Bottle shared at dld. Poured black with thin dark tan head. Aroma of apple and bourbon. Super smooth milky bourbon apple taste. Killer

UPDATED: APR 14, 2014 This beer has officially grown on me. I recapped the 1/3 of the bottle that was left and opened it this morning and it’s actually really fucking complex, sweet and cinnamony and vanilla and cocoa. It really captures the spirit of "mexican chocolate cake" in a way I didn’t appreciate last night, maybe because of some of the other beers I had around it, maybe because I wasn’t in the mood, who knows, but I admit I was wrong.

12/II/14 - 1Pt. 6Fl. Oz. bottle as "Bourbon barrel" @ De Hopduvel (Gent) - bottled: 6/VI/13 or VI/6/13 (2014-185) Thanks to Bobochamp for sharing the bottle!

Clear dark brown beer, no head, just a few bubbles floating atop the beer. Aroma: oh my, the vanilla is big on this one! But other stuff as well, bourbon, alcohol, caramel, fudge, brownie, lots of dried fruits, dark chocolate, ginger bread (actually more like "peperkoek" for the Dutchies) probably because of the cinnamon, but it’s more spicy and complex than just cinnamon. MF: nice soft carbon, full body. Taste: immediate hot burn from the peppers on the tongue, lots of peperkoek (ginger bread), pretty sweet and malty, molasses, chocolate (both milk and dark), vanilla, spices. Aftertaste: more ginger bread ("couque de Dinant"), cinnamon, spices, hot pepper, chocolate, some mocha, caramel. Holy bimbam, this is good stuff!!!

Bottle shared by WW late night @ Busy Bee post RRBS. Thanks WW! This was also very nice. I think I might these ba mexican cakes a little more than ba versions of CC Hunahpu as they are very similar type beers, but the barrels just tend to lend their services better to MC for whatever reason. Yum.

Thanks Bobochamp! Oily black appearance, no foam. Medium carbonation. Aroma of roasted malts and vanilla, also fruity and hints of cocoa. Complex beer, full body. Red peppers in the aftertaste together with the bourbon. Boozy beer, the sweetness is a bit too overwhelming.

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

Mexican Cake Supertrade Series Beer with jrob21, Westmeister, and deadCATAtlanta Beer #3. Best of the barrel aged series in my opinion. Pours a very dark brown with tan head. Thick bodied. Chocolate, spice, and booze are all over the nose. Sweet to spicy ratio is beautifully balanced by bourbon barreling. Bottle - Westbrook Brewery - Charleston, SC
