Bottle Logic Brewing Leche Borracho

What the brewers say

“Our Leche Borracho Imperial Stout was brewed with ancho and chipotle peppers, cinnamon, cacao nibs, and lactose sugar. We aged half the brew in charred tequila barrels to develop layers of smoky cigar and not-so-subtle heat while its counterpart met with bourbon barrels for lingering, velvety richness.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Sweet and bold cinnamon, bourbon, caramel, and chocolate up front, with a hint of plum, raisin, and moderate boozy alcohol.”

Flavor: “Bold cinnamon and heat up front, with the barrel character following closely behind, coming through as bourbon, almond, and toffee, with caramel malt sweetness and milk chocolate. There’s a nice heat from the peppers. Finish is spicy but not overwhelming.”

Overall: “Bourbon, cinnamon, and vanilla all underlined and tied together with the barrel character. Sweet cinnamon on display with the base beer serving to support all the crazy flavor but not getting in the way. A delicate and masterful balancing act pulling these flavors together in such a clear and compelling way.”
