Tan head. Black color.

This bourbon cake wasn't as good as the 2015 or the 2016. Maybe because it was 2+ years old when I had it. The peppers and heat weren't there and that's what I like. It is still a nice beer, but just not what I like out of cake. Fudge, chocolate, cinnamon, and bourbon all showed. A little thinner that the newer bourbon cakes.

Pour is jet black with a caramel head. Nose has more cocoa than the tequila, drier woody bourbon, light peppery spice, a touch of chocolate cake malt. Flavor is a bit brighter, more chocolate cake/fudge malt, peppery spice, bourbon is very light, wood is a touch charred. Body is a bit thinner than the tequila, boozier and not from the bourbon, slight oily feel.

22oz bottle share poured in to a snifter

Pours pitch black with a one-finger creamy tan head that retains nicely, eventually settling to a thin layer on top. Classic Mexican aroma of cocoa, vanilla, cinnamon & chili. The bourbon barrel aroma is subtle, but noticeable. Upon tasting, I first notice that the chili heat has subdued while in the barrel, which is a welcomed change. The spices seems to have blended in the barrel, providing an extra element of coconut. Light oak barrel and a hint of bourbon follow, before finishing with more chocolate and cinnamon. Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and finish. Barrel aging has made this beer better IMO. I still prefer the Double Barrel version though.

Smell is sweet liquor and chocolate. Taste lightly vanilla, chocolate, roasted coffee, and mild cinnamon. Mouth feel is rich and full. The head is not immediately apparent, but lingers pleasantly in the aftertaste. One of the best examples of the style I've ever had.
