This beer was close to undrinkable. Mexican cake is one of my favorite beers and I always chase the variants. Super disappointing. Drain pour

This poured out as a rich oily black color with a strong brown head on top. The smell of the beer has some good sweetness on the nose, plenty of coffee and spice on the nose. The taste of the beer has some very subtle barrel qualities to it along with the coffee and spice in the finish. The feel of the beer is full bodied. Overall this beer is very good, was fun to try it.

Tan head that fades down. Black in color.

Thick and fudgy. Lots of peppers show here. Very hot and spicy. Nice barrel presence.the cognac adds a nice sweetness to it. Vanilla and spice. Cinnamon. Lots of chocolate. Oaky.

Full bodied. Nice feel. A little roast in the finish with peppers.

Great beer. Everything works with this one.
