Achromatic - MexicanAchromatic - Mexican
Notes: Brewed with an obscene amount of chocolate malts (over 150 lbs), oatmeal and crystal malts to lend a sweet, caramel malt backbone and smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Fermented with a clean, attenuative yeast strain to keep the focus on the malts and adjuncts. Generous additions of TCHO Chocolate cacao nibs, cinnamon sticks and vanilla beans to create a beer reminiscent of Mexican hot cocoa. The spiciness of the cinnamon sticks are a wonderful contrast with the rich, dark chocolate notes from the cacao nibs and the vanilla beans top it all off with a creamy, decadent sweetness

Was psyched to get out to WeldWerks for the first time on a recent work trip and thanks to Nick for picking me up. Had a taste of Nick’s on the visit and gave it a 4.25, writing, “Some of Nick’s. Excellent, creeping on world-class.” Online description read, “Brewed with an obscene amount of chocolate malts (over 150 lbs), oatmeal and crystal malts to lend a sweet, caramel malt backbone and smooth, creamy mouthfeel.

Poured a black color with 2-to-3 fingers of khaki-tan frothy head. Could see a few different bubble streams coming up along the sides of the glass. Excellent spiderweb lacing. Excellent retention. (Sight - 4.50)

Smelled Mexican chocolate, cinnamon, cacao, vanilla, chocolate milk, hints of spicy chili pepper and churro. A tad milkier from the can, but most of the same qualities. (Smell - 4.25)

Tasted even better than the smell. In order got Mexican chocolate, cinnamon, cacao, vanilla, chocolate milk, churro, light chili pepper and cocoa powder. That 12.2 pct. is very well hidden. (Taste - 4.50)

Full body. Sticky texture. Average carbonation. Long, slightly spicy finish. (Feel - 4.75)

Really good, in fact world-class, overall. Can’t imagine a barrel-aged version. (Overall - 4.50)

Opaque black body; one-finger thick head, dense and creamy. Dark grain scent; some grain char; spicy, cinnamon; coffee. Rich and decadent flavors; cocoa and mocha; cinnamon; a touch of chili pepper; a hint of vanilla sweetness. Heavy body; velvety and creamy; chewy; warm.

Weldwerks created an incredibly tasty, rich and oily imperial stout. The beer brings some impressive depth and character to the palate, coating your mouth and throat with outstanding sensory thrills. Well worth trying...

Pours near-black with hints of red. The head is a billowing 3 fingers of fluffy tan.

The nose is cinnamon, maple syrup, chocolate, and Twizzlers.

The taste reminds me of Abraxas and is almost as good (almost). Cinnamon, milk chocolate, cherry, and subtle booze.

The mouthfeel is medium+ with a simultaneously sweet and dry finish.

Overall, one of the best stouts I've had from WeldWerks. You have to like cinnamon, though.

Tan head. Black color.

Thick and rich. Cinnamon and vanilla. Roasted peppers, but not very spicy.

Full bodied. Nice feel. Very thick and oily.

Wish it had more peppers.
