Poured a black color with aromas of chocolate fudge with some sweet apple brandy and some light spicy pepper. Flavors were brownies soaked in Apple brandy with some light heat from the peppers. The best of the 3 variants.

Bottle - Pours dark brown w/ tan head. Sweetness, chocolate, cinnamon, and vanilla in the nose. A much sweeter taste plus chocolate, vanilla, and cinnamon w/ a slightly less pepper back end. Still good!

Mexican Cake Supertrade Series Beer with jrob21, Westmeister, and deadCATAtlanta. This was my least favorite of all the Mexican Cake varietals. Scent is chocolate and apples. Pours a deep dark brown with dark tan head. Spice is brought out further by the aging. Thick with spice having entropic effect on carbonation. Bottle - Westbrook Brewery - Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina

12/II/14 - 1Pt. 6Fl. Oz. bottle as "Apple-Brandy barrel" @ De Hopduvel (Gent) - bottled: 6/VI/13 or VI/6/13 (2014-186) Thanks to Bobochamp for sharing the bottle!

Clear dark brown beer, no head. Aroma: earthy start, woody notes, caramel, tobacco, some dried fruits, subtle notes of green apple peel, alcohol, "thick" sweet small, can I call it molasses? Also lots of vanilla and caramel, crème brûlée on warming up. MF: soft to no carbon, full body. Taste: sweet and sugary start, then caramel, pretty sour touch, chocolate, hot chillies, sour green apple skin, alcohol burn. Aftertaste: chocolate, caramel ,vanilla, pretty sour in the throat as well, more alcohol, soft bitterness and hot chillies. Good, but I preferred the Jack Daniels version, seemed stronger and more complex as well to me.

Thanks Bobochamp! Dark oily black colour. Soft carbonation. Complex beer, full body. Aroma of roasted malts, vanilla and red peppers. Fruity with notes of apple brandy. Better than the Jack Daniel’s batch.

65cl, new exclusive American brew Anno 2013, with cacao, vanilla, cinnamon and chili peppers, thx to Secret Santa!, very complex spicy Stout, roasted/spicy and slightly alcoholic/fruity, yet not too heavy, balanced, cloudy, small head, very good brew, yet very expensive!

Truly a remarkable beer. Nose gives apple, cinnamon spice, some cocoa. Taste follows suit, but has a really excellent meshing of the apple character with the spice notes and the chocolate sweetness isn’t overwhelmingly rich to take those flavors to the background. Somehow manages to not taste boozy at all, and the apple flavor comes extremely naturally rather than tasting like flavored alcohol. I wouldn’t say this is as good a pure stout as AB Hunahpu, probably because the base beer isn’t in the same realm of awesomeness, but it’s got a flavor profile that really differentiates itself. Extremely grateful to have had a nice large glass of this.
