Poured dark black from the bottle with aromas of chocolate, earth, light spicy pepper, some roast and light bourbon. Flavors follow suit chocolate, light pepper some bourbon and booze, a solid imperial stout that I could enjoy all day.

This one poured an inky black color with a beige head. roma was of whiskey, fudge, light sapices and coffee. Flavor was spices, whiskey, and fudge, melded together very well. was not a huge fan of the base beer, but this one is great.

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2014 Bottle shared thanks to a kind soul at DLD. Pours a deep dark brown with medium brown head. Aroma is fudge, chillies, some coffee. Taste is sweet with a nice heat in the finish.Really awesome and way better than the standard Mexican Cake.

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 its actually really fucking complex, sweet and cinnamony and vanilla and cocoa. It really captures the spirit of "mexican chocolate cake" in a way I didnt appreciate last night, maybe because of some of the other beers I had around it, maybe because I wasnt 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 its 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.
