Bottle courtesy of my buddy. Cheers, Zack! Pours a deep stout brown/ black with a dark tan head. Nose is chocolate, chili peppers, cinnamon, vanilla, and lovely oak, vanilla, and barrel notes. Flavor is sweet apple brandy followed by chocolate, vanilla, chilis, cinnamon, vanilla, and more brandy on the finish. This was an awesome beer and I could probably kill a case single-handedly.

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.

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.
