Awesome. Chocolatey goodness with a blast of cinnamon and some spiciness at the end.

Mexican Cake 2015.
You get the initial rush of cinnamon on the nose followed by sweet cocoa. The pour is thin with very little head. The habanero finish is fantastic improves as the beer warms. This is one of the best blended beers. The heat is pleasant but not overpowering. It is one of the few beers that I have traded for even having a few bottles in the cellar.
