Holy hell what a beer. Gives BA Hunahpus a serious run for its money. Wow. Black pour, dense reddish brown head. Tons of dark chocolate, peppers, very light smoke, cinnamon, vanilla, the barrel flavors are integrated seamlessly. I was blown away by this beer.

Yowzer this was good. Tried first at the source then this past weekend @ the Square Pub for green chili fest. Oily black pour with no head. Aroma was big time cinnamon and dark roasted malt, slight hint of chili heat, sweet vanilla. Flavors were full of dark cocoa, sweet vanilla, cinnamon and a perfect chili heat in the back of the throat. Mouthfeel was viscous and slick, light carbonation. Really well executed. Tasted next to a Hunahpu’s I may not know the difference...

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2013 Cask. Pitch black pour with no head and a mocha ring. Taste is big, bold, awesomeness. Char, mild bourbon, vanilla, light cinnamon pop, lingering sweet cocoa with the mild green/hot pepper finish. Watch out Mexican Cake this thick sipper is solid and complex for sure. The peppers and other ingredients meld well for a bombastic flavor. Damn.
