UPDATED: JUL 1, 2012 Keg at the Craft Beer Co. Pours a pitch black colour with a big brown head. Long lasting foam. Aroma is huge and bold: roasted malts, coffee, vanilla and cocoa beens. A hint of tartness as well. Taste is mostly sweet, with chocolate, coffee, roasted notes and vanilla, some tartness again and light hot spicy sensation from the chilli peppers. Bold body with good carbonation. Overall, extremaly enjoyable, flavourful and magnificent. All the ingredients are easily identified, no one prevails and they work perfectly together, amazing.

Sample from draft, poured a deep dark black colour with a mocha head. Nose is intense dark roasted malt, big allmost overpowering coffee notes, sweet dry cinnamon Rolls, vanilla Cream, raisins, sweet chocolate, and light pepper heat. Pretty intense on the coffee, on pair with the regular version

Bottle shared by Tom. Nose is huge in cinnamon and coffee. Lot of fudge. The spicing seems significantly lower than regular Mexican cake which is weird as I like the heat. Light vanilla and light mouthfeel. I don’t think this is as good as regular cake.

Thanks Matthew! Near black body with a small, beige collar. Coffee dominates the aroma. While the scent is certainly pleasant and alluring, I feel that the more subtle aspects of what Mexican Cake has to offer are buried under the dominant coffee character. This holds true for the flavor profile as well. Still, a tasty beverage, though I prefer the standard version.

Coffee adds great flavor and aroma to the base beer. A little thin, but tastes great.

2015 bomber with gold/beige/yellowish wax. Thanks to HOPSareKEY for sharing. The adjuncts are really popping on this one. Coffee, cinnamon, chilli, vanilla, chocolate, fudge brownies. A full on flavor assault that’s blended perfectly. More flavor in one sip than some breweries can offer in their entire lineup. This is the best in the cake lineup.
