Bolero Snort El Moochador

I’ve never been a fan of wrestling, but the art on the label for this beer was super cute. Let’s see how it was.

ABV: 11%

Style: American Double/Imperial Stout

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “The newest big boy in our stout line up 💪 El Moochador 🇲🇽 Stepping into the ring at 11%, this imperial Stout was conditioned on cinnamon 🍫 cocoa ☕️ coffee 🍦 vanilla and a blend of 🌶 Ancho, Guajillo, Mulato and Pasilla peppers. Are you ready to rumbull?!? Limited 12oz cans + draft in NJ. Extremely limited PA/MA.”

Random: Why are all of the emojis necessary?!?

This beer poured with a two finger, light brown head. It dissipated at a moderate pace and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was a dark brown, almost black, that no light could get through. There was no carbonation visible as a result. The nose was filled with milk chocolate, hot peppers and cinnamon and coffee. There was also a sweet vanilla note as well. The taste was much of the same. I picked up a lot of sweetness with chocolate and cocoa powder. Cinnamon and nutmeg came through next, along with a slight heat from the peppers. I really wish there was a bit more heat. The alcohol was really noticeable to me and I wish it was toned down a bit. The body was thick and chewy with light carbonation. It had a lengthy and sweet finish with chocolate and alcohol. I enjoyed this beer, but I wish the rough edges were smoothed out a bit. I wouldn’t rush back to have this one again.

Untappd Rating: 3.5/5.0
