Mexican Stout by Ship Bottom Brewery was judged as a 30A spice, herb or vegetable beer as defined in the Beer Judge Certification Program Style Guidelines revised in 2015.

Aromas of dark chocolate, vanilla and coffee are evident along with the distinct influence of Chile peppers which combine with alcoholic heat to warm the nostrils.

Deep brown (almost black) in color, opaque with a big tan head that stood up nicely.

Lots going on here. A rich bakers chocolate flavor is accompanied by spicy cinnamon and vanilla notes and supports the hot peppery quality of this beer, which does not overwhelm the base beer.

A medium-bodied beer with ample carbonation, no burnt malt astringency and the firm presence of alcohol. A fine complement for Mexican fare with plenty of gusto.
