Appearance - The beer poured a deep black color with tan specks at the top that bring to mind spice.

Smell - The spice and delicious tequila were apparent in the nose.

Taste - At the front, I was made to think of spicy cinnamon chocolate cookies. Notes of raisins, ancho chili, and tequila follow. There was even a hint of lime. After a few sips, heat built up in the throat in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - The body was smooth and thick, perhaps just above medium bodied. Carbonation was noted.

Overall - I love tequila aged stouts.

Matte black with brown speckling and head. This strikes me as a more chocolatey and spicy westbrook mexican cake, plus bourbon and tequila backing obviously. Nice “French toast effect” with cinnamon, some light caramel within the chocolate in the taste exclusively. Smooth feel in between pepper spice hits, well done by the way, and the spiced textures of the cinnamon. Taste is more clear in the flavors, where smell is amalgamation of it all. Would take mexican cake over this, but still very good

2016 Vintage
550ml bottle poured into a snifter

A- pours jet black in color with a one-finger foamy khaki head that reduces to leave nothing behind

S- aroma is rich with chocolate, cinnamon and chili pepper up front, followed by undertones of creamy lactose, vanilla, toffee and brown sugar. The tequila barrel comes across as a mezcal-like aroma, with some oaky bourbon juice in the background

T- rich malty chocolate up front quickly gives way to cinnamon and pepper skin. Mid-palate brings out the barrel notes; tequila takes center stage, with some oaky bourbon complimenting. The finish gives more cinnamon and chocolate, with a linger of pepper and creamy lactose

M- medium body with moderate carbonation, foamy mouthfeel turns slightly creamy into the finish. Some pepper heat pokes through after the finish

O- the barrel combo works well with this one, well done

Brew: Bottle Logic Brewing – Leche Borracho

Intro: 500 mil. poured into a tulip glass. Shared with a friend.

Appearance: Dark black color. Minimal head but some. Same with the lacing as we drank

Smell: Cinnamon up front followed closely with chili pepper, Bourbon brings up the back end.

Taste: Followed along with the smell. Little to no carbonation. Chili pepper is strong for my tastes.

Mouthfeel: Creamy but the chili holds that in check. Medium mouthfeel

Drink: Again, follows along with mouthfeel. I’ve had better and I’ve had much worse. It’s not my favorite selection from Bottle Logic

Conclusion: I’ve had several other Bottle Logic brews and this would not be in my top 4 or 5. It is mostly because of the chili pepper but that is personal taste. I am a big fan of the brewery, just not this particular beer. It’s still finely crafted and is deserving of the score given

Purchased for $20 from a private collector. 3 year old 500 ml bottle from 2018 poured into a snifter. This is my first Bottle Logic brew, as I'm in Ohio so it's difficult to get California beer out here. Poured out thick and darkest brown with a quick and active head that bubbled up furiously for about 15 seconds then rapidly shrank into a ring around the bottle, then disappeared completely. The strongest scent coming up from this beer is bourbon, even though there's also tequila barrels at work. Also notes of vanilla, chocolate, and a little tingle on the nose from the ancho peppers. The scent is very strong and peppery, and threatens to singe my nose hairs if i inhale too deeply too quickly. Truly a delicious smell, very complex and tantalizing. There is a strong and sweet malt backbone to this beer upon first sip. It's very thirst quenching. After getting the rounded sweetness of the sugars and vanilla, cinnamon washes through my mouth, followed by the tequila and bourbon. It's funny, but i can definitely taste both the tequila and bourbon independently, and i didn't think i would be able to. Also a bit smoky. The pepper comes last, stinging the back of the throat and giving it a nice finish. Mouthfeel is definitely thicker and syrupy, with a nice douse of effervescence. Overall, the smell knocked my socks off. And the taste was very complex and layered. Although I wouldn't say this is one of my favorite beers, it's definitely the result of an interesting recipe and the chef certainly knew what they were doing, to allow all the various flavors to come out. So it's getting my top marks for being unique, an important quality i seek in beer.

2018 bottling. Poured from fridge temp on 7.13.2020

Pours dark, minimal head. Nose was well blended ancho, mild cinnamon, chocolate, and bourbon barrel. Taste was well blended between the ancho, cinnamon, and got more tiquilla than bourbon on the taste. Slightly thin for style but made it easy to drink. Overall solid Mexican stout from bottle logic

2018 version poured into a snifter. The peppers are not overpowering but do provide some heat in the finish. Cinnamon is very up front in aroma. I don't typically seek out beers that contain peppers but this is pretty tasty.
