Broad Brook Brewing Company OLMEC Mayan Kakawa Stout
What the brewers say
"Cinnamon, Cacao Nibs and vanilla plus Ancho, Guajillo and Habanero Peppers."
What our panel thought
“Hints of anise, fresh ginger root, mint, cardamom, pepper, and cinnamon combine in the aroma to create a wildly complex nose. Those spices blend together in the flavor and emerge out of the roast, coffee, and chocolate malt body to create a mid-palate spice explosion that slowly fades into a pleasant pepper-like heat in the finish.”
What our editors thought
“Molé nose with a gentle cinnamon spice, the sip is broad with a reassuring sweetness that softens the spice but flattens the more characterful edges.”
