|Lost my photo of this beer, borrowed this one from http://beerandrecordsinmexicocity.blogspot.com|
Beer Type: American Double / Imperial Stout
Appearance: Brown pint bottle with a white and green label in what I think of as the Cucapá style. Beer poured a very dark black/brown with a thick tan head.
Smell: Dark chocolate malt, a hint of molasses and spice, and just barely a bit of hops. Smells damn fine!
First Drink: Earthy stout flavors - chocolate, caramel, a bit woody, and again just a bit of hops bite.
Mouthfeel: Very thick mouthfeel, a little tacky, but goes down smooth with just a bit of carbonation that keeps the beer flavor going.
Last Drink: More of the bitter hops coming through now, and the high ABV is hidden fairly well.
Drinkability: A beer with a lot of flavor that seems tailor made for slow drinking.
Notes: First beer I have had from this brewery and it seems extremely well crafted! Looking forward to trying more brews from Cucapá.
Verdict: 4.5 out of 5. A solid stout made in Mexico. Not overly complex but it hits all the right points on time.
