Night Shift Brewing – Night Shift El Lechedor – 750 ml bottle poured into a goblet. 7.5% abv.
Appearance: Pours an inky black. An effervescent khaki head that falls quick.
Aroma: Pepper oil, nutmeg, cinnamon covered almond, lime leaf.
Taste: Sharp cinnamon/nutmeg, softened quickly by the chocolate notes. A little oaky but not much bourbon characters. Cola, dark chocolate. Coffee.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, effervescent.
Overall: This falls under the classy column of the Mexican chocolate inspired beers. Everything falls into place, and has a very drinkable body rather than a thick slow sipper. Very well done.
