What the brewers say

“Mexican Coffee is an imperial stout blended with coffee, cinnamon, and sent out for an extended vacation inside reposado tequila barrels. The result is rich and roasty with a kiss of tequila; just like a classic cafe mexicano.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Massive cinnamon aroma, pretty much overwhelms everything else. Hints of spice and coffee.”

Flavor: “Strong cinnamon and coffee with some vanilla background. The roasted stout comes through nicely and the barrel character not as strong as the coffee and spice. Rather boozy.”

Overall: “The nose had us worried, and the underlying beer might be a bit too sweet for some, but that seems to balance with the other qualities in the stout. This is a great imperial Mexican stout. Olé!”
