L: Had this beer on-tap at Westbrook's tasting room, poured into a snifter glass. Had a dark brown / black color and a thick, opaque consistency. There was a quarter inch of foamy, tan-colored, somewhat long-lasting head. Average lacing.

S: A very nice aroma of chocolate, malt, rye whiskey, spices, and chili peppers.

T: Tasted of a bit of malt (mostly in the finish), some spices (cinnamon, in particular), a good shot of chocolate (always welcome), a decent bit of rye (more than expected), and some chili peppers (a nice amount of heat). This is a focused, subtle, and well-constructed flavor. Quite tasty.

F: An average amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: Another well made version of Mexican Cake. Drinkable.
