2017 vintage.

A: Pours black with a thin cap of medium brown head that fizzles out to a ring immediately.

S: Dark coffee and a lot of cinnamon (but not too much), rich dark chocolate and vanilla, light roast, and a little sweetish pepper.

T: Dark chocolate and cinnamon, followed up by a bit of black coffee, earthy vanilla and a tinge of roast, very mild heat provides some nice complexity without asserting itself too much. Fairly dry, actually, though a mild sweetness supports the flavors nicely. Nice balance and complexity.

M: Medium-full body and medium carbonation, sharp enough to cut through some of the heft.

O: Really tasty and well executed adjunct stout. Flavors are almost perfectly balanced. Coffee is lighter than expected given this is a coffee stout.

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.
