Nose and taste of Cinnamon anise vanilla along with more standard stout-y roasted notes. Palate is a bit thin for the IS style, but this is a great beer.

Spiced, strong notes of cocoa, vanilla, black with a good brown head, medium/full body, pleasant carbonation, again strong notes of cocoa, good spiced final with an exremely balanced warming sensation...this beer is quite perfect, awesome!

Mexican Cake is the most amazing Imperial Stout to ever touch my lips. My personal favorite was 2015 as it was like drinking velvet. Westbrook has made succeeded in making one of the most coveted beers for those in the know. Luckily I lived in the Charleston area for a number of years and was able to taste it each year. I drove back a few weeks ago solely to buy this beer.

Aus der Flasche (Version 2015) 2015-09 getrunken. Nichts für schwache Nerven dieses Stout das mit cocoa nibs, vanilla beans, cinnamon sticks, and fresh habanero peppers gebraut wurde.Was für eine Aromaexplosion wo u,a, die Habanero Chili den Gaumen angenehm und durchaus balanciert aufwärmt. Spitzenklasse!

Sweet chocolate, coconut hints of vanilla and liquorice. Small notes of roastiness. Some bitterness to balance the sweetness and it is enough.

Looks good with its creamy head. Aroma and flavour are very spicy. Light cinnamon and pepper. Very light bodied.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2017 Big bottle at home. Pitch black, slim creamy brown head. Roasted malty coffee and chocolate, pralines, red fruits, vanilla, cinnamon, faint habanero peppery, quite alcoholic. Lingering aftertaste. Good body, soft mouthfeel, low carbonation.

Not totally fresh, very well balanced but we couldn’t find the chilli (supposedly inside!). At taste Olut Club.

Shared bottle at Olut. Extreme dark black, almost no head. Old rum cinnamon and vanilla aroma. Smells like a sweet chocolate desert. Well balanced between sweet and bitter. Cinnamon. A but spicy and hot, but not too explicit.
