Bottle into an HF Tulip

S - Tart beer, slight vinegar. Sweet vanilla and chocolate with a spicy pepper to it. Slight metallic and blood that reminds me of a Flanders

T - Spicy peppers and chocolate. Slight red wine vinegar to it that adds some tartness. Vanilla and caramel adds some sweetness. Lingering heat on the backend

M - Light body with some spice and pepper heat and a dry, tannin presence from the red wine

O - The Red Wine version of Mexican cake reminds me of the slightly tart / sour version of the three. It gives you the base Mexican Cake stout and adds a good amount of tartness and tannins from the Red Wine barrel. I thought this one was good but not as good as Napa BCBS or or the other Mexican Cake version.

Apperance is dark brown with thin white head and a tinge of purple. Nose features plenty of chocolate and hot pepper. The red wine adds a nice acidity and fruitiness to an already robust and spicy stout. Flavor starts with chocolate and the red wine shines next. It really mellows out the base beer and keeps the peppers in check. Mouthfeel is a bit heavier than the base. Overall, quite a tasty beer. The red wine definitely helps the base.
