Tap @ Westbrook 

 Appearance: Pitch black with off-white creamy head 

 Aroma: Coffee, chocolate 

 Taste: Big time coffee that transitions into dark bittersweet chocolate 

 Palate: Big, smooth mouthfeel 

 Overall: Impressive that the coffee can push through this big beer. Really good coffee flavor without acidity.

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.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Black. Medium khaki head and a thin collar. Stains the glass a little. Strong coffee aroma. Cinnamon equally strong. A bit of green pepper aroma, too. Coffee dominates the flavor. Spices aren't far behind. A bit of dark chocolate before a spicy pepper finish. Medium heavy. Coffee seems to mute a bit of the peppers, which I don't mind.
