Year of New Beer: Snake Cake, West 6th Brewing (Lexington)

Written By: Dion on 07/24/2015

Decadently sweet on the nose as layers of chocolate, silky vanilla, and creamed coffee hit in waves. On the tongue the depth is no less significant, as roasted malts blend seamlessly with charred oak and hints of bourbon, backed by a milky cocoa and marshmallow sweetness. It's taken me a while to get around to trying this one, but it's well worth the wait. Do yourself a favor and visit The Barrel Room at W6th some weekend, and maybe you'll be lucky enough to experience Cake.
