I just wanted to clarify for others that this was never bottled. Rumor is that it will be bottled in July of 2014 but that is rumor. Very solid at the brewery, enjoyed this. Just wanted to clarify for those who were trying to trade for it.

Overall an excellent brew. (268 characters)

This beer is delicious. It has a TON of cinnamon, so much so that it reminds me of Abraxas. That being said, the chiles are muted compared to regular Cake. But also, THIS ISN'T BARREL-AGED. The trade forums are fucking laughable with this beer. Would you trade a limited wild, or BA beer for Abraxas? No? Didn't think so. Then why would you for this beer? Get a fucking grip people. (382 characters)

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Black. Medium khaki head and a thin collar. Stains the glass a little. Strong coffee aroma. Cinnamon equally strong. A bit of green pepper aroma, too. Coffee dominates the flavor. Spices aren't far behind. A bit of dark chocolate before a spicy pepper finish. Medium heavy. Coffee seems to mute a bit of the peppers, which I don't mind. (383 characters)

Had during Brewvival 2012! Served from tap into a Brewvival sampler imperial pint. Poured pitch black with a minimal brown head. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of roasted malt, coffee, pepper, and vanilla. The flavor was of roasted malt, sweet malt, coffee, and pepper. It had a heavy feel on the palate with mild carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. I was actually a little disappointed in this one as I was expecting to give it at least all 4.5's going into it, but it just fell a little short of what I was expecting. However, this was still a solid brew without a doubt. It was served ice-cold which masked quite a few of the flavors and aromas so I used that time to catch up on notes while it warmed up some. This was a good call as the pepper made itself known after warming up and made the brew much more enjoyable. Really glad I got the chance to try this one a few days after having the regular version. A definite must try if you get the chance. Tick. (1,015 characters)

22oz glass poured into a tulip at the brewery.

It looks black as oil. Minimal head/lacing.
Smells of coffee, slight cinnamon and peppers. Coffee is very overpowering on the nose.
Having had the regular, I would say the coffee actually brings out the spice a little bit more. Overall, a delicious beer full of coffee, cinnamon, chocolate, and pepper. (350 characters)
