Well this was a nice surprise at a recent bottle share. A fantastic variant on their already delicious Mexican Cake. The only probably is trying to decide if I like this better, or the base...it's close, but honestly I think I prefer the regular Mexican Cake. It's already just about perfect.

2016 vintage

L - Has the normal thick black poor with a one finger espresso colored head. Swirl around the glass and it's leaves oily legs. Definitely an awesome look to it.

S - Cinnamon and peppers with coffee grounds at the back of the smell. Definitely an enticing aroma that brings a new flavor forward with each smell.

T - Cinnamon, vanilla and coffee at first, midway the peppers hit then the coffee along with cocoa nibs come out at the ending.

F - A little bit under medium bodied and low carbonation. A smooth body with well hidden abv.

O - The coffee just adds another layer of depth to an already great beer. Did not disappoint!

L: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a black color and a thick consistency. There was a small amount of tan-colored, foamy head that quickly dissipated. Not a whole lot of lacing.

S: A big, enticing aroma of coffee, spices, and a lot of chocolate.

T: Tasted of a bit of dark chocolate, cinnamon, habanero peppers, a little nutmeg, coffee (less than you would have expected), vanilla, and some roasted malt. Basically the flavor is Mexican Cake with coffee, but even more dynamic. Incredibly complex and flavorful.

F: A fair amount of carbonation with an extremely smooth finish. Full-bodied.

O: Mexican Coffee Cake is an excellent stout that's incredibly easy to drink. Well made and drinkable.

Pitch black and viscous with a small dark tan head and nice lace. Big aromas on this. Notes of huge coffee, cinnamon, vanilla, slight pepper heat, toffee, lightly burnt sugar and malt. Thick, creamy and slightly dry but coating. Fantastic stout that lives up to the hype for me.
