12oz bottle, served in a snifter glass. Pours a medium cola brown body, half finger offwhite head, good retention, no lacing. Smell is fudge, light cinnamon, a bit of cocoa and milk chocolate, trace bourbon. It integrates reasonably well and gives off the aroma of a "cake", fitting the name. Flavour is slightly watery, but reasonable cinnamon presence with a milk chocolate, cocoa and a bit of slight bourbon to it. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, slightly thin and watery, slightly undercarbonated. Overall, a solid value with a nice integrated flavour with the adjuncts.

12 ounce bottle into a snifter. Bottled 3/20/17, had 4/28/17.

Pours a cola color, mostly opaque, with a half inch head and some spotty lacing. Smells of malt, light spices, vanilla, some chilies, light bourbon, a kind of fruity aroma- not dark fruit. The taste is malt, chilies, vanilla, light bourbon, light spices. A fair amount of heat, the fruity aroma is also a fruity flavor. Smooth, a good medium to full body, appropriately carbonated.

Maybe my palate wasn’t cleared from the previous beer, maybe a bad night for the style, but this was unlike any other Mexican Cake-like beer I have had before. And not in a good way. I still have a bottle. I will update this, if it’s better.
