I was quite surprised by how little of the spice of Mexican Cake has survived in Coffee Cake - the overriding adjunct is very much so the coffee.

But then, in the very last tiny pour from the bottle, there's a whoooooole lot of savory heat and spice.

My pour, however, was quite sedate with just a bit of spicy edge and lots of rich, acidic coffee. It's certainly no dessert stout, and definitely not on a level with bourbon barrel-aged Mexican cake - but this is a very worthy bottle with a lot going for it.

I just wanted to clarify for others that this was never bottled. Rumor is that it will be bottled in July of 2014 but that is rumor. Very solid at the brewery, enjoyed this. Just wanted to clarify for those who were trying to trade for it.

Overall an excellent brew.

This beer is delicious. It has a TON of cinnamon, so much so that it reminds me of Abraxas. That being said, the chiles are muted compared to regular Cake. But also, THIS ISN'T BARREL-AGED. The trade forums are fucking laughable with this beer. Would you trade a limited wild, or BA beer for Abraxas? No? Didn't think so. Then why would you for this beer? Get a fucking grip people.
