoa powder, mild burnt char, sweet and lightly spicy pepper. A bit of sweet bourbon and some tequila, esp. on the finish. Wonderfully integrated and a nice, moderate lingering sweetness that’s appropriate for the hot chocolate thing.

M: Full bodied, chewy, with medium-light carbonation. Mild alcohol burn.

O: Flavors are well balanced and everything comes together very nicely.

On tap at the source. 2018 edition.
L: Pitch black in appearance. A tiny head that retained a tight khaki ring around the perimeter of glass. Actually get a little bit of lacing on the glass, which is commendable.
S: Aromas of cinnamon, bourbon, chocolate, dates, molasses, nutmeg and subtle milk sugar sweetness. Great smelling and not boozy.
T:Man this is unique. The thing that stands out to me is it is so flavorful even when cold. Tons of chocolate and cinnamon up front. The pepper spice is noticeable but it ins't overly done, just perfectly implemented on the finish. The lactose is prevalent as well, giving a milk complexity to the flavor reminding me of horchata. The tequila barrel is present on the initial profile but the finish is all bourbon. Fantastic.
F: Full in body, medium to heavy in weight. Nice smooth feel with decent heft.
O: An incredible offering from BL. I am super glad to try it on tap, and can't wait to see how it fares from the bottle. I am very glad to have tired. For the record, the wife approves of this beer (which is saying something as she isn't a stout drinker). Cheers!
